I think you mean Llanywern which is just west of Llanfihangel Tal-y-Llyn. You can find it on the 6 inch map at https://www.sabre-roads.org.uk/maps/index.php?view=51.94879,-3.31087&map=NLSMap&zoom=16&layer=6

I can't find the last location in your list which I assume is a farm. Three farms are named in Llanywern as you can see on the map.
Crabb from Laurencekirk / Fordoun and Scurry from mid Essex

A Google search for "llwynrhida" comes up with a photo of a farm by this name which seems from the map which comes with it to be in the right sort of place.

Might be this place - slightly different spelling but would be pronounced the same
