History

Remains have been found over the years suggesting that Cadoxton, (under a different name), once was a Roman settlement of some description.Cadoxton derives from the 6th century Saint, Cadoc, and old english word "ton" meaning settlement. The Welsh language name 'Tregatwg' is a direct translation, although the Welsh word is very rarely used by residents of Cadoxton or Barry. The ruins of a chapel dedicated to Cadoc's disciple, Saint Baruc, can still be seen in Friars Road.

The village grew rapidly in the 19th and 20th century after the construction of Barry Docks in 1881. Cadoxton was swallowed up by Barry during this era.
