See Peter Bartrum, https://cadair.aber.ac.uk/dspace/bitstream/handle/2160/6516/TABLES%... (May 31, 2018; Anne Brannen, curator)

It is Darrell Wolcott who suggests that Ithel was the son of Coel ap Gweirydd.

Ithel also served at the courts of Llewelyn ap Seisyll and Cynfyn ap Gwerystan. He married Nest verch Cynfyn, sister of Efa verch Cynfyn, who married Ithel's beother Llewelyn. When Gruffudd ap Llewelyn became king, he made Ithel "pencynydd," the chief huntsman in charge of the hounds. For his service, he was granted lands on Pennant Melangell.

See Darrell Wolcott, "The Pedigree of Cynddelw Gam," http://www.ancientwalesstudies.org/id94.html for untangling and clarification of these lines. (January 16, 2016, Anne Brannen, curator)
