Commoners reports that "The family of Morrice is of great antiquity, and can be traced in lineal descent from Athelstan Glodrydd, prince of Ferlex, betwixt Wye and Severn, who sprung from the old princes of Powys, and who, through his mother, Rheingar, daughter and heir of Grono ap Tudor Trevor, was eighth in a direct line from Caradoc Vriechfras, lord of Hereford, one of the knights of King Arthur's Round Table." [Wales06 shows Athelstan as sixth generation from Caradog Freichfras]. Commoners adds that "Athelstan Glodrydd was godson of Athelstan, king of England, and founded the fourth royal tribe of Wales." Athelstan reigned 924-940.
