In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Llanbadarn Odwyn like this:
LLANBADARN-ODWYN, a parish in Tregaron district, Cardigan; on the river Ayron, and on the SarnHelen way, 3 miles W by N of Tregaron r. station. Posttown, Tregaron, under Carmarthen. Acres, 4,425. Real property, £1,735. Pop., 527. Houses, 107. The suffix Odwyn, in the name of the parish, signifies ' ' very white,'' and alludes to the appearance of the church on a high bleak eminence, which commands an extensive view along the valley of the Ayron. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the p. curacy of Llanddewi-Brefi, in the diocese of St. David's. There is a Calvinistic Methodist chapel. .
