Before 1974 the village was in the historic county of Caernarfonshire. In 1974 it became part of the County of Gwynedd.


In 1870: ABER, a village and a parish in Bangor district, Carnarvon. The village stands on the coast, at the mouth of the Gwyngregyn rivulet, 4¾ miles E of Bangor. It has a post office under Bangor, a station on the Chester and Holyhead railway, and a comfortable inn. It is a charming place, and is much frequented by tourists. The views all round, and in the neighborhood, over sea and land, are rich and varied; and some of them are panora mic and extensive. The Lavan sands extend in front, dry for 4 miles at low water; and may be crossed on foot, with a guide, to the ferry of Beaumaris. ...
