<p>Mr. Hilliard. As I stood at my own Door, in Angel-Court, I heard a cry of stop Thief, and going to the End of the Court, I saw two Chairmen who had stopt a Man. They said he had robb'd Mrs. Woodnot ; they had not hold of the Prisoner, but they [and others ] surrounded him. I ask'd them why they did not secure him? They said, they could not stay, because they were obliged to wait upon their Matter ( Mistress ) but they hop'd I would take care of him, and so he was deliver'd to me. I collar'd him, and brought him back up the Court, attended by several others. After he had struggled hard to get away, but without Success, the People pressing about him, Sir, says he, you have me now in your power, but I hope you won't let me be stifled, give me liberty to breathe a little. By all means, says I, and so the Crowd making way, he set his Back against the Wall, but I still held him by the Collar; he put his Hand down, but whether to his Pocket or Bosom I cannot be certain, and presently the People cry'd, Have a Care! there's a Pistol! I saw the Pistol presented at my Head, but my surprise was so great that I cannot take upon me to say, whether 'twas he or any other who held it. The Pistol was immediately fir'd but as it happen'd no Mischief was done. Upon this I carry'd him, and threw him down, and others assisting we tyed him, and carry'd him to the Watch-house.</p>

I had left my Door open, and as soon as I saw he was taken, I went back to lock it, which when I'd done, I went down the Court again, and met Mr. Hilliard, and others bringing the Prisoner up. The Prisoner said he was an innocent lame Man, and never did an ill Thing in his Life. After some struggle, he said, he hop'd we'd give him leave to fetch his Breath; and so setting his Back against the Wall, I saw him put his Hand downward to his Pocket or Bosom, I can't say which, and pull out a Pistol and fire it. Upon which Mr. Hilliard knock'd him down, and I wrenched the Pistol out of his Hand, and then we bound him and search'd him. We found loose Gun-powder in every Pocket, and in one there were 2 or 3 Cartridges, and some small pimple Stones (Pebbles) which I suppose were to serve for Bullets. We were forced to carry him by main Strength to the Watch-house, for he would not walk one step that way; it was then too late to go before the Justice, and so for better Security we carry'd him the same Night from the Watch-house to the Gate-house. Next Day I went in the Coach with him to Newgate, and going along, he damn'd me for a Son of a Bitch, and swore if he had a Knife, he'd stick me in the Guts.</p>

<p>Prisoner. As for the Pistol and Powder, I can give a good Account how I came by them. I was Cook of a Ship, that was just come from New-England, in Company with another Ship, and our Captain invited the other Captain on board our Ship, and that Captain brought his Cook with him; and this Cook was more expert than I, in taking, and telling Stories and singing a Song, and besides, he could dance, and tumble, and play twenty Tricks to make Diversion; and your Captains, you know loe to have their Frolicks when they are at Sea. So that this Captain set great Store by this Cook, and this Cook took a great liking to me, and say he, Let's take some Cartridges of Powder, and make Wildfire to run about the Streets, for the Glory of God, that we are come safe to old England ; and so I came by this Powder, sweet Jesus Almighty knows it to be true. And as for the Pistol, this Cook was an, Flannovernia and a loyal Soul he was to his Majesty, and so he gave me this Pistol, and we drunk our Sovereign Lord King George's Health, and at every Glass we fir'd off a Pistol in honour of the Royal Family; and the Lord above knows, that this is the whole truth of the Matter, and that I had this Pistol on no other Account than to shew my Loyalty.</p>
<p>Court. What time was this?</p>
<p>Prisoner. The same Day that I was taken too.</p>
<p>Court. Where was the Ship ?</p>
<p>Prisoner. At Limehouse.</p>
<p>Court. And how came you to Angel-Court.</p>
<p>Prisoner. God knows that, for I was elevated, and can't give a particular Account ; only I remember we came from on board about 4 in the Afternoon, and this Cook row'd us a-shore with the wrong Ends of the Oars; and I believe he had some relations that liv'd about Angel-Court, and so I might bear him Company; and tho' I had a Pistol and Powder, I had no Ball.</p>
<p>Court. But it seems you had small Pebbles. How came you by them?</p>
<p>Prisoner. Pebbles ? Why I remember we were heaving Ballast the Day before, and the Cook and I threw many a Shovelful of Ballast at one another for Sport, and so I suppose some of it got into my Pocket. I have a great many Captains to speak to my Character, tho' it happens that none of them are here; but I am an innocent lame Man, and I further, it is wilful Murder. The Jury found him

