CONTEXT

Administrative and biographical history: From the sixteenth century to the end of the nineteenth century ecclesiastical and civil (e.g. poor rates and highways) administration at the parish level was supervised through monthly vestry meetings. Under the Local Government Act 1894 the functions were finally separated, and parish councils were established to handle civil administration. Under the 1974 local government reorganisation, community councils replaced parish councils. Some of the councils accumulated records and historic documents which were transferred to Crickhowell Library and Brecon Library for safekeeping; the libraries also collected material themselves. Some relate to John Hughes (fl. 1891-1926), a gardener at Glangrwyney Court, Llangenny.
