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. 1 (289)). N.L.W. MS. 5270 (327) contains an englyn presumably by his son John.
