Arnold le Boteler
He established the manor house and estate which is now known as Court Farm in Pembrey, during the reign of William the Conqueror. Earlier, he had acquired Dundryfan (Dunraven[disambiguation needed]) manor from his lord, Maurice de Londres, for services rendered and had built the first stone building on the site. Arnold's service to Maurice de Londres was the defence of Ogmore Castle while the lord defended against Welsh insurgence, led by Princess Gwenllian ferch Gruffydd, at Kidwelly Castle.
