      Stewart Baldwin: "[He] was apparently old at the time Gildas was writing (perhaps between 500 and 550) [...] As the recipient of a severe denunciation by his contemporary Gildas, and the subject of a memorial stone, he is the best documented individual in the earlier generations of this ancestor table. His uncertain chronological position depends on the still debated chronology of his contemporary Gildas."
