Freystrop  Pembrokeshire


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

FREYSTROP, a parish in Haverfordwest district, Pembroke; on the river Cleddau, near the South Wales railway, 2½ miles SSE of Haverfordwest. Post town, Haverfordwest. Acres, 1, 637; of which 45 are water. Real property, £1, 601; of which £387 are in mines. Pop. in 1851, 679; in 1861, 576. Houses, 126. The decrease of pop. was caused by the emigration of coal miners. The property is divided among a few. The living is a rectory in the diocese of St. Davids. Value, £145. Patron, the Lord Chancellor. The church is very good; and there is an Independent chapel.
