April A-Z Challenge – H is for Haverfordwest
H is for HAVERFORDWEST, a town in Pembrokeshire, Wales. This is the city where father’s maternal ancestors, the TAYLOR family originated from. After their marriage in 1839, JOHN TAYLOR & MARTHA LLOYD lived in City Road, in the Parish of St. Thomas.
At the time of her death, John TAYLOR’s mother MARY DAVIES, who was a widow, lived in the Parish of St. Martin, Haverfordwest.
Today Haverfordwest is the major city of the county of Pembrokeshire. It is a bustling market town as it has been for many centuries. Haverfordwest Castle sits on a hill, overlooking the city, as if protecting it still, as it surely did in medieval times. It looks very battle scarred and damaged, making me think I would love to find out more about the history and what went on in Haverfordwest in earlier times.
