subject of feudal tenure, but occupied by Welshmen, as a
patria Wallensium," directly under the chief Lord, somewhat
like Kibbor, with which it is often connected by name in the
old inquisitions.
When the Lordship of Glamorgan came into the hands of
the King in the time of Richard III., this district, no doubt,
came with it, and I think it likely that from being administered
with the adjoining portion of the Lordship of Ogmore (Llan-
geinor) it became in time considered as part of it. This is an
explanation which occurs to me. Others may be able to throw
more light on the matter. Llandyfodwg certainly was not part
of the old Lordship of Ogmore though probably part of the
territory intended to be included under that name in the Statute
of Henry VIII., and for that reason I have shown it as part of
the Lordship on the map.
LLANDAFF was, of course, the Lordship of the Bishop of that
See, and the Splott (sometimes described as a manor) was part
of it, as were some minor properties in other parts of the
County.
The Manor of Llandaff was sold by Bishop Anthony
Kitchin to George Mathew in 1553, and continued in the
Mathew family until 1818, when it was purchased by Sir
Samuel Romilly. His successors sold it to Mr. William
Sheward Cartwright in 1853, whose grandson is, I believe, the
present Lord.
