William Williams of Pentwyn
Abersychan Labourer in the Pentwyn Iron Works
States -
On Monday morning last between 9 & 10 o'clock
5 & 6
On Sunday night last I was
at work at the Pentwyn Furnaces with
other workmen - about 100 men came
about 9 o'clock into the Cast House
they had Pikes & sticks and ordered us
to stop the work and said if we did not
stop they would make us - Some of them
said if we did not stop working they
would make an end of us - all the
men at the Furnaces stopped because
they were afraid - all they hollered out "all
all come along if you don't we'll make you"
and if we did not they
would make us
- I went with them
for about a quarter of a mile when
I made my escape from them and
went home to bed - about 4 o'clock
on the Monday morn' - I heard knocking
at my the door of my Father's house where
I lodged - I did not then get up - the
men at the door called out get up - but
I did not then - about an hour afterwards
I again heard knocking at the Door and
men calling out "Get up" - I then got up
