PUBLISHED MAINLY IN 1976 Adding to our knowledge of the English boroughs of Wales, A. J. Taylor prints the names of freeholders in Flint and Rhuddlan in 1292 from the Flintshire lay subsidy roll of 21 Edward I, in Flintshire Hist. Soc. Public- ations, XXVII, 152-60. An English source, the Hagnaby Chronicle from Lincolnshire, provides R. F. Walker with fresh evidence concerning the Welsh War of 1294-95 and the battle of Maes Moydog in particular, ante, VIII, 125-38. J. B. Smith examines the role of Gruffydd Llwyd in the crisis of 1315-18 and its relationship with the broader problems of Welsh political allegiance in the early-fourteenth century, in Bull. Board of Celtic Studies, XXVI, 463-78; these problems are further explored by the same author in a study of Welsh loyalties during Edward 11's reign and he relates these to political forces in England as they were reflected in the actions of the king's supporters and opponents in Wales, ante, VIII, 139-71. Using the earldom of Chester records, A. D. Carr traces the career of another fourteenth-century descendant of the ubiquitous Ednyfed Fychan, Rhys ap Roppert, his activities in the lordship of Denbigh and the county of Flint and, in particular, his services to the Crown, in Denbighshire Hist. Soc. Trans., XXV, 155-70. C. A. Gresham outlines the history of landownership in the township, once the maerdref, of Neigwl in the Lleyn peninsula through medieval and modern times, in Caernarvonshire Hist. Soc. Trans., XXXVII, 11-42. R. E. Hughes, J. Lutman, A. G. Thomson and J. Dale, in a self-con- fessedly hazardous enterprise, attempt to summarise and assess the reliability of present information on the farmstock population of upland Gwynedd in the period c. 1200-1350, in Journal Merioneth Hist. and Record Soc., VII, 373-83; in a similar vein, H. Barnie advocates the use of landscape history to determine something of the changing pattern of human colonization and settlement in south-west Wales, in The Carmarthenshire Antiquary, XII, 27-30. D. Pratt analyses the social and economic basis for the prosperity of the leadmining community of Minera in the lordship of Bromfield and Yale in the fourteenth century, in Denbighshire Hist. Soc. Trans., XXV, 114-154. F. Jones pursues the family tree of the Cardiganshire Lloyds of Gilfach- wen, Cilgwyn and Coedmore along its medieval and modern branches, in Ceredigion, VIII, 72-99. By way of a postscript to his earlier studies, P. C. Bartrum communicates further observations on the Welsh genealogical manuscript collections, in Trans. Honourable Soc. of Cymmrodorion, 1976, pp. 102-18. From a study of the war poetry of Guto'r Glyn, Saunders Lewis ascribes the readiness of young Welshmen to enlist in English armies in France to the political disillusionment prevalent among the post-Glyndwr generation, in Ysgrifau Beirniadol, IX, 80-99 (in Welsh). In her essay on a remarkably archive-conscious nobleman, Edward, third duke of Buckingham, C. Rawcliffe has occasion to refer to certain estate valors for his lordships in the March of Wales, in Journal of the Soc. of Archivists, V, 194-300.
