This is my third time to send this email. I have someone living in a
place or parish called Llanvenith. I presume it to be near the Parish
of Pencarreg in Carmarthenshire but I'm not certain in which county this
I've tried to spell it Llanfenith but I still can't find it. Can
someone help me? What is the modern name for this place?
I think the place you are seeking is Llanfynydd, whose pronunciation is
somewhat like your "Llanvenith".
Llanfynydd is a village and a parish. Part of the parish is only 4 miles
from Pencarreg, separated by the parish of Llansawel.
There are photos of Llanfynydd permanently displayed as a Special
Feature on the Images of Wales section of my website -
