I am hoping that somebody might be able to offer some insight into why John Vaughan was
labelled Outlaw. I was searching on the National Archives site and came across the
following set of documents: Reference: E 172/58/8 Description: OUTLAW: John Vaughan
Viscount Lisbourne of Ireland SUIT: David Gambold COUNTY: Card LAND. Date: Hilary 9 Geo II
[11 June 1735 – 10 Jun 1736] There are two other named Cardigan men described in the same
way as David Gambold: Richard Banks gent., and John Williams. The documents come under
“Exchequer, Office of First Fruits and Tenths, and the Court of Augmentations” – “Kings
Remembrancer: Outlawries”. Thanks Megan Roberts ================================ Dyfed
