Born Reys ap Maddoc Seis (Reese son of Maddoc the English Speaker) in Llandovery village of South Eastern Dyfedd. The youngest son, he was sent to London via tonsured monk to be apprenticed to a Sutor (shoemaker) but was turned away when there was no room for another apprentice. The monk found him an apprentice placement with an aged Tailor instead. Maddoc Seis was only too happy to hind his youngest out of the way and safe from the predations of his eldes brothers, who in typical Welsh fashion killed each other off. (Tis why MvRY has no other family) At the death of her father a year after her mother she inherited his Tailor Shop and continues to make clothes for people who can pay.