God damn your, let's go out all together; for he had stole a Haymaker's Coat in the Fields, and I had pawn'd it for him; so we agreed, and went to the Barley-Mow and sit upon the Bench. When we had waited about half an Hour, a Man (about the Size of the Prosecutor) came by. I collar'd him with one Hand, and held a Pistol in the other. Tanner stood by with a Knife; and Cecil, with another Knife, struck the Gentleman on the Head. Tanner took his Hat, Cane, and Money; I think there was 10 s. The Gentleman said we had used him ill, and cut his Nose, and desired us to return his Cane, which we did. Then we went to the Haycocks near Hoxton, and lay till Morning, when Tanner looking on the Hat said, God damn you, how came this Cut? Why, says Cecil, I did it. God damn you, says Tanner again, how could you be so barbarous? We not thinking it proper to pawn the Hat, because of the Cut, I gave them a Shilling a-piece and took the Hat to myself; and so Tanner went to fetch his grey Coat out of Pawn (he has it on now) and I went home; but we had agreed to meet again at the White Bear in Old-street Square to play at Skittles. When I came to them, Tanner had won all Cecil's Money, and then he [Tanner] said he must go home to his Wife, for she had no Money, and he would come to us again. But not meeting us according to his Promise, I fear'd he was going to make himself an Evidence; and so, to be before-hand with him, I surrender'd myself directly to Mr. Cathery, the Constable, and he advertised the Robbery in the News.

The Deceased answered, Suppose I have no Master, and what then? I was afraid of a Quarrel, and desired the Deceased to go along and not mind them. But he said, As I affront nobody, I won't take an Affront from anybody, and I'll revenge my own Cause. This occasioned more Words on both Sides, and I still urged the Deceased to go, but he bid me not be afraid, for he would do no Hurt.

I carried the Deceased to an Apothecary's Shop just by; the Apothecary's young Man advised me to go to Mr. Stevens the Surgeon, and coming out, I met a Croud with the Prisoner. - He lived but 21 Hours afterwards.

Green, in Stanhope-Street, Clare-Market, and sold it him for 19 s. 6 d. He called us good Boys, and bid us take Care. Then we went about Eleven the same Night, and got as much more, and hid it in a Dunghill by the Ditch-side; but it was found by a Boy who went there to ease himself, and so the Prosecutor came to hear of it, and we were taken the next Friday Morning by a Watchman, as we came out of Brown-low-Street with some Lead we had stole; and so I was made an Evidence.

I presently step'd back, and bid the Door-keeper of the Walks let me know if he saw any suspicious Persons loitering about there: A Boy came and told me, that he saw two Men pick a Gentleman's Pocket in the dark Passage by the Bookseller's Shop. I went to the Passage, took hold of the Prisoner, and saw him throw down a silk Handkerchief. Sir, says I, you must go with me. Sir, says he, I am a Gentleman; what d'ye mean? I could find no Constable, and so I took him to my own House; he fell on his Knees, and made many Protestations of his Innocence, but upon searching him, I found my Handkerchief in his Bosom. Then he said, he was no Pick-pocket himself, but was only retain'd by them, and had 1 s. 6 d. a Day to attend on them, and take what they stole.</p>
<p>Rich. Smith. When my Father had brought the Prisoner home, the Prisoner kneel'd down and call'd Christ to witness that he never pick'd a Pocket in all his Life, tho' at the same time I saw him pull a Handkerchief out of his Pocket and put it into his Bosom; but when he found that my Father was resolved to search him thoroughly, he took it out of his Bosom again, and gave it to my Father, who own'd it; and then the Prisoner said, If it's your's, I can expect no Mercy.</p>

<p>Baker No, we came in a C to Clerkenwell Gen, and sent for you to the Horn Alehouse, and you came over to us, and then you went and fetch'd the Bag, and you and Mattox went out to sell the Dish, and I and Watson, and Walker, stay'd there till you came back and brought us a Guinea.</p>
<p>Court. Stay'd where ?</p>
<p>Baker. At the Alehouse at Clerkenwell-Green.</p>
<p>Court. Why you swore just now, that you stood leaning against a Post at the Old-Bailey-Gate,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173306280018"/> Gate, while they went in and brought out a Guinea; that you went thence to Rode's and eat part of a Goose: that you went back again to the Old-Bailey, where you waited till they brought out the six Guineas, and that then you went to the King's Head.</p>
<p>Baker. No; we stay'd at Clerkenwell because we had not Money to discharge the Reckoning till they brought the Guinea, and then we went to Rodes's, and from Rodes's they went for the six Guineas, and so to the King's-Head</p>
<p>Court. You swore you went first to the King's-Head, then to the Old-Bailey, where you stood watching till they brought the Guinea; and you gave this Reason for your watching, that you were afraid they would run away with the Money. And now you swear that you did not watch at the Old-Bailey, but stay'd at Clerkenwell-Green till they brought the Guinea; and you give a Reason for that too, you had no Money to pay the Reckoning.</p>

