Leland writes the bishop of St Davids 'hath a place'.

in the village of Trêvin, or Trêvdyn, a manor belonging to the Bishop of St. David's, where was once an episcopal palace, said to have been erected by Bishop Martin (Lewis)

Gatehouse Comments

On the coastal road from St Davids. Clearly a useful stopover manor but the natural of the bishops residence is unclear. The lack of remains and relatively early disappearance suggest a mainly timber structure.
