Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
In 1933, Capel Bryn Seion was built. The cause, however, appears to date from two years earlier, when a number of members seceded from a neighbouring chapel in Onllwyn. In 1967, the chapel was closed after dwindling membership. The lease was surrendered in 1984.
Arranged into the following: Legal papers and papers connected with the building of Capel Bryn Seion, church record book and minute book, registers of members' contributions, ledgers recording receipts and payments, book of accounts for Cyrddau Llenyddol(literary meetings), new members, correspondence and bills connected with the building of the chapel.
