What about these two villages in Montgomryshire:-

Llangdenny and Langovan/Llangoven

As your link showed you accidentally went to Monmouthshire. 

This page

also lists Llangadfan.  If spelled with 'v' it looks pretty close.
Rutter, Sampson, Swinerd, Head, Redman in Kent.  Others in Cheshire, Manchester, Glos/War/Worcs.
RUTTER family and Matilda Sampson's Will:

That's two votes for Llangadfan then. See my reply #7 above.

I'm thinking Llangadfan too but I want a consensus.

Llangadfan's the most likely but I'm not totally convinced.  Could you give details of the person, please - or census refs.
