"THREAP-WOOD, an extra-parochial district, said to be partly included in the hundred of Broxton, county of Chester, but chiefly in that of Maelor, county of Flint, 3 miles (W.S.W.) from Malpas, containing 477 inhabitants. It is surrounded by the parishes of Malpas, Hanmer, and Worthenbury, and until of late years, formed a tract of waste common, which, on accoutn of its extra-parochial exemption from all local jurisdiction, was long the resort of abandoned charcters of every description, and especially of women of loose or blemished morals, who made a transient abode here, to be freed clandestinely from the consequences of illicit amours." [A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis]
Threapwood was an extra-parochial place, partly in Broxton Hundred (Cheshire) and partly in Maelor Hundred (Flintshire), which became a civil parish in 1866. It included the hamlets of Sarn (part) and Upper Threapwood.
