No, says I, You know that she has got a Husband now in Newgate lying for Transportation: And I have got a Wife and two Children, and my Wife is half gone with another. Then we agreed to take Coach and go to Hornsey, and Nell and I and Freeman and one Allington got in; but Freeman bid the Coachman drive to the Two Sawyers and Hand-and-pen in Fleet-lane. I asked him what he meant by that; Why, says he, It signifies nothing talking, We will have a Funny Wedding. To make short of my Story, I was carried to that Ale-house in the Fleet, and we had hardly been there a Quarter of an Hour before

When we came back to the Three Daggers Alehouse I laid my self on a Box to sleep, and while I was dozing, Nell Byrom snatched the Watch out of my Pocket; I asked her what she meant by that; Why, says she, This is mine as well as the Ring; but I will give it you again if you will go with me to see my Husband in Newgate. So in hopes of getting my Watch, I went with her; but when we came there, her Husband Will Byrom was in bed, and she said to him, Billy, I am married to this Man, but not for Love or Goodwill, but only to get what I can from him and bring it to you; and here is his Watch; it will serve you to see what's a-Clock in Newgate; but if he wants to know how the time goes, he can look at the Clocks in the Street. So she gave him the Watch. I desired him to return it to me, but he said he knew better, for he should have occasion for it himself.</p>
<p>Eleanor Byrom. The Prosecutor courted me seven Years ago, and meeting me that Sunday Morning, he asked me to drink; We went to the Three Daggers and staid till six in the Morning, and then he asked me to go and be married. I told him I did not much care if I did; so we went to the Fleet and were married, and here is the Doctor to prove it.</p>
<p>Wyat. Between seven and eight on Sunday Morning, I married this Couple.</p>
<p>Court. Was not the Man drunk?</p>
<p>Wyat. He was neither drunk nor sober, but they brought two sober Men with them.</p>
<p>Court. Sober! They had been drinking all Night - Did you perform the whole Ceremony according to the Rites of the Church of England?</p>
<p>Wyat. I cannot say that I repeated all of it.</p>
<p>Court. What do you mean?</p>
<p>Wyat. I did not give them St. Paul's Advice, but left them to take it or let it alone as they might think proper. I always omit that, and I know it is omitted in several Churches.</p>
<p>Court. Was the Man capable of knowing what he was doing?</p>
<p>Wyat. Yes; for he gave half a Guinea to change; I returned him a Crown, and he insisted upon having the odd Six pence. And next Day he came to me in a Coach for a Certificate, and told me that he very well approved of his Choice, and would take care of her.</p>
<p>Court. Then he ought to be indicted for having two Wives - Officer, take him into Custody - The Woman too may be prosecuted for having two Husbands.</p>

The other Tankard was melted down in three or four Lumps in Gaffney's Room while he was present, and three or four Days afterwards I carried it my self to Barthelemi; he weighed it, and gave me nine Guineas, but I said it came to nineteen Shillings more.

<p>Ratcliff. He asked me if I dealt in the Country, and I answered, Yes, I deal in small Wares. I sent Charnock next Day for the nineteen Shillings, and he gave it her.</p>
<p>Barthelemi. I bought the first Tankard for the full worth - As to what he brought I do not know what it had been, for it was melted down, and it weighed but forty three Ounces: And he being well drest, and telling me that he dealt in the Country, I had no suspicion of him.</p>

When he came I read Ratcliff's whole Information to him, and he absolutely denied that he knew any thing of the matter; but when I brought out Ratcliff and Charnock to confront him, he owned that he bought the Tankards, and said he gave ten Pound seven Shillings for one of them.</p>
<p>Mr. Shirly. As one of the Tankards was whole, I desired him to return it, but he told me it was gone to the Refiners - And when Justice Deveil prest him to produce it, he said he had sold it. It was marked IER for I bought that and other Plate of the Widow Emery, who kept the Cardigan's Head. He had frequented that House, and had often seen the Tankard there, and afterwards knew that I bought it: Besides, I advertised it, with a Description of the Mark and the Weight which was set at the bottom, and one of these Advertisements was left at his House (as will be proved by the Man who left it) but a few Hours before he bought it.</p>

