Notes for Ieuan Fychan ap Ieuan
According to the History of the Family of Mostyn of Mostyn, 1925, compiled by the 3rd baron Mostyn and T. Allen Glenn, the land upon which the present Mostyn Hall stands 'was acquired about five centuries ago by the marriage of IEUAN FYCHAN (died 1457), of Pengwern, Llangollen (and Tre Castell, Anglesey), with ANGHARAD daughter and heiress of HYWEL (or Howel), son of TUDUR AP ITHEL FYCHAN, and, according to N.L.W. MS. 1557, widow of Edward Stanley.' For how long this land had belonged to Hywel's ancestors the authors do not know, but they surmise that it formed part of the territory of Hywel's ancestor, Edwin of Tegeingl (see under Owain ab Edwin).

In 1301 ITHEL FYCHAN did homage and fealty to prince Edward, as earl of Chester, for his Flintshire estates. ' Hywel and his descendants, for the most part, held the lordship of Mostyn by lease until Sir Roger Mostyn (below) in the year 1631 secured possession of it in perpetuity.' The Pengwern (Denbighshire) estate, the birthplace of Ieuan Fychan, was the original home of this family; it has since been alienated. Gloddaeth, Caernarfonshire, came to the family shortly before 1460 through the marriage of HYWEL AP IEUAN FYCHAN (of Mostyn and Pengwern) with Margaret, heiress of Madog Gloddaeth (high sheriff of Caernarvonshire, 1325/6), and, as will be seen, Bodysgallen, in Caernarvonshire, was also a Mostyn house.

Full details of the earlier generations are given in the History. Ieuan, fourth son of Iorwerth Ddu (of the Pengwern family), entered the church and, as John Trevor II, was elected bishop of S. Asaph, 1395.

IEUAN FYCHAN AP IEUAN AB ADDA (of Pengwern and Mostyn) the husband of Angharad, was, according to the bard Guto'r Glyn, (see Phillipps MS. 2160 in the Cardiff Public Library; see also N.L.W. MS. 3027, i.e., Mostyn MS. 96), a bard and a harpist; on the maternal side he was second-cousin to Edmund, earl of Richmond, and Jasper Tudor, earl of Pembroke. In 1415 he was an esquire in the retinue of Thomas Fitzalan, earl of Arundel and Surrey and lord of Chirk. Ieuan's son, HYWEL AP IEUAN, followed the fortunes of the house of Lancaster; his kinsman, Jasper Tudor, sought refuge at Mostyn in 1464. Hywel's wife was Margaret, daughter and heiress of Gloddaeth.
