LLANFAIR-AR-Y-BRYN

In 1868, the parish of Llanfair Ar y Bryn contained the following places:

"LLANFAIR-AR-Y-BRYN, a parish in the hundred of Perfedd, county Carmarthen, 1 mile N. of Llandovery, its post town and railway station on the Llanelly and Vale of Towey line, and 15 miles from Lampeter. The river Bran flows on the E. and the Towey on the W. of the parish, which includes the hamlets of Randir Abbot, Randir Canol, Randir Isaf, and Randir Uchaf. The Romans had a station here on Sarn Helen, which passes through the parish. Lead is found here. The tithes were commuted in 1839. The living is a vicarage annexed to that of Llandingat, in the diocese of St. David's. The church is dedicated to St. Mary, and, as the name of the place indicates, stands on a hill, being within the limits of the ancient camp. Roman coins and other remains have been found here."

"ABBOT, a hamlet in the parish of Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn, hundred of Perfedd, county Carmarthen, 1 mile N. of Llandovery."

"CANOL, a hamlet in the parish of Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn, hundred of Perfedd, county Carmarthen, 1 mile N. of Llandovery."

"GLAN BRAN, a village in the parish of Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn, situated in the N.E. part of the county of Carmarthen, South Wales, 4 miles N.E. of Llandovery. Glan Bran Park is the principal residence."

"ISAF, a hamlet in the parish of Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn, hundred of Perfedd, county Carmarthen, 1 mile N. of Llandovery."

"RHANDIR, (along with Abbot, Canol, Isaf and Rhiwlas) hamlets in the parish of Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn, hundred of Perfedd, county Carmarthen, 1 mile N. of Llandovery. They are situated between the rivers Towy and Bran. The district is traversed by the ancient road Sarn Helen, and was probably the site of a Roman camp."

"UCHAF, a hamlet in the parish of Llanfair-ar-y-Bryn, hundred of Perfedd, county Carmarthen, 1 mile N. of Llandovery."
