This parshi, which is supposed to derive its name from the dedication of its church, is situated at the north-westen extremity of the county, and on the shore of the Irish sea.... The church, dedicated to St. Melid, is not remarkable for any peculiarity of architectural detail. ... In the hamlet of Prestatyn, in this parish, are some vestiges of an ancient castle, called Plas Prestatyn." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
