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

"HUBBERSTON, a parish in the hundred of Roose, county Pembroke, 1 mile W. of Milford, and 8 miles from Haverfordwest. The village, which is considerable, is included within the borough of Milford, and is situated on a creek of the Haven. It has risen into importance through the establishment of a post-office station, and the current of a considerable trade in the export of corn, limestone, and coal. There is an observatory, and the remains of Pill Priory a little to the E. of the village. The tithes were commuted in 1839. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of St. David's, value £130. The church, dedicated to St. David, has some old stalls. The parochial charities produce about£8 per annum."
