The town of Nefyn
The town of Nefyn
Nefyn (until recently spelt "Nevin", it being named after the Irish goddess Nevin) was awarded a borough status by the Black Prince in 1355. The town which was protected by motte and bailey castle (of which little or nothing survives)was awarded to Nigel de Lohareyn. Nigel, a gentleman of the royal bedchamber, was granted the right to pocket all the taxes raised within the borough, as well as those of Pwllheli. Between 1832 and 1950 Nevin was one of the 6 boroughs forming the Caernarvon Boroughs constituency. David Lloyd George was its MP for 55 years.
