Scope and Content

Rhosllannerchrugog Tontine Society was active in Denbighshire from 1893 to 1907. A tontine is a system in which subscribers contribute to a fund which is used as capital, yielding an annuity shared between the members; as the number of surviving members falls, the value of the survivors' annuities increases. The system was often used to purchase or lease land for building.