Next Day about three in the Afternoon, I went to Barthelemi's House with the small Tankard. He was not at home, but his Wife desired me to stay, which I did. And soon after he came in, he lighted Candles, and shut up the Shop. He asked me no Questions how I came by it, but I told him without asking, that I came from Mr. Ratcliff.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173509110008"/> Then he weighed the Tankard in a Room behind the Shop, and cast it up on a Piece of Paper, and told me how many Ounces it weighed, and how much it was an Ounce, but I have forgot both, only I remember he said it came to six Pound three Shillings, or wanting three Shillings, I do not know which. Then he asked me where I lived, I told him in Holborn - I then lived in Gray's Inn-lane - He said he was going that way to meet some Company, and he would see me so far homeward. So he went with me to the upper end of St. Martin's Lane in Long Acre, and would have gone farther but I refused, and so we parted, and I carried the Money to Ratcliff, who gave half of it to Gaffney.</p>
<p>Barthelemi. Did not I ask you how you came by it?</p>
<p>Charnock. No, not a Word.</p>
<p>Barthelemi. Did not you pass for the Wife of one Johnson, and bring a Note?</p>
<p>Charnock. No.</p>
<p>Barthelemi. You did, and you said your Husband had had a Suit of Law in the Country, and on that account you was forced to sell the Tankard - What Letters was it marked with?</p>
<p>Charnock. I do not know.</p>
<p>Barthelemi. It was not on Monday that you brought it, but on Thursday.</p>
<p>Court. Produce your Books and contradict her if you can, by shewing a regular Entry.</p>
<p>Barthelemi. I keep no Books - I cannot write -</p>
<p>[As this was hardly spoke loud enough for the Court to hear him distinctly, he dropt this Pretence and said] - I set it down so in my Book, and that I gave her six Pound nineteen Shillings.</p>
<p>Mr. Deveil. After I had brought him to own that he bought the Tankards, he took me aside into another Room, and told me this matter might prove very troublesome to him, but it was in my power to make it more agreeable, and if I would go to his Shop he would make it easy to me, or Words to that effect: When I came back with him into the other Room, I asked him before twenty or thirty People, if he was not ashamed to offer to bribe me? He answered, that what he intended to give me - was only his Prayers.</p>
<p>Mr. Shirley. He sent for me into the same Room, and offered me twenty, twenty five, and then thirty Guineas if I would be easy - Will your Lordship please to ask Charnock about her selling him a Silver Pint Mug that was stolen from the Crown Tavern by GuildHall.</p>
<p>Court. No, I cannot enquire into particular Facts for which he is not indicted.</p>

He pulled up one of the Bars with his Hand, and with that Bar he wrenched up the others; and then I standing to watch, he went in and brought out the Tankards. We went with them first to Mrs. Pritchard's at the Brill, but it being so soon in the Morning, she would not let us in, and so we carried them to Mrs. Morris, in Eagle Court in the Strand, and knocked her up about two in the Morning. Her Husband let us in. At first she seem'd scrupulous of dealing with us, for she said she had been in trouble on the like Account. * Lewis had been recommended to her, but she said she did not know that I went abroad (that is a Thieving.) though she knew something of me when I was Apprentice to a Glass Blower in the Strand. We told her she need fear no harm from us, for no body was concerned in it but our selves. About eight the same (Saturday) Morning, her Son fetched some Charcoal to melt the Plate. We melted it below Stairs while she was above, and then we carried it up to her. She weighed it with old Leaden Weights, and said there was forty six Ounces in all, and reckoning it at four Shillings an Ounce it came to nine Pound odd. She gave us five Guineas then, and the Remainder on the Thursday following - I made my Information seven or eight Weeks ago before Justice Deveil.</p>

By these he made counterfeit Stamps, and thinking his House in St. George's Fields not convenient, I took an empty House by his Order in New-street, to which place we carried the Press and Fly and Crucibles and Metals and other Materials for coining Guineas and stamping Paper.

The new Press was first put together at Bowtell's, and the Prisoner sent me to bring it from thence to Paul's Alley: I went, and Bowtell pulled it from under the Bed, and said there is your Tackle. The Paper we stampt for Whitworth, Heatly, and Parsons, was doue with the old Press. Hearing that Bowtell was taken, I went to his House and found things in confusion: On Saturday the twenty ninth or thirtieth of May, his Wife told me that her Husband was arrested for Debt, and asked me where the Prisoner was, for her Husband wanted to speak with him; I went to the Prisoner over the Water and he told me that Bowtell was taken for selling Stamps though but few had been found at his House, but if search was made they might find more, for he had sent to Bowtell two Quire of two Shilling and three Penny Stamps, and six Quire of double Penny but the Day before. I told him Bowtell wanted to speak to him; the Prisoner answered, As he is in Custody, the Key may be turned upon me, and that may be as much as my Life is worth; but do you go to him and desire him for God's sake to hold his Tongue, for my Life depends upon his Taciturnity.</p>

