The new parish of Llanfynydd was created on the 7th February 1845, out of the townships of Uwchmynydd Ucha, Uwchmynydd Isa, and part of Cymau, which had all been in the parish of Hope until that time.

In 1880, part of the township of Uwchmynydd Ucha was transferred to the new parish of Bwlchgwyn (Denbighshire).

Church History

Ordnance Survey reference SJ 279567.
Christ Church was consecrated in October 1843. It was badly damaged by fire on 4 December 1892.
"Willing hands were soon at work carrying water from an adjacent stream; but this primitive method of extinguishing the flames was a slow and tedious one .... The vestry is totally destroyed, and all its valuable contents .... and, worst of all, the registers of marriages and deaths, and their duplicates"
[From The Chester Chronicle, 10 December 1892]
The Clwyd FHS website has a photograph of the church.
