Nercwys is a village, community and ecclesiastical parish in Flintshire, Wales.

Before 1974 the village was in the historic county of Flintshire and, between 1974 and 1996 in the County of Clwyd. In 1996 it became part of the modern county of Flintshire.

The redundant spelling Nerquis can often be seen in older documents.


"NERQUIS (NERCWYS), a chapelry in the parish and hundred of Mold, county of Flint, 2.5 miles (S.) from Mold, containing 470 inhabitants. ... The chapel, dedicated to St. Mary, is a neat edifice with a handsome steeple, and contains a richly decorated niche in the interior, in which was anciently a figure of the Virgin." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
