New archives list: Wales and the West Indies

Thanks to sterling work by one of our volunteers we are pleased to release details of a newly listed archives collection relating to the relationships between Wales and the West Indies.

The papers of historian Clare Taylor which were donated to the Institute of Commonwealth Studies include transcripts of original diaries and manuscripts held at institutions including the National Library of Wales and West Indian Reference Library, as well as articles and draft articles covering topics including Welsh interests in the West Indies during the plantation period and West Indian heiresses. The collection also includes Clare taylor's transcription of the Lascelles Letter Books, 1740-1763, the originals of which were destroyed in December 1940 due to bombing in London.
