A ballad was written by J. Lloyd, Cardigan on 13 Oct 1821. It was printed by Evan Jones, Heol-y-prior, Caerfyrddin.

Ystyria lwybr dy draed a threfna dy holl ffyrdd yn uniawn  – Diarh (Prov) 4, 26

Yn Aberteifi fe ddigwyddodd

Tro ar gyhoedd yr holl dre.

Eu fath ni fu ers ugain mlynedd

O’r blaen o fewn magwyry’r lle.

Dihenyddiwyd ar y grogbren

Fachgen ieuangc heini llon

Trwy yspeilio a lladratta

Daeth ef i’r sefyllfa hon.

 

[Rough (very) translation:]

In Cardigan it happened

An unfortunate incident on the town’s populace.

No such thing has happened for 20 years

Before in this place

Hanged on the gallows

A young athletic happy man

For plundering and stealing

He came to this situation.
