Source of earliest mention: 1832: History of Northop in the Cambrian quarterly magazine and Celtic repertory


In 1832 the following was written: ‘In the north side stood a yew tree, which must have defied the storms for ages; but the steady course of time succeeded, a few years back, in its downfall. When it stood, the Rev. John Owen, late curate of the parish, was buried under its shade’. This was in the mid 17th century, and whether the tombstone still exists in unclear. The Clwyd/Powys Archaeological Trust states that the churchyard has been largely cleared of early gravestones.
