COWBRIDGE is a parliamentary borough, market and post town in the parish and hundred of its own name, situated in the pleasant, fertile and well-cultivated vale of Glamorgan. It is 172 (by rail 186) miles W. from London, 56 S.W. from Bristol (via Bristol and South Wales Railway), 12 W. from Cardiff, 7 E. from Bridgend, and 40 E. from Swansea. It is in the Bridgend and Cowbridge union and county court district, the Cardiff district Court of Bankruptcy, and in the diocese of Llandaff, and deanery of Gro-Neath (lower division). The town consists chiefly of one long street, stretching from east to west, containing some well built houses, a Town Hall and convenient Market House. It is a contributory borough, with Cardiff and Llantrisant, in returning one member to Parliament; and is governed by a mayor and two bailiffs, the former appointed by the Marquis of Bute for life, and the latter elected by the burgesses annually. A court of record may be holden under the charter of Charles II. but the Corporation do not avail themselves of the privilege; the only court is one of common council, held as occasion may require, for transacting the borough business. Petty sessions are held at the Police Station every alternate Tuesday. This place is without manufactures and its trade, which is local and domestic, is chiefly supported by those engaged in agriculture, and by the market and fairs which are numerous and well attended. In the eleventh century the town was encompassed by a wall, by Robert de St. Quinton, one of the Roman adventurers, who afterwards rebuilt and strengthened a castle called Llanbethian, situated near the village, of which only one of the gates now remains standing. The parish church of St. Mary is a handsome building in the Norman style of architecture, with square tower and peal of eight bells, and was restored in 1851 at a cost of #1,400. Dr. Benjamin H. Malkin, the celebrated historian of South Wales, was buried here, and there is a tablet to his memory. There are also chapels for English and Welsh Baptists and Wesleyan and Calvinistic Methodists. The living is a vicarage consolidated with Llanblethian and Welsh St. Donats, in the gift of the dean and chapter of Gloucester. The Grammar School was founded and endowed by Sir. Leoline Jenkins, was who judge of the prerogative court, and Secretary of State in the reign of James II., and had been educated at the school. He not only endowed the school but gave the site of the present building. He founded six monitorships each of the present value of #16 10s. and provided for the admission of certain boys free. The scholarships and fellowships originally attatched to the school have been, as in most foundations, thrown open to competition by the Royal Commission, in granting to English boys educated in the school equal advantages with the Welsh, in competing for the scholarships of Jesus College, Oxford. There are also large and commodious Board schools. There is a branch of the Taff Vale Railway from Llantrisant station (Great Western) to this town. The market is held on Tuesday; and there are twelve great markets or fairs in the year, namely - first Tuesday in January and February, on the Tuesday before the 25th March, first Tuesday in April, May 4th, June24th, the first Tuesday in July and August, September 29th, and the first Tuesday in October, November and December.
