Biographical history

The Tredegar Town estate was created out of the Monmouthshire estate. The estate comprised the Tredegar properties within the bounds of lands let to the Tredegar Iron & Coal Company Ltd in 1881 (AT 1/2), but expressly excluded from the lease. The boundaries of the estate appear to have been established by the Argoed lease of 1805 and the Tredegar lease of 1815 (both AT 1/1). The estate was merged with the Monmouthshire town estate in 1919 when the latter was separated from the Monmouthshire estate.
