A bit strange to introduce step- and grand-relatives before straight 'daughter', 'son' etc., no?!

Is -ferch a mutated form of merch?

Indeed it is.

See, for example, its entry in GPC.

Many thanks - didn't know that website!

It can be quite useful, especially if you're curious about the etymology of a word!

The definitions are in Welsh, but have summaries in English so it can also be useful to see what something means, though for that I use it in combination with a couple of other online Welsh-English dictionaries.
