EGLWYS-CUMMIN (EGLWYS-CYMMYN), a parish, in the union of NARBERTH, lower division of the hundred of DERRLYS, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 4 miles (S.W.) from St. Clear's, near the road to Haverfordwest. The parish is of great extent, and is situated at the south-western extremity of the county, on the borders of Pembrokeshire. A considerable portion of it is at present uncultivated. The church is dedicated to St. Margaret. A National school was established in 1832. There are some vestiges of an ancient military earthwork in a field, which, from that circumstance, has obtained the appelation of "Castell Park". There is a place of worship for Independents, with a Sunday school held in it.
