Adpar  Cardiganshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Adpar like this:

ADPAR, or Atpar a small ancient town in Llandyfriog parish, Cardigan. It stands on the river Teifi, opposite Newcastle-Emlyn, separated from that town only by the river, and is practically a suburb of it. But politically it is a borough by prescription, and now includes Newcastle-Emlyn within its borough limits; and it unites with Cardigan, Aberystwith, Lampeter, and Tregaron, in sending a member to parliament. Pop. of the old borough, 555; of the new borough, 1,473. Houses, 136 and 358. See Newcastle-emlyn.
