Caernarfonshire 1541-1660 These records appear to be exceptionally complete. - digitised version inaccessible due to copyright

CONTRIBUTED BY DAVID ELIS-WILLIAMS: Also, I’ve noticed that you say of the Caernarfonshire Quarter Sessions, “These records appear to be exceptionally complete” but that the digitised version of the Calendar is inaccessible due to copyright. I happen to have on my shelves at home a copy of the Calendar published in 1956, which is Volume 1, 1541-1558. I don’t think that they ever got further than Volume 1, so while the records themselves in the archives are extensive, only a very limited amount is in the published Calendar. Looking through the index, there are just two references to bridges, for example. I would be prepared to collate details from the book, but suspect you may not find it worthwhile.
