Great Flood in Monmouthshire

Great Flood in Monmouthshire.jpg In the DocksThumbnailsCharles Rivers WilsonIn the DocksThumbnailsCharles Rivers Wilson

In one dated 1607 occurs the earliest instance I have met with of an attempt to illustrate the news of the day. It is entitled ‘Wofull Newes from Wales, or the lamentable loss of divers Villages and Parishes (by a strange and wonderful Floud) within the Countye of Monmouth in Wales: which happened in January last past, 1607, whereby a great number of his Majesties subjects inhabiting in these parts are utterly undone.’
