[From A Memoir of Hawarden Parish, Richard Willett, 1822]
Parhaodd yr Eglwys Sant Matthew i fod yn eglwys ardal ym mhlwyf Penarlâg tan 12 Rhagfyr, 1874, pan sefydlodd y plwyf Bwcle yn ei rinwedd ei hun. Roedd y plwyf newydd yn cynnwys trefgordd Coed Ewlo a rhannau o drefgorddau Tref Ewlo a Phentrehobyn.
Ailadeiladwyd yr eglwys yn helaeth yn ystod y blynyddoedd cynnar yr 20fed ganrif, ac cafodd ei ail-gysegru ar 11 Ionawr 1905.
St. Matthew's church remained as a district church within the parish of Hawarden until 12 December 1874, when the parish of Buckley was established in its own right. The new parish comprised the township of Ewloe Wood and parts of the townships of Ewloe Town and Pentrobin.
The church was extensively rebuilt during the early years of the 20th century, and was re-consecrated on 11 January 1905.
