Reg[ina] v Jenkin Morgan
Phineas Sims of the Parish of Saint James in the
City of Bristol
and County of the same City Police Officer States
that
About 2 o'Clock on the afternoon of Thursday the 14th
last I received information that Jenkin Morgan against whom
a Warrant had been issued for High Treason - was at the Bunch
of Grapes Public House in High Street Market
- I proceeded
thither- I saw a man in the tap room answering the description
I had received of Jenkin Morgan- I went to him and asked
him his name- He said "Morgan Jenkins"- I said I wanted
him and he must walk with me- He drank up his Beer and
went with me to the Station House- Three or four Gentlemen came
in who knew him to be Jenkin Morgan- I asked him again
if his name was not Jenkin Morgan - he said it was not - I
then entered his name on the charge sheet as Morgan Jenkins alias
Jenkin Morgan
- I asked him his Residence- He refused to tell
me stating that he should say no more until he came upon his trial
I said it was customary when stating a charge to set out the residence
of the Prisoner- He then said that he resided at Swansea- I
asked him if he did not reside at Pillgwenlly - he said he had not
lived there for some time- He had been living in Swansea - that
he came from Swansea to Cardiff and from Cardiff to Bristol
that day - and that he had paid 18/- his fare from Bristol
to London at 4 o'Clock that Evening - by the "Age" Coach from
the Bush Coach Office- About a 1/4 before 3 o'Clock Richard
Ashfield
came to the Station House and spoke to the Prisoner
and signed the charge sheet as to the Prisoners identity- On
Friday morning the 15th November I conveyed Prisoner
to Newport- Whilst the passengers were landing, Prisoner s[ai]d
to me, pointing at Lewis, Ashfield, and another man -
"That is my three neighbours who have sold me-"
