|The Parish Church of St John the Evangelist
The new parish of Rhydymwyn was created by an Order in Council, dated 31 March 1865.
It comprised parts of the townships of Gwysaney and Gwernaffield, formerly in the parish of Mold;
parts of the townships of Cefn and Glust (or Llysdianhunedd),
and the whole of the township of Dolfechlas, formerly in the parish of Cilcain;
and part of the township of Caerfallwch, formerly in the parish of Northop.
Archdeacon Thomas (1911) stated that it also included part of the township of Lygan y Llan, formerly in the parish of Halkyn,
but from a study of the township boundaries, that seems to be unlikely.
Archdeacon Thomas (1911) gave the area of the parish as 2274 acres.
The new parish was assigned to the No. 4 ("Mold") sub-district of the Holywell Registration District,
which was co-extensive with the Holywell poor law Union.
The foundation stone of the new parish church, dedicated to St. John the Evangelist, was laid on 1 August 1861,
and the church was consecrated on 17 September 1864.
• In 1831 it is recorded that Rhydymwyn was not a separate parish.
• In 1901 the population of the parish was noted as 584.
