Dates recorded on carved slates

A number of the fireplace slates found in Dyffryn Ogwen, or which originated from the valley, are dated; all dates so far discovered range between 1823 and 1877.
(See also the When were they made? page).

It has not been possible, so far, to ascribe a date which often details the day, month and year, to a particular event such as a wedding day, or the day a house was aquired.
