History[edit | edit source]
"A parish in the hundred of Isaled, county of Denbigh, 6 miles (W.) from Corwen, containing 1011 inhabitants. It is stated that the inhabitants of north Wales, revolting against the government of Meredydd, Prince of Powys, about the close of the tenth century, invited Eidwal, son of Meirig, to the throne, to dispossess whom Meredydd immediately called together his troops, and the rival princes met at Llangwm, where, after a sharp conflict, Meredydd was totally defeated and Tewdwr Mawr, his nephew, slain. This parish, which is of great extent, is situated in a dreary moorland district, near the extremity of the county, bordering on Merionethshire. ..... The church, dedicated to St. Hierom, is a small neat edifice. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
