4.6
Nevern is a parish, community and small village in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. The community includes the settlements of Felindre Farchog, Monington, Moylgrove and Bayvil. Nevern lies in the valley of the River Nevern close to the Preseli Hills of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park 2mi east of Newport on the B4582 road.HistoryCastleThe castle was located on a spur of the hill 150 m northwest of the church. Little remains of it. It was the original headquarters of the Normans in the Marcher lordship of Cemais, built on the hill above the village by Robert fitz Martin around 1108. The castle was destroyed and Robert expelled during the rebellion of 1136. His son, William fitz Martin, regained both Nevern and Cemais via a marriage to a daughter of Rhys ap Gruffydd but was in turn driven out by Rhys about 1189. In 1197 William founded the nearby town of Newport, and transferred the headquarters of the Lordship to Newport castle. Nevern castle then ceased to be important.Nevern was a marcher borough. George Owen, in 1603, described it as one of nine Pembrokeshire "boroughs in decay".
