Until the late 1860s Cefnllys parish was a large rural parish without even a village. At this time most of the people of the parish would have been involved in farming or working on the land in some way. In the 1860s however everything changed when a rough wet common in the parish was enclosed and the town of Llandrindod Wells built on it!
The government report which published the figures for the 1871 census said that the population had increases due to the building of houses and cottages.
