Frost, Jones & Williams were there on the Friday before
the Riots - I saw Wm Davies going down the Road
the Monday after the Sunday on Horseback about 12
o'clock in the morning - he rode a Brown Horse or
Poney-like Horse - I do not think the Horse had a
long tail - I saw Wm Davies at his Father's Shop
one day before that week - there is a Lodge held at my
Master's long Room - I do not know the name of
the Lodge - I saw my Master last the Wednesday
after the Riots - He said he was going on business -
he did not say where- I have not seen him since
Mr Jones and Williams came down to our House
the Wednesday before and had tea - they stopped
all night - I did not see any one else - no one else
was there but them - We heard the Sunday Evening
that the Colliers from the Hills and the Iron Works
were coming down - I heard them say the Chartists
were coming down - After Frost and Jones had
left I heard this - it was not very long after - Mistress
ordered the House to be shut up- Master was gone
out - he went out directly after Frost - it was 10
o'clock before Master returned - no one came in
our House after - it was soon after 7 when the
Men came down - Jones came in between 6 or 7
and went out again directly after - he did not
stay any time - William Davies had a hat on
I only saw him once - I believe the Hat was a
White one - Jones had no great Coat on.
