James Gaine, born in Ireland approx.1858-1860

My great-great-grandfather James Gaine is proving to be a very illusive character, could anyone help me find out more about him ? I'm sure it's all bad...

Info i have so far:
-Born in Ireland, possibly County Wicklow
-Father's name, Edward Gaine, occupation- chandlier
-Lived in Holyhead 1890-1900
-Married Ellen Williams (widow formerly Griffith) in 1892 in Caernarvon, Wales
-Imprisoned in 1900-1901 with his wife for 3 months (awful charges)
-Possibly in Llanbeblig prison in 1911 census under the name James 'Gaina'

Cannot find records of why he was imprisoned for the second time, suspect bigamy ?!?

Any info much appreciated, thank you!
