The most substantial of the files relate to Bryn yr Afr, 1881-1908, Cwmbryno and Cefn Cwmbwryno, 1851-1886, Cwmsebon (South Darren), 1854-1891, East Darren, 1852-1897, Esgair Hir and Esgair Fraith, 1854-1907, and Grogwynion, 1850-1887, The decrease in royalties from several of the mines is evident from the 1880s onwards.
