"PETERSTON super ELY, a parish in the hundred of DINAS-POWIS, county Of GLAMORGAN, SOUTH WALES, 7 miles (w.) from Cardiff, containing 192 inhabitants. This parish, which derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Peter, and its distinguishing adjunct from its situation on the bank of the river Ely, lies in the south-eastern part of the county, and comprises a moderate portion of arable and pasture land, which is in a good state of cultivation. Limestone is found in most parts of the parish, and the procuring of it affords employment to a portion of the inhabitants. The living is a rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Llandaf, rated in the king's books at 7. 12. 8 1/2., and in the patronage of Sir T. D. Aubrey. The church, dedicated to St. Peter, is not distinguished by any architectural details. A parochial school for the gratuitous instruction of poor children, and a Sunday school, are supported principally by subscription. There are in this parish the remains of an ancient castle, Which has been long in ruins ; but nothing satisfactory is known either of its original foundation or of its history. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to 125. 16."  ( A Topographical Dictionary of Wales by Samuel Lewis 1833)
