"UZMASTON, a parish in the hundred of DUNGLEDDY, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 1 1/2 miles (S.E.) from Haverfordwest, containing 525 inhabitants, This parish, commonly called "Ismiston," is situated on the Western Cleddy river, and comprises a moderate extent of enclosed and cultivated land: the soil is generally fertile, and the inhabitants are chiefly employed in agriculture. The western part of it, containing the straggling extremity of a suburb of Haverfordwest, called Cartlett, is included within the new electoral limits of that borough. The parish rates are levied by the ploughland, in the measurement of which ten feet and a half are allowed to each rod. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of St. David's, endowed with 600 royal bounty, and 400 parliamentary grant, and in the patronage of the Precentor and Chapter of St. David's. The church, dedicated to St. Ismael, is not remarkable for any architectural details. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is 229. 4."
[From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]
