LLANGAFO (LLAN - GAFFO), a parish in the hundred of MENAI, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 6 miles (N. W. by N.) from Carnarvon, containing 137 inhabitants. This parish derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Caffo, who flourished in this part of Wales about the middle of the sixth century. It comprehends an extensive tract of land, of which a large portion is marshy, some part hilly, and the remainder enclosed and in a fair state of cultivation. In 1790, an act of parliament was obtained for more effectually embanking the marshes called Maldraeth and Corsddeugae, under the provisions of which two hundred and thirty acres were allotted to the several proprietors of land in this parish. The soil is in general fertile, and the lower grounds afford excellent pasturage for cattle. The surrounding scenery, though pleasingly varied, is not distinguished by any peculiarity of feature, but the higher grounds afford some fine views over the adjacent country. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to the rectory of Llangeinwen, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor. The church is a small ancient edifice, situated on an eminence overlooking the Malldraeth marsh : it is appropriately fitted up for the performance of divine service, but is not distinguished by any architectural details of importance. There are places of worship for Independents and Wesleyan Methodists. Several small charitable donations and bequests have been made at various times, of which the greater part has been lost ; the interest of the remainder is annually distributed among the poor. Two gold coins of the Emperor Constantine, in a good state of preservation, were found near the church, in the year 1829, and several silver and copper coins of that and other emperors have been found in the parish.