<p>Court. Baker swore that he carry'd the Dish.</p>
<p>Walker. When they had run up 8 or 9 s. I asked them for the Money; they said if I would go with them they would pay me, I asked them if they thought I had nothing to do but to tag after their Tails when I was with Child and not well; they said, I should have a Coach, and so a Coach was called, and we drove to the Horn at Clerkenwell-Green. They had no Money to discharge the Coach, and so I paid 1 s. 6 d. for them. Mattox went from the Alehouse and fetch'd a young Man (I think his Name is Howard) who drank once, and then he and Mattox went out together, and when they return'd Mattox chang'd a Guinea, and paid for four Pints of Ale that we had had. They insisted upon my Eating something, and so we went to another House, and had a Quarter of a Goose.</p>
<p>Court. How long was it after they brought the Dish, before you went with them ?</p>

<p>C. Walker. I can't tell the Hour, but it was at Supper late at Night, and then from thence we all, but Howard, went home in a Coach; they sat me down at my Door, and then they discharged the Coach.</p>
<p>Howard. Baker swore that we went to the Kings's-Head after we had eat the Goose; did you see me bring the Money, or have the Dish?</p>
<p>C. Walker. No; Mattox brought the Money, and it was he that brought the Dish to my House.</p>
<p>Howard. Baker charged Walker with the Dish.</p>
<p>Baker. That was only for keeping it all Night.</p>
<p>Court. She swears you took the Dish with you the same Night.</p>
<p>Baker. No it was next Morning.</p>
<p>Howard. Was not she taken up about the Dish?</p>
<p>Baker. Yes.</p>
<p>Howard. How came she to be discharged?</p>
<p>Baker. Because she own'd the Dish and deliver'd it.</p>
<p>Howard. Watson was discharged of this Dish last Sessions.</p>
<p>Baker. Yes; but he was not indicted because the Prosecutor was not here.</p>

The fourth riffled my Pockets of a Gold Ring, a pair of Bath-metal Studs, and two Guineas It was so dark I could not see their Faces so as to know them, and therefore cannot swear to the Prisoners.

<p>Kelly. What did you lose two Guineas?</p>
<p>Mr. Owen. Yes; I had two Guineas when I was in Golden-Square, which was but a little before.</p>

The Prisoner and I lodged together with Sam Quan +, who was hang'd in the Country for a Robbery about three Months ago. Sm Goodman was with us at Quan's, and about 11 at Night we went to see him home. We met the Prosecutor in one of the Streets in Covent Garden, where the Mercers live; Goodman hit him on the Shoulder, and bid him stand, and Kelly took two Guineas out of his Pocket, and drop'd them both on the Stones, I stoop'd and found one, but we lost t'other, for another Gentleman was coming by, and some Chairmen stood over the way, and saw us rob, so that we were forced to make off - Sam Goodman took a Gold Wire Ring off the Prosecutor's Finger.</p>
<p>* Quan and Conway were try'd in London, for Robbing Job Nutton, in January 1731-2, but were acquitted. See the SESSIONS-PAPER for last Year, Numb. II. Part II. pag. 58.</p>

<p>Baker. We all reckon'd so, because it was a Ring, but we did not see where he took it from. He took a pair of Brass Studs to; as we were going away Kelly cut the Gentleman over the Eye, with the butt End of a Whip.</p>

<p>Kelly. You swore before Alderman Brocas, that the Gentleman was robb'd of 2 Guineas and a Watch, but now you know nothing of the Watch.</p>
<p>Baker. No, I said I believ'd Goodman took his Watch, and we three said so that Night at Quan's House, and you your self spoke of it first, but next Day we heard it was no such thing. We thought so because Goodman pick'd the Gentleman's Pocket.</p>
<p>Kelly. You said just now, that it was I that pick'd his Pocket.</p>
<p>Baker Yes, you was fumbling about it, but Goodman push'd you away, and did it himself, and as he went to Sea the next Day, we thought he had snk the Watch.</p>
<p>Kelly. But you swore that he took a Watch ?</p>

<p>Baker. No, I said as I say now, that I believ'd he took a Watch.</p>

<p>Baker. Yes, Goodman took the Gentleman by the Shoulder, and bid him stand, then Kelly put his Hand in his Pocket, and riffled him, and drop'd the Gold, and I pick'd up one Guinea.</p>
<p>Kelly. Just now you said Goodman pick'd his Pocket.</p>

He had a Woman with him, but what she is for her Body I don't know. He asked us to drink a Quartern of Gin; and two Days afterwards this Woman came to a House in St. John's-street, where Grace and I were together, and she called him out, and he went with her. I would have fetch'd him away, but he said he would stay with her all Night, and so he did; and I staid in the same House, and the next Morning I made the best of my Offence home to my 'Biding; and the Day after I met him again in St. Giles's, and going into Drury-Lane, we were both taken by Baker, and the Thief-catchers Atkins, and Adley.

