Cymdeithas Hanes Mechell
The Society was founded in 2007 following the launch of The Rev. Emlyn Richards book
‘Bywyd Gwr Bonheddig’ about William Bulkely. William Bulkely was a native of Llanfechell
who kept diaries for the period 1734-
As well as work based on the diaries, local historians were inspired to research other aspects of the history of Llanfechell and it’s people, and the Society is going from strength to strength.
The Society meets on the second Thursday every other month, and an annual programme of topics is published which is available on the website.
When the Society was established, it was decided to set up the website as a record of the work which is presented at the meetings, and a considerable body of information is now available in Welsh and English.
Also, a book of the content of the website was published, and around one hundred copies of the Welsh and the English versions have been sold to date.
