Surely it will be the Parish Church?

So, that will be St James the Apostle

The parish of Bagillt was created out of Holywell in 1844.
The parish of Brynford was created out of Holywell in 1854.

This marriage is dated 1840 - so pre-dating the splits ;D

The format of the baptism you posted was that used by the Established Church.
These days called the Church in Wales, but Anglican none the less.

I am not surprised at confusion  for I cannot readilly think of another religious building which also shares its churchyard between Cathoics & Anglicans. This is a church that started as St. Winifred and became St. James in about 1769.
