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

"LLANSAINTFRAED, a parish in Abergavenny [registration] district, Monmouth[shire]; on the river Usk, 2½ miles E of Penpergwm [railway] station, and 4½ SE of Abergavenny. Post town: Abergavenny. Acres: 289. Real property: £647. Population in 1851: 36; in 1861: 16. Houses: 4. The property is divided among a few. Llansaintfraed House is the seat of Mrs. Jones. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Llandaff. Value: £73. Patron: Mrs. Jones. The church resembles a barn, but is good."

The church is dedicated to St. Bridget, and there is a big house, now an hotel.

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