The view that the later Perrots embellished their own lineage by allegedly adding extra generations using fabricated native genealogies could possibly be tested by detailed philological analysis. This may show whether these arwyddveirdd (herald/bards) pedigrees were in manuscript form centuries before the earliest surviving versions. "When a poem is approximately contemporary with a genealogy we may expect substantial agreement between the two, because the information for both probably came from the same source, the family itself. Up to the end of the sixteenth century poetry and genealogy often went together. Gutun Owain, Ieuan Brechfa, Lewys Morgannwg, Gruffudd Hiraethog, Wiliam Llyn, Simwnt Fychan and Lewys Dwnn are outstanding examples of poets who interested themselves in genealogy."Notes on Welsh Genealogical Manuscripts P.C.Bartrum
