Criminal and court records Edward Watkins Neath

SimontheScholar Report 2 Oct 2014 20:00


My ancestor Edward Watkins was born in Neath in 1872, the son of Ann Davies and William Watkins

According to an article in the Cambrian Paper, 15th March 1901, Edward was imprisoned at Swansea for assaulting his brother Richard Watkins

It also states he had committed 21 offences beforehand

Would anyone be able to find out from court records and assizes what the other offences were?

my thanks
