Administrative and biographical history: The parish of Michaelston-super-Afan or Llanfihangel-ynys-Afan, was in the county of Glamorgan. Before 1911 the parish was split into two civil parishes, Michaelston Higher and Michaelston Lower. Civil parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894, taking over responsibilities from parish vestry meetings. The records can include minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974.
