Newton-Nottage - From 'A Topographical Dictionary of Wales' (1849)
NEWTON-NOTTAGE, a parish, comprising the hamlets of Newton and Nottage, in the union of Bridgend and Cowbridge, hundred of Newcastle, county of Glamorgan, South Wales, 4� miles (W. S. W.) from Bridgend; containing 792 inhabitants, of whom 325 are in the hamlet of Newton. The parish is situated on the shore of the Bristol Channel, and comprises a tract of which a considerable portion is uninclosed and uncultivated. The sea has encroached greatly on the shore; and much land in the parish, which within the recollection of persons still living or but lately deceased formed excellent pasturage for sheep, is now covered with sand. Ironstone is procured to a limited extent on Newton Down, and both lead-ore and manganese have been found in the white limestone of the parish; a facility of conveyance, and of communication with the limestone and freestone quarries, and the other mines in this part of the county, is afforded by the Llynvi railway. This railway commences at the harbour of Porthcawl, in the parish, and proceeds by Nottage village to North and South Cornelly, and Pyle, whence it pursues an eastern course to the iron-works at Cevn Cribwr, where it is joined by the Bridgend railway. Then, taking a northern direction in a line parallel with the western bank of the river Llynvi, it passes the village of Llangonoyd, and, crossing the river at Typhylly Chwyth, terminates at Blaen-Llynvi, extending in the whole of its main course a distance of seventeen miles. An act of parliament was lately passed for its conversion from a tramroad into a locomotive line. From Newton Down may be obtained a fine view of Penllyne Castle, near Cowbridge, to the east; and to the west over Swansea bay, the whitewashed habitations about Oystermouth, and the country adjacent to Swansea. The decayed bathing-village of Newton, which is agreeably situated on a knoll near the sea-shore, is undergoing considerable improvement; it has a good beach, and Sir J. Guest, who lately purchased the property, has commenced building some new houses.

The living is a rectory, rated in the king's books at �17. 4. 7., and in the patronage of the Proprietors of the Manor; present net income, �375. The church, dedicated to St. John the Baptist, is an ancient and venerable structure, displaying portions in the successive styles of English architecture, with a massive square tower; the pulpit appears to have been formed out of one solid stone, and is rudely carved with a representation of the Scourging of our Saviour: the number of sittings has been enlarged by the erection of a gallery, in which are forty sittings free. There are places of worship for dissenters, and four Sunday schools, one of which is connected with the Church. A new day school, sanctioned by the Board of Education, was finished in 1848. No public charities now remain; a bequest of �50 by Mary Lougher, in 1731, and a similar one of �10 by Alexander Pryce or Rees, prior to 1786, having been misapplied, and partly to his own use, by one of the parish officers. Some traces of the Julia Strata Maritima may be discerned on Newton Down, a little to the left of the turnpike-road, in its course towards Nidum (Neath). Near the church is a curious well, noticed by Camden as ebbing and flowing in opposition to the tide, being full at low water and empty at high water: various conjectures have been formed to account for this phenomenon, which may be satisfactorily explained on the principle of a natural syphon.�See Porthcawl, and Nottage.

Nottage - From 'A Topographical Dictionary of Wales' (1849)
NOTTAGE, a township, in the parish of Newton-Nottage, union of Bridgend and Cowbridge, hundred of Newcastle, county of Glamorgan, South Wales, 5 miles (W. by S.) from Bridgend; containing 467 inhabitants. It is bounded on the west by the sea; and the Llynvi railway passes close to the village, on the east. At Ty Mawr, or "the great house," which has been restored by Mr. Knight, of Neath, it is said that Ann Boleyn resided for a short time.
