- Finding Aids: Hard copies of the catalogue are available at Flintshire Record Office and the National Register of Archives.
- Publication Notes: A summary of the various sections of the list, together with brief details of the families associated with each, was included in the Guide to the Flintshire Record Office (1974). In two cases, those of Nerquis Hall and Burganey of Pulford, the material in this collection complemented material already deposited in the office frim a different source. These are summarised in the Guide in the section devoted to family and estate archives. One or two further small deposits have been made since 1974, but these have fallen chiefly into the miscellaneous category.
- Additional Notes: Title supplied from contents of fonds. Several sections of the list include material for areas outside Clwyd, in most cases because the clients concerned owned properties in other counties in addition to their estates here. Where the amount of such material is significant, copies of the lost have been supplied to the relevant county record office. Both the Cheshire and Chester City Record Offices also hold large deposits relating to their respective areas from the same source.
- Rules: This description follows ANW guidelines based on ISAD(G) second edition, AACR2, and LCSH.

This document forms part of a catalogueHierarchy
A collection is arranged in order to show context. This means that it will be catalogued to preserve its original order where possible. The collection will be arranged into sub-sections, such as series, files, items, and these will all be clearly related. Archival collections often have folder type structure if they are catalogued to this level of detail. The researcher can then see the context of an individual item, such as a letter - they can see that it forms part of a series, and the series is within a larger collection.Catalogue Jump to this document in the hierarchy
