Thomas Llewellin's Case John Hughes - States I am a Collier and live at the Fleur de lis
I was at home on Sunday the 3d. November inst I have not taken any Oath
before I came into this Court - I have not sworn to keep anything secret I
have said that I have taken an oath not to say anything about the
Chartists I have never taken an Oath to keep everything secret about
the Chartists I did hear a rumour about the Chartists, on the Night of the 3d
Novr. I did hear them call by the door. when I was in the house I did hear them
say they were going to Newport I know Lewis Lewis</person> I saw him that night
About 9 oclock on Sunday night I was in my own house. I do think I live in
the parish of Bedwelty it is in the Rumney valley I did see some men that night
Indeed I don't know exactly how many I did see, indeed I can't judge I saw 100
I saw 200 I saw 300, some men came to my house about 10 or 12 did come
close to my house. I did not see any thing in their hands, They did ask
me to come along with them. I said that I would not like to come from
home that night it was very wet and dark I did go with them. they say that
they were going down to Newport I did come down as far as that barn at
the stop of Stow as they do call it I saw a turnpike gate there, We stopped on
our way down as I think they do call it the Welsh Oak; It was then about
11 or 12 o clock that night - I did drink 2 pints of beer at the Welsh Oak
I saw many men there, indeed I don't know how many, I do believe there
was 100 there I believe there was a thousand there I went into the house
