The story of Mary Morgan 5
The tone of Judge Hardinge's address to Mary after he sentenced her to death is repeated in the sanctimonious text of a memorial stone in the churchyard at Presteigne, erected by a friend of the Judge:
the Memory of Mary Morgan, who young and beautiful, endowed with
a good understanding and disposition, but unenlightened by the
sacred truths of Christianity became the victim of sin and shame
and was condemned to an ignominious death on the 11th April 1805,
for the Murder of her bastard Child.
The second stone
"In Memory of MARY MORGAN who Suffer'd April 13th, 1805. Aged 17 years. He that is without sin among you Let him first cast a stone at her. The 8th Chapr. of John, part of ye 7th vr."
