LLANDDONA (LLAN-DDONA), a parish in the hundred of TYNDAETHWY, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 3 1/2 miles (N. W.) from Beaumaris, containing 442 inhabitants. This parish derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Dona, who flourished about the commencement of the eighth century, and is situated in the eastern part of the Isle of Anglesey, upon a peninsular projection which separates the bay of Beaumaris from the Irish sea. It comprises but a moderate portion of enclosed arable and pasture land, which is in a good state of cultivation, and an extensive common, which, from the rocky nature of the soil, affords but indifferent pasturage for cattle. The surrounding scenery, though not distinguished by any peculiarity of features, is pleasing ; and the numerous farm-houses scattered over the parish give it an air of cheerfulness not generally found in this part of the principality. A considerable herring-fishery is carried on during the season at Red Wharf bay. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor, endowed with £ 1000 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Lord Boston. The church is a very ancient structure, supposed to have been erected about the year 610, and is situated very near the coast of Red Wharf bay. Several small charitable donations and bequests have been left by different benefactors to the poor. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £ 172. 17.
