This parish is situated on the river Aron by which it is bounded on the north-east, and from which it derives the adjunct to its name. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry of Cardigan, and diocese of St.David's, rated in the king's books at 5, endowed with 400 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Bishop of St. David's.
