Premises are the former municipality of Prendergast,[5] Albert Town and the Withybush area ( apartments, shopping centres, hospitals, airports and exhibition grounds). The Haverfordwest has taken a strategical location from ancient Rome until the opening of the Cleddau Bridge (1975), as it is the deepest accessible point of the western Cleddau.

Pembrokeshire is an important intersection of the roads between Milford Haven, Pembroke Dock, Fishguard and St David's due to its location at the Western Cleddau dell. Most of the city, consisting of the old St. Mary, St. Martin and St. Thomas rectories, is on the right banks of the western banks of the canal.

Situated on the northerly foothills, the fortress and the neighbouring village make up the centre of the municipality of St. Martin. The city has expanded from these central areas mainly along the mountain ranges. Beside the four old church parishes, the ruins of an Auguste priorate can be seen on the south outskirts of the city.

It has been an English-speaking city for hundreds of years (South Pembrokeshire is known as Little England Beyond Wales), but as the city fairs handled the goods of Welsh peasants in the northern and eastern parts, there has always been a significant Welsh impact. Prendergast seems to have emerged as a non-university Welsh hostel, from the time when all farming commerce had to go through the district, and the fearsome Normans before the demolition of Anglo-Norman rule in 1136 attempted to stop Welsh people carrying weapons from penetrating the ramparts after dark.

have claimed that there is no documented or archeological proof of colonisation of this site before the twelfth centuries, when the first Norman architectural palace was built. However, archeological findings in Pembrokeshire suggest otherwise. Numerous Iron Age and ancient finds of coins and artifacts as well as Dyfed Archeological Trust digs under the leadership of Heather James at Carmarthen (Maridunum) in the 1980' suggest significant Latin penetrability in this western part of Wales.

1992 the air photograph identifies a route leading to Poyston Cross via Wiston westwards from Carmarthen and past Wiston, increasing the potential for strongholds at Whitland and Haverfordwest passages. Haverfordwest's strategical location, with its protective cliff that overlooks the deepest removable point on Cleddau W, and is open to maritime transport, would have necessitated a probably humble level of Rom ance as of the 1 st centuries A.D. in order to secure the supply of the coastline.

In The History of Pembrokeshire (published 1909) James Phillips notes a find of ancient gold coinage at Haverfordwest, the oldest dating of which is a Baldrian and the last a Claudius Gothicus. Philips asserted that the pre-Norman name of Haverfordwest was Caer Alun, so called after Emperor Maximus (Macsim Gwledig). It is not stated where it came from, but Cambro-Briton in 1822 also noted that Maximus, the last Emperor of Great Britain, a man who shared the Empire with Theodosius I for some period of times when he withdrew from Great Britain a number of peaceful Roman-British villages, among them Southampton, Chichester, Old Sarum near Salisbury, Carmarthen (Caerfyrddin) and Haverforest (Caer Alun), the citizen, Maximus, the last Emperor of Great Britain to share the Empire with Theodosius I., who withdrew from Great Britain a number of other peaceful Roman-British villages, among them Southampton, Chichester, Old Sarum near Salisbury, Carmarthen (Caerfyrddin) and Haverforest (Caer Alun).

Philips claimed that the name actually given to the city was Caer Elen, in honor of his bride (the name was later changed to Caer Alun). Haverfordwest Castle's suggestion that it was established by Tancred, a Flemish Marcher Lord, is debatable. Gilbert de Clare was the Norman who built the palace in 1100.

The Constable of the palace is known to have been Itohert in 1207, he was the father of Richard Tancard, possibly a descendent of the first Tancred. Flanders' involvement, allegedly due to flooding in the Netherlands, was more likely to consist of Flanders soldiers stationed in the invasion force of William the Conqueror, who were rewarded for their share of William's victories with land in parts of northern Britain and Wales in the Gower, and Geraldus Cambrensis registered their involvement in hundreds of Roose in Pembrokeshire.

In Wiston, a Fleming, Wizo, who passed away in 1130, established a mote and courtyard fortifications, forerunners of the Steinburg, to protect against the Welsh warlords: the Flemish were allegedly disliked wherever they set up shop. In 1136 the Normans, who had already defeated 500 men in the Loughor battles, were again enlisted by lords from all over South Wales and lead by Robert Martin in Crug Mawr near Cardigan, attacking Owain Gwynedd and his troops.

In 1147, Wiston and the fort were overwhelmed by Hywel Sais, the lord's son Rhys. In his Polychronicus Ranulf Higden chronicles the Flamen as extinct in 1327 in Pembrokeshire, but in 1400 Flanders soldiers re-emerge when, at the command of Henry IV, they join an army of 1,500 British colonists who are marching just north of Pembrokeshire to strike the Owain forces at Glynd?r in Mynydd Hyddgen.

The Haverfordwest quickly expanded, first around the palace and St. Martin's Church (the village was known as Castletown) and then into the area of the main road. Immediately it became the capitol of the Hundred of Roose (part of Little England beyond Wales) and because of its central location it became the trading center of West Dyfed, which it has stayed until today.

It was a large city on a scale of that period, whose number of inhabitants was probably about 4,000-5,000. The city was named Country Corporator on April 30, 1479 by a statute of Edward, Prince of Wales, to support a counterfeiting initiative in community water. Sharing this difference only with Carmarthen and some cities in England, she stayed formally "The Town and County of Haverfordwest" until the district was abolished in 1974.

Like other large cities in Europe, Haverfordwest was heavily affected by the Black Death in 1348, with both de-population (perhaps more than 50%) and trafficking declining. Much of the city was deserted, and it was not until the Tudor era that the city began to heal. By the end of the seventeenth century[11] the city was still considerably smaller than 1300.

The city was burnt down by the Owain Glyndwr ally in 1405, although Haverfordwest in its early days was less affected by such devastation than most cities in Wales. Consequently, there were major conflicts and the site underwent five changes of ownership. This was followed by a phase of economic stasis in which the comparable state of the city decreased.
