About Tanged "Frenin Da" ap Padriarc (Fictitious)

This family is found in genealogies that have copied Dwnn's work, but the only evidence for this person is in the 16th century "Visitation of Wales," written by Lewys Dwnn. As Wolcott notes, "Outside the fertile imagination of an early 16th century genealogist, no family called "Meirchion ap Tanged ap Padriarc" is known to have existed. Even that writer may have not meant the latter as a name; in Welsh, the letters "d" and "t" are often used interchangably and pronounced as "t". And the Welsh word for "patriarch" is exactly the same as in English. The author may have simply been saying the family descended from "a good (or old) king, the patriarch"."
