Most of these documents are connected
with the attempts of the 10th Viscount
Valentia to prove his claim to the title
after he inherited it in 1844.
Several of them are photocopies only.
The originals were removed from the
Bodleian Library in the late 1950s by
the 14th Viscount when he (successfully)
proved his claim to the title. Where
known, the last known place of the
original is given.
