Draft Affidavit of John Roberts of Llanerchymedd, co. Anglesey

Scope and Content

DRAFT AFFIDAVIT of John Roberts of Llanerchymedd, co. Anglesey, agent to Mrs Emma Meyrick, George Bradley Roose of Amlwch, solicitor for Mrs Emma Meyrick and Hugh Roberts of Llanerchymedd, innkeeper. John Roberts states that Elizabeth Young had been discovered by John Isaac's son by distributing handbills in Ireland offering a reward to any person giving information which would lead to the discovery of Elizabeth. She had seen one herself and had written to her brother Samuel Grindley offering to come immediately to Anglesey if they sent her money for clothes. He further states with Mr Roose that Samuel Grindley was very much under the influence of Henry Ramsey Williams and would do anything he wanted. They believe that he was sent to Ireland to increase the costs, and that they had also inflated the travelling expenses. Further although £50 had been forwarded to Elizabeth by Samuel Dew, Richard Davies, Thomas Hughes and John Williams when they saw her at the church door in Llangefni she appeared to be in a very indigent condition. They denied that any threats were made against Elizabeth only that they wanted her address at Inniskilling which she refused to give.
