A Brief History of Dobshill

Dobshill - Dawbes Hill 1615, Dobs Hill 1785

Today Dobshill refers to the cross-roads where the road from Buckley crosses the road from Hawarden to Wrexham. But the hill called Dobshill is actually to the east of the cross-roads. Dawb or Dob or the surname Dobs is a common enough name that appears in Parish Registers.

Despite that we nothing about the particular man who gave his name to the hill.
