CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: North Anglesey Slate and Slab Co. Ltd was formed in 1870, mining slate from Point Elianus, Llaneilian, Anglesey. Shareholders were asked to provide further investment in 1874-1876 to "put the company in a permanently remunerative state". Llanflewyn Slate and Slab Quarries Co. Ltd was formed at about the same time, working on land in Llanfflewyn, Llanbabo, Anglesey, leased from the Bulkeley estate. The manager of the quarry was Richard John Jones. Thomas Sykes, solicitor, of Harrogate, Yorkshire, was company secretary for both companies.
