"BANGOR, a parish in the upper division of the hundred of TROEDYRAUR, county of CARDIGAN, SOUTH WALES, 5 1/2 miles (E) from Newcastle-Emlyn, containing 210 inhabitants. This parish is pleasantly situated on the river Teivy, the banks of which, in this part of its course, are richly ornamented with finely varied and beautifully picturesque scenery. The land, which is mostly enclosed and in a good state of cultivation, usually produces good crops of corn. Blaen Dyfryn, the property of John Lloyd Davies, Esq., to whom it passed by marriage with Miss Price, niece of the late proprietor, is pleasantly situated within this parish. The living is a discharged rectory, with that of Hênllan annexed, in the archdeaconry of Cardigan, and diocese of St.David's, rated in the king's books at £5.6.8., endowed with £200 royal bounty, and in the patronage of the Bishop of St. David's. The church, dedicated to St. David, is a small plain building, occupying a remarkable situation above a bold reach of the river. Near it is a circular mount, surrounded by a moat, called Castell Pistog, which is said to have been the site of a mansion anciently belonging to a family of that name, who were proprietors of the lordship. The average annual assessment for the support of the poor is £32.6." [From Samuel Lewis's A Topographical Dictionary of Wales 1833]
