Ysceifiog, or Ysgeifiog, is one of the ancient parishes of Flintshire. It originally comprised the eight townships of Batingen, Garneddwen, Gellilyfdy, Pen Ucha'r Plwy, Prys (or Prysau), Trefraith, Tre'r Llan Isaf and Tre'r Llan Uchaf.

On 27 June 1848, parts of the townships of Garneddwen, Tre'r Llan Uchaf and Pen Ucha'r Plwy went to the new parish of Rhesycae.

On 19 August 1853, part of the township of Gellilyfdy went to the new parish of Gorsedd.

In 1854, parts of the townships of Pen Ucha'r Plwy and Prys went to the new parish of Brynford.

By 1835, the old church was in such a state of dilapidation that services had to be discontinued. The building was demolished, and a new church was erected on the same site during 1836/1837.
