In his elegy to Tudur Aled he calls the latter his teacher, and the two poets are also grouped together in Ieuan ap Madog ap Dafydd's elegy on Syr Dafydd Trefor, the Anglesey poet and cleric. Many of his compositions are addressed to the Penrhyn family. It would appear that he died at Valle Crucis abbey, where he was buried. An elegy on his death was written by Dafydd Alaw. His will was proved 28 June 1527.
