"GANEREW, a parish in the lower division of the hundred of WORMELOW, county of HEREFORD, 3 miles (N. E. by N.) from Monmouth, containing 118 inhabitants. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry and diocese of Hereford, rated in the king's books at £1. 10., and in the patronage of Joseph Pyrke, Esq. The church, dedicated to St. Swithin, is said to be that in which Vortigern, Prince of Dumnonium, was interred. There is a place of worship for Wesleyan Methodists. The river Wye bounds the parish on the south-east: a considerable quantity of limestone is obtained in the vicinity. There are two hills, called. Great and Little Doward; on the slope of the former are the remains of an ancient fortification, distinguished by the name of Arthur's Hall, and on the summit of the latter are traces of another, near which broad arrow heads have been found."
