Hi Paul,

According to Davies (1967) and Humphery-Smith (1998) the parish of
Llanfeugan (aka Llanfeigan and Llanfigan) is in Breconshire. It's
located about 3 miles south-east of the town of Brecon.

Wales Press. Cardiff. ISBN 0-7083-1038-9
HUMPHERY-SMITH, Cecil (ed) 1995 "The Phillimore Atlas and Index of
Parish Registers", Phillimore & Co. Ltd. Chichester. ISBN 0-85033-950-2

My Ordnance Survey maps don't show any village called Llanfeugan, but
the parish church (St Meugan's) is marked at grid reference SO087246
near the village of Pencelli.

Best wishes,

John
