The original church for the area was probably on the burrows above Three Cliffs Bay. This was besanded in the early 14th century and probably directly replaced by the present one, St John the Baptist Church, Penmaen.
From 1230 to 1540 it was owned by the Knights of St John, and restored in the 19th century by two clergy, a father and son called James, who held the benefice for 90 years.
There are several memorial tablets of interest in the chancel, the earliest of which is dated 1623: this was under the altar but is now on the north wall.
