A large number of the documents here printed are derived from the family papers of the late Dr. CARNE, of St. Donat's Castle, and from the collection of the late Mr. G. G. FRANCIS, of Swansea, to both of whom I desire to express my obligations. Others were found in the Harleian Collection in the British Museum, and others among the voluminous family papers of Mr. JONES, of Fonmon Castle. The originals of the Borough Charters are at Cardiff, Llantrissant, and Kenfig, excepting those of Aberavon, for which I am indebted to my friend Sir H. HUSSEY VIVIAN, long a representative of our County in Parliament. I have also to thank Mr. W. DE GRAY BIRCH for calling my attention to many of the Museum Charters, and for his assistance in correcting my proofs, and thus preventing many errors.

In my former as in the present volume, the contents are arranged in order of time, or, in the absence of dates, as nearly so as was practicable, and the series of documents in the present volume is continued down to the reigns of ELIZABETH and JAMES, with a few not unimportant additions. It has however happened, during the printing of this second volume, that a mass of documents, chiefly of the 12th and 13th centuries, have come under my notice, the number of which, their dates, and their importance in Glamorgan history, have rendered necessary a third volume, which will be of the nature of an appendix to the former two, and which will, with them, I hope, form a very complete collection of the charters and early muniments relating to the Lordships of Glamorgan, Kilvae, and Gower.

This charter is clearly written, and in excellent preservation. The seal, 4 inches diameter, reduced by fracture to one third, is of green wax. On the face is a horseman riding to the proper left. The reverse bore the King on his throne beneath a gothic canopy. On his right, at his feet, a young lion sejant, and above, in a niche, a heater shield, thereon France old and England. The seal includes a thick green silk plait, appearing below as two double tails, unravelled as tassels at the ends.
