Caernarfonshire County Including Gwynedd County

(Welsh: Sir Gaernarfon) (also spelled Caernarvonshire or Carnarvonshire) one of the thirteen historic counties. It was originally created under the terms of the Statute of Rhuddlan in 1284 following King Edward I of England's conquest of the Principality of Wales.

The county is bounded to the north by the Irish Sea, to the east by Denbighshire, to the south by Cardigan Bay and Merionethshire, and to the west by Caernarfon Bay and the Menai Strait, separating it from Anglesey.

I have added a link to the Home Front Museum in Llandudno. I have seen some interesting posts on their Facebook page.

Sometimes those buried in the local graveyards may have been involved in a shipwreck and not been a local.
