Erbistock is a small village south of Wrexham. Various churches have been present on the site since at least 1254. One of these was built c.1748 and replaced in 1860/1861. The 1860/1861 church (still standing) is significantly different from that in the painting suggesting that the depicted church was that which stood between 1748 and 1860. Samuel Lewis mentioned Erbistock in his ‘Topographical Dictionary of Wales', 1833 and 1849: 'This parish, which by tradition is said to have been originally an appendage to the ancient monastery of Bangor, is situated on the river Dee, which is navigable about four miles below it, and which is enclosed and in a good state of cultivation.
