"HUBBERSTON, a parish in the hundred of RHÔS, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 1 mile (W. by N.) from Milford, on the turnpike road from Haverfordwest to Haking, or Old Milford, containing 1013 inhabitants. This parish is situated on a creek or inlet of Milford Haven . . . Boat-building is carried on to a considerable extent at Haking, or Old Milford, and affords employment to a few of the inhabitants of this place, which is now included within the boundaries of the new contributory borough of Milford. . . The church, dedicated to St. David, is a small, ancient, and venerable structure, in the early style of English architecture, with a lofty square embattled tower: in the chancel are three elegantly canopied recesses, probably for the officiating priests, or perhaps appropriated to the dignitaries of the priory on particular occasions. There is a place of worship for Wesleyan Methodists . . . " [From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]
