          LLANDEGWINING (LLAN-DEGONWY), a parish, partly in the hundred of GAFLOGION, but chiefly in that of COMMITMAEN, Lleyn division of the county of CARNARVON, NORTH WALES, 9 miles (W. S. W.) from Pwllheli, containing 148 inhabitants. This parish, which is of very small extent, is pleasantly situated on the shore of Cardigan bay : the lands, which are principally enclosed, are fertile, and in a state of good cultivation. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to the rectory of Llaniestyn, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Bangor. The church, dedicated to St. Tegonwy, is a small edifice, and is kept in excellent repair. The sum of £2. 10. per annum, arising from money secured on the Carnarvon turnpike trust, given by an unknown benefactor, is annually divided among the poor at Christmas ; and there are also some other trifling charitable donations and bequests. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £ 94. 11.
