Rees Rees of Pillgwenlly in the parish of Saint
Woollos in the County of Monmouth
constable
States:
That on Monday morning 4th Novr last
I was standing at the Door of Mr Hopkins' house
which is situate between Stow Hill and the
Westgate
and saw the mob advancing down to
the Westgate in ranks some armed with guns but
the greater part with pikes. I remained at Mr
Hopkins
' door until the firing was over at the Westgate
and I saw the mob retreating up Stow Hill . I saw
many of them drop their weapons in the Road. I
picked up several in different parts of the town
I should think to the number of 40 and they
appeared to me to be of the same description
and similar to those now produced. - call
