Scope and Content

Feofees in trust, Owen Wood of Rhosmor and Richard Prydderch of Myfyrian [and of the Inner Temple]; arrangements for jointure and priority of succession; lands enfeoffed comprised Plas yng Ngwydryn, one great barn with appurtenances, Tyddyn y Cefn and Tyddyn y Cefn Ucha, Tyddyn Richard ap John Grythor, Tyddyn Cwtta, Tyddyn y Brynllwyn, and Tir y ffynnionne.

While this document makes Judith's husband to be Maurice (or Morris) Meredith, son of Thomas Meredith, the Pedigrees say she was married to the nephew of Morris. Of the feofees Owen Wood represented the interest of the young wife [his brother Hugh was married to Judith's niece], while the Prytherchs of Myfyrian were relations and close neighbours of the Merediths. Some of the most prominent men in the county acted as witnesses either of the sealing or of the seisin: William Owen of Frondeg, Henry Price of Bodowyr, Richard Meyrick of Bodorgan, and several others.
