Juvenile Convictions                       Unit Price :- £10.00   + p&p
 GLA Quarter Sessions 1847 - 1880

This is a transcription of the Quarter Sessions Juvenile Convictions Records October 1847 – 1880 which are held under reference Q/S JC 1/1 to Q/S 14/113 at the Glamorgan Record Office in Cardiff. The CD contains an index of Surname, Forename, Age, Session, date of Hearing / Ref No. and details of the crime and punishment levied.

This is a most interesting recording of life in the mid 1800’s which shows how hard times were for some of the population with the theft of coal being the most recorded offence.

The Glamorgan Hearth Tax    Unit Price :- £12.00   + p&p

This CD is a scanned version of the book “The Glamorgan Hearth Tax Assessment of 1670”, edited by Elizabeth Parkinson and published by the South Wales Record Society in 1994.

Hearth Tax was introduced in 1662 and continued to be levied until 1689. The regular Assessments were supposed to record all householders in each parish and hamlet by name and the number of hearths for which they were liable to be taxed. While some poorer householders were exempt from the tax, their names were still to be included in the Assessment. Only two seemingly complete Assessments for Glamorgan have survived, of which this is one, and its value for family historians lies in its providing the names of the inhabitants of the county by parish at a date from which few parish registers have survived, as well as giving some insight into the social standing of named individuals.

It was prepared under the supervision of the Rev. W. Lewis of Pontypridd and published with the authority of the Monthly Assembly.

Our latest CD is a transcript of the admissions and discharges of “patients” to  Cardiff Workhouse in 1846 and 1847. These records were rescued from a flood, and were in very poor condition, photographed by the Glamorgan Record Office and then transcribed. So the result is a unique record of that time. The CD is in our usual Acrobat format which has been indexed and is fully searchable. 

The actual registers are :- Last Quarter 1846 and 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Quarter 1847
There is also a scanned copy of the 1868 Architects Building Proposals and plans
