"REDBARTH (RYDBERTH), a parish in the hundred of NARBERTH, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 4 miles (N.W.) from Tenby, containing 134 inhabitants. This place was formerly a hamlet in the parish of Carew, from which it has been severed and erected into a distinct parish of itself: it is situated in the south- eastern part of the county, and is of very small extent. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of St. David's, endowed with £1200 royal bounty, and £200 parliamentary grant, and originally in the presentation of the Vicar of Carew, but now, by lapse or otherwise, in that of the Bishop of St. David's. The church having fallen into a very dilapidated condition, is now undergoing complete repair. There is a small place of worship for Wesleyan Methodists. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to £6.16." [From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]
