USK is a market town and ancient borough, and head of a petty sessional division, parish and station on the Great Western railway, 157 miles north-west from London, 11 north-east from Newport, 13 south-west from Monmouth and 7 north-east from Pontypool, in the Southern division of the county, hundred of Usk, union of Pontypool, rural deanery of Usk (western division), archdeaconry of Monmouth and diocese of Llandaff. The town is seated on the banks of the river Usk, over which is a stone bridge of four arches, and is a place of remote antiquity, conjectured by some antiquaries to have been the "Burrium" of the Romans: the name Usk is derived from the Gaelic "Uisge", which signifies water: here are the remains of an ancient castle, standing on an eminence overlooking the town: this place was of great importance during the wars between the Welsh and the Anglo-Normans, and at a 1ater period in the time of the celebrated Owen Glendower: in the civil commotions between Charles I. and the Parliamentarians the castle was repeatedly assaulted, and, together with the town, partly demolished: the present remains of the castle are of considerable extent, and partially covered with ivy.

The town was incorporated by charters granted by Edmund de Mortimer, Earl of March and Ulster, Edward II. Edward IV. and succeeding monarchs.

The corporation consisted of a portreeve, recorder, two bailiffs, burgesses and four constables, but was abolished by the "Municipal Corporations Act, 1883" (46 and 47 Vict. Ch. 18).

Usk, in connection with the corporate towns of Newport and Monmouth, forms the Monmouth Parliamentary district, returning one member to Parliament. The town adopted the Local Government Act, 1858 (21 and 22 Vict. c. 98), December 3, 1872, and was governed by a Local Board, until the "Local Government Act, 1894" (56 and 57 Vict. c. 73), established the present Urban District Council. The town is paved, and lighted with gas by a company, formed in 1851, and supplied with water from works at Pandy, the property of the Usk Water Works Co.

The church of St. Mary is an ancient building of stone, with portions of Norman, Late Decorated and Perpendicular work: the building is of Anglo-Norman origin and was originally cruciform: the two arms of the cross or transepts have been destroyed, also the apse; it was formerly the church of a house of Benedictine nuns, founded here before 1174, by Sir A. de Clare; it now consists of chancel, nave, north aisle, two porches and a very large and handsome central embattled tower, with turret, and containing 7 bells; the nave, north aisle and tower formed part of the ancient conventual church, and the gateway of the nunnery also remains: the tower was restored in 1870, and in 1875 covered with slate instead of stone tile: in the church are several brasses, with inscriptions; a brass was Placed, 1890, in memory of Col. Roden, murdered in Corsica: there is also a monument, erected in 1822, to commemorate the benevolence of Mr. Roger Edwards, who, in the year 1621, founded the Free Grammar School here: there is a good choir screen and three memorial windows; there are 800 sittings, 300 being free: the churchyard contains many monuments, including several to the old family of Nicholl of Ham, designed by the late Sir Digby Wyatt R.A. to whom one has been erected in this churchyard by his brother: the churchyard is surrounded by trees and shrubs. The registers, including those of Gwehellog and Glascoed, date from 1742. The living is a vicarage, tithe rent-charge £285, average £226, net income £150, with 1 acre of glebe and residence, in the gift of Mrs. Addams-Williams, and held since 1892 by the Rev. Percy Louis Charles Nash B.A. of Hatfield Hall, Durham University, who is also vicar of Monkswood, and surrogate. On the southeast of the church stands the Priory, which was rebuilt some years since, and the existing remains preserved as far as practicable.

The Catholic chapel, Porth-y-Carne street, dedicated to St. Francis Xavier, was erected in 1847; it is in the Gothic style, and was erected from designs furnished by the late Mr. Hansom; at the back of the chapel is a small burial-ground; the chapel has 120 sittings: the Rev. Thomas Croft is the priest.

The Baptist chapel, Old Market street, having sittings for 300 persons, was erected in 1842. The Congregational chapel, Twyn, erected in 1862, at a cost of £1,200, is a stone building in the Gothic style, with a turret for one bell and has sittings for 400 persons. The Wesleyan chapel, Maryport street, erected in the year 1817, has sittings for 350 persons.

The Court House, adjoining the prison, in which the Quarter Sessions are now held and county business transacted, is a large and handsome edifice of stone, which was completed and opened on the 16th of October, 1877, at a cost exceeding £15,000.

The Town Hall, in which Quarter Sessions until the last few years were held, is now leased by the Duke of Beaufort, lord of the manor, to the portreeve and burgesses of the borough, and is used for public meetings and entertainments.

Her Majesty's prison, in Maryport street, is a large building of stone, arranged to hold about 200 prisoners on the separate system: there is a residence for the governor and the matron within the walls: the Rev. William Jones, of St. David's College, Lampeter, is chaplain.

There are two banks, a branch of the London and Provincial Bank Limited and the Capital and Counties Bank Limited. The market is held on Friday and a cattle market the first and third Monday in every month. Fairs are held on 10th April, wool fair on Friday before June 20th, 29th October, and Christmas fair on the 16th December. Wood turning and chair making is carried on. There is a Working Men's Conservative Club with about 90 members. The G Co. 4th Volunteer Battalion, South Wales Borderers, have head quarters in the town. At Llangeview, about 3 miles from Usk, are almshouses, founded by Roger Edwards, for 12 poor persons, each of whom receives £16 yearly; attached to the building is a chapel, with a chaplain appointed by the trustees: the chaplaincy has been held since 1890 by the Rev. John Jones M.A. vicar of Llangwm: a surgeon also is provided and paid by the trust, the present medical attendant being Peter Campbell esq.: the almshouses were re-built on their old site in 1826. The Duke of Beaufort, P.C., K.G. is lord of the manor and holds courts leet and baron once a year. The principal landowners are the Duke of Beaufort, the Rev. Sir J. Henry Fludyer bart. M.A. rector of Ayston, Rutland, George, Whitlock Nicholl esq. Major Edward Longworth Lister and Col. Francis McDonnell. The area of the whole parish is 4,956 acres; rateable value, £5,779; the population of the parish in 1891 was 1,417, which includes 73 in H.M. Prison; the population of the parliamentary borough was 1,447. The soil is silurian, and the subsoil, sand and gravel.

Parish Clerk, Philip Gunter.
