Scope and content
One of six volumes containing transcripts of sermons by the Rev. Griffith Jones of Llanddowror (1683-1761) on the New Testament. This volume, the fifth, contains sermons on the Epistles of Paul to the Romans, Corinthians, Galatians and Ephesians. The manuscript is said to have been 'copied by the Rev. Evan Evans, curate of Llanddowror and incumbent of Walton, Pembrokeshire' (nineteenth-century note, p. iii), however the curate of Llanddowror at the time was Thomas Evans, in whose hand are written the title page and contents (pp. v-xii). The (unidentified) copyist of the main text finished transcribing the sermons on 8 January 1763 (p. 773). A list of the places where the Rev. Griffith Jones preached appears on p. 781.
