A Brief History Of Tremadog

William Alexander Madocks
(17 June 1773 – September 1828)

William Alexander Madocks was born in London on 17 June 1773 to middle-aged parents.

When he was christened at St Andrew's Church, Holborn, he was given the name William after his grandfather, and Alexander after Alexander the Great, The Madocks family had long associations with Wales, traceable back to the time of King Henry II.
The land (Tremadog) was bought by Maddocks in 1798. It was flat land reclaimed from Traeth Mawr, the estuary of the Afon Glaslyn, and to enhance its appearance Madocks placed the Market Square, the centre of his project, just in front of a great crag of rock, the former edge of the estuary.
By mid-1805 Maddocks had already built some houses on the site of Tremadog. These were built on Traeth Mawr, near Tan-yr-Allt. These houses were located at the bottom of the village
The centre of Tremadog was complete by 1811 and remains unaltered.
