- "The word Bettws, most probably, is a corruption of 'Beatus', as there is no such Welsh word, and such title was frequently given to churches, and is still retained by many in this county. It is in the same manor as Llangyby, which is the property of Captain Powell, of Nanteos."
- "The last two incumbents of the parish church were the Rev -. Davies and the Rev. Evan Griffiths."
- Derry Ormond is mentioned as the seat of John Johnes Esq.
