Administrative / Biographical History

Within the county of Glamorgan there are 125 original parishes, known as 'ancient' parishes. During the 19th century and early 20th century, however, a number of new parishes were established to serve the needs of the county's growing population. These are known as 'modern' parishes and are supplemental to the ancient parishes. The majority of the parishes are within the diocese of Llandaff, served by Llandaff Cathedral. There are a small number, however, on the western and eastern extremities of Glamorgan which are within the dioceses of Swansea and Brecon (established 1923) and Monmouth (established 1921). Peterston-super-Montem is an ancient parish situated approximately six miles north east of Bridgend in the hundred of Newcastle.
