From the first he was one of the most constant supporters of the Powys-land Club and one of the most learned contributors to the Montgomeryshire Collections . He was well versed in the genealogy and heraldry of the county . His most important contribution was the series of articles on ‘ The Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire, 1541 to 1638 ,’ running through many volumes of the Collections and published as a separate volume in 1876 . This series, interrupted in the ninth volume, was renewed in the twenty-seventh and carried on from 1639 to 1676 , but illness and death broke their continuance. [Next to these we must mention his ‘ Miscellanea Historica ,’ to which may be added a long list of shorter articles and contributions].
