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

W 15 Sept 1830 William Griffiths for attempted murder of his wife

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.
