When exploring Milford Haven's history, it is important to be aware of these points...
The name Milford Haven may not relate to Milford Haven
The town of Milford Haven was named after the Milford Haven waterway. This estuary links Saint Georges Channel (Dale) to the Cleddau Rivers (near Cleddau Bridge.) Many references to the name (especially very early maps and modern nautical documents,) use Milford Haven to identify the estuary.
Worlwide (especially in USA/Canada) there are several other towns/cities with the name Milford Haven. Some of these are located on waterways with similar names.
2 Milford Haven towns & 2 Milford Haven ports on 1 Milford Haven waterway
When Brunel's railway linked England to America via Milford Haven waterway's transatlantic shipping services, the railway terminus was constructed in the less well known village of Neyland. The village of Neyland was then renamed and became Milford Haven. Having two major towns and two large ports, all called Milford Haven, was very confusing and Neyland eventually reverted back to it's original name.
Milford Haven is a Fictional Place
The renowned author Marla Purl, wrote a series of books describing a fictional town called Milford Haven. Some of the key details in her storylines bare remarkable similarities to the real history of our town.
