From History of the Town of Wrexham, Its Houses, Streets, Fields, and Old Families by Alfred Neobard Palmer (Wrexham, 1893), p. 137:
"The Hafod y wern estate, lying between what I take to be the old Common Pasture of Wrexham and the lord's demesne of Glyn Park, suggests the probability of its having been carved out of one or the other, and granted by the lord of the commote to the first holder of it for services rendered. Indeed the very name of the house shows that it must have been built on land more or less waste, 'Hafod y wern' meaning 'Summer Shieling of the alder marsh,' and 'hafodau' or 'summer shielings' being merely temporary dwellings, erected for the convenience of those who tended the sheep and cattle at their summer pastures. However, this may have been Hafod y wern was in 1620, and long before, the principal free estate in the manor. The first holder of it who actually lived there, appears to have been Hwfa ap Iorwerth, youngest son of Iorwerth ap Ieuaf of Llwynonn."
Hwfa married Margaret verch Llewelyn ap Ynyr O'Ial.
