Llandegla (Llan-Degla) - From 'A Topographical Dictionary of Wales' (1849)
LLANDEGLA (LLAN-DEGLA), a parish, in the union of Ruthin, hundred of Yale, county of Denbigh, North Wales, 6 miles (S. E.) from Ruthin; containing 417 inhabitants. This parish takes its name from the dedication of its church to St. Tecla, under whose supposed auspices the waters of an adjoining spring were anciently in high repute for the miraculous cure of the falling sickness. The patient afflicted with this disease, which was called "Clwyv Tecla," after washing in the well, making an offering of fourpence, and performing certain ceremonies, which, to inspire the greater awe, were never commenced till after sunset, passed the night in the chancel of the church, and at daybreak, on renewing his offering, went away under the belief of being healed. The village is pleasantly situated on the river Alyn. Fairs, chiefly for the sale of black cattle, are held annually on March 10th, May 6th, June 23rd, August 4th, and October 26th. The living is a discharged rectory, rated in the king's books at �8. 12. 3�., and endowed with �200 royal bounty; present net income, �95; patron, the Bishop of St. Asaph: the church is a small rude edifice, presenting no remarkable feature. There are places of worship for Independents, Wesleyans, and Calvinistic Methodists. A school in connexion with the Church is partly supported by a portion of the endowment noticed under the head of Llanarmon, given in 1746 by Mrs. Margaret Vaughan, of Bodidris, and Mr. Robert Jones, of Field-lane, London. Several Sunday schools are also held, belonging to the dissenters. The benefactions made to the poor have been few and of small amount, and appear to have been all lost. A tablet in the church shows a gift by Mrs. Alice Lloyd of �6; one by Mr. Eubule Thelwall of �5; and a donation of �10 from a person unknown: these sums were out at interest in private hands for many years; but in the end, the parties became paupers, or died leaving no assets, and the sums were consequently lost.
