Weston Rhyn is recorded as Westune in the Doomsday Book. Tun or ton means settlement or hamlet, rhyn means hill or mount. Originally the townships of Weston Rhyn and Bronygarth were in the Parish of St Martins. In 1870 they were formed into a separate ecclesiastical district known as "the Lodge" and then in 1898 into the civil parish of Weston Rhyn. (Source: Wikipedia).

Weston Rhyn Parish Council consists of 13 Councillors elected for a term of four years who will now hold office until May 2025.
