On Sunday the twenty first or twenty second of December, I receiv'd 500 Guineas of - Clayton, Esq; Receiver General of the County of Hereford, to carry in my Waggon to London. The Money was sealed up in a Bag, and so delivered to my Wife who locked it up. At night, when we were packing the Goods in the Waggon, Tom, says I, to my Brother, Fetch the Bag of Money. My Wife came out and gave it him and the Seal was not broke. He and she roll'd some Straw round it and put it into an old Pair of Leather Saddle Bags. They roll'd more Straw round the Saddle Bags, and then they were put into a small Pack of Goods and corded up, and this Pack was put into the Waggon, towards the Fore-end. The Waggon was loaded about eleven at Night, and about twelve it set out for London, My Brother Thomas went with it, but I did not go my self - On the Monday sennight, my Son In-law, William Mountain (the Monmouth Carrier) came and told me that the Money was lost.

<p>P. Council. Among the other Particulars in that Bill, Did you mention this Money?</p>
<p>J. Gibson. No; for I don't think it proper.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did you not in November last send me a Bill of Parcels, with advice of a parcel of Money that was coming?</p>
<p>J. Gibson. I might do so, for I have done it sometimes, but have oftner omitted it.</p>

I packed up the Money in the Waggon, and set out with it for London about twelve on Sunday Night, and am sure the Money was never stir'd till we came to Town, which was on the Friday following. For though there might be Passengers in the Waggon, yet they could not come at
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173505220003"/> the Pack where the Money was, because there was a Quantity of Boxes and other things loaded upon, and on each side of it. And where we lay on the Road a Man had so much a Night for watching. And when we came into the Inn-Yard (in Friday Street) I am sure nothing had been removed. I did not stay to see the Waggon unloaded, but being tired, I left that to the care of the Prisoner and his Porters; and not thinking of the Money, I went into the Tap-house where I staid two or three Hours. Then the Prisoner came to me, and asked me about a little Parcel which I had taken up by the way. I have searched the Bags, says he, and it is not there, for there is nothing but Straw in 'em. - Nothing but Straw in 'em.? says I, in great Surprise, for then I thought of the Money - Sure you must be mistaken. I went into the Ware-house and found the Bags lying under his Desk, I searched them but there was none of the Money. The Porters were all gone. But when they came again next Morning, they denyed that they knew any thing of the Money.

For their Method is, to unload the Goods by the Waggon side, and deliver every Parcel single, to the Book-keeper, who sits in the Ware-house to take an account of them.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Were none of the Goods taken out in the Journey?</p>
<p>T. Gibson. We always have Way-Goods, as we call them, but these we put at the Tail of the Waggon.</p>
<p>William Mountain. Being acquainted with the Prisoner, on Sunday the twenty second of March, I fell into talk about this Money, and I said it was hard he could not find out who was concern'd in taking it. He said he had done all that he could, and more than any body was aware of: And that he had heard there was two Men and a Woman concern'd. I asked who they were. He said he could describe them, but did not think it proper; and that in a little time a Man would bring a Woman to Confession; and I should see some Person in Goal before the matter all came out.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I tell you at the same time how I came by this Intelligence? that I had it from the cunning Man at Wickham in Buckinghamshire; and did not John Gibson himself cunjure for the Thief, with the Book and Key?</p>

<p>Rustel. I cannot say as to that, but being in the Saracen's Head Inn Yard, I heard Gibson say to the Prisoner, Don't ruin me quite, let me have but half, or if that is too much, send me but 100 Guineas in a Box by any Messenger, and I'll take it without asking any Questions. The Prisoner answered, If you expect to have your Money again, you ought not to speak of it in a publick Yard but in a private Room. Then Gibson went away; the Prisoner said to me, I had rather quarrel with a Man of 100 a Year, than with my Master, because I have served him so long.</p>

Between Christmas Day and New Year's Day, as I was going down for a Pail of Water, she call'd me into her Room, and said she'd shew me something to grease my Eyes with. So she went into a Closer, and took out a great Bag of Money and pour'd it into her Lap. She said there was about 300 Pound. It was all
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173505220004"/> Gold, and she gave some of it to her Child to play with. I asked her whose it was? She said it was a Merchants, and her Husband was to pay it all away for him in a little time. I am glad of that, says I, for I have got a Pad-lock on my Door, and therefore if any Rogues should hear of so much Money in the House, they'll think its in my Room, and so I may be knock'd on the Head. My Husband coming home to Dinner, Edad she calls him in and shews him this Gold; but he loves to have me keep at home, and so says he, What a-pox do ye do out of your own Room? I went out a Nursing, and when I came home again the Prisoner's Wife said to me Ah, pox o' your Pad-lock! the Money's all gone.</p>

I did not see him beat her, but going farther I heard her say, Ye Villain! you would not beat a Man so. I went up to her, and he and she were a little apart, and he was a Hoing. She said he had knock'd her down with a Hoe and stamp'd upon her Groin, and threatned to cut her Cloaths to pieces and stamp her Guts out at her Mouth for going upon his Crop. Ye Villain, says I, how can you serve a Woman so? Hold your Tongue, says he, or I'll give you as much more. I can't say the Prisoner is the Man. The Woman came every Day after, to my House, except the Day she dyed which was on the Sunday following.

