Merioneth is an historic county of Wales
From ĞiğThe Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales, (1870-72)Ğ/iğ:
A maritime county of North Wales; bounded, on the NW, by Carnarvonshire; on the N, by Carnarvonshire and Denbighshire; on the NE, by Denbighshire; on the SE, by Montgomeryshire; on the S, by Cardiganshire; on the W, by Cardigan bay or the Irish sea.
The dwellings of the peasantry, in general, are extremely rude; the farm buildings themselves, for the most part, are very poor; the fences are of stone or sods; and the chief fuel is peat.
The market towns are Corwen, Bala, Dolgelly, Dinas-Mowddwy, Harlech, Barmouth, and Towyn; and there are upwards of 120 villages and hamlets.

The Name Ellis.........
ELLIS Derived from the W forename ĞiğElisedd, Ğ/iğfound frequently in early texts. In speech the final Ğiğdd Ğ/iğwas dropped, giving Elise (three syllables), Elisa and Elisha (both reflecting dialect pronunciation). Elisa/Elissa survived in records fairly late and even appears as ĞiğEliza Ğ/iğin some: 1670 Jane vch Ellissey (St Asaph Probate);  ĞiğEliza Ğ/iğJohn ap William, yeoman; 1674 Hugh Elissa, labourer;  Lewis Ellissey (Bangor Probate). Elias and Eliseus, biblical names, came on the scene after the Reformation, the former being late and wide-spread enough to form a small surname of its own (see ELIAS). Both these names may have augmented the numbers of Ellis as a surname. (At an earlier period, it should be noted, Elis/Ellis was used in England as a form of OT Elias, and an uncommon English surname formed as a result; variants include Ellice and Helis.) From ab Ellis comes Bellis, prevalent in nearby English counties, and this is one source of the name Bayliss.
Ğiğ(WG2 Ğ/iğxii, Dwnn ii, Griffith, Nicholas.)
Ğiğ1813-37 (III): Ğ/iğEllis is found in significant concentrations across much of north Wales, particularly throughout Merionethshire (Ardudwy 2.10%) but also in north Montgomeryshire (Llanfyllin 3.14%), Flintshire (Rhuddlan 2.96%) and Caemarfonshire (Cymydmaen 1.52%). Elsewhere it is found only spasmodically and with a very low incidence (usually <0.2%).
ĞiğGuppy: Ğ/iğNorth Wales, 0.25%; Cheshire, 0.11%; Gloucestershire, 0.14%; Shropshire, 0.22%; also eastern and southern English counties, probably reflecting English med. origin.
