In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Llanfaches like this:

LLANVACHES, a parish in Newport district, Monmouth; near Went wood, 3½ miles N-by E of Magor r. station, and 6½ WSW of Chepstow. Post town, New.port, Monmouth. Acres, 2,108. Real property, £2,035. Pop. in 1851,291; in 1861,235. Houses, 60. The decrease of pop. was caused parity by the demolition of huts, owing to the sale of newly enclosed lands. ...

The property is much subdivided. A castle was anciently here, but has entirely disappeared. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Llandaff. Value, £194. Patron, Lord Tredegar. The church is dedicated to St. Dubricius, and is not very good. Charities, £10.
