Real property, £907. Pop., 150. Houses, 32.—The parish contains also the hamlet of Dinham; and its Post town is Chepstow. ...

Acres, 1,986. Real property, £1,533. Pop., 187. Houses, 39. The property is divided among a few. Llanvair Castle belonged, in 1270, to the Pagan family; and is now a ruin, comprising a square tower and two round ones, in juxtaposition with a farm-house. Dinham Castle is now reduced to a few wood-covered vestiges. Roman coins, urns, and other relics have been found. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the vicarage of Caerwent, in the diocese of Llandaff. The church is good.
