"LLYS-Y-VRÂN, a parish in the hundred of DUN-GLEDDY, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 9 miles (N.E.) from Haverfordwest, containing 202 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated nearly in the centre of the county, comprises a considerable tract of arable and pasture land, the whole of which, with only a very small exception, is enclosed and in a good state of cultivation: the soil is various, but generally productive. The surrounding scenery, though not distinguished by any striking peculiarity of feature, is agreeably diversified; and the views over the adjacent country are interesting and extensive. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of St. David's, rated in the king's books at £3. 0. 5 endowed with £400 royal bounty, and in the joint patronage of Sir R.B.P. Philipps, Bart., and Col. Scourfield, the former of whom has two turns and the latter one. The church, dedicated to St. Meilyr, who flourished about the middle of the fifth century, is not distinguished by any architectural details of importance. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor amounts to £76. 4." [From A Topographical Dictionary of Wales (S. Lewis, 1833).]
