As promised a few early Welsh units for you. I do have others let me know if you'd like to see more?
First up is the Holywell & Greenfield Volunteer Artillery of Flintshire. An Armed Association formed on 19 July 1798-1801 under Captain Christopher Smalley 1st Lieutenant John Camden 2nd Lieut (Vacant) Chaplain Henry Parry, Surgeon William Denman, they were not re-raised in 1803, this was an unknown type until we recorded it earlier this year
Second is the Lieweny Foresters, the unit is listed under Infantry Associations, as the Lleweni (sic) Foresters and was commanded by John, Viscount Kirkwall, they were Disbanded in 1801. The successor unit being the Denbigh & Lleweny Legion from 1803 onward.
Third is the Loyal Flint Fuzileers, another new one we have recorded they were a Welsh volunteer corps raised by Sir Thomas Mostyn in 1803.
Fourth is a fine example to the 1778-90 period for the Montgomeryshire Militia.
Fifth The Loyal Holywell Volunteers (Flintshire) of 1797-1813
Last up is the Royal Denbighshire Militia (County) button which dates c1804-1813 after which they were converted to Rifles.
Hope they are of interest

The order appears to have changed when they have published but I am sure you can figure them out
