Note: `...Llewellyn Meyrick, (Meuric), who was a Captain of the Guard under King Henry VIII in 1509. He was also the first High Sheriff of County Anglesey, which office he held until his death. From the name 'Meuric' signifying 'Guardian' is derived the family surname which was in compliance with an act imposed under Henry VIII requiring that the name of every man should be borne by his descendants, there being no surnames in Wales prior to that time. Captain Meyrick married Margaret, daughter of roland, Rector of Aberfrom (Aberffraw) Anglesey. He died in 1538 (as is assumed by the date of his will). He had ten children, amoung whom was Reverend John Meyrick representing the next generation in the lineage.'
