"(3) A cadet branch of the Pulestons of Hafod-y-wern flourished at Caernarvon for part of the 16th cent., its founder being the son by his first marriage (to Elin, daughter of Robert Whitney), of John Puleston ('Hen'), Sir JOHN PULESTON (d. 1551), who was sheriff of Caernarvonshire, 1543-4, Member of Parliament for Caernarvon, 1541-4, and for Caernarvonshire, 1545-7 and 1547-51, chamberlain of North Wales, 1547, and constable of Caernarvon castle, 1523-51. He m. (1) Gaynor, daughter of Robert ap Meredydd ap Hwlcyn Llwyd of Glynllifon , and (2) Sioned, daughter of Meredydd ap Ieuan ap Robert, of Cesail Gyfarch and Gwydir . From HUGH PULESTON, his son by his second wife, who m. Margaret, daughter and heiress of Hugh Lloyd, of Llwynycnotiau, near Wrexham, were descended the Pulestons of that place. There is evidence that the Rev. EDWARDPULESTON (d. 1621/2), second son of this Hugh, who became rector of Burton Latimer, Northants, in 1592, and ultimately inherited Llwynycnotiau from his childless elder brother, was a confidant of captain John Salisbury of Rg (see Salusbury of Rg ), one of the principal conspirators in the Essex revolt of 1601; while his younger brother, RICHARD PULESTON, had served under the captain in Ireland. On the death, without issue, March 1677/8, of Edward's grandson, JOHN PULESTON, Llwynycnotiau came into possession of his wife's brother, Simon Thelwall, of Plas-y-ward (see Thelwall of Plas-y-ward ), by virtue of a settlement made in 1672. "

Hugh married Margaret verch Hugh Lloyd of Llwyn y Cnotiau, daughter of Hugh Lloyd of Llwyn y Cnotiau, near Wrexham and Unknown.
