Pigot & Co South Wales 1844

The information  below relating to Pembroke, Pembroke Dock (or Pater) and Neighbourhoods  was extracted  by Denise Robinson from the CD of the same title published by Archive CD Books.


PEMBROKE is a market town, and borough, both corporate and parliamentary, in the hundred of Castle Martin, and county of its name; 253 miles from London, 7 E. by S. from Milford Haven, and 10 S. from Haverfordwest, and the like distance west from Tenby; advantageously seated on a creek of the harbour of Milford Haven, navigable for vessels of two hundred tons burden, 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, aldermen and councillors, in number altogether twenty four being three aldermen and nine councillors for each ward - Pembroke forming one, and Pembroke Dock the other. The borough is contributory with Tenby, Wiston and Milford, in returning one member to parliament. The present representative is Sir John Owen, Bart, Lord Lieutenant, &c.; and the county member is Viscount Emlyn, eldest son of the Earl of Cawdor.

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; upwards of nine hundred workmen and artificers are constantly employed in the yard, beside the officers, &c. So eligibly situated is Pembroke yard for naval purposes, that a first class frigate has been launched there at neap tides. The post-office steam packet establishment has been removed to Pembroke Dock from Milford; a new pier and government storehouses have been erected, and a road, communicating with the main one to London, is completed. There is also a large fort for the protection of the dockyard; and military barracks are erecting on the hills immediately over it. 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, at no distant period, become a maritime station and arsenal of first-rate importance. Pembroke Dock is admirably calculated for extensive mercantile transactions; and among the inhabitants of the two places are several respectable merchants, who have a trade with Ireland, Newfoundland, the ports of Cornwall, and others in the British channel.

At Pembroke are two excellent inns, the 'Golden Lion', and the 'Royal Hotel;' they are both posting houses.

Pembroke has three parish churches, namely St. Mary's, St. Nicholas', and St. Michael's; the last named has been rebuilt, on the old site, and is now a very elegant, convenient and spacious structure. There are other places of worship, both here and at the Dock, for various religious denominations. The three parishes form one vicarage, which is in the gift of Sir John Owen, Bart. There is an extensive charity here, founded by a gentleman of the name of Jones, which affords pecuniary assistance to persons of limited means. The benefits of this charity have lately been extended to Pembroke Dock, principally through the exertions of Dr. Thomas, one of the trustees appointed by the Lord Chancellor; and its funds have recently been considerably increased. There is another charity from which similar advantages are anticipated.

The vicinity of Pembroke boasts several interesting ruins; and the general appearance of the country around is highly picturesque. The castle, which is a singular remnant of antiquity, stands at the west end of the town, at the very edge of a precipice. It is remarkable as the birthplace of Henry VII, and also for its gallant defence whilst held for Charles I. In the rock under the castle is a natural cavern, noted for its fine echo; this is supposed to have formed the storeroom of the garrison, as there are remains of stairs leading to the building above.

The market days at Pembroke are Wednesday and Saturday; and on Tuesday and Friday at Pembroke Dock. The fairs are held on the 11th of May, and 23rd of September, chiefly for cattle, at which no toll is taken - the corporation having generously abandoned their right to tolls on cattle sold at those fairs. The three parishes contained, in 1831, 6,511 inhabitants; and by the last census (taken that June, 1841), 8,126.
