Notes for Gruffyd AP MADOG FYCHAN
Gruffydd of Rhuddallt became a ward of his father in law, who died in 1309. Custody of his lands was then granted to Edmund Hakluyt, who sold the wardship to Roger Mortimer of Chirk. However, he probably stayed with the LeStrange family, as Roger Mortimer disputed the validity of the marriage in 1305. Gruffydd ultimately obtained possession of his lands in March 1321. He held the two lordships by Welsh barony (pennaeth), which required him to serve in the king's army with his men at the king's expense. In 1328, he settled his lands on himself and his wife in tail. In 1332 he had custody of the manor and castle of Ellesmere, recently granted to his brother in law Eubolo LeStrange. He died sometime after 1343.

Gruffydd was probably succeeded by his son Gruffydd Fychan II who is reported to have died shortly before 1370, and was the father of Owain Glynd┼Ár. However, some genealogical tables insert another generation with a Madog Fychan as son of Madog Crypl.
