Cilcain is a village and parish, near Mold in Flintshire, north-east Wales. The village has an mining history and includes a post office, a public house, a parish church, a primary school (Ysgol y Foel) and a village hall. Cilcain borders the parishes of Rhosesmor, Rhes-y-cae and Rhydymwyn and includes the village of Rhydymwyn.
The Welsh placename Cilcain, which has also in the past been spelled as Kilken and Cilcen, has been suggested to derive from cil meaning ‘retreat’ and cain meaning ‘fair’ or ‘pleasant’ in the Welsh language.
It is uncertain from historical records whether any of our Lloyd family ever lived in the village itself and instead probably lived in farms near the village such as Ty-n-y-caeau and Pant-y-buarth.
The village is close to almost all of the other Lloyd residences and is close to the boundary with Denbighshire and the town of Mold, Aberduna Hall and Haford which are important places in our history.
