Note:   [Rose Family.GED] He was first baronet of Gwindir in the Conway Valley of Northern Wales. S ir John had 10 sons. This Sir John wrote the book " The Historyof the Hou se of Gwerdir that was published in 1773. Sir John built the UpperGwed ir in 1604. The lower lower house of Gwedir was probably built buy his gre at grandfather, Meridith. Both houses were in Caruavionshire on the weste rn sode of the Conway opposite the town of Llanrwst. One of these houses w as mentioned in Saxton's map in 1578. Thew name Gwydir means Gwr( wate r) & tir(land). From "Welsh Manuscripts in the College of Arms": In Wales no one couldbe a freeman, inherit property, enjoy provelege s, or be received into the community unless he could prove ancestry f or a certain number of generations. The pedigree was the sole passpo rt to full citizenship and those that had the necessary linage were kno wn as "bonheddig". It was essential to know your pedigree for about 8 gene rations. There were the "bards" from the nobility that preserved this gene alogy. There are four basic pedigrees. The first is the early dynastic pe digrees before the 9th century which go back to the 5th century. The seco nd group is the modern genealogies or the pedigrees of the princes and th ey go from Rhodri Mawr in the 9th century to the fall of Llewelyn theLa st in 1282. The third group of pedigrees was the Nobles and the Chieftai ns which included the minor lords and the patriarcal rulers of the country side. These names are faithfully recorded in the College manuscripts. Aft er 1536 Wales was bulging with poor relations because the gentility follow ed the blood, not economic competence. The fourth group includes the Norm an and English Families. There was considerable intermariage between the W elch princes and the Anglo-Normab baronial class. In this manner a l ot of the Welsh land wasabsorbed by the native element. After about 17 60 there was a marked diminution of the genealogical industry in Waes. In 1536 when the country was divided into 13 shires like the English patte rn.In the Ancient Pedigrees of Gwynn thePrehistoric Kings of Britain a re listed on page 255.
