"PRENDERGAST, a parish in the hundred of DUNGLEDDY, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, adjoining to and comprising part of the borough of Haverfordwest, and containing 1105 inhabitants. . . The parish is situated between the rivers Hiog and Cleddy, and, near its south-western extremity, is connected with the town of Haverfordwest by a bridge across the latter, from which the village extends chiefly along the road to Cardigan, with a branch street southward; the whole forming an extensive and important suburb of Haverfordwest. A small tract at this angle of the parish, comprising a part of the village lying nearest to the town, is included within the ancient limits of the town and county of the town of Haverfordwest . . . The church, dedicated to St. David, is an ancient and venerable structure, in the early style of English architecture, and in good repair. There is a place of worship for Primitive Methodists. . ."
