"LLANEDARN (LLAN-EDEYRN), a parish in the hundred of KIBBOR, county of GLAMORGAN, SOUTH WALES, on the banks of the Romney, 4 miles (N. E. by N.) from Cardiff, containing 315 inhabitants. This parish, which comprises about two thousand five hundred and fifty acres of land, partly arable and partly pasture, lies on the eastern confine of the county, and the surface, though in general low, presents some pleasing scenery : it gradually rises to the north into an elevated ridge, in some parts richly wooded, and the whole is embellished with several genteel mansions, the principal of which are, New House, the seat of the Rev. Mr. Lewis ; Ruperra, that of Charles Morgan, Esq.; and Cevn Mably, that of Col. Kemeys Kemeys Tynte. To the west the venerable cathedral of Llandaf, and southward Cardiff and the Bristol channel, are included in the prospect. The living is a discharged vicarage, united to that of St. Mellon's, in the county of Monmouth, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Llandaf, rated in the king's books at 5. 8. 11 1/2. The church, dedicated to St. Edeyrn, is a small simple structure. It is stated that St. Edeyrn established a Christian Society here, amounting in number to three hundred persons, but there are no remains of their residence. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is 254. 10."  ( A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis 1833)
