In particular, it features, John Lloyd of the Faenol estate, Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire and his efforts to build an estate, at home and in the Penllyn district of Merioneth. He died in 1615. In 1596, his daughter and heiress Anne (d. 1608) married John Price of Rhiwlas (d. 1613) and as a result, the Prices of Rhiwlas gained the Faenol estate.
