"KNELSTON, or KNOLLSTON, a parish in the hundred of SWANSEA, county of GLAMORGAN, SOUTH WALES, 12 miles (W. by S.) from Swansea, containing 125 inhabitants. This is a very small parish, and the church, which was dedicated to St. Maurice, is now in ruins. Marriages, baptisms, and burials, are solemnized at the church of the adjoining parish of Llanddewi, for which additional duty a certain stipend is paid to the vicar of that parish by the Dean and Chapter of St. David's, to whom the rectorial tithes of Knelston are appropriated. The living is a vicarage, not in charge, in the archdeaconry of Carmarthen, and diocese of St. David's, and in the patronage of the Dean and Chapter. A school for the gratuitous instruction of children of this parish, and of the parishes of Llanddewi and Llangennith, is principally supported by the incumbent. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £41 16"( A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis 1833)
