[In the Book of Reference, Parish of Llanasa, Ord. Survey, 1872, the following particulars are given — Picton, land 792.785; roads 26.659; railway 6.050; water 5.835; total area of the township 831.329 acres. It is interesting to observe that whilst in Axton, the larger township, there were, in 1872, twenty woods, Picton formerly noted for its timber, contained twenty-nine woods.] The Llanasa Inclosure Act, 51 Geo. III., c. 149. — In a law suit, Attorney General v. Mostyn, the late Mr. Charles Potts, Solicitor, of Chester, made an affidavit filed loth February, 1854, in which the boundaries of the townships of Picton and Axton were given in detail, these particulars would have been inscribed in the affidavit probably for the purpose of defining the Manor of Mostyn, which adjoins Picton and Axton, and would have no further reference to the latter. (Note supplied by the late Mr. Cope, Solicitor, Holywell). Peter Moston (Piers Mostyn) was Sheriff of Flint, 6-7 Edw. VI. and 1 Mary, 1552-1553, and was returned member of Parlia- ment for the Borough in 1558. [See Taylor Historic Notices of Flint.] REX OMNIBUS AD QUOS ET CETERA SALUTEM.
