Notes for Goronwy ap Tudur Hen Lord of Penmynydd
Goronwy ap Tudur Hen (d.1338), Lord of Penmynydd was a member of the noble Tudor family of Penmynydd, Anglesey, North Wales and a descendant of Marchudd ap Cynan, Lord of Rhos, Lord Protector of Rhodri Mawr, King of Gwynedd and the ancestor of Owen Tudor and thereby of the Tudor dynasty.[1] An elegy was written to him by Bleddyn Ddu.[2]
He was the son of Tudur ap Goronwy (d. 1311) also known as Tudur Hen (Tudur the Elder), and Angharad ferch Ithel Fychan.

He served as a soldier in Scotland and may well have fought at Bannockburn in 1314. In 1318 he followed Sir Gruffudd Llwyd as Forester of Snowdon.

He married Gwerfyl ferch Madog, daughter of Madog ap Dafydd, Baron of Hendwr. They had two sons: Hywel, who gained position as a canon of Bangor Cathedral (and later as Archdeacon of Anglesey); the other son was Tudur, who was influential in North Wales and was the grandfather of Owen Tudor.

He was buried at Bangor
