"LLANMIHANGEL (LLAN-VIHANGEL Y BONT-VAEN), a parish in the hundred of COWBRIDGE, county of GLAMORGAN, SOUTH WALES, 2 1/2 miles (S. by W.) from Cowbridge, on the road to Lantwit-Major, containing 53 inhabitants. Llanmihangel Place, for many generations the seat of the family of Thomas, was sold to Sir Humphrey Edwin, lord mayor of London, some time in the seventeenth century : it was subsequently the residence for sixty years of the late John Franklin, Esq., one of the Welsh judges, and is now the property of Earl Dunraven. In the grounds belonging to it is the finest collection of evergreens to be met with in this part of the principality ; and the yew trees, hollies, and cypresses, which are remarkable for the luxuriance of their growth, are perhaps unrivalled by any in the country. The living is a rectory not in charge, with that of Flemingston consolidated, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Llandaf, and in the patronage of the Earl of Dunraven. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, is a small edifice, not characterized by any remarkable architectural features. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £34. 11."
