Archival History:
These records were deposited in the national Library of Wales by the vicar and churchwardens of St Michael's in 1909 or 1910 (see the National Library of Wales Annual Report, April 1909 to September 1910, pp 35-36). They were incorporated into the series of NLW MSS (3211D, 3212D, 3213-20B, 3221-47C, 3248E, 3249B, 3250E) but withdrawn from that series in September 1994, to be placed with the Aberystwyth parochial records.
