The archive comprises the personal correspondence and papers of the families that were the antecedents of the Fraser Roberts family who lived at Foxhall in the parish of Henllan in the early to mid-20th century. The structure of the catalogue reflects this, being arranged under the Fraser, Roberts and Griffiths families. The Fraser family were tailors and drapers originating in the Scottish Highlands, some of them settling in north Wales in the late nineteenth century. In 1898 Lily, youngest daughter of Alexander Fraser of Caernarfon married Robert H Roberts of Foxhall. Robert was the son of John Roberts, who had lived at Foxhall since 1851, and Elizabeth Griffiths, daughter of Edward Griffiths of Gwernigron, St Asaph. The correspondence of the children of Lily and R H Roberts, John, Robin and Marjorie are amongst the most recent documents in the archive.
