Land and Property

  • Trebeferad - A land settlement in the Vale of Glamorgan
    Research of the Welsh Land Settlement Society's site at Trebeferad (Boverton) can be found within a Local History Diploma Thesis (1993), the work of Paul Stephens, Llantwit Major.
    The Land Settlement Society was formed in 1936, with the purpose of providing employment on the land for unemployed men of depressed areas. Trebeferad was established as a co-operative farm employing 60-70 men, and providing good quality modern housing for them and their families.
    The thesis contains a brief history of the site and its ownership (from the time of the Norman invasion), an ouline of the Act and the rational behind the establishment of the farm, cropping and financial data, conditions of employment, etc.
    Paul can provide information on both the wages, and period of service, if a name is provided.

  • Welsh Land Settlement Society Ltd collection          "The Welsh Land Settlement Society Limited was established in 1936, with the aim of providing employment for men from high unemployment areas. It was an agency of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. The Society set up 'Welsh Land Settlements', throughout the Principality, purchasing land for the purpose. These labour-intensive farms were situated in the Vale of Glamorgan, at Boverton Castle Farm, Trebeferad (Boverton) and Fferm Goch, near Llangan; Llanfair Discoed, Caerwent, Monmouthshire; Leechpool Smallholdings Settlement near Portskewett, Monmouthshire; Rosemarket Holdings, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Vaynor Farm, Narbeth, Pembrokeshire, and Sealand, Flintshire. After the Second World War, the farms proved unable to meet early market requirements, and the company's land and other interests were transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries"
