Wales Information

Historical Description

The principality of Wales is bounded on the west and north by the Irish Sea; on the east by Cheshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, and Monmouthshire; and on the south by the river Severn and the Bristol Channel. It is in length about 150 miles from north to south, and in breadth from 50 to 80 miles; comprehending an area of 8, 125 square statute miles, equal to 5, 200, 000 acres of land. It appears that 900, 000 acres are arable, and 2, 600, 000 in pasturage, leaving 1, 700, 000 acres in a state of waste, of which quantity about 700, 000 are capable of being brought into a state of cultivation.

Wales was long an independent and separate sovereignty from England, and it is strongly marked out by Nature as a detached district, being an almost continued range of mountains more or less wild and lofty, and intersected by vallies more or less extensive and fertile. The language, manners, and customs, are also widely different from those of England.

The ancient internal dimensions of Wales have been contracted, by taking from it the whole county of Monmouth, and a part of several of the adjacent English counties. In point of population and fertility, the district of South Wales has by far the superiority over the North; and, although the whole is very mountainous, its produce is fully sufficient for its inhabitants.

Those counties bordering on the sea coast have a mild climate, but are very wet; and the interior parts have the usual sharpness of other mountainous regions. The cattle in general are very small, but the flesh is particularly good, and provisions are tolerably reasonable. Numbers of goats are wild among the mountains.

Name and Ancient History

The inhabitants of Wales are the remains of a people who originally overspread the whole island; and when subdued by the Romans, the names of their principal subdivisions were the Silures, Dimetii, and Ordovices; names still existing for the same districts to which they were applied in the Roman topography of the country ; but the patronymic appellation by which the Welsh have always called themselves is the Cymry. The superior divisions of Wales, according to its laws and history, were Deheubarth, Gwynedd, and Powys, whether governed by one supreme prince, or by several. Llewelyn ap Gryffyth was the last prince who exerted himself for the independence of Wales ; he was subdued by Edward I. in the year 1283, and fell in the field of battle. From that time Wales has been annexed to the English crown, but the union was not complete till the reign of Henry the Eighth, when the government and laws were formed agreeably to those of England.

Topography of Great Britain, written: 1802-29 by George Alexander Cooke

Wales is bounded on all sides with the Sea, except on the East, where it is separated from England by the River Dee, and a line drawn to the River Wie.

Division

This Countrey is divided into 13 Shires, wherein are some fair Cities, but divers great Towns.

Fertility

The Soyl of this Countrey, especially that which joyneth toward the Sea, is most fertil both for Man and Beast; but for the major part it is more barren, and less fruitfull.

Natures of the People

The Men are of a faithfull carriage, one especially towards another in a strange Countrey, and to Strangers in their own. They are of a temper much inclining to Choler, being quickly moved, and soon appeased, being of all angers the best and noblest.
