    Default A town in Denbighshire beginning with HEN

    I have an ancestor who was bn about 1784 at a town in Denbighshire.The enumerator has only written Hen.Would that be Henllan or can anybody suggest another village in Denbighshire beginning with "Hen"?.
    Many thanks.

    I don't know if Hen is short for Henllan , but it does seem likely. Hen in Welsh also means 'Old ' ..... my village is Hen Golwyn or Old Colwyn . There is a village called Henllan which is a few miles outside of the town of Denbigh , you'll find it easily on google maps .
    Colwyn.
