17th Century

The Civil War.

In January 1644, a Parliamentary fleet was put into the Haven for shelter after landing a party of 200 seamen to try to recover the Parliamentary hold on the area.

The leader of the South Wales Royalists, Sir Francis Lloyd (1610-1669) and John Laugharne of St Brides with John Poyer of Pembroke with a company of men came to Steynton. The plan was to attack Pill Priory with a group of 26 musketeers. The attack was about to begin when a white flag was hoisted and a garrison of 250 men were captured.

In charge of the cannon at the fort war was John Barlow, a member of the family which acquired the Manor of Hubberston and Pill after the dissolution.
