Captain Apperley kept his own pack of hounds at Morben Hall, Machynlleth. The diary records fox, hare, otter, marten-cat and foumart hunting in Mid-Wales in the 1860s and 70s. "From 1864 to 1878, I hunted 636 days, with 39 different packs of hounds, had 339 kills, 78 blank days. Most of this happened in Wales. From January 1864 to 1920, I rode 212 different horses to hounds, and was mostly mounted by my friends".
