Wogan 1: Wogan of Picton, Wogan of Stonehall, Wogan of Wiston
Bleddyn ap Maenrych, lord of Brecknock
m Elin dau of Tewdr Mawr, sister of Prince Rhys
1. Gwgan 'lord of Brecknock'
WBO reports that "The progenitor of the many branches of the Wogan family at Boulston, Wilston, Picton, Llanstinan, Stonehall, and elsewhere in Pembrokeshire, as well as in Ireland and England is supposed to have been Gwgan ap Bleddyn, lord of Brecknock". "Wogan" is an anglicisation of Gwgan.
m Cecila dau/coheir of Sir Philip Gwiss or Gwys of Wiston
A. Sir Mathew Wogan
m Alice dau/coheir of Meirchion ap Rhys ap Rhydderch
i. Sir Walter Wogan
m Margaret Stanton dau/heir of Sir Adam Stanton of Stanton
a. Sir Mathew Wogan
Presumably because he married a Picton and Sir John lived about this time and is known to have been of the Picton branch, this Sir Mathew is identified in some web sites as Sir John the Justiciar of Ireland. For the reason noted below, we show that Sir John differently.
m Alice Picton dau of William Picton
1 Sir Mathew Wogan
m Avice Malefant dau of Sir Walet Malefant
A Sir John Wogan of Wiston d 1419
m Annes Werriot dau of Philip Merriot

m David Perrot of Scotsborough
B. Trahaiarnprobably of this generation
i. Ifan
a. Howel
1 Gwenllian
m Griffith Gruffydd of Henglawdd, later of Tregarnedd
The following connection is wholly speculative. Of Sir John the Justiciar, WBO reports that "There is complete uncertainty about his parentage and early life. We first hear of him in 1281", then being in Wales. WBO reports that he was a member of the Picton branch but adds "The exact relationship between the Picton and Wiston branches of the family has never been determined." The dates do not give much leeway on the generations given that the family name of Wogan was itself new.
C. ?? Wogan
i. Sir John Wogan of Picton, Justiciar of Yorkshire later of Ireland a 1281, d 1321ancestor of Wogans of Rathcoffey
WBO notes some uncertainty as to whether or not the Sir John Wogan who was Justiciar of Ireland from 1308-1313 was the same person as rather than son of the Sir John Wogan who was Justiciar in 1295. Provisionally, we follow those web sites which accept that he was the same person but, noting that WBO reports that his wife Margaret died in 1302 but that his son Thomas was born c1311, we presume that either there was indeed an intervening generation or Sir John married twice, probably with no surviving male issue by Margaret.
m1. Margaret d 1302, dau/coheir of Robert de Valle or Dale of Walwyn's Castle
m2. ??
a. Sir Thomas Wogan b c1311, d 1357, escheator of Ireland

WBO describes John as "the last of the male line of the Picton branch."

1. John Wogan of Wiston d Banbury 26.07.1469
m Mawd Matilda Clement dau/heir of Jenkin Clement of Geneu'r-glyn
WBO suggests that the following Sir John was grandson rather than son of John. Provisionally, we follow Griffith in showing Sir John as John's son.
