LLANVIGAEL (LLAN-VIGEL), a parish in the hundred of TAL Y BOLION, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 2 1/2 miles (N. N. W.) from Bodedern, containing 146 inhabitants. This small parish is situated on one of the finest rivulets in the isle, called Avon Alaw, which adds greatly to its fertility : the lands are enclosed and in a good state of cultivation. The scenery is finely varied, and the views from the higher grounds are interesting and extensive, and in some parts highly picturesque. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to the rectory of Llanvachreth, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor. The church was situated on the margin of the rivulet which flows through the parish : at present but a small portion of its ruins are remaining. The parishioners attend divine service in the church of Llanvachreth ; but distinct officers are still chosen, and the public business of the parish is transacted, in the same manner as prior to the decay of the church. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £ 63. 1. (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)
