  • Note: Rhys [Hen] ap Gruffydd married Joan de Somerville by 1339.

Rees ap Griffyn and his wife Joan (Sir Philip's daughter, aged 40 and more), are mentioned frequently. The IPM of Rees ap Griffith/ap Gruffutz [sic] the elder, knight, states that he died 10 May 30 Edward III, and held manors or land at Stokton, co. Warwick, Staynton, Benton and Wytton, co. Northumberland (held in right of his wife Joan), Orreby, co. Lincoln, Alrewas, Whichenover, Briddeshall and Tatenhull, co. Stafford, Blacwelle, co. Derby and in Nottingham. His wife, Joan, who "survies" was aged 40 and more [much more], and his son and heir Rees ap Griffutz was aged 30 years and more "at Christmas last." (CIPM 10:274-6). He also held land in Lansadorn, Talliares, Combleant, Kilsayn, Kayo, Matihlayn, Maynordeill, Ketheynoc, Kergerwyn, Perveth, Langiby, Bettous, Lanrustud, Generglyn, Pennarth, Lampeder, Drusselan, Glycothy and Penneynt, all in South Wales.
