From Welsh Biography Online (http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s1-GRIF-PEN-1300.html) :
"In 1389, Gwilym and his younger brother, ROBIN AP GRIFFITH, were granted by their father his lands in Caernarvonshire and Anglesey and it was probably this step which led to their firm establishment in the area. Lands in Bodfeio were given to Robin, who was the ancestor of the family of Williams of Cochwillan (q.v. in App.) . "

This source says Robin was the first son (probably incorrect):

From The History of the Princes, the Lords Marcher, and the Ancient Nobility of Powys Fadog, and the Ancient Lords of Arwystli, Cedewen, and Meirionydd, Vol. IV, p. 342:
"Robert ab Gruffydd of Cwchwillan, ancestor of Sir Richard Bulkeley Williams Bulkeley of Baron Hill, Bart.," the first son of "Gruffydd ab Gwilym, Lord of Penrhyn and Cwchwillan"


Robin married Lowry verch Gronw ap Jevan of Eifionydd.
