ArrangementThis correspondence was kept in several different ways by the Bridgettine community of Syon Abbey in the period between 1859 and 2011, including by house, by country, by branch of the order (Medieval, Swedish and Spanish), and by date. The majority of the correspondence has been rearranged by house to reflect the most recent methodology used by the community [c 1969-2011] and to provide ease of access to users. Correspondence has only been separated where the divisions between the different houses has been clearly discernible. Where correspondence has been rearranged, this has been noted in the archivist's note in the catalogue description. The original order of each file has been maintained.
