Summary Description

Llanfaes was the chief town and principal port for the Isle of Anglesey until the coming of the Edwardian conquest of Wales. Edward moved the burgesses of Llanfaes(there being c160 burgess plots) in 1296 when Beaumaris received its charter, from their town to the new town he had arranged to be located at Newborough on the south west corner of the island. Beaumaris took over the town’s fairs, markets and ferry across the Menai Straits. Reference Buildings of Wales –Gwynedd 2009 The Encyclopaedia of Wales Cadw Listing Notice.
