History

LLANDEVEYSON (LLAN-DYFEISANT), a parish, in the union of LLANDILO-VAWR, lower division of the hundred of CAYO, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES; comprising part of the market and post-town of Llandilo-Vawr, on the eastern boundary of it. It is situated on the river Towy: the lands, which are tolerably fertile, are, with the exception of a very small portion, inclosed. A very considerable portion of this parish is occupied by Newton Park, the property of Lord Dynevor, which comprehends within its limits, besides his lordship's modern residence, the site and venerable ruins of Dynevor Castle. The church is a small edifice, situated within the limits of Newton Park, and is supposed to have been built on the site of a Roman temple, upon the foundation of which its northern angle is said to rest.[1]
