Lygan Y Llan  Flintshire


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

LUGYN-Y-LLAN and LUGYN-Y-WERN, two townships in Halkin parish, Flintshire; 2 miles SW of Flint. Real property of L. y-L., £2,763; of which £1,831 are in mines. Real property of L. y-W., £1,461; of which £26 are in mines, and £10 in quarries. Pop., 689 and 576.

The location is the village of Halkin, as the Ordnance Survey 1:10,560 map of Flintshire of 1878, accessible via the web site, shows the name "LYGAN Y LLAN" with the "Y" very close to the village's church. Additional information about this locality is available for Halkyn
