Why Jemima?

Britain was last invaded on 22nd February 1797, when fourteen hundred members of the French Revolutionary Army landed in Carregwastad bay near Fishguard.


The French moved inland the following morning and occupied strong defensive positions on high rocky ground. The British, although outnumbered, decided to attack, with many Fishguard locals volunteering to fight. Notable among these was Jemima Nicholas who single-handedly took twelve French soldiers prisoner in St Mary’s Church armed only with a pitchfork……….and that’s why we’re called Jemima!
