NEWBOROUGH ST. PETER, (anciently Llananno), a parish and decayed market town in the hundred of Menai, county Anglesey, 12 miles from Bangor, and 5 from Carnarvon. It is situated near the coast, and is named by the Welsh Rhos-hyr, from its site on the Moeldraeth Sands, near a long dorsal ridge, covered with heath and rare maritime plants, interesting to the botanist. This place, which is now only a poor, decayed village, was formerly a market town, and had a llys, or royal palace, of the princes of North Wales. For more information see Newborough, Anglesey at
