Annwn_ Or Annwfn

is defined in Canon Silvan Evans's Dictionary as an

abyss, Hades, etc. Plant Annwn, therefore, means children of the lower

regions. It is a name derived from the supposed place of abode--the

bowels of the earth--of the Fairies. Gwragedd Annwn, dames of Elfin

land, is a term applied to Fairy ladies.

Ellis Wynne, the author of Bardd Cwsg, was born in 1671, and the

probability is that the words Plant Annwfn formed in his days part of

the vocabulary of the people. He was born in Merionethshire.
