Died after 516. Saint Hywyn was probably a companion of Saint Cadfan on his return journey from Brittany in 516 to Cornwall and Wales. He is said to have been the founder of Aberdaron in Carnarvonshire. Several churches in western England known as Saint Owen’s or Saint Ewen’s possibly have Hywyn for their titular saint (Benedictines).
