LLANARMON (LLAN-ARMON), a parish in the hundred of EIVIONYDD, county of CARNARVON, NORTH WALES, 4 miles (N. E.) from Pwllheli, on the road to Carnarvon, containing 613 inhabitants. The village is pleasantly situated in a fertile plain, and the neighbour-hood partakes of the pleasing scenery which prevails in this part of the country. The living is a rectory not in charge, annexed to that of Llangybi, in the archdeaconry of Merioneth, and diocese of Bangor, and in the patronage of the Bishop of Bangor. The church, dedicated to St. Garmon, is an ancient and spacious structure in good repair : some additional windows have lately been inserted, previously to which alteration the interior was very dark. There is neither a parsonage-house nor glebe land attached to the living. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic Methodists. The Rev. Mr. Griffith, in 1729, bequeathed, in trust to the minister and churchwardens, lands producing £ 2. 10. per annum, for the benefit of the poor of the parish ; and Mrs. Jones left £20, of which the interest is given to poor widows. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to £ 220. 18. ( Topographical Dictionary of Wales, Samuel Lewis 1833)
