|St Mary's Church at Talyllyn dates from around the 13th century
although the present structure is thought to have been erected around 1590.
The Dolgellau Record Office ( my thanks to all the staff for all their help during my research ) contains most of the documents relating to the St Mary's Church.
Although the records of the Church at Talyllyn go back to the 1500's the quality of the early registers held at Dolgellau make reading them difficult and I have found that the Mormon microfilm of the Bishop Transcripts are easier to read although the early records are in Latin.

|The area around the Church is thought to have had at least one
dwelling " Tanyriwen " and it was in this dwelling that Jenny Jones lived out
her final days with
In the 1881 Census, Mary gave her age as 66 and a widower, we know from previous census's that Jennie was 84.
|The view from St Mary's to the Talyllyn is something special, the Churchyard is higher in the Westerly direction and from the rear fence there is a panomaric view of the Church and lake.
