"LLANERCHYMEDD, VILL, a parochial chapelry and small market town in the hundred of Menai, in county Anglesey, North Wales, 13 miles N.W. of Beaumaris, and 15 N.E. of Holyhead. Bangor is its post town. The Gaerwen station on the Chester and Holyhead railway is about 8 miles from the village. It is situated within about 6 miles distance from the Irish Sea, and the main road from the Menai Bridge to Amlwch passes through the town, which consists of two main streets crossing each other at right angles. The principal trade is in the manufacture of snuff, for which it is somewhat famous, and in connection with the numerous cattle fairs. Rope making and hide curing afford some employment. Petty sessions are held monthly." [From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) - Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003]

  • Llanerchymedd Chapelry       Attached to the rectory of Llanbeulan       Attendance - (average) 80 + 25 scholars, afternoon 97 + 35 scholars   " Llanerchymedd village or Town contains a population of about two thousand. It consists of portions of five Parishes viz Amlwch, Coedana, Llechgynfarwydd, Rhodogeidio and Llanerchymedd itself. The Church which is a Chapelry attached to the Rectory of Llanbeulan (which is about 10 miles distant from here)  is private property and is in a wretched state. The Inhabitants do not attend it in great numbers owing both to the miserable condition of the Building and because the pews being private property they have nowhere to sit but the free benches. This is the only place of worship connected with the Church of England in the town for a population of 2000. The population of the town is made up from the different portions of the Parishes as nearly as can be in the following way ........"
