Pigot & Co South Wales 1830

The information  below relating to Narberth was extracted  by Pat Powell from the S.O.G  fiche and verified to the CD of the same title published by Archive CD Books.

NARBERTH

Is a small market-town, in the parish and hundred of its name, and county of Pembroke; 238 miles from London, 22 from Carmarthen, and 13 from Pembroke; situated on a branch of the Milford river, and is an ancient place, once noted for its castle, now decayed, and a modern seat erected on its site. There are productive mines of stone-coal and culm in the neighbourhood, but they are not worked to the extent which their importance would seem to demand.

Upon the river, which is navigable to Blackpool, about three miles distant, is a very excellently constructed corn mill, recently erected. The town is governed by one of the high constables of the hundred, who is appointed annually, and must be a resident; assisted by constables elected at the manorial court leet, of which the representatives of the late Nathaniel Phillips Esquire, are lords.

The places of worship are, one church, and three chapels for dissenters; the living of Narberth is a rectory, in the gift of the crown; the present incumbent is the Rev. Wm. Lloyd.

The market is held on Thursday, and there are eight annual fairs for cattle. The parish contained, by the last returns, 2,295 inhabitants.
