AMBLESTON

In 1868, the parish of Ambleston contained the following places:

"AMBLESTON, a parish in the hundred of Dungleddy, in the county of Pembroke, South Wales, 7 miles to the N.E. of Haverfordwest. It is watered by a branch of the river Cloddy. It is chiefly interesting as the site of an ancient camp, called by the people Castle Flemish, which is supposed to be the remains of a Roman station. The popular name arose from the circumstance that the camp was at one time occupied by Flemings, who settled in Pembrokeshire. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of St. David's, value £183, in the patronage of the Prince of Wales. The church is dedicated to St. Mary. There is a chapel belonging to the Calvinistic Methodists."
