Ninnian (JG-1)

The death of Cynrig (JF-1) must have been important to the early writers of Wales.  His death, and the reprisal from his 1st cousins, is recorded in a number of sources. [ See Maund : pp. 4, 6, 93, 94 ]
The figure below shows the sons of Cynrig (JF-1).  Ninnian (JG-1) is the branch to my JONES family.

During this time period, the fighting age among the Welsh culture was 14.  Since the 1st cousins of Cynrig (JF-1) carried out the family revenge on his killers, his sons must have all been under fighting age.  This would place their birth after 1060 AD [ 1073 - 14 = 1059 ]  Certainly a rough time to grow up in Wales.  The brothers of Ninnian (JG-1) each produce their own family lines which include the line of Broughton (Ednyfed JG-15), and the line of Lloid (David JG-13).

The sons of Rhys Sais (JG-4) are shown in the following figure.  They are through the second son of Tudor Trevor (JC-1) and would have become the senior branch of the family tree. [ Oldest son had daughtered out.]

There names are as follows:  Tydyr (JH-6) , Elidir (JH-5) and Bleddyn (JH-4).  This Tydyr is the one named in Domesday Survery!  I add their names to the books of history which to this time have only given them as "the sons of Rhys Sais".
