Burry Port is a small picturesque town situated on the south-west coast of Wales. This site aims to give both local residents and visitors to the town an insight into the history of Burry Port and Pembrey. The town is probably best known for the 1928 transatlantic flight by Amelia Earhart. Being the first woman ever to fly across the Atlantic, she landed at Burry Port on June 18th in the seaplane “Friendship”. In spite of the closure, in 1877, of the Burry Port Smelting Companys Lead & Silver Works, the scale of production in the other local industries and the maritime coal-export trade remained very high.
There was a significant surge in pupil attendance at school after the introduction of the 1880 Education Act, which made it compulsory for all children from five to ten years of age to attend school. Parents, thereafter, were made responsible for their childrens attendance at school, and were liable to be prosecuted if their children failed to attend. School attendance had also been helped by the earlier 1876 Education Act, which made it illegal to employ children under ten years of age. The ages of children attending the local schools recorded on this census range from two to eighteen years. The high number of children attending the parish schools reflected the commonly large families of the late 19th century. Most of the parents who cane to settle in this parish were fairly young, and many, like the local parents, had from four to seven children attending the schools. Well over a hundred of the Burry Port scholars attended the two Pembrey schools. Benjamin Williams, Tyisha (Ty Ishaf), Colby Road, 64 years, is noted on the 1881 census as Registrar & Farmer of 35 acres, employing 2 labourers. He was in charge of census returns for Pembrey from 1841, when he was 24 years of age. In Kellys Directory, of August 1895, he is recorded as “Registrar of births, deaths and marriages for Kidwelly and Pembrey subdistrict.” He was, therefore, an active registrar at 78 years of age. Early census divisions, including 1881, do not coincide with present political areas.
Lifeboats have been guarding the dangerous Burry Estuary, which includes Carmarthen Bay eastward to Loughor together with the north coastline of the Gower Peninsula since 1852. The first Lifeboat was at Llanelly. It was provided by the Shipwrecked Fishermen and Mariners Benevolent Society. The boat was 26 feet long by 6 feet 4ins. Pulled by 8 oars double banked. In 1854 the SFMBS handed over the boat to the newly named RNLI. The crews of this Lifeboat did sterling work over the next nine years including rescues at the extraordinary Broughton Bay disaster in 1868. A subsequent lifeboat was made of iron. This boat served from 1869 to 1871. The Burry Estuary is one of the windiest areas in Britain and the majority of ship wrecks during the 19th Century occurred within its western approaches. The Llanelly Lifeboat was too far eastward to be effective. It was decided to build a new lifeboat house at Pembrey. From November 1863 the Pembrey boat was stationed close to the old Pembrey harbour. Subsequent storms but the boathouse in jeopardy. It was then decided to build a second boathouse in a plantation nearer to the village of Pembrey. This boathouse was furnished with a new lifeboat named Stanton Meyrick of Pimlico. She was 32 feet long and had ten oars plus a coxswain. This boat was in service from 1871 to October 1886. Over this period it was found that windblown sand constantly blocked the main doors and this boathouse was abandoned in October 1886.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
