Administrative / Biographical History
The Dukes of Beaufort hold the title of Lord of Gower and Kilvey and still own significant estates in eastern Gower. The estate formerly consisted of lands in the parishes of Bishopston, Ilston, Llandeilo Talybont, Llangyfelach, Llanrhidian, Llansamlet, Loughor, Oystermouth, Penmaen, Pennard and Swansea. In 1837 a special Act of Parliament was passed to enable the Duke of Beaufort to sell a large part of his estate.
