In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Monkton like this:
MONCKTON, or ST. NICHOLAS, a parish in the district and county of Pembroke; on the Pembroke creek of Milford Haven, ½ a mile W of Pembroke. It is divided into M. Within and M. Without; and is partly within Pembroke borough. Post town, Pembroke. Acres, 4,629; of which 360 are water. Real property, £6,245; of which £426 are in quarries. Pop. of M. Within, or the part within Pembroke borough, in 1851,877; in 1861,1,011. Houses, 195. Pop. of M. Without, in 1851,668; in 1861,697. Houses, 140. The increase of pop. arose mainly from the extension of government works. The church is tolerable. See PEMBROKE.
