Administrative / Biographical History

The medieval lordship of Gower covered the area of Gower as well as the area lying between the rivers Tawe and Llwchwr and extended more than 13 miles north of Swansea to the rivers Twrch and Amman. Gower was a marcher lordship which meant it that its lord had royal rights and privileges within its boundaries and that those rights and privileges were almost independent of the king.
