It is plentifully supplyed with Salmon &amp; other Fish, from the said river, and with Flesh, Fowl, &amp;c. from ye Country adjacent, at a very reasonable rate. It had formerly Walls and a very strong Castle which were repaired with considerable additions by Gilbert de Clare, for ye defence of ye Town, which had been often beseiged and burnt by ye Welsh Princes Griffyd ap Rhys &amp; his Brother Rhys. The Corporation (which sends a Member to Parliament) consists of a Mayor, 2 Sheriffs and 6 Aldermen, a Town Clerk, Sword Bearer and 2 Serjeants at Mace, &amp;c. Here flourished ye famous British Merlin ano. 480, who for his Extraordinary learning in those times, and some skill in ye Mathematicks was reputed a Prophet, or Magician."

The town is wholly within the parish of St. Peter, to which, by charter of the 4th of George III., the Priory-street, or Old Carmarthen, was united, the whole forming what is now called the borough of Carmarthen. ... The living of St. Peter's is a discharged vicarage, in the archdeaconry of Carmarthen, and diocese of St. David's, ... Of the five churches which formerly existed here, only those of St. Peter and Llanllwch are remaining; ... The church, or chapel of Llanllwch ...: the living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Vicar of St. Peter's ... There are two places of worship each for Baptists, Independents, and Wesleyan Methodists, and one each for Calvinistic Methodists and Unitarians. ..."
