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".
