History[edit | edit source]

LLANVIHANGEL-ABERCOWIN (LLAN-FIHANGEL-ABER-CYWYN), a parish, in the higher division of the hundred of DERLLYS, union and county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 9 miles (S.W. by W.) from Carmarthen. The parish derives its distingiuished appelation from its situation on the Cowin, near its confluence withm the Tâf and is intersected by the turnpike-road from Carmarthen to St. Clear's, from which it is distant about two miles and a half to the south-east. Within its limits is a village, forming a kind of suburb to St. Clear's, and it derives a considerable portion of traffic from the situation, and an air of cheerfulness and activity from the frequent passing of travellers. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, stands very near the confluence of the rivers, but is not distinguished by any architectural features. There are places of worship for Baptists and Welsh Calvinistic Methodists.[1]