I went backward and found my Casement, which neither opens nor shuts, was taken off, mash'd 10 pieces, and thrown under the Window; there was a Shutter belonging to it, which I had fastened myself over Night with a wooden Bar and Pin and Key; but I

<p>Henry Lane, Watchman. Being at my Stand I heard a Noise of a Window breaking ; I planted my Brother Watch at the Street-door and went backwards, and finding the Window broke open, I called the Prosecutor up: I went in; the till was open, and the Lock and a Brass Box lying on the Counter. A pair of Shoes lay by the Window, and one said, I know those Shoes and the Owner of them, and he can't be far off. We found the Prisoner in the Stable with his Head under the Manger, and without Shoes. He own'd the Shoes to be his. - The Stable is about 20 Yards from the Window.</p>

The Stable-door had been nail'd up for some Time, so that there is no way into it but by getting up into the Hay-loft ; so we got up and came down into the Stable, and there he lay in a muck Sweat, without his Shoes; I burst the Stable-door open with my Backside to get him out, and he own'd the Shoes.</p>

I wrote to Mr. Brereton, and received his Answer the 16th of February, after which, Smith and Griffith came to me again; I told them we had agreed that the Sisters and their Husbands should all be conusant of the Fine; and as the two Estates were in the same Parish, to save the Charge of two Fines they were to join them in one. Griffith agreed to this Fine, and undertook to go next Morning into Essex (where he said Smith's Brothers and Sisters lived) and procure them to come up next Monday: And on Monday in the Afternoon he came and told me, that the Brothers and Sisters were come up, and desired me to get all ready against next Day. It happened my Lord Chief Justice was not then at Leisure, and so we agreed on Wednesday. I went on Wednesday to his Lordship's Chambers, and in the Evening Griffith came to me there, and said that Mr. Smith and his Brothers and Sisters were all below ; I went down with him, and he shewed me the Prisoners sitting on a Bench under the Arch of Serjeants-Inn: Are these they? says I; Yes, says he. I proposed that they should go to the Coffee-house, and be made acquainted with what they came about. It was agreed to, and we all went together into an Inner-Room.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Council. No, that is not he.</p>
<p>Mr. H.. Then I believe Trundle is the Hindermost.</p>
<p>P. Coun. But you are not positive which is which</p>
<p>Mr. H. The Prisoners were altogether in the Room, and I said to Mr. Smith, Are these your Brothers and Sisters who are to join in the Fine? he answer'd, Yes. Have you told them, says I, what they are to do? he said, Yes; and that he had paid them the Consideration Money. I ask'd the three Women if their Brother had paid them that Money, and if they were content to pass the Fine? they in general answer'd, Yes.</p>
<p>P. Coun. But can you take upon you to say, that they all, or any one in particular, answer'd, Yes?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173306280023"/>Mr. H. I can't say that every one in particular answer'd, that they had received a Consideration ; but Mr. Smith said, he had paid them the Consideration Money; and the Women said, in general, Yes. I think Prestidge said, that they were all contented.</p>
<p>P. Coun. If they only said they were contented to pass the Fine, they might not be apprised of the Iniquiry of the thing. Can you be positive that every one in particular said before she sign'd, that she had received the Consideration Money?</p>
<p>Mr. H. I can't be so particular. I produc'd a Paper, and wrote the Concord - The Precipe was in Latin, and I read it to them in English - I produc'd the Instrument at the same time that I ask'd the Questions, and desired Mr. Smith to write his Name first, which he did, and the others sign'd after him.</p>
<p>P. Coun. It's laid that one personated one, and another another: Now what particular Person did Josias Reader personate?</p>
<p>Mr. H. I think the Name of Scruby was sign'd by Reader. Court. Which is Reader ?</p>
<p>Mr. H. He that stands behind there.</p>
<p>P. Coun. How can you take upon you to swear that Reader, rather than any other Person, subscribed the Name of Scruby ?</p>
<p>Mr. H. I believe it was he Court. Do you remember his Act of subscribing?</p>
<p>Mr. H. I asked who was the elder Brother, and as I remember, Reader answer'd, and wrote first: I believe it was he, but I cannot be positive to a Man that I never saw in my Life before. The next Name is

<p>Mr. H. I had a second View of them before my Ld. C. J. Eyre ; for after they had subscribed, and drank to one another as Brothers and Sisters, I told them they must go up to his Lordship, and be examin'd again, and I am sure they all six went up.</p>
