I would have suggested you consulted GENUKI, but on checking cannot find a mention.
Trefangor deserves more than a Map Reference.
Trefangor as it is normally spelt is still in use, and is probably one of the oldest
non-conformist burial in Wales if not the UK.
The early Pembrokeshire Baptists met at Rushacre in the Narberth Area, prior to Rhydwilym
Chapel being founded in 1701 following the Act of Tolerance in 1689.
Rhydwilym is the oldest Baptist Chapel in the World.
One of the two first joint ministers was Gruffydd Howel, who probably lived at Trefangor,
as he donated the land for the Cemetery.
The first burial was apparently his son John Gruffydd Howel, and Gruffydd Howel was buried
there in 1705.
It probably therefore I believe predates the Burial Ground at Rhydwilym, and had
established in the late 1600's.
Off Topic slightly, but what many current researchers do not realise, is that the Early
Nonconformists - Baptists, Independents or Quakers, all came from the higher echelons of
the local Society.
They were educated, and were not simply of independent mind, but had the financial
wherewithal to be independent, and follow their conscience.

Hello. I'm the Resource Manager for the Dyfed Family History Society database (
). I'm trying to fill some gaps and wonder if any
one can locate ( map reference would be great) the Trevangor Chapel or Cemetery in the
Llanddewi Velfrey (PEM) area. I believe it is close to the A40. MAny thanks, Sheila.
