HÊNEGLWYS (HÊN-EGLWYS), a parish, in the hundred of Malltraeth, union and county of Anglesey, North Wales, 2 miles (W.) from Llangevni, and on the Holyhead road. The name of this parish signifies "the old church." The church, dedicated to St. Llwydian, was entirely demolished and rebuilt in the year 1845, being in so ruinous a condition as to be no longer safe for the performance of divine service. It was an edifice of the end of the fourteenth century, and perhaps occupied the site of a still older building. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists.
