Llanddowror  Carmarthenshire


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

LLANDOWROR, a parish in the district and county of Carmarthen; near the river Taff, 3 miles SW of St. Clears r. station, and 3½ NW by N of Laugharne. Posttown, St. Clears. Acres, 1,783. Real property, £1,264. Pop. in 1851,403; in 1861,339. Houses, 75. The decrease of pop. was caused partly by the discontinuance of a large hotel. ...

The property is all in one estate. The living is a rectory in the diocese of St. David's. Value, £132.* Patron, Lord Milford. The church contains a monument to a former rector, G. Jones, by Mrs. Bevan, the foundress of the Welsh circulating schools; and it was reported in 1859 as bad.
