    As a reward for his services and because of his status he would have been offered a daughter of the Prince of Powys in marriage. This would most likely have been a daughter of Cadwgan ap Bleddyn, who was part ruler of Powys with his step-brother Iorwerth ap Bleddyn (who was probably too young to have been her father). They probably moved to the family estates in Wiltshire before or around the time Cadwgan was killed by his nephew Madog ap Rhiryd.  
    Occupation  Shire Reeve under the Prince of Powys (who would have been Cadwgan ap Bleddyn) and may have served under William the Conqueror. He was certainly of the nobility but whether he ranked higher than esquire is not know.
