Matthew Hay: Smuggler, Farmer, and Poisoner?

Matthew Hay forms part of the 2008 exhibition: Pills, Potions and Poisons. Accused of poisoning his tenants, the Wilson family of Plewlands, by putting arsenic into the sowens being prepared for their supper, he was hanged on Ayr Moor on Friday, 13 October 1780. This booklet uses the trial records to reproduce the daily events surrounding the poisoning and asks the inevitable question: was he guilty?
