Etymology of the name JORWERTH.
Meaning of the baby name JORWERTH.

  

JORWERTH.  A variant form of Edward (q.v.), meaning "rich guard."  Usage:  Cornwall, Wales. (Prænomina, Charnock, 1882).

... King Magnus died the year after the fall of Robert of Bellême, in his last and greatest attack on Ireland.  It awakens some interest when we read that he had in his host a stranger who bore the great Norman name of Giffard.  Was he an accomplice, was he a messenger, of Earl Robert of Shropshire?  Towards the Welsh prince Jorwerth, who had done so much on both sides in the course of the rebellion, Henry was, according to the Welsh writers, far from keeping his word.  It is not wonderful that enmity arose between Jorwerth and his brothers after his conduct during the siege of Bridgenorth... (The Reign of William Rufus and the Accession of Henry the First, Freeman, v.2, 1882)
