Scope and content

Rentals and related papers for the of the Abertanat estate, 1711-1803, [c. 1949]; the Cemais estate, between 1747 and 1824; the Penrhos estate, 1824-1833; and the three combined Montgomeryshire estates, 1803-1846. The portions of the Abertanat estate lying in Llanyblodwel, Oswestry, Llanymynech and Llansanffraid-ym-Mechain do not feature in rentals later than 1746, and in 1766 they passed to another branch of the family under the terms of Margaret Godolphin's will. The remaining part of the estate, lying in Montgomeryshire, was called Broniarth. The Abertanat (Broniarth) rentals exhibit a regularity of format, with separate columns for arrears, land tax and expenses for repairs. The Cemais rentals show that John Owen was aready in possession by 1786. By the time of the 1801 rental he also owned the Montgmeryshire portion of Abertanat in Broniarth, inherited from his cousin, Robert Godolphin Owen (died 1792).
