on side land ground - I have never heard the name of the house
indeed I can't tell you what time I arrived there, it was not
day light, I went down to another public house and was there
before it was day light, I seed the prisoner there, where this great
gang stopped he was standing and walking backwards and forwards
sometimes standing and sometimes walking about. I stopped at this
house where the great gang was about 20 minutes or half an
hour I suppose. We then went on to a small public house
on the side of the tram road, a good bit this side of

indeed I can't tell you how far the house is from Sir Charles

left the Waterloo we came up a hill and turn down the road
after we got up to the top. I know a place called Stow
in Newport I seed that to day, we did come down over
Stow Hill, that was 8 or 9 o'Clock in the morning. I
cant tell exactly I did not do nothing but cut off when I
heard they began to shoot. I did throw down the Gun in
that place I come down just by this corner at the bottom of the
hill before I heard the firing, my Gun was not loaded. I am
