Biographical/Historical note

Prior to 1894, monthly parish vestry meetings dealt with ecclesiastical matters, rates, and local issues. Parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974. The parishes of Bryngwyn and Llanarth were in the county of Monmouthshire. The civil parish of Bryngwyn was abolished in 1935 to create the parish of Llantilio Crossenny.
