Disgrifiad o´r Safle Carregwastad Point is the landing-place of a French force, under the command of the American General Tate, in February 1797, in an attempted invasion of Britain. The force was between 1200 and 1500 and they landed at Carregwastad Point with orders to sack Bristol and start a revolution. It is believed that the invasion was unsuccessful. In 1897, a memorial stone, Carreg Goffa (nprn 309039), was erected nearby to commemorate the event.
In a field of Carn Gowil farm, called Parc y Ffrancwr, the body of one of the French soldiers of the revolution is said to have been buried. (Source: RCAHMW, Pembrokeshire Inventory, ii, no.592).
