Hi there,

For those of you who don't know The Dictionary of Welsh Biography can be used as a primary source for Welsh Ancestry.

https://biography.wales/     Search in Search Field for Mostyn, this gives:-

https://biography.wales/search?query=mostyn&lang%5B%5D=en&sort=score&order=desc   - The first item gives:-

https://biography.wales/article/s-MOST-MOS-1301?&query=mostyn&lang[]=en&sort=score&order=desc&rows=12&page=1  - all about the Mostyn family of Mostyn Hall in Flintshire.

It has been used as a reference Source for https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Mostyn-14

To be pedantic: it would be a secondary source, not a primary source.

However, it is certainly an authoritative source.
Because this is Wikitree I must thank you for your pedantry. I would do it more personally if you called yourself something other than Anonymous. Happy New whatsit.
Agreed - but still needs to be carefully explored. The couple of chaps in the Welsh Biog from my family have [minor] errors of fact. Like all sources, only as good as the knowledge of person who wrote them!
