Mystyrrhoes Llowdy  Radnorshire


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

MYSTYRRHOES-LLOWDY, a township in Llandewy-Ystradenny parish, Radnorshire; 8½ miles N W of New Radnor. Real property, £2,056. Pop., 337.

The location is based on the description given by Samuel Lewis's A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (1833): "MEISTYRRHOSE LOWRY ... 1 mile (N. E.) from Penybont ... It occupies the lower part of the parish, where the Cymmaron stream falls into the river Ithon, which is here crossed by a bridge. The name denotes the fenny nature of the ground, a large common, much reduced by cultivation, having formerly existed here near the junction of those rivers." (, accessed 9/3/2011). The name has not been found on a topographic map.
