    Seneschal of the Princes of Gwynedd, North Wales (9th in descent from Marchudd, Lord of Rhos, Lord Protector of Rhodri Mawr, King of Gwynedd)
    Seneschal and General to Llewelyn the Great, Prince of Wales (1173-1240) married, firstly, Tangwystl, daughter of Llowarch ap Bran, Lord of Menai, and, secondly, Gwenllian, daughter of Rhys ('The Lord Rhys') ap Gruffydd, Prince of Deheubarth (i.e. South Wales).
    By his first wife he had nine children, including Tudur, ancestor of the Griffiths of Penrhyn, and, by his second wife he had, amongst others, Goronwy, ancestor of the Tudor dynasty.
    The two lines later inter-married.
    Ednyfed was buried in his own chapel, now Llandrillo Church, which was enlarged to became the parish church after the previous one (Dinerth Parish Church) had been inundated by the sea during Ednyfed's lifetime. His tombstone, was reputed to lie near the altar of Llandrillo Church, now in a vertical position in one of the arches, but this is disputed as the name inscribed is an Ednyfed ap Bleddyn 'quondam vicarius' (sometime vicar) of the parish in the 16th century.
