Robert ap Maredudd is the presumed Head of the House of Aberffraw following the death of Owain Lawgoch the last and only known surviving great-nephew of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd in 1378. He is cited by Sir John Wynn, 1st Baronet as his ancestor and head of the family at that time. He is known to have married a Welsh noble woman called Angharad ferch Dafydd ap Llywelyn. His full name showing his pedigree is Robert ap Maredudd ap Hywell ap Dafydd ap Gruffudd ap Caradog ap Thomas ap Rhodri ab Owain Gwynedd. He had a brother, Ieuan ap Maredudd, from whom the Anwyl of Tywyn family claim descent. A rival claim for the headship of the Aberffraw royal house would come at this time from the Price of Esgairweddan family descended illegitimately from Dafydd II.
