Plant Rhys Ddwfn - The Children of Rhys Ddwfn

'Mae chwedl yn Nyfed, fod rhyw gymmydogaeth anwledig,
neu yn hytrach, wedi bod rhwng Cemmaes ac Aberdaron.
Pen cenedl y preswylwyr oedd Rhys Ddwfn; a gwledig ei
hiliogaeth yn Blant Rhys Ddwfn'
Gwynionydd; Y Brython, Awst 20 1858

'There is a tale current in Dyfed, that there is, or rather that
there has been, a country between Cemmaes, the northern
Hundred of Pembrokeshire, and Aberdaron in Lleyn.
The chief patriarch of the inhabitants was Rhys Ddwfn,
and his descendants used to be called after him the
Children of Rhys Ddwfn.'
from Sir John Rhys 'Celtic folklore, Welsh & Manx' 1901.

" Individual possession is the great entering wedge, which has split society into eight hundred million fragments. It virtually, practically and theoretically denies the brotherhood of man." (Hiram Stafford, 1844)
