Buying and selling property

Papers relating to the purchase and sale of property by the Tredegar estate in Breconshire. Most of the papers relate to the series of Breconshire sales of 1915.

Glamorgan collection books,

Collection books record money as it is received. This information is later transferred to the appropriate audit books, rent ledgers and other accounts. Consequently collecton books do not usually contain any unique information, and frequently do not survive as complete series.

Monmouthshire tithe administration records

The tithe records mainly relate to the Basaleg rectory tithe collection, 1743-1804, including the Basaleg hamlets of Dyffryn Lower, Dyffryn Higher, Graig and Rogerstone, and the parishes of Coedcernyw, Henllys, Risca and St Brides, and the Mynyddislwyn and Bedwellte tithe collection, 1790-1839. The two collections appear to have been merged in about 1862. -- The Basaleg, Mynyddislwyn and Bedwellty tithe rental for 1844 (formerly Tredegar MSS 465), is not found.

Woodland management records

Records relating to the management of the estate's woodlands, and the sale of trees and coppice for timber, cordwood, bark, poles and smart hoops. Although individual sales often related to woodlands within a single county, the woodlands appear to have been at least semi-detatched from the administration of the individual county-based estates, at least in the case of Monmouthshire and Glamorgan. All records relating specifically to the estate's woodlands have therefore been gathered together here for convenience.

Manor or borough of Llanfyllin,

The precincts or jurisdiction of the manor or borough leet up to Chas. I (the date of the grant of its governing charter) coincided with the area of the medieval borough of Llanfyllin, i.e. seemingly the old maerdref section of the commote of Mechain Uwchcoed, and was divided into four wards or townships. The charter made the borough co-extensive with the parish of Llanfyllin, and accordingly incorporated four additional rural townships, formerly owing suit to the Manor of Mechain Uwchcoed. These were (1) Bodyddon; (2) Globwll and Bachie; (3) Bodfoch, Garthgell and Brinelltine; and (4) Bodran, Nanthallen, Rhiwachor and Camen. Also the township of Rhiscog that continued to do suit to the leet of the manor of Nant y Meichiad. Thus from about 1672 to 1846 the jurisdiction of the leet coincided with the area of the parish of Llanfyllin, less the township of Rhiscog. The latter township, moreover, was subject to the jurisdiction of the quarter sessions of the borough of Llanfyllin. The leet courts were held at the local guild or town hall, 1662-1846, except Michaelmas 1776-Easter 1793 (pending the repair or reconstruction of the guildhall after a disastrous fire that took place between Easter and Michaelmas 1776), when the courts were held alternately at two local inns, the 'Black Boy' and the 'King and Crown', with one adjounment, Easter 1790, to the house of one Richard Davies 'at the sign of the Lion'. The records comprise court leet proceedings, 1653-1846 (including, estreat proceedings and alienation accounts, 1675-1835), and quarter and borough sessions, 1674-1820. For the court leets for Easter 1710, Easter 1714, Easter and Michaelmas 1716, Michaelmas 1718, Easter 1721, Easter 1729, Easter 1737, Easter 1739, Easter 1744 and Michaelmas 1750, see the borough and quarter sessions records. The reference MA 677 was not used. MA 510 and 511 (Easter), listed in the original schedule, are now missing.
