<RISW GGF2> The Bennett Pedigree Book, c.1606-1700

<RISW GGF 2>A collection of pedigrees relating to Glamorgan and Gower families with a memorandum by George Grant Francis found at the beginning of the volume. This volume is made up of parts of several collections of pedigrees, charters, surveys and other materials relating to the history of Glamorgan and Gower. The original compilers have not been discovered but the name and initials of William Bennett occur several times. Francis suspected that William Bennett was linked to one of the families of that name resident in the western part of the lordship of Gower. The sheets were in a dilapidated state when they came into the hands of Francis. The sheets were mounted and bound by Francis (or under his instruction). The following has been catalogued using the contents page to the volume. The volume contains an index of all names mentioned within the sheets with page numbers for easy access. The documents in this volume are described in detail in the following pages c.1606-1700
