The origin of the name 'Treboeth'

One translation is 'Hot town' or 'Burnt home-stead'.  It may indicate that a particular place was cleared by burning or even destroyed by fire. 

Another version is that Treboeth is a corruption of 'Trebwthyn' or 'Tribwythyn' - three cottages.  Two of the cottages disappeared long ago, but the third is still there in Llanfyfelach Road, named 'Y Bwthyn Seren Fore', Morning Star Cottage and takes its name from the building attached to it, which was once the 'Morning Star' public house.  It is now an impressive dwelling.

Fifty years ago (1940s) Trboeth was still a small village surrounded by green fields of Penlan Farm and Clase.
