The Owen Manuscript

The Owen MSS consist of eighty volumes, all except one being either in folio or quarto, most of them, indeed, being ordinary commercial account books and ledgers. In these volumes Mr Owen has drawn or written in a particulary neat hand material for local history which may be roughly grouped under five headings.
  1. Monumentail inscriptions
  2. Parish registers
  3. Genealogical memoranda
  4. Architecture and archaelogy
  5. Miscellaneous historical notes
