Seeking Early Wales experts - Brochwell Ap_Brenin-2

+3 votes
In cleaning up database errors, came across this 10th century Welshman, disconnected from anyone with empty birth dates. A google search found a supposed paternal relationship to Cadell ap Brenin.

This is out of my league. Perhaps someone can figure out what to do with him? Thanks.

His son is Ap_Brochwel-9 and you can see why they've parted company.   Welcome to Welsh genealogy.

Shouldn't he be merged, then?
Parents don't match, dates don't match...
I'm talking about merging away Brochwell who has no parents or any connections and an approximate birth year that is near meaningless. Trying to get rid of him please. Thanks.
His father is implied by the ap

Here's my desired outcome: I want to merge away Ap_Brenin-2 out of existence. I.e., delete him. I'm seeking a profile to merge him into.


There is a source to consider in the bio of Brochwell ap Brenin.
And  Ap_Brochwel-9 cannot be his son, for he is suppoost to be born 2 centuries earlier.

Welsh genealogies are like Biblical genealogies.  They come with no dates at all, and if you try to retrofit some, they won't work.  Different lines of inference will produce incompatible answers.

And sometimes two versions of the same person end up as two different people.
Well, I hope you can connect him to someone so he isn't floating out there all by his lonesome.

I'll check him off my list.
