John Irish , of the Parish of Sunbury , was indicted for breaking the House of John Bateman Esq ; and stealing thence 18 Pewter, Dishes, 4 Plates, and other Household Goods , on the 27th of April last. The Prosecutor's Servant swore, That the Buttery-Window was broke open, and the Goods taken away; and a Constable searching the Prisoner's House for other Goods, found those of the Prosecutor's. The Prisoner had nothing to say in his Defence, but a flat Denial of his having ever been at Sunbury; which not being satisfactory, he was found Guilty of Burglary.
