Excerpt from The Consorts and Children of Gruffudd ap Llewelyn

Gruffudd also had a daughter, Nest, who married Trahaearn ap Caradog. This man, in 1075, succeeded Bleddyn ap Cynfyn as king of Powys, and probably also king of Gwynedd. Born c. 1035, Trahaearn had sons Owain and Llywarch (among others) who were born c. 1065/1070. These dates point to c. 1050 as the birthdate of Nest, with the marriage taking place shortly after Gruffudd's death in 1063.
Gruffudd had a second daughter, also named Nest, about 1056. It is known that this second Nest was the mother of a daughter, also named Nest, who married the Norman knight Bernard Newmarch. The husband of this c. 1056 Nest is widely cited by modern authors as the Norman man, Osbern fitz Richard. There are, however, no ancient or even medieval manuscripts which confirm that marriage.

Verch Gruffydd-8 and Gruffydd-5 appear to represent the same person because: these appear to be the same people; please merge.

the article quoted here does not support that Nest is the daughter of Guerta. The article talks of two daughters of Gruffudd who were both named Nest (b 1050 & 1056) who were born to his first wife (Nest, b c1024) and his second wife (Ealdgyth, b c1041).

Verch Gruffydd-8 and Gruffydd-5 are not ready to be merged because: too many differences - needs more research. Maybe they are different people?

I'm uncomfortable doing the merge - different mothers named. Different birth years (V_G 8) would've been 128 as stated below.
