At the Pembrokeshire Record Office in Haverfordwest - amongst the papers of Eaton Evans, solicitors - there is a copy of the marriage settlement of Walter Rice Howell Powell of Maesgwynne, Llanboidy, Carmarthenshire, and Miss Emily Anne Skrine, second daughter of Henry Skrine of Stubbings, Bisham, Berkshire.
The document is dated 30th April 1840.

The marriage settlement lists, in detail, a large number of properties in the parish of Llanboidy.
The information includes not ony the names of tenants in 1840 but also those of previous tenants. In some cases, occupations and relationships to other people are given.


In addition the marriage settlement lists tenants of properties in Llangan, Henllan Amgoed, St Clears and Llanfyrnach. The document can be seen at the Pembrokeshire Record Office under the reference D/EE/32/72
