"NASH, an extra-parochial district, adjoining the parish of LLISWORNEY, in the hundred of COWBRIDGE, county of GLAMORGAN, SOUTH WALES, 2 miles (S. W. by W.) from Cowbridge; containing 10 inhabitants. This place, which is situated in the south- eastern part of the county, and within a short distance of the Bristol Channel, comprises about three hundred acres of rich arable and pasture land, inclosed and in a good state of cultivation. The ancient seat of the Carnes, now the residence of a descendant of that family, is a spacious mansion, chiefly erected in the reign of Elizabeth; the grounds, which are tastefully disposed, comprehend some pleasingly diversified scenery, and the distant views are not destitute of interest. A chapel for the family was formerly regularly served; but divine service has not been performed in it within the memory of the oldest inhabitant."
