  BP1934 identifies Rhys as ancestor of the Hughes of Prestatyn & Feydor and of the Lloyds of Nant "whose line terminated with John Lloyd, of Nant, who left two daus. and co-heirs" Janet & Catherine. Griffith's Pedigrees (Tribe of Ednyfed Vychan, p389) shows that John Lloyd as grandson of this Rhys leaving us thinking either that BP1934 misphrased the description of Rhys or that Griffith omitted some generations. The date given by BP1934 for Catherine's husband is not inconsistent with the number of generations shown by Griffith.
