The History of Lathom House

Records indicate the construction of the original house on the site in the 12th century as principal residence of the Lathom family. In the early 15th century the Lathom and Stanley families were joined by the marriage of Isabel de Lathom and Sir John Stanley, the younger son of Thomas the first Earl of Stanley, later to be made Earl of Derby following the battle of Bosworth in 1485. In 1496 the house was substantially remodelled into a substantial fortress by the Earl in preparation for a visit by his father-in-law King Henry VII.

Descendants of David Lloyd

David Lloyd of Mathavarn, Merioneth, Wales. Born about 1402.

It is conjecture that the David Lloyd who had son Evan also had son John who married Mallt, d. of Hugh ap Ievan. It is likely that these David's are a good 40 years apart in age. If they are one and the same person however, David probably married Damasen d.of Thomas Ireland, late in life and it is likely that there was a large discrepancy in their age, she being very young. (Conjectured from C-437, p. 575 & 579)
It is the father of Evan ap David LLoyd that the rest of this information applies. David's full name was David Lloyd ap Llewelyn. He was from Mathavarn and had an extensive estate on both sides of the Dyvi above Machynlleth. He was a voluminous poet, a Barrd, a Brudiwr (a Prophet) with numerous enigmatical predictions to his credit. He is said to have been the "Esq'r of the body of Henry VII."
Several of his writings are still in existence. When Richmond won Bosworth, the Welsh bards celebrated the victory in their addresses to Henry VII. David's poem of this follows: "King Harry hath fought, and bravely done, Our friend the golden crown hath won; The bards resume a cheerful strain; For the good of the world little R. was slain. That straddling letter, pale and sad, In England's realm no honour had; For ne'er could R. in place of Iowerth (Edward), Rule England's people loyally; Nor stem the foe with puissant hand, Nor on the breach like Edward stand. How odious the vile cur to spy, With withered shank for brawny thigh, Partake the banquet's circling cheer, Where Gloucester's cunning cheats the ear." (C-437, p. 579)

Found this fascinating tidbit about Mathavarn:

They live in caves, secret regions of the mountains & forests. Their homes are hidden from mortal vision. They are called knockers because they knock where there is ore. Their other name is “goat head” [gobhar + ceann]. They were created by the Fomorian giants in year 225 of the Second Age of the Sun. One of their strongholds is Beacon Mountain in Wales. In Germany they guard the salt mines which are the burial places of the dead. They are the servants of the goddess Nessa, The Loch Ness Monster. When seen above ground they dance the Morris dance in circles. The Bogle has the 29th of March as a celebration day in Scotland. The Dancing Place of the Goblin is at Ffridd y Ywen: The Forest of Yew at Mathavarn, Llanwrin, Wales. A magical yew-tree grows exactly in the middle of the forest.
