Excerpt: Gorseinon is a town in the South West of Wales, near the Loughor estuary. It was a small village until the late 19th century when it grew around the coal mining and tinplate industries. It is situated in the north west of Swansea, around 6 miles (9.7 km) north west of the city centre. Gorseinon is also a local Government community with its own elected town council. The population of the Gorseinon town council area in the 2001 Census is 7,874. However, the ONS defines an area called the Gorseinon Urban Area which comprises all of the continuous built up area in and around Gorseinon. This area includes Gorseinon, Loughor, Garden Village and has a population of 19,273. The Common Story of Gorseinon is that in the year 991, there were two princes - the Prince of South Wales, Prince Ithol and the Prince of Glamorgan, Prince Meredith. They fought a bloody battle on Garngoch Common and the Prince of South Wales, who was a brutal man, was defeated. Amongst those who took up arms against the Prince of South Wales was a man called Einon Hywell, Einon meaning "leader". After the battle Einon Hywell camped his men on the Gorse, near Penllergaer. The name of Gorseynon was then created, later changed to Gorseinon. In Depth..

Einon, Einion or Eynon is a popular personal name. The village now known as Penllergaer was originally known as Gorseinon or Cor Einon (Einon's Marsh). Popular Tradition: Einon was a warrior prince of Dyfed, who was mortally wounded in a battle. Einon escaped from the battle but he was so badly injured that he died on marshland which became known as Cors Einon or Einon's Marsh. Historical Evidence for Einon. Einon ap Owain ap Hywel Dda, (Einon son of Owain son of Hywel Dda) was an historical character. He was born in about 933 in Dinefwr, Llandyfeisant, Carmarthenshire,
