Ap Jenkyn-2 and Ap Jenkin-12 appear to represent the same person because: Hi! I just proposed a merge of duplicate profiles for his dad, so these should be merged too. I asked that ap Jenkin-12 be protected because it had the lowercase "ap" instead of "Ap". If you feel strongly that the profile should be ap Jenkyn instead of Ap Jenkyn, please postpone this merge (instead of completing it). I've seen nothing that would argue one over the other, so either way. Just let me know, and change the name of Ap Jenkyn to ap Jenkin (I'm not a profile manager of either profile, so I can't change the LNAB), & we can get PPP switched from ap Jenkin-12 to the new name. Thanks!

sorta answered my own question - Bartrum supports m to (1) Elisbeth Vaughan & (2) Margred Mathew (& 3 to someone else, plus two mistresses). See Cydifor Fawr 15(A1). Cheers, Liz

I couldn't find support for all the wives in the sources listed. Do the ancestry links support them? I'm looking, because Richardson shows that Margred Mathew, 2nd wife of Morgan, is the mother of Sibyl/Margaret (wife of John St John and mother of my 12x-gr-grand Margaret St John-110).
