Carmarthenshire, as one of the counties of Wales, were fixed in 1536 by Henry VIII’s Act of Union and, save for a modification in 1542 have not been altered since. They enclose the largest county area in the Principality, its extent being computed at 588,472 acres. In a great measure, the boundaries are natural; the Teifi on the north, the Cuch on the north-west, and the Loughor on the south-east are well defined barriers, and, though the line from Lampeter to Ammanford has not the same simplicity, it re-presents very ancient tribal limits. The south-western border, on the other hand, is highly artificial; its eccentricities are not to be explained by physical conditions, nor yet by deep-rooted tribal habits, but by feudal arrangements entered into at the close of the middle ages.
At some period previous to the Norman Conquest, Ystrad Tywi properly so called was separated into Y Cantref Mawr and Y Cantref Bychan, i.e. the Great and the Little Cantref, two names which point clearly to an original unity broken up for convenience of administration The course of the river Towy, from Ystrad Ffin to Abergwili, was adopted as the dividing line, a boundary which could cause no confusion or dispute, save for the vagaries of a stream which, flowing over alluvial flats, was liable without warning to change its bed in time of flood. Cantref Mawr (the article was usually dropped) answered well to its name; it stood high among the cantrefs of Wales, both in its area and in the number of its commotes; Cantref Bychan was only small by comparison with its neighbour, and stretched along the south bank of the Towy for some forty miles.. Both names appear in the oldest portions of the Liber Landavensis and the evidence is that both were well established and generally known in the reign of Henry 1st.
In addition to these two cantrefs, Ystrad Tywi was generally assigned a third. Had we only the testimony of the lists upon which to depend, we might suspect an artificial arrangement, made by the compilers for their convenience. But, in two passages in the oldest portion of the Mabinogion, Ystrad Tywi is said to contain three cantrefs, so that the association of a third district with the Great and the Little Cantref must be regarded as of long standing. Suspicion, however, rests upon its name, as given in two of the lists, viz., Cantref Eginog. This form is nowhere else to be found, and certainly had no popular currency. The names of the commotes into which this cantref was divided were undoubtedly well known, as will be shown later, from very early times; hence it would appear as if Cydweli, Carnwyllion, and Gower had been, at some time or another, combined to make up a cantref which was not an ancient and recognised division of the country. Examples of this process can be seen in Powys, where the commote is often the true local unit, while the cantref is but a geographer’s convention.
About the time of the Norman Conquest, Cantref Mawr was divided into the seven commotes of Mallaen, Caeo, Maenor Deilo, Cetheiniog, Widigada, Mabelfyw, and Mabudrud. Cantref Bychan was divided into three commotes, viz., Hirfryn, Perfedd, and Is Cennen. Clear evidence is afforded by the second and the third of these names that the commote was in this area a new unit, formed by the breaking up of the old. The western limb of Carmarthenshire belonged to the ancient kingdom of Dyfed. One of the seven cantrefs of Dyfed was Emlyn , this was split into two lordships by Henry VIII and the Carmarthenshire part [ as opposed to Pembrokeshire ] comprised Emlyn Uch Cuch made up of the parishes of Penboyr, Llangeler and Cenarth, plus the hamlet of Cwm Morgan in the parish of Cilrhedyn. A much larger cantref of Dyfed was Y Cantref Gwarthaf which contained eight commotes viz Elfed, Derllys, Penrhyn, Ystlwyf, Talacharn, Amgoed, Peulininiog and Elfelffre, all of which except the last are now in Carmarthenshire.
