I would edit this a bit diffrent:

148 RB-DF-07 <GA Now Rochallor had stayed beside the king until the end, but the wolves of Angband assailed him, and he escaped from them because of his great swiftness, and ran at last to Hithlum, and broke his heart and died. Then in great sorrow Fingon took the lordship of the house of Fingolfin and the kingdom of the Noldor[ in Hithlum]> {There was lamentation in Hithlum when the fall of Fingolfin became known; but Fingon took the kingship of the Noldor}, and he maintained still his realm behind the Shadowy Mountains in the North. RB-DF-07.1<Shibboleth The Noldor then became divided into separate kingships under Fingon son of Fingolfin, Turgon his younger brother, Maedros son of Fanor, and Finrod son of {Arfin}[Finarfin]; and the following of Finrod had become the greatest.<editorial addition based on Shibboleth At this time Finrod added the prefix fin- to the name of his father Arfin following the example of Fingolfin.
>> But beyond Hithlum Morgoth pursued his foes relentlessly, ...
I know that this more risky, but I think we need to explain this prefix.
