HENEGLWYS (HEN-EGLWYS), a parish in the hundred of MALLTRAETH, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 3 miles (W.) from Llangevni, on the Holyhead road, containing 335 inhabitants. This parish, the name of which signifies the old church, is of considerably, extent, and is situated in a marshy district surrounded by rugged and rocky elevations. The scenery of the neighbourhood is wild and dreary : the lands are principally enclosed and under cultivation, but the soil is cold and unproductive. Its situation, about half-way between Bangor and Holyhead, on the new line of road, has rendered it a place of some traffIc ; and the Mona Inn, a spacious and commodious hotel and posting-house, has been erected here for the accommodation of travellers ; but the situation is bleak and exposed, and the immediate neighbourhood uninviting, consisting chiefly of swampy flats and rocky promontories. The living is a discharged rectory, with the perpetual curacy of Trevwalchmai annexed, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor, rated in the king's books at £9. 3. 4., and in the patronage of the Bishop of Bangor. The church, dedicated to St. Llwydian, is an ancient edifice, distinguished by no architectural feature claiming especial notice. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists. The Rev. Hugh Hughes bequeathed land for apprenticing a poor boy of this parish, and for other uses ; and William Bold, in 1688, gave land for the poor : there are also some smaller charitable donations, the produce of which is distributed among the poor. The average annual expenditure for the. support of the poor is £ 185. 16. ( A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)
