Enw'r crewr/crewyr: Plas Onn estate
Hanes bywgraffyddol/gweinyddol: In 1708, Griffith Williams, clerk, is the first person to be described as of Plas Onn, though his family had been living at Nercwys, Flintshire. His kinsmen also owned lands in Llanarmon yn Ial and Llanferres, Denbighshire. By 1712, Plas Onn had passed to a branch of the Coytmore family of Llanllechid, Caernarfonshire. At that date the estate comprised lands in Nercwys, Arddynwent, Bryncoed, Brychanillt, Tre'r Beirdd, Hartsheath and Mold townships. It remained in the hands of the Coytmore family until the death of Richard Coytmore without issue in about 1766. The estate then passed to John Williams of Ruthin and Edward Jones of Llandyrnog as co-heirs of the late Mary Coytmore, mother of Richard Coytmore. John Williams did not maintain his interest in the estate and ownership passed from Edward Jones to his sons, William and Thomas. The estate was then inherited by Edward Jones Hughes. From around 1834 to about 1882 Plas Onn was held, together with lands in Llanarmon yn Ial and Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd, by Robert Hughes. On his death the inheritance was disputed between Frederick James Hughes of London, Margaret Simner of Denbigh, Jane Jones of Denbigh and later of Rhyl, and John Jones of Denbigh, all of whom claimed to be the lawful heirs of Robert Hughes. The estate was eventually divided between John Jones who had the Denbighshire portions and Frederick James Hughes who had Plas Onn and the Flintshire estate, though sharing the mineral rights with Jane Jones. The estate was put up for sale in 1903.
