LLANVIHANGEL TRE 'R BEIRDD (LLAN-VIHANGEL TRE-Y-BEIRDD), a parish in the hundred of TWRCELYN, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 4 miles (E. by S.) from Llanerchymedd, containing 360 inhabitants. This parish, which derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Michael, and its distinguishing adjunct from its having anciently been one of the seats of the British bards or Druids, is pleasantly situated in a fertile district nearly in the centre of the island. The surface is varied with some bold eminences ; the lands are for the most part enclosed and in cultivation ; and the soil, especially in the lower grounds, is fertile and productive. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to the rectory of Llandyvrydog, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor. The church is a small plain edifice, and contains some good monuments to the family of Lewis. There are places of worship for Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists. The poor children of this parish are admissible for gratuitous instruction into the school of Llandyvrydog ; and the produce of several small charitable donations and bequests is annually distributed among the poor at Christmas. Sir William Jones was a native of this parish ; and Lewis Morris, an eminent antiquary and poet, resided here for some time. Of the occupation of this place by the ancient Druids several vestiges are still visible, among which may be noticed the remains of a Druidical altar upon one of the hills in the parish, and a large pillar, or upright stone, near the church, called Maen Addwyn, or "the blessed stone," supposed to be one of those Meini Gwyr pillars noticed by Mr. Rowlands. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to £ 155. 13. (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)
