1901 Kelly's Directory:

"LLANVETHERINE is a parish and village on the road from Abergavenny to Ross, and bounded on the east by the river Trothy, 5 miles north-east from Abergavenny station on the Great Western railway and 21 north-east from Newport, in the Northern division of the county, hundred, petty sessional division, union and county court district of Abergavenny, rural deanery of Abergavenny, archdeaconry of Monmouth and diocese of Llandaff.

The church of St. James the Elder is a small but ancient building of stone in the 14th century style, consisting of chancel, nave, south porch and an embattled western tower containing 2 bells. The church was partially restored in 1866 and completed in 1872, at the expense of the Rev. Francis Church Steel, M.A., late rector, and in 1898 the interior was reseated in oak and an oak pulpit erected. There are 200 sittings. In the churchyard is an ancient monument, regarded as the tomb of Saint Veterinus, from whom the name of the parish is derived. The register dates from the year 1693. "
