CRIME AND PUNISHMENT IN NINETEENTH CENTURY MONTGOMERYSHIRE:
The anatomy of a case
On the 14th January 1830 three young men from Newtown were
tried at the Montgomeryshire Quarter Sessions
for the theft of sugar, and statements from them and others were
presented in court. One of the men, Ned Edwards, was also tried
for the theft of porter which was alleged to have occured at about
the same time. What was said in the case and what the outcome
was are noted in the records of the Quarter Sessions which are
held in the County Archives Office in Llandrindod Wells. The records
reveal much about Newtown at a time of
change, and the individuals who lived through it.
