Mary Griffiths was tried at Montgomeryshire Great Sessions August 1801 for three offences committed within a week in June 1801. To all charges she pleaded not guilty. Two charges concerned her breaking into an inn in the town of Montgomery and removing goods (a piece of bacon, and a servant girl’s clothing). The bacon was found in her pocket and carefully fitted into the whole flitch where it was found to match perfectly. The third charge was one of larceny which took place a few days later. She had taken lodgings at Llanwyddelan in the home of the Evans family. She shared a room and a bed with the daughter of the house, Catherine, and one night she went “missing from bed” taking with her Catherine’s clothing.
