LLYWELYN o LANGEWYDD, or, LLYWELYN SION, an eminent Poet of Glamorgan, is distinguished, according to Mr. Owen, for having been appointed to collect the System of Bardism as traditionally preserved in the Gorsedd Morganwg, in which he presided in 1580. He fulfilled his commission with great industry and fidelity; and the result of his labours was submitted to subsequent Meetings of the Bards, and Edward Davydd was authorised to make some additions. And the Collections thus made, are preserved in the possession of Mr. Turberville, of Llan Haran. Llywelyn died in the year 1616. RHYS LLWYD AB RHYS AB RHISIART, an eminent Poet also, was a Native of this place: and flourished between the years 1420 and 1460.
