Immediate Source of Acquisition
These documents were found among the papers of David Maelgwyn Joslin (1925-70), Professor of Economic History in the University of Cambridge 1965-70. It is likely that he had acquired them as raw material for his research into English country banking. They were deposited on indefinite loan in Cambridge University Library by Professor Joslin’s widow in 1971.
