A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Llangattock nigh Usk from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"LLANGATTOCK-NIGH-USK, a parish in Abergavenny [registration] district, Monmouth[shire]; on the river Usk, and on the Hereford, Abergavenny, and Newport railway, 3 ½ miles SSE of Abergavenny. Post town: Abergavenny. Acres: 1,613. Real property: £2,229. Population in 1851: 178; in 1861: 252. Houses: 44. The property is subdivided. Llangattock House is a chief residence. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Llandaff. Value: £274. Patron: the Earl of Abergavenny. The church is a primitive structure, in tolerable condition; and contains monuments of the Evanses. Charities, £4."

The parish was also known as Llangattock Juxta Usk or Llangatwg Dyffryn Wysg. It includes a village named Penpergwm which was a station on the railway.

In 1935, in a move to reduce the number of parishes within Abergavenny Rural District, Llangattock nigh Usk was absorbed into the civil parish of Llanover Fawr.
