Montgomeryshire is one of the thirteen historic counties of Wales. The county was abolished and amalgamated with Radnorshire and Breconshire to create the county of Powys in 1974. The records also includes the villages of Mallwyd and Llanymawddwy of the historic county of Merionethshire, which bordered Montgomeryshire.
