Pen-Clawdd / Pen-y-Clawdd

"PEN-Y-CLAWDD, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of Ragland, county Monmouth, 5 miles S.W. of Monmouth, its post town, and 3 from Ragland. The parish, which is of small extent, is situated on the old road from Usk to Monmouth. The village consists of a few farmhouses. Stone is quarried for building purposes. The appropriate tithes, belonging to the Archdeacon and Chapter of Llandaff, have been commuted for a rent-charge of £50. The living is a perpetual curacy annexed to that of Llangoven, in the diocese of Llandaff. The church, dedicated to St. Martin, is an ancient structure. There is a village school. The parochial charities produce about £2 per annum."

[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868)
