"MYNACHLOGDÛ (MONACHLOG-DÛ), a parish in the hundred of KEMMES, county of PEMBROKE, SOUTH WALES, 10 miles (N. by E.) from Narberth, containing 447 inhabitants, which is the exact number returned ten years previously, in the census of 1821.This parish is situated near the eastern extremity of the county, bordering upon Carmarthenshire, and comprises a large extent of land, of which a great portion is occupied by the Precelly mountain, but the remainder is enclosed and in a good state of cultivation: the river called the Eastern Cleddy has its source within its limits.The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry and diocese of St. David's, endowed with £1000 royal bounty, and in the patronage of Sir R.B.P. Philipps, Bart. The church, dedicated to St. Dogmael, is not remarkable for any architectural details. The average annual expenditure for the relief of the poor is £92. 6."
