In Beaumaris Gaol the following information on Anglesey executions appears as an exhibit:

           May  1654                             Margaret, daughter of Richard for witchcraft

I do not know the source of this information.  It appears to bear out five of the six potential hangings between 1735 and 1804 though with discrepancies in the names and crimes.
