    MS 5.6 = Ph. 12126
    WELSH PEDIGREES, c. 1687
    A large and well-organised collection of Welsh and notably Glamorgan pedigrees arranged under the ‘fifteen tribes’ followed by the advenae of Glamorgan, evidently compiled by or for Francis Gwyn of Llansannor (who married the heiress of Ford Abbey, Devon, in 1690), see pp. 326, 627. Compiled before 1667–8, see pp. 327, 493. The main part of the MS is evidently a page for page copy of an exemplar in handsome italic script of which one leaf survives loose after p. 116. [Is this David Edwardes? cf. THSC (1976), p. 118]. Includes painted arms. Index on pp. 617–21.

    628 pp. Modern half-leather. ‘John Francis Gwyn 1819’ on p. 20. ‘MSS of Ford Abbey 236’ in TP’s hand on flyleaf.
