Ynyr ap Cadfarch and Rhiengar

YNYR ap Cadfarch.
Born (probably about 850, based on the report of building the castle of Whittington)(about 875AD-S1); son of CADFARCH ap Gwrgant.

Ynyr was Lord of Chirk, Whittington, Oswestry, Maelor Cymraeg and Maelor Saesnaeg in Powysland. (S2).

He married Rhiengar. (S1,S2).

In the year 870, he built the castle of Whittington. (S2). However, S2 also says: Our timeline for this family would place the birth of Ynyr at c. 870. He may have resided at Whittington but the castle was still over 150 years in the future for Wales. The first stone castle at Whittington was built on the site of an earlier hill fort in the 13th century.

Daughter and Heiress of Lluddoca ap Caradog Freichfras, Lord of Hereford, Gloucester, Erging and Ewias. The Caradog Freichfras who was grandfather to Rheingar was the ninth century man of Rhos in north Wales, not the sixth century same-named man of Ewias. (S2).

CHILDREN of Ynyr ap Cadfarch and Rhiengar:
