Hi Jane,

Gwsaney Hall is just under 2 miles from both Mold and Northop, so I think they would be equally the nearest churches. I don't think there was one then at Sychdyn which is nearer - if so it would be an undistinguished one compared to Mold or Northop.

Sychdyn did have a mine though - it was called the Laurel Colliery (near what is now the Laurels). Quite a bucolic name for a pit, but there was also the Elm Colliery at Alltami nearby.

At least three pits in Mold including Maes-y-dre on the northern edge.

Hi Chris
Thanks.. thatís really useful.. and interestingly.. itís great that people here know the local geography. Itís never the same looking at a map... though in fact I hadnít done that for Gwysaney because I couldnít identify it. Itís making the Northop marriage look much more likely.
Thanks again
Jane

No worries, Jane.

I doubt if many people will have heard of Laurel Colliery. Flintshire CC have a record of it being sold in 1928, so gone a long time - but you can't look at that record online. I only remember it because I  had a holiday job as a bus conductor in the 70s, and it was the name of a fare stage in the books - but I can't remember anyone getting on or off there!

Anyway the Wikipedia article on Sychdyn implies it never had a church, only chapels. So Northop and Mold are the only possibilities. They are imposing churches and part of a set, the Beaufort churches endowed by Margaret Beaufort, Henry VII's formidable mother.

Ďthe Beaufort churches endowed by Margaret Beaufort, Henry VII's formidable motherí... Margaret Beaufort is one of the most remarkable women in history.. I never thought of her in connection with the area..

(Tried adding that in quotes but had to copy and paste.. tapping quotes includes the whole message)
