EXTRACTS FROM ABERAERON POOR LAW UNION MINUTE BOOK 1837-41 

With special reference to the Parish of Llansantffraed and village of Llanon 

  Originals in Ceredigion Record Office ref: CBG 964

 The Poor Law Union was administered by the Board of Guardians established following the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834. They were abolished by the Local Government Act 1929 which transferred its functions to Area Guardians Committees acting under Public Assistance Committees of County Councils

Notes - These records are difficult to read as the ink is fading badly.  ? = not sure of a letter or word.  It is not always clear whether Llansantffraed refers to the parish or the district of the Union.  U9 seems to refer to the parish of Llansantffraed.
