History

ABERFRAW (ABER-FRAW), a parish, and formerly a market-town, in the union of Anglesey, hundred of Malltraeth, county of Anglesey, North Wales, 9 miles (S. W.) from Llangevni. This place, which derives its name from its situation at the mouth of the small river Fraw, was distinguished at a very early period as the principal residence of the ancient princes of North Wales. The church, dedicated to St. Beuno, is an ancient structure, 20 yards in length and 12 in breadth, containing 800 sittings. In the tything of Tyndryval anciently stood a chapel designated Capel Mair, or "St. Mary's chapel." There are places of worship for Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists. A ruined chapel, called Eglwys y Beili, was rebuilt for a school, in 1729.[1]
