Llanddewi Parish Records

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

The records of individual ecclesiastical parishes include registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, as well as records of the churchwardens and Parochial Church Councils, parish charities, schools, clubs and societies.

Parish records were deposited at the Clwyd Record Office, following an agreement of 1976 between the Church in Wales and the Welsh County Councils.

The parish of Llanddewi was created on 5 February 1867, from the southern part of the parish of Llangernyw. It comprised the townships of Bodrach, Nannerth, Pantymanus, and portions of Pentrewern, Rhanhir and Hafodunos. The parish reverted to Llangernyw in 1974.
