St David's Cathedral Library, St Davids, Pembrokeshire

Reproduced by kind permission of the Dean and Chapter of St David's Cathedral.

The manuscript was given to the cathedral by Miss Dorothy Ellis. In a letter dated 20th December 1928, she noted that 'the book was made by my English Great Aunts who were Puseyites of the forties and fifties. I give it in memory of my late father'. Unfortunately Miss Ellis names neither the aunts nor her father. She left Pembrokeshire for Newmarket.
