Loveston

"LOVESTON, a parish in the hundred of NARBERTH, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 5 miles (S.S.W.) from Narberth, containing 180 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated in the south-eastern part of the county, and intersected by the turnpike road leading from Pembroke to Carmarthen, comprises a moderate extent of arable and pasture land, the whole of which is enclosed and cultivated. The soil is fertile and productive: the substratum of the parish is stone coal of good quality, but it is not at present worked; and only a small quantity of culm is raised, sufficient for the immediate supply of the inhabitants. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of St. David's rated in the king's books at £4. 5. 5., endowed with £600 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Earl Cawdor. The average annual expenditure for the maintenance of the poor is £57. 11." [From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]
