CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: There was a forge in existence at Melingriffith (Melin Gruffudd), Whitchurch, as early as the 1750s, located near a medieval water-mill. In 1768, the Bristol firm Reynolds, Getley & Co. took over the management of the Melingriffith tinworks and transformed it into a prosperous enterprise. Key to its success was the construction of a second mill on the site in 1774-1775. The Melingriffith works were sufficiently important to feature on the George Yates map of Glamorgan 1799.
