Harper John Parry, in a letter to the editors of the Cambrian Quarterly Magazine and Celtic Repertory, vol. 2 (London, 1830, p. 292), wrote: "Triban Morganwg" is so called from its being retained by the bards in Glamorganshire, after it, and several other ancient metres, had been discarded at an Eisteddvodd held at Carmarthen in 1451."
