The place-name Trythall contains this word,  This is pronounced with  
Try- pronounced to rhyme with English 'try" - with the th a definite  
dh. (TRY-dhul).  The name was Trewreythel 1289.  I  judge that this is  
tre, 'farm" + gwreydh + adj. suffix -el, and might mean something on  
the lines of "farm where root(crops) grow".
