History

Mill house to Prendergast Mill, late C18 or early C19, altered in 1920s by addition of right wing and possibly also the left one. Prendergast Mill, originally a cotton mill, became a paper mill in 1816, taken over by the Harvey family about 1824, who already had paper interests in Haverfordwest. Benjamin Harvey had been to Russia to help set up paper mills for the Tsar at Peterhof 1812-24. By 1830 he was the owner of the mill, and he also came to own Haverfordwest Mills and Millbank Mill in the town.The Tithe map of 1842 records Mill House as a holding of 7 acres (2.8 hectares) occupied by Benjamin Harvey and owned by Thomas Lloyd of Glanafon. The house was restored and rewindowed in later C20.
