Achos y Sesiwn Chwarter: J J Frost v Thomas Price
Roedd achos J J Frost v Thomas Price yn un anarferol iawn. Lle'r oedd mwyafrif achosion y sesiynau chwarter yn ymwneud â dwyn dillad neu arian, dwyn da byw, ac ambell ymosodiad, yr achos yn erbyn Price oedd ei fod wedi:-
Pan ymddangosodd Price o flaen y Sesiwn Bach, dywedodd rhifyn 26 Mehefin 1891 y Brecon and Radnor Express:
Price, known better in Brecon by the familiar appellation of "Tom the
Sawyer," was brought up in custody to the Guild Hall, on Thursday,
and charged with maliciously destroying memorials of the dead in the Priory
Churchyard (St. John's), Brecon, on the 16th inst. The proceedings were
taken at the instance of Mr J J Frost. Price, believing that the family
burial ground had been trenched upon, went to the churchyard in anything
but a peaceable state of mind, and applied his herculean strength in removing
what he thought was objectionable; and when it is considered that he stands
about six feet high and possesses a well proportioned physique with muscles
developed by many years practice as a sawyer, it can be more easily imagined
than described how the work of demolition proceeded. One tombstone after
another was lifted out of the ground and thrown down, and serious damage
was done. The result of his efforts will be gathered from the following
"The prisoner on Monday was committed for trial at the next quarter sessions for the county."
Cadwyd y carcharor yn y ddalfa tan ddydd Llun.
Roedd y Sarjant Davies yn yr orsaf heddlu leol ar y Postern, Aberhonddu. Roedd J J Frost yn byw ochr draw'r ffordd i Neuadd y Sir, ar y Watton.
