History

LLANVIHANGEL-TRE'R-BEIRDD (LLAN-FIHANGEL-TREF-Y-BEIRDD), a parish, in the hundred of Twrcelyn, union and county of Anglesey, North Wales, 4 miles (E. by S.) from Llanerchymedd. This parish derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Michael, and its distinguishing adjunct from its having anciently been one of the seats of the British bards or Druids. The church is a small plain edifice, and contains some good monuments to the family of Lewis. There are places of worship for dissenters.[1]

LLANFIHANGEL-TRE'R-BEIRDD, a parochial chapelry in the hundred of Twrcelyn, county Anglesey, 2 miles E. of Llanerchymedd, its post town, 5 N. of Llangefni, and 11 from Beaumaris. This place was formerly a favourite retreat of the Welsh bards, and hence it received its distinctive appellation. The village, which is small, lies about 5 miles distant from Moelfre Bay.
