State papers: Mining proposal by William Gomeldon

Feb 1625 Proposal by Wm. Gomeldon to work the mines in Cardiganshire excepting such as are worked by Sir Hugh Middleton, yielding the King 30s per ton on the ore found, after the first six months. If the mines were freely worked on these terms they might bring in 100,000L yearly, instead of 20L now paid. They have been worked, both in ancient and modern times and were not discovered by Sir Hugh Middleton. [Followed by a lease of all the mines in Cardiganshire to Sir Hugh Middleton, 21 Feb 1625]
