Judgement of Maredudd ap Rhobert,

Judgement of Mareduth, son of Rhobert, lord of Kedeweinc, on the controversies which arose between Gurgeneu and Benuen and Madoc, Ieuaf, and David, sons of Griffud Hyruein, and Caradoc, son of Grifri, and Ithael and Ioruerd, sons of Kefnerth, son of Gwin and others their coheirs of the one part and the men called fettaneit on the other, concerning the lands called Deupiu and Hirard, which were thus determined and settled. Lewelin, son of Ioruerd, lord of Arwistili, fixed an appointed day for all the said men at Llandinan that there, by the arbitration of good men, knowing the truth of that land the matter should be settled. But because Lewelin could not be present at that meeting he appointed him (Mareduth) in his place in that cause. Accordingly there came together, at the appointed day and place, many men, as well from Kedeweinc as from Arwistili. The men called fettaneit claimed no inheritance in the said lands, namely Deupiu and Hirard. At their request twenty four arbitrators, who are called in the Welsh language datuerwer, of the better men of Arwistili were accepted. They having discussed the truth of this cause diligently and prudently, arbitrated there, namely at Llandinan, that the men called fetteneit had nothing and ought to have nothing in the said lands, namely Deupiu and Hirard. After this was done there was discussion on that arbitration, and it was again adjudged that those men, namely, fetteneit were entirely disjudged from the lands for eternity. All these aforesaid things were done in the sight of good men whose names are underwritten. These are those who were present: John, son of Kenewreic, priest of Llandinan, Griffud, his son, Kenir, son of Cadugaun, abbot of Llandinan, Einniaun, son of Kenuelin, Gurgeneu the Little, ‘sengennab’ Llandinam, Ioruerd, son of Hewel, dean of the land, two stewards of Lewelin, Madoc Tanur and Einniaun, son of Edenewein, Eeinniaun and Grifri, sons of Ioruerd, son of Gurgeneu, bailiffs of that land, Cadugaun, son of Griffud, Griffud Coic, son of Griffud Carno, Miles, son of Ithael, Kediuor, son of John, Mareduth, son of Knetha, Griffud, son of Meilir, Griffud, son of Ieuuaf, Madoc Goch, Gurgeneu, son of Clasadein, Ithael, son of Karadoc. In addition these good men of Kedewein were present: Heilin, son of Hoideleu, David Coch, Ioruert Bochan, clerk, Cadugaun, son of Ioruerd, Ideneuet, son of Goronui, Einniaun, son of Budrihossan. And so all claim was lost on that day of the men who are called fetteneit, entirely for all time, concerning the said lands. So that the said judgement should remain ratified and stable for ever, without any reclaim, Maredud has corroborated the present writing with his seal.
