Name of creator
Percy J. Dobell and Son were antiquarian booksellers of Charing Cross Road, London, in the early 20th century. The material they acquired in the course of their work included documents relating to the history of Shropshire, Cheshire, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Montgomeryshire and Staffordshire.
The documents have been sorted and annotated by an unknown Shropshire antiquarian in the mid nineteenth century, and some may been part of a collection of an earlier antiquary.
Immediate source of acquisition or transfer
