Scope and content

One of two albums of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century (see also NLW MS 11982D), containing press cuttings, printed matter, and some manuscript material compiled probably by a member of the family of Ffoulkes of Eriviatt, Henllan, Denbighshire.
The press cuttings include obituaries of Sir Frederick Gore Ouseley, canon of Hereford Cathedral, 1889, Edmund Salusbury Ffoulkes, vicar of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford, 1894, and Canon Howell Evans, vicar of Rhyl, 1892; accounts of the Ober-ammergau Passion Play, 1870, 1880, 1890; and articles on The Welsh Land Commission, [1894], Welsh Disestablishment, 1893, 'Discovery of Celtic Antiquities in Derbyshire', 1901, and 'New Church Chancel at Buckley', 1901. Among the printed items are hymns to be sung at the funeral of Henry Wynne Ffoulkes, Odd Rode, 1904, a memoir of Charles Butler Clough, M.A., dean and chancellor of St. Asaph, 1860, order of service at the opening of a new organ at Whittington, [1884], the charge of cruelty to a horse against Miss Frances Power Cobbe and her coachman David Evans heard at Barmouth Petty Sessions, 1902, verses to Peirce Wynne Yorke in honour of his attaining his majority, 1847, and a Form of Intercession with Almighty God on behalf of Her Majesty's Naval and Military Forces now in South Africa (marked with the rubber stamp of St. Thomas’s Church, Rhyl), 1900. The manuscript material includes verses entitled 'Mary's Ghost. A pathetic Ballad', 'Miss Elizabeth Fortescue in Italy' by T. V., 1834, and 'To some Young Ladies going to spend the Spring & Summer at Putney Heath', and a copy of the memorial inscription of Emma, fourth daughter of Capt.
