Ancient Parishes of Flintshire

The Ancient Parishes of Flintshire

The following are the ancient parishes in the historic county of Flintshire, which was abolished in 1974.

The historic county of Flintshire bears little resemblance to the modern county of Flintshire which was formed in 1996.

In the late 19th century and the early 20th century, as the population increased in many parishes, they were sub-divided into new parishes.
