Garway, Herefordshire - Extract from National Gazetteer, 1868

[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer (1868)]
"GARWAY, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of Wormelow, county Hereford, 7 miles N.W. of Monmouth, its post town, and 12 S. of Hereford. The Pontrilas station, on the Hereford and Abergavenny branch of the West Midland line of railway, is 5 miles to the N.W. of the village. Garway is situated on the river Monnow, and contains the hamlet of Broad Oak. The living is a perpetual curacy in the diocese of Hereford, value £81. The church is an ancient stone structure with square tower, and has a fine Saracenic arch, said to have been built by the Knights Templars. The parochial charities produce nearly £60 per annum, the principal of which is Scudamore's, for the assistance of poor widows, and for apprenticing children. The Baptists have a chapel, and there is a National school for both sexes, also one belonging to the Baptists. Lord Southwell is lord of the manor. Garway Court is the principal residence."

"LLANITHOG, an extra parochial place, in the upper division of the hundred of Wormelow, county Hereford, in the vicinity of Ross."
[Note: It's not actually that near to Ross. LLanithog borders on 3 sides with the parish of Kentchurch, but its east boundary is with Garway, which is in Wormelow hundred, whereas Kentchurch is in Webtree hundred, so it seemed most appropriate to include it with Garway - RRL]
