Policy papers,

A volume intitled 'Minute book', containing minutes of consultations of J.I.S. [probably John Ireland Storrar] with Lord Tredegar concerning estate affairs, including Belle Vue House, Newport (formerly used by the Belgian Refugees Committee), the letting of Newport Castle, athletics grounds at Cardiff and Newport, land for workmen's dwellings (garden city schemes), estate policy on the disposal of public houses, the presentation of land for burial grounds, chapels, churches, institutes and public parks, the presentation of Bedwellte Show Ground, stop-net fishery on the river Usk, work for the unemployed, the Bishop's Palace at Newport, Blackwood Miners' Institute & Library, and Messrs Cashmore's (ship breaker's yard?) on the river Ebbw.

Surveys, reports, inventories and maps,

Surveys and related materials relating to more than one estate or to unspecified estates, comprising surveys and rental surveys, 1730-1925 (AES 1), reports and valuations, 1899-1921 (AES 2), inventories of deeds and papers, 1738-1950 (AES 3), and maps and plans, 1782-1957 (AES 4).


Tredegar estate correspondence, arranged into copy letter books, 1869-1905 (AEC 1), two series of letters received, 1794-1939 (AEC 2-3), and a series of notices of assignments of leases, mortgages etc., 1900-1906 (AEC 4).

Repairs and improvements

The series contains records relating to repairs and improvements to agricultural and town properties in Monmouthshire and Glamorgan, including new roads and sewers in Newport and Cardiff.

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.
