Article in WWHR Vol.IX on Pembrokeshire Quakers:
"At the end of the 17th Century there were meetings with or without houses at
Haverfordwest, Redstone, Puncheston, Jamestown (near Manorbier), Newport and St. Davids.
Regular meetings were discontinued at Puncheston in 1725, at Newport in 1726, at St.
Davids in 1732, at Redstone in 1766, and at Jamestown in 1777.
"The burial ground for the Redstone district is at Trewern, half-way between
Llanddewi Velfrey and Whitland; that for the Puncheston district at Martel, about half a
mile east of Little Newcastle; and that for the Haverfordwest district, at the Mount,
Portfield. A good many of the early friends were buried at West Hook, though I do not know
why the place was chosen, or whether the yard is still preserved."
I doubt that there would be much, if anything to see at any of these Burial Grounds. At
some point the Friends passed a resolution that there would be no monuments erected, and
in several places the existing monuments were removed.

Subject: [Dyfed] Quaker burial ground Haverfordwest
Not sure if my requests are getting through so I'm trying again!
Does anyone know anything about a Quaker burial ground near Haverfordwest? It is dated
1661 but is in a state of extreme disrepair. Does anyone know who might be responsible for
its maintainance or anything else about it?
