INTRODUCTION

Francis Green (1854-1942) is primarily remembered as an antiquary, although it was as a lawyer that he began his career. (See Y Bywgraffiadur Cymreig, 1941-1950, p. 20). Two small collections of papers were donated to the National Library of Wales by Francis Green, one in 1926 (see National Library of Wales Annual Report for 1926, p. 11), and the other in 1935 (ibid., p. 32). The former donation, described as ‘certificates relating to land tax (end of the eighteenth century) in the Hundreds of Narberth and Castle, Pembrokeshire, and to properties in Caernarfonshire and Anglesey, belonging to Sir Hugh Owen, bart, an infant’, can clearly by identified as Nos 455-467 in the present schedule. The latter, described as ‘twenty five documents, mainly transcripts made by Thomas Lewis James, solicitor, Haverfordwest, relating to property in Haverfordwest, 1552-1866’, cannot be identified.
