!ASSUMPTION: because of the extreme number of children, the first 3 marriages

have been assumed to have taken place at the same time. The children in the

4th and 5th marriages have been separated from the others, because of the

time periods in which they were married, which definitely places them later

then the other children.

Brychan

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brychan Brycheiniog was a legendary 5th-century king of Brycheiniog (Brecknockshire) in South Wales.

Life

Celtic hagiography tells us that Brychan was born in Ireland, the son of a Prince Anlach, son of Coronac, and his wife, Marchel, heiress of the Welsh kingdom of Garthmadrun (Brycheiniog), which the couple later inherited. Upon his father's death, he returned to Garthmadrun and changed its name to Brycheiniog.[1] Brychan's name may a Welsh version of the Irish name Broccán and that of his father Coronac may represent Cormac.[2] The Life of St. Cadoc by Lifris (c. 1100) portrays Brychan fighting Arthur, Cai and Bedivere because of King Gwynllyw of Gwynllwg's abduction of his daughter St. Gwladys from his court in Talgarth.

[edit]Portraiture and veneration

He is occasionally described as an undocumented saint [3] but the traditional literature does not call him a saint, referring to him as a patriarch instead, and he has no churches named for him.[4] A 15th century stained glass window in the parish church at St Neot in Cornwall, supposedly depicts Brychan, seated and crowned, holding in his arms eleven children. This, however, has been described by a standard modern guide as "God the Father with souls in his lap".

[edit]Children of Brychan

According to Christian tradition, Brychan married three times: Prawst ferch Tydwal, Banhadlwedd ferch Banadi and Gwladys, and had a very large family. These are mentioned in several manuscripts, including those by William Worcester, John Leland and Nicholas Roscarrock. The number of children attributed to him varies from twelve to sixty-three, the number most frequently encountered being twenty-four. There are two main lists however, one of Welsh origin and one of Cornish origin. Most of his children appear to have travelled from Brecon to evangelise Cornwall and North Devon, where they are now venerated, but there is little agreement between the two lists. Some are referred to as being 'in Manau' which has led to associations of Brychan with Manaw Gododdin in modern Scotland; although the Isle of Man seems more likely.

The numbers of children may have grown over time, as more and more seculars as well as saints wished to claim descent from one of the 'Holy Families of Britain'. Listed below are children from Welsh, Cornish, Irish and Breton sources:

[edit]Sons in Welsh sources

The sons listed in the Cognacio Brychan, De Situ Brecheniauc and the genealogies of Jesus College MS 20 are Cynog, Rhain Dremrudd, Clydwyn, Arthen, Papai, Dingad, Berwyn and Rhydog. Also listed, but not in all three, are Cynon, Pasgen, Cylflifer, Marthaerun and Rhun. Other Welsh sources claim the following additional sons: Caian, Cynbryd, Cynfran, Cynin, Dogfan, Dyfnan, Dyfrig, Hychan, Llecheu, Neffei, Rhawin, Llofan, Llonio, Heilin, Afallach, Gwynnen and Gwynnws.

[edit]Daughters in Welsh sources

The De Situ Brecheniauc lists: Meleri, Hunydd, Gwladys, Ceingar, Tudglid, Nyfain, Gwawr, Marchell, Lluan, Gwrygon Goddeu, Arianwen, Bethan, Ceinwen (Keyne), Cerddych, Clydai, Cynheiddon (identified with Saint Endelienta), Dwynwen, Eiliwedd, Goleudydd, Gwen, Lludd, Tudful, Tudwystl and Tybie. Other Welsh sources claim the following additional daughters: Beiol, Tydieu, Eufail, Hawystl, Edwen, Gwenrhiw, Tudwen, Callwen, Gwenfyl, Gwennan and Mwynwen.

