Notesthat part of the Lordship of Gower that lay below (i.e. to the south and west of) the wood that stretched from Swansea to Loughor. The division may have predated the conquest. Gower Subboscus contained the majority of the ‘knight’s fee’ manors, but also contained an area where the farms were held directly from the Lord of Gower, originally mostly by Welsh tenures. This area, which included Three Crosses, Killay and the Gowerton area in the parishes of Swansea, Llanrhidian, Loughor and Bishopston, was known as Parcel Iscoed, and formed a detached portion of Llangyfelach Hundred [see West Glam Archive Service]
