House was built by Tudor Trevor, Earl of Hereford; passed, in the 14th century, to the Mostyn family; has been so changed as to retain only one chamber of thooriginal structure: and is now the residence of J.

A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Pengwern has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of Denbighshire.
