Hi Helen
There was only one paper mill in the Greenfield Valley during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. About 1820 the site of the Parys Mine Co.'s copper forge was taken over and a paper mill built there. This was at the northern end of the Greenfield Valley. It was run by Richard Unsworth until 1844. It was then taken over by Charles Stevens. In 1854 it was acquired by the London firm of Grosvenor Chater and greatly expanded. It closed in 1982 and was ultimately completely demolished. Only the reservoir remains. The manager's house (Basingwerk House) built in the early twentieth century is now the administrative headquarters of the Greenfield Valley Trust which manages the Greenfield Valley Heritage Park. The paper company owned a row of terraced houses on the road from Greenfield to Holywell which were rented out to some of the workers.

I am including below an extract regarding the MSS. I do not know if the wage books give lists of names. I will try to send you a more detailed catalogue entry as an attachment off list because the list will not take attachments.
Michael Chater did publish a book in 1978 on the history the whole company entitled Family Business- A History of Grosvenor Chater & Co 1690-1977. If you want some more information on the company and processes. I may be able to help.

Best wishes,

The firm became known as Grosvenor, Chater & Co. in 1804. From 1765 to 1851, the headquarters of the firm was at 11 Cornhill. Later it moved to Cannon Street, where the firm remained until 1974. The firm acquired the Abbey Mill, in the Greenfield Valley, Holywell, Flintshire, in 1854. The mill, which had operated since 1770, produced high-quality writing and ledger paper.
