Scope and content

Papers relating to various aspects of estate and household administration, mainly of Wynnstay and the house in St James’s Square, London. Many of them date from the time of Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, 4th Bart.

As many of the papers cover more than one estate at a time, they have been listed according to type, comprising miscellaneous estate administration papers, 1682-1911; agents’ correspondence (main series), 1777-1813; general bills and receipts, 1639-1789; household account books, 1768-1857; and various inventories and catalogues, 1749-1946.
