The National Gazetteer (1868)]
"TRELLECK, a parish in the upper division of Ragland hundred, county Monmouth, 4½ miles a of Monmouth, its post town, and 8 from Chepstow. The village is situated near Beacon Hill, on the road from Monmouth to Chepstow, and has a mineral spring. The parish contains the chapelry of Trelleck Grange, and is so called from a group of monoliths near the village, supposed to be the remains of some Druidical monument.

In a garden close by is a tumulus 450 feet in circumference, said to be the spot where the earls of Clare had a castle, but is more probably a barrow raised over the bodies of the Britons slain here by Harold, as recorded on the pedestal of an ancient sundial near the churchyard gate.

The living is a vicarage* annexed to that of Penalth, in the diocese of Llandaff, value £430. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas. There is also the district church of Trelleck Grange, the living of which is a perpetual curacy, value £74. The parochial charities produce about £67, of which £43 go to Babington's school, &c."
