Pigot & Co South Wales 1830

The information  below relating to  Pembroke, Pembroke Dock (or Pater) and Neighbourhoods 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.


Pembroke is a market and borough town, in the hundred of Castle-Martin, and county of its name; 253 miles from London, and 10 from Haverfordwest; advantageously situated on a creek of the harbour of Milford Haven, navigable for vessels of 200 tons burthen up to the town. Although Pembroke appears to be the capital of the county from giving to the latter its name, yet the assizes are not held here but at Haverfordwest. The municipal government of this ancient borough is vested in a mayor and bailiffs, assisted by a common council, in number unlimited: it returns one member to parliament in conjunction with Tenby and Wiston, the right of voting being with the mayors, bailiffs and burgesses of the three boroughs; the present Representative is Hugh Owen Owen, Esq. only son of Sir Jno. Owen, Bart., Lord Lieutenant, and member for this county.

The main consequence of this town is derived from the contiguity of Pembroke Dock, or Pater, where is one of the finest dock-yards in the kingdom, and where some of the largest ships in the navy have been built and are still building, and the Prince William, intended to carry 120 guns, is now nearly ready for launching; upwards of 500 workmen and artificers are constantly employed in the yard, besides officers, etc.

The post office steam-packet establishment will be removed hither from Milford Haven, as soon as the new pier, now erecting here, is completed. There is also a large fort building here; and it is in contemplation to form military barracks on the hills, immediately over the dock-yard.

A large market-place, likewise, has been enclosed; and the several alterations, buildings and improvements, at this place, are of a magnitude to indicate that Pembroke Dock will, in a short time, be a maritime station and arsenal of first-rate importance.

Among the inhabitants of Pembroke and Dock are several respectable merchants, who have a trade with Ireland, Newfoundland, the ports of Cornwall, and others in the British channel. Here are many well-furnished shops, and some good Inns; amongst the latter, the "Angel" may be considered the principal.

Pembroke has three parish churches, respectively dedicated to St. Mary, St Nicholas, and St Michael; besides several meeting-houses, both here and at Dock, for different sects of dissenters. The livings of the several parishes are united, and is a vicarage, in the gift of Sir John Owen, Bart.; and the incumbent is the Rev. Charles Phillips, B.D., Canon and treasurer of St. David's.

The vicinity of Pembroke boasts many interesting ruins of castles: and the general appearance of the country around is highly picturesque - the surface varied by gentle hills and valleys, well tilled and well watered. The market days are Wednesday and Saturday; and the annual fairs are held in May and September, chiefly for cattle. The population of the three parishes, according to the parliamentary returns for 1821, consisted of 4,925 inhabitants.
