History

Substantial farmhouse of earlier to mid C19 ornamental character. Alleston was part of the Orielton estate, offered for sale 1839, when it was called a 'genteel modern built house and farm' which suggests that the house dates from the 1830s. It is marked on the 1841 tithe map as still owned by the Orielton estate, occupied by Henry Phelps with 266 acres. It was bought with Underdown and the Grove Quarry by William Owen, the architect, of Haverfordwest. The site is recorded as Aylwardiston in 1382, was owned occupied by the Webb family, but leased to Sir John Carew in 1605. Edward Webb, gent., was there in 1609, Thomas Webb in 1637. In 1706 Francis, the grandson of Henry Davies of Bangeston was at Alleston. Thomas Poyer of Alleston is recorded later in the C18. The house remained part of the Owen of Withybush estate to the early C20.
The present house is a hipped square house with centre chimney and wide sashes of late Georgian type. the gables with bargeboards over the upper windows and doorcase have a Victorian look. Added later C19 gable on left side with similar bargeboards. The type of bargeboards also appeared on Warreston, a gentry house burnt in 1956.
