Llangadwaladr  Anglesey


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Llangadwaladr like this:

LLANGADWALADR, or EGLWYSAEL, a parish, with a village, in the district and county of Anglesey; ¾ of a mile SW of Bodorgan r. station, and 2½ ENE of Aberffraw. Post town, Aberffraw, under Bangor. Acres, 4,718; of which 1,230 are water. Real property, £2,017. Pop., 526. Houses, 119. ...

The property is much subdivided. Bodowen was formerly a seat of the Owens. Bodorgan is the seat of F. O. Meyrick, Esq.; and was, at one time, famous for remarkably fine gardens. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Bangor. Value, £245.* Patron, the Lord Chancellor. The church is dedicated to St. Cadwaladr; occupies the site of one built about 650; is itself early perpendicular English; comprises nave and chancel, with N and S chapels; has a very beautiful three-light, stained-glass window; has also, in the N chapel, a good memorial window to the Meyricks; and includes, on the lintel of the naVe's S doorway, an inscribed stone of the 7th century to St. Cadwaladr's grandfather, who is styled "Catamanus Rex sapientissimus opinatissimus omninm regum." There are a village school, and charities £16.
