History

Also spelled Llanllwchairn, Llanllwchaern, Llanychaearn, and Llanychaiarn.

"LLANLLWCHAIRN (LLAN - LLWCHAIARN), a parish in the lower division of the hundred of MOYTHEN, county of CARDIGAN, SOUTH WALES, 17 miles (N. W. by W.) from Lampeter, containing 1178 inhabitants. This parish, which is situated on the shore of Cardigan bay, derives its name from the dedication of its church and, from its advantageous maritime position, has risen into some degree of notice, and is rapidly increasing in population and importance. Soles, turbot, and oysters are found in great abundance and of superior quality on this part of the coast, and a herring fishery might be advantageously established here, if an adequate demand existed. The trade of the place has already increased so much as to give rise to the establishment of the small port of New Quay (described under its own head), which has already attained a considerable degree of celebrity, and maintains a regular intercourse with Bristol. The living is a discharged rectory, in the archdeaconry of Cardigan, and diocese of St. David's, rated in the king's books at £6.7.8 1/2., and in the patronage of the Bishop of St. David's. The church, dedicated to St. Llwchaiarn is an ancient edifice, consisting of a nave and chancel, which are separated by a pointed arch : the font, which is of great antiquity, is square, and ornamented at each angle with a human head ; and in the churchyard are the remains of a stone cross. There are places of worship for Independents and Calvinistic and Wesleyan Methodists.A small Sunday school for the gratuitous instruction of the poor is supported by subscription. There are some trifling vestiges of an ancient earthwork, called Pencastell, in this parish. The poor are supported by an average annual expenditure amounting to £338.1."
[From Samuel Lewis's A Topographical Dictionary of Wales 1833]
