How Old Is Tir Y Berth? - a Memory of Tir-y-berth.

I've looked at various Victorian maps but Tir-y-Berth was just fields. Does anyone know when it was first developed? My great-grandmother, Mary Ann Fox was born either here or in Treherbert in 1883 (as Meyrick). I'm guessing these two place-names sound similar - hence the confusion. My mother, Audrey Patricia and her parents Bill and Elizabeth Whittingham also lived in Tir-y-Berth for a while in the 1930s, at a shop in Horner Street (now a private residence).
