LLANVAIR YN EUBWLL (LLAN-VAIR-YN-NEUBWLL), a parish in the hundred of LLYVON, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 5 miles (S. E.) from Holyhead, containing 319 inhabitants. This parish, which derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Mary, and its adjunct from two small lakes or pools contiguous, is pleasantly situated on the great Holyhead road, and comprises only an inconsiderable extent of fertile land, which is enclosed and in a good state of cultivation. The western part of it is bounded by the narrow strait which separates it from Holy Island, and over which is the bridge called Rhyd Pont, connecting it with the opposite shore. The surrounding country is richly diversified, and in some parts highly picturesque; and the views, extending over the town and bay of Holyhead on the north-west, and the adjacent country on the north and east, embrace much interesting scenery. The living is a perpetual curacy, annexed to the rectory of Rhoscolyn, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor. The church, a small irregular edifice, contains some excellent architectural details, which appear to have originally belonged to some more ancient building, the remains of which have been probably incorporated with the present structure : it stands on the western brow of an eminence overlooking a small creek of the Irish sea. There are places of worship for Independents and Wesleyan Methodists. The interest arising from some small charitable donations and bequests is distributed among the poor. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £ 116. 11. ( A Topgraphical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)
