Edward Brickley on his oath saith - I am a
Blacksmith a Shoeing Smith
- I know Pillgwenlly, I
have lived there nearly two years - I know
William Stephens he is present - I know John Gibby he is present
also - here is Stephens (pointing to him, and this (pointing to Gibby)
is John Gibby - I have worked for Stephens before the Riots #
immediately before - I remember the riots at Newport I know it
was on a Monday, but don't know the day of the month - I
know a man named Davies who lives at the Pottery beyond
Pill- I was at work for Stephens the week before the riots -
I saw Davis come with a pattern to Stephen's Shop - with
a Pattern made of wood, and said he worked a thing of
that form to rise earth with - it was a long thing about ten
inches long about one inch and a half wide, a flat top - it was
a straight piece of Iron - I did not hear him call it any
thing - it was all solid and flat - the edges were not sharp
my master made a thing according to the Pattern - I
know Jenkin Morgan the Milkman he came to the Shop
and asked my Master to make a similar thing for him - it
it was two or three days before the Riot my Master made one for
him - I saw my Master make no more - I remember
Davis afterwards came and asked my master to make another
that the first was broke, but he did not bring it with him -
my Master did make another - I never saw such a thing
made for digging earth
- I have been a Blacksmith for seven
Years I remember the Friday night before the riot - John
came to our Shop and the last Witness came with him
William Stephens came in afterwards, I saw they were grinding
something but did not particularly know what it was - I was
making some Hinges after my Master came in he worked at them
with me - my Master asked me when he came in what they were #
about - I did not hear what they said - I saw in Gibby's
hand a long spear
- he was grinding it and Herring turned it
we made about a dozen Hinges that night - I went to Jenkin
