Site Notes

Rhys/1896, 105: `I questioned Mr. Lewis [the vicar] as to the carn indicated by the name. He knew of no trace of it, and I suspect that it occupied the ground on which the house and outhouses now stand. As to the name, I suppose the h in the name Carn Hedryn is due to the Welsh syllabic accent, as in the case of ugain, `20'; in un ar hugain, `21'; and that h-Edryn is to be identified with the Edren of the Saint's name; but there is nothing to indicate now whether the Welsh should be written Edrin or Edryn'.

Macalister/1945, 425, records that the first known location for the stone is its use as a gatepost.
