The redundant English name of Newmarket can often be seen in older documents.
"NEWMARKET, a parish in the Media division of the hundred of Prestatyn, county of Flint, on the old line of road between Chester and Holyhead, 6 miles (W.N.W.) from Holywell, containing 631 inhabitants. In Pope Nicholas' Taxation, this place is called Rywlyvnwyd, by which name it is also mentioned in a record so late as the middle of the sixteenth century, having been formerly a chapelry in the parish of Dyserth. According to Mr. Pennant, its ancient name was Trelawnyd, "for which," says the distinguished antiquary, "I can find no satisfactory reason." ... Newmarket has greatly declined from its former consequence, and presents now only the appearance of a village, though of considerable size." (A Topographical Dictionary of Wales, 1833, Samuel Lewis)
