ST. EINGAN, OR ENEON, C.

ENEON BHRENIN, called, by the Latin writers of the Scottish history, Anianus, was a king of the Scots, in a considerable part of North-Britain, and son of Owen Danwyn, the son of Eneon Yrth, son of Cunedha Wlegin, king of Cambria, a very powerful prince in the southern parts of Scotland, in which Cumberland and the neighboring parts of England were then comprised. Eingan was cousin-german to the great Maelgwn Gwyneth, king of Britain in North-Wales, whose father was Caswallon lawhir, the brother of Owen Danwyn; and his mother Medif, daughter of Voilda ap Talu Traws, of Nanconwey, near Bangor. Eingan, or Eigan, leaving his royalty in the North, went into Gwyneth, the old name of North-Wales, probably from the great prince of that name. There he retired to Lhyn, or Lheyn, now a deanery in the diocese and archdeaconry of Bangor. In that part he built a church, and spent the remainder of his days in the fear and service of God. He seems to have died about the year 590. St. Eingan is titular saint of this church, called to this day Llanengan. See Powel’s History of Wales, p. 12, and Brown-Willis’s Survey of Bangor.
