Edits for the wikitree profile of Gwaedthvod Fawr Ap Eunydd.


Revised Profile for Gwaithfoed


Gwaedthfod Fawr ap Eunydd (abt.1100-)

Birth and Parents

Wolcott suggests that his name should be Gwaethfoed ap Eunydd, of Meirionydd or "Gwaithfoed" [1][2]



Abt. 1130, Cadifor Ap Gwaethfoed

Abt. 1135, Cynillian Ap Gwaethfoed

His supposed 3 grandchildren were born around 1160-1165,

1160 Gwaithfoed Ap Cadifor (Main connection to the Phillips family abt. 1450.

1160 Ifor Ap Cadifor

1165 Iorweth Ap Cadifor


Lord of Cardigan


We can estimate that his death was somewhere around 1150, putting him at age 45-65, with two children.


Research Notes


A. Gwaithfoed of Meirionydd fits the current line perfectly with ancestors lining up, but puts his birth at abt. 1100, over 150 years after what's listed on the wikitree profile [1]

Wolcott notes that

"...We note that Bartrum derives this man from the Meirionydd family of Eunydd ap Cadifor ap Peredur Beiswrydd, but identifies him as the father of a Cadifor whose descendants are found in Ceredigion. He dates him exactly contemporary with the man he calls Gwaithfoed of Meirionydd. We suggest this second Gwaithfoed was actually a grandson of the first one we mentioned: Gwaithfoed ap Cadifor ap Gwaithfoed ap Eunydd, born c. 1160..." [1]

This might be worth taking into consideration, along with Wolcott's work, Sortiong out the Gwaithfoeds. [2]