[edit]Descendants in Cornish sources

Listed in the Life of Saint Nectan are, by his wife, Gwladys:

Adwen, Canauc (Cynog), Cleder (Clether), Dilic (Illick), Endelient (Endelienta), Helie, Johannes (Sion), Iona, Juliana (Ilud), Kenhender (Cynidr), Keri (Curig), Mabon (Mabyn), Menfre (Menefrewy), Merewenne (Marwenna), Morewenna (Morwenna), Nectanus (Nectan), Tamalanc, Tedda (Tetha), Wencu (Gwencuff, Gwengustle, name of Saint Nennocha), Wenheden (Enoder), Wenna (Gwen), Wensent, Wynup (Gwenabwy) and Yse (Issey).

According to Robert Hunt, of the holy children that settled in Cornwall, we learn that the following gave their names to Cornish churches

Johannes at St Ive

Endelient at St Endellion

Menfre at St Minver

Tedda at St Teath

Mabon at St Mabyn

Merewenne at Marhamchurch

Wenna at St Wenn

Keyne at St Keyne

Yse at St Issey

Morewenna at Morwenstow

Cleder at St Clether

Keri at Egloskerry

Helie at Egloshayle

Adwen at Advent

Lanent at Lelant

[edit]Irish sources

The Book of Leinster lists the following sons by Brychan's wife, Dína daughter of the King of the Saxons: Mo-Goróc, Mo-Chonóc (Cynog), Diraid, Dubán (Dyfnan), Cairinne (Caian), Cairpre, Iast, Ellóc (Dilic), Paan, Cáemán and Mo-Beóc,

[edit]Breton sources

Breton tradition says that Brychan married Menedoc daughter of Constantine, King of the Scots. Together they were the parents of Saint Nennocha.

King of Brycheiniog

The holy and right-believing King Brychan of Brecknock (b. circa 419) (also Brychain, Brecon, Brocanus) lived during the 5th Century in South Wales. He is famous for producing 24 children with his three wives, all of whom became saints known as the Tribe of Brychan; later becoming a hermit. His feast day is April 6. Life

St. Brychan was born in Ireland to King Anlach and Queen Marchel. Queen Marth was heiress of the Kingdom of Garthmadrun in Wales, to where they soon moved, residing at Y Fenni-Fach. At the age of four, St. Brychan was sent to be tutored by the blind St. Drichan along the River Ysgir. After seven years of education, St. Drichian asked young Brychan to bring him his spear, with which he pointed to a boar and stag that came out of a forest near a river of fish and beech tree dripping with honey. From this, St. Drichian predicted a bright future for St. Brychan.

When a war began between King Anlach and Irish usurper Banhadle, King of Powys, St. Brychan was sent as a hostage to the enemy's court when the opposing army proved stronger. Now a young man, St. Brychan was received well but soon fell in love with Banhadle's daughter, Banhadlwedd. Because the courtship was denied, he is said to have raped her.

Upon the death of Anlach, St. Brychan was allowed to return home with the pregnant Banhadlwedd. They came to the capital of Caer Efong, where St. Brychan was elevated to King by the local nobles. It was then that Banhadlwedd bore St. Cynog, whom St. Brychan had baptised and to whom he gave a gilded iron Armilla, or Torc from Heaven, as paternal recognition, which the child Cynog wore on his head.

St. Brychan became known as a goodly king, great patron of the Church, and observer of Her teachings. For this, the people renamed their land to Brycheiniog (known today as Breckknock) in his honour. Throughout his reign, the Holy King married thrice, producing 24 children who grew to become enlighteners of North Devon and Cornwall, some of whom also produced saintly offspring.

As good as he was to his people, St. Brychan was known to be ruthless to his enemies. After declining a proposal by a neighbouring king, St. Gwynllyw of Gwynllwg, to marry St. Brychan's daughter, St. Gwladys, she was kidnapped. St. Brychan pursued St. Gwynllyw, fighting a battle lasting days, until the High-King (King Arthur by legend) took St. Gwynllyw's side and ordered them to reconcile. Another time the King of Dyfed or Gwynedd raided Brycheiniog for glory, but discovering the action, St. Brychan slaughtered the army in battle, collecting the enemies' dismembered limbs as trophies.

Becoming old, St. Brychan abdicated his throne to his eldest legitimate son, Rhain Dremudd, and retired to Ynys Brychan to live as a hermit, where he reposed and was buried at an old age. Sources
