History

LLANBABO (LLAN-BABO), a parish, in the hundred of Tàlybolion, union and county of Anglesey, North Wales, 6 miles (N. W. by W.) from Llanerchymedd. The name is derived from the dedication of the church to its supposed original founder, Pabo, one of the ancient native princes of Wales, who, for his valour in defending his country from the aggressions of the Scots and Picts, was styled Pabo Post Prydain, or "the support of Britain," and after his canonization became one of the most venerated saints of the principality. The church, said to have been founded by Pabo in the year 460, is a small plain edifice, remarkable only as containing an ancient monument of that saint.[1]
