In response to Pat's comments on nicknames in Haverfordwest I looked up this
list (below) in Douglas James' "The Town and County of Haverfordwest" I
expect other local histories have similar lists although I don't think in
the present day laws against derogatory comments and racist remarks they
would be acceptable.
One other comment on the title of his book - Haverfordwest was designated a
County in itself and had a separate member of Parliament until about 1884 or
