"CRINOW, a parish in the hundred of DUNGLEDDY, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 1 mile (E.) from Narberth, containing 86 inhabitants. This parish, though in the hundred of Dungleddy, is almost entirely surrounded by that of Narberth, and, with the exception of a very small portion, belongs solely to Roger Eaton, Esq., whose elegant mansion of Park Glās is situated within its limits. The living is a rectory not in charge, in the archdeaconry and diocese of St.David's, endowed with £600 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the King, as Prince of Wales. The church is a very small and simple edifice, without tower or steeple, and destitute of any architectural ornament." [From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]


The 1851 census for this parish has been indexed by Dyfed Family History Society.
