BODEWRYD (BOD-EWRYD), a parish in the hundred of TWRCELYN, county of ANGLESEY, NORTH WALES, 3 miles (W. S.W.) from Amlwch, containing 35 inhabitants. This small parish was formerly comprehended in that of Llaneilian, from which it was detached, and formed into a parish of itself, within the last thirty years. It consists only of two farm-houses, one of them anciently the mansion of the Wynne family, with their respective farms, and has no parochial officers, either ecclesiastical or civil : in levying the county rate it is, with the parish of Gwredog, considered as a fourth division to the three contained in the parish of Amlwch. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Anglesey, and diocese of Bangor, endowed, in 1722, with one hundred and twenty-one acres of land, and a rent-charge of £2, by Dr.Wynne, Chancellor of Hereford, and subsequently with £ 800 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Sir John Thomas Stanley, Bart. The church, dedicated to St. Mary, is a small ancient edifice, containing some monuments to the Wynnes, proprietors of the parish, and a brass recording the munificence of Dr. Wynne, above noticed, who lies entombed in the church. A parochial school has been founded, and is supported at the expense of Lady Stanley, for the education of female children of this and the adjoining parishes.( A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis, 1833)
