Of Lloyd of Dolobran, near Meifod, Montgomeryshire; son of Dafydd Llwyd ab Ieuan (on whom see the article Lloyd of Dolobran) and his wife Eva; husband to Alice, daughter of Dafydd Llwyd of Llanarmon Mynydd Mawr. A number of his poems, in the strict metres, remain in manuscripts. They include some to Gilbert Humphrey of Cefn Digoll, Montgomeryshire (1596), Hywel and Siôn Fychan of [Llanfair] Caereinion (1599), Siôn Huws of Maes y Pandy, near Tal-y-llyn, and Doctor [ David ] Powel, bardic controversies (ymrysonau) between himself and Roger Cyffin, and, also, with Lewys Dwnn, and religious and moral poems. Bedo Hafesp composed an elegy on him (Bodewryd MS 1D (289)). NLW MS 5270B (327) contains an englyn presumably by his son John.
