According to Cwrt Mawr MS. 12 (629), he was a native of Maelor. In his to ' Saint Tydecho and the two parishes of Mowthwy,' having equally praised Llan-ym-Mawddwy and Mallwyd, he asserts that he yearns more for the latter than the former. He wrote poems in praise of Rhisiart ap Rhys ap Dafydd Llwyd of Gogerddan 'about 1520'; of Rhys ap Howel of Porthamyl, Anglesey, 'within the month of November 1539'; of Lewis Gwynn who died sometime about 1552; and of Siôn Wynn ap Meredith of Gwydyr who died 1559.
