CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: In 1934, the Rural District Councils of Conwy, Geirionydd and Glan Conwy were combined to form the new Nanconwy Rural District Council, Caernarfonshire. The direct predecessors of Rural District Councils were the Rural Sanitary Authorities which operated between 1872 and 1894, which worked alongside the Board of Guardians which supervised Poor Relief until 1929. In 1894 the Rural Sanitary Authorities were abolished and the Rural District Councils became responsible for sanitation, some local government functions and for the maintenance of highways. Rural District Councils were replaced by District Councils in 1974.