They swore they'd kill me, if I did not give 'em my Money. They took out of my Pocket a Guinea, a six-and-thirty. Shilling Piece, and between ten and twenty Shillings in Silver. They broke the two Buttons off my Breeches and let them down. They took me up Stairs, and said they wanted more Money. They broke open a Door there, and took out two Guineas, ten Shillings, a Silver Cup with two Handles, four Gold Rings, and three Silver Spoons - they had taken another Silver Spoon below Stairs - still they wanted more, and swore they would kill me if I did not tell them where the rest of my Money was. My Breeches being down, they set my bare backside on the Fire. I was not burnt indeed, but sorely scalded. They took a Case Knife, and threatned to rip me up, and brought a Bill to chop my Legs off to make me confess. They carried me into a Back Room where the Maid was beating up Butter, they took the Kettle off the Fire with two Pails of Water in it, and throwing me down, they threw the Water all over me, but it happened not to be quite scalding hot. My Son had in the House between twenty and thirty Pounds which was all lost - They took my Sheets, Table Cloths, Napkins, and all the best Linnen I had - They broke my Head with their Pistols, so that the blood run down and matted my Hair, and swore that I should not live till Morning if I did not discover where my Money was - One of them had a Linnen Cloth over his Face, and they had pull'd up the Capes of their Coats - At their first coming in, they broke a Fowling Piece which they found in my Room, and before they went, they said they'd go and serve my son Joseph just as they had served me, and bid my Boy shew them the way to his House; but I having another Son who was not come home, they were afraid to venture after they had staid three Quarters of an Hour for his coming. They then tyed my Hands and Legs, and the Hands and Legs of my Man and Maid and Boy, and so leaving us lying upon our Backs, they lock'd the Door and went away - They took from my House in Money and Goods to the value of about sixty Pounds.</p>

The Prisoner told us he had worked at Edgware, and had shod this Farmer (the Prosecutor's) Horses, and that he was worth a good deal of Money, and it was by his Advice that we went thither. The Prisoner and I, and Rose went out first; Turpin and Fielder follow'd, and overtook us on the Road; we drank two or three Pots at the Bowl and Skettle on the Hill on this side Edgware. Thence we went to the Queen's Head at Stanmore, where we drank Beer, and eat Bacon and Eggs for Supper. We set out again between six and seven. I believe it wanted but a small matter of seven, and so rode into the Farmer (Lawrence's) Grounds, as I suppose they were, and tyed up our Horses within a Quarter of a Mile of his House. Hearing the Boy calling up the Sheep, we staid a little and then went forward, and Fielder jumpt over a sort of a half Door and seiz'd the Sheep-boy, and tyed his Hands, and bid him go to his Master's Door and knock, and answer to any Body that asked who was there. He knock'd, a servant Man open'd the Door; I and Rose and the Prisoner had two Pistols each, but I think that Turpin and Fielder had but one a-piece. We all rush'd in; we bound the Boy again (for we had unbound him) and then we bonnd the Man and the Maid. I stood over them, while the others carried up the Old Man to make him shew them the House. All the Money that I saw was three Guineas, two Half Crowns and eighteen Pence. The Prisoner
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173505220011"/> came down to the Maid, and said, Damn Ye, shew me where your Master's Money is. She made him a Curtesy, and said, she did not know. But he made her go up Stairs with him: And when she came down, she cryed; I asked her if any body had beat her; she answered, No, But one of your Men has lain with me.</p>
<p>Court. Did she say by force?</p>
<p>Wheeler. I did not hear her say so. We put the Linnen in Sacks - the Plate I believe they put in their Pockets - and carried all to our Horses. We came home about eleven, and next Day we divided our Booty. Rose gave us fifteen Shillings for all the Linnen, and he likewise bought of us the two handled Silver Cup, three Gold Rings, three Silver Spoons. but I can't say now for how much; and Mrs. Rose made them off for him. The Prisoner, as we were going home, told us, I believe twenty times, that he had lain with the Maid in the Garret.</p>
<p>Court. Did he say by force?</p>
<p>Wheeler. He said, he bolted the Garret Door, and laid a Pistol on the Bed while he lay with her.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I don't deny that I was with them at the Prosecutor's House, but I had nothing that came from thence, for they were taken that Day sennight.</p>
<p>Wheeler. He was with us when we divided the Money, and had his part, and perhaps more than I, for they cheated me in every respect; so that out of sixty Pounds, I had but four.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I ought to have had my share of whatever was taken - though I cannot say that any thing was taken, for I went no farther than just within the Door where I stood to watch.</p>

