"MOUNTON, or MONKTON, a parish in the hundred of NARBERTH, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 2 miles (W.S.W.) from Narberth, containing 41 inhabitants. This place, which is situated in the south-eastern part of the county, and near the source of a small rivulet which flows into the eastern Cleddy, is but of small extent. The parish comprises a large portion of woodland, called Canaston wood, together with some good arable and pasture land, which is enclosed and cultivated. The living is consolidated with the rectory of Narberth, to which the church is now considered a chapel of ease, and is in the arch deaconry and diocese of St. David's. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is £8. 9." [From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]
