Duffryn  Brecknockshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Duffryn like this:

DUFFRYN, a parcel in Llangunider parish, Brecon; at the head of the river Romney, 7½ miles W by S of Crickhowel. Real property, £5, 198; of which £1, 356 are in quarries, and £122 in mines. Pop., 123.

The name "Duffryn" or "Dyffryn" has not been found on a topographic map, so the location is simply the southern-most point on the river Rhymney ("Romney") that was within Brecknockshire. Additional information about this locality is available for Llangynidr