But then the Prisoner came and said, I should go up Stairs with them. Wheeler went formost, and the Prisoner took me up after him into my Master's Room, and they said, they'd Rankshattle in that Room. Wheeler went to the Foot of the Garret Stairs and would go no farther; but the Prisoner swore that he would go up, and he forced me up with him into the Garret, and there he swore he would lie with me. I told him I was a young Girl, and knew nothing of the matter; but he bolted the Garret Door, and swore if I would not yield, he would kill me; and so he threw me on the Bed, and laid one Pistol upon the Bed, and another on a Chest just by, and forced me.</p>

Between one and two on Sunday Morning, the twenty seventh of April, the Watch called me up, and said, my House was broke open. I went into my Yard, and saw a Man standing there, but as soon as he perceiv'd the Light of the Lanthorn, he stept into a Ballast Lighter that was moor'd under the Crane. I found fifty two Sticks of Logwood lying in the Yard close to the Water Side. The two Prisoners were both found in the Lighter, and pretended they were driven thither by Stress of Weather, tho' there was no Wind stiring. They had left their Key in the Warehouse Door.

About one in the Morning, it being just High Water, my Boat got a Shore by this Gentleman's Yard, and had like to have been over set. I saw this Ballast Lighter coming up with two Men in her, and suspected they had no good Design, and so I lay down in my Boat to watch them. Presently they moor'd the Lighter under the Crane and both came ashore, and whispered. Then they went towards the Warehouse, and I heard the Door open. I saw them bring out Logwood, and lay it by the Water Side. I believe they went seven or eight times in the same manner. It was a Moon-light Night, and tho' I could not then distinguish their Faces because I was on the other Side of the Dock, yet I can swear that the Men that came out of the Lighter, were the same Men that opened the Warehouse Door, and brought out the Woods, for I could see very plainly that there was no other Person in the Yard; and they and no others

We went in my Boat, and I heard the Logwood rattle; but as soon as the Light came, I saw the Prisoners jump off the Wharf into the Lighter. Joyner crept under the Foresail, and Easton laid down on the Windless, both pretending to be asleep. I pulled the Foresail off Joyner, and he asked hastily what's the matter? what's the matter? - When they were before the Justice, Joyner own'd that the Key which was found in the Ware House Door, was the Key as locked his Oars.</p>
<p>Joyner. We had no Oars at that time.</p>
<p>Jones. May be so - But you said so for all that.</p>
<p>J. Swainson. There were fifty two Pieces of Logwood, and one piece of Redwood, taken out of the Ware House, and left at the Edge of the Wharf. The Logwood weigh'd fifteen Hundred, one Quarter, and twenty one Pound, and was worth ten Shillings a Hundred.</p>

He took me round the Wastes, and tickled me, and said, he was going that way, and would shew me. But he asked me if I would not drink first. I was very dry, and went with him to an Ale House, the backside of Bishops Gate Street. We sat in a Publick Room, he on one side of a Narrow Drinking Table, and I on the other. He put his Hand under the Table into my Breeches - The Maid happen'd to see what he was doing, and so he threw down his three Half Pence for a Pint of Beer, and bid me come along Then he said, he'd go into a Bye Alley: so I went with him thro' the Jew's Synagogue, into a Bye Alley, where he did as before, but a Man coming by discovered us, and then we run away again, and he wanted me to go to another place, but I told him I could not stay. As we were going along in my way home, he offer'd to give me a Pint of Wine, if I would not tell what he had done. I said I should have Anger for staying.

There he took me into the House of Office, and pull'd down his own Breeches and mine, and - in his Mouth: Then he carried me into the Booth, to see the Wild Beasts. When we came out, he said, he hop'd he should see me often. I told him I lived at the end of Old Street. He came by my Master's Door several times afterwards and spoke to me. The last time was last Sunday, when he asked me where we should meet. I said at the New Church in Old Street. So he went, and I took three Lads with me, and went after him I soon found him, and he asked me to go into the Fields. We left the three Boys just by Sam Allen's, the Shepherd and Shepherdess, by the Pest-house Fields and went two or three Stones throw higher to some Hay Cocks by a Cow House; where he let down his own Breeches and mine, and put his Breech in my Lap; but a Boy came up and disturbed us, and then these three Lads came up. The Prisoner asked them if they had been catching Birds: They answered, No He bid me come along; they follow'd us into the Ivy House (an Ale House grown over with lvy) there we sat in an Arbour, and he call'd for a Pint of Ale and a Bun, and the three Lads call'd for a Pint. They went into the Yard to see the Birds, and he I suppose had some mistrust of 'em, for he paid and went out directly, and then run as hard as he could. I ran after him, and the three Lads after me. Coming to Hoxton a young Man asked what was the matter, we said there was a Sodomite. So the young Man catch'd him, and I went for a Constable, who carried him before Justice Chandler.</p>
