"LAVERNOCK, otherwise LARNOCK, a parish in the hundred of DINAS-POWIS, county of GLAMORGAN, SOUTH WALES, 7 1/2 miles (S. by W.) from Cardiff, containing 77 inhabitants. The living is a rectory not in charge, consolidated with the vicarage of Penarth, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Llandaf. The church, dedicated to St. Lawrence, is situated close to the edge of the water, the parish lying on the shore of the Bristol channel. Lead-ore has been obtained here, but the works are now discontinued : the principal substratum is lyas limestone, in which the usual fossils abound : in the cliffs under this limestone are found tripoli, and lapis cariosus, or rotten stone, intermingled with a red marly earth, in which are imbedded blocks of gypseous alabaster. The average annual expenditure for the maintenance of the poor is £27. 10." ( A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis 1833)