After the House in St. George's Fields had been searched, the Door was left open and my Hen run in; I run after her, and clapt my Hand upon this Brass Six Penny Stamp, marked Y. This Place was hired by one Watts, an elderly Man, and I have seen him and the Prisoner go in there two or three times in the Day time, but I never saw the Prisoner go in alone. This was two or three Weeks before the search - This Paper was found up two pair of Stairs.</p>

<p>Prisoner. Was I present when it was taken away and paid for?</p>
<p>Boddington. Bridoak fetched it from my Shop in Islington Road, and to the best of my rememberance the Prisoner was with him.</p>
<p>Prisoner, Bridoak swore that I sent him to fetch that Press from Bowtell's House.</p>
<p>Mr. Lunnies. I went with a Warrant to take the Prisoner at his little House at Lambeth Marsh. The Constable and Mr. Wigley found him in the Garden, but he got away.</p>
<p>Mr. Rollos. I found him in an empty House. He had clambered up on the outside into a Cock Lost, where he lay on his Back. I called him and he came down - I found a Gun and a Pistol at his House - In a Room up one pair of Stairs among some Bricks and Shavings, in the House in St. George's Fields, there was as much Stamp Paper as came to forty or fifty Pound.</p>
<p>Mrs. Petty. Bridoak a Month before Lady Day, hired my Garret in Paul's Alley, and the Prisoner used to come there and lye with him for about two Months, but Bridoak staid longer - I once heard a thumping.</p>
<p>Mr. Page. On January 29, 1733, I let an empty House in New-street to Bridoak for a Year. I met him afterwards by chance, and he said he was going to France - On Lady Day last he brought me the Key - I do not know whether he had any Furniture in the House or not. It is a White House.</p>

<p>S. Fell. I think he did, but am not sure. I have carried Drink to the House, but I never went but just within the Door - I have seen a Bedstead there.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Bridoak owns himself to be an Accomplice. He owns he was concerned in the whole Affair, and he has made himself rich by that means. But I was so poor that I was not able to carry on a little Law Suit. He pretended to be a Sollicitor. I employed him to recover a Debt, and so our Acquaintance begun. He brought me some little
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173509110013"/> printed Marks to copy for him, and among them there was one for Daffy's Elixir, and as I had not Money, I was satisfying him this way for managing my Law Suit; but when I observed that most of these Marks had Crowns upon them, I suspected they might be put to an ill use, and therefore I would meddle with none but Daffy. In short I was forced to sell my Wig to carry on this Suit, and yet when he had got the Money, he put it in his own Pocket. If I had been concerned in a Practice by which he has got so much, it is reasonable to think that I might have got something too. His own Terror has brought him to a Confession: He knew that I was acquainted with some of his Secrets, and for fear I should discover them; he charges me with what he himself is guilty of, and would take away my Life to save his own. Has he not been tryed in this Place, * and convicted at Kingston? - I had taken a House at Liverpool, and put all my Tools and Cloaths on board the Ship Suttle on the ninth of May, to send thither. And when I was taken, I directed Mr. Lunnies at what House he might find them; I have since been informed that he has been there, and if he had found any thing that related to Coining or Stamping, I should have heard of it before now.</p>

The Prisoner being committed to Wood-Street Compter, I asked Dean to go and see him. Dean said it was not so proper for him to go, for if the Key was turned upon him, it might be as much as his Life was worth, but do you go, says he, and tell him, that his own Safety as well as mine lies on his being secret. So I went, and the Prisoner told me that he had then in the House two Quire of Two and Three-penny Stamps, and six Quire of Double-penny, which he had received from Dean the Day before; but the main Bulk of Stamps was in a Box at a Coffee-house, where he and Dean had lodged, and he was afraid it was seized; but if it was not he would give Orders to remove it. He added that he had confest nothing, and that he would say he had bought the Stamps of one of the same Trade who had newly left off the Business, and was a Holland Trader - Dean dealt with the Prisoner for Paper.

We made a great many Guineas, of which I distributed some hundreds. There was as much Gold in each as was worth fifteen Shillings We continued Coining till we went to stamping Paper.

That nine or ten Days afterwards, she told him that Pickup the Brewer had been there, and finding her alone, went into the back Parlour, and called for a Pint of Wine: And when she carried it to him, he locked the Door, threw his Arms round her Waste, and threw her down, and put his Hands up her Coats, and attempted to ravish her, that she got up again, and threw up the Sash, and got half out, but he pulled her back, and offered her a Cellar full of Beer to lye with her.

<p>Dr. Beaufort About the nineteenth of July, the Deceased sent for me, and said she had been ill three or four Days, was in great Pain, and under a total suppression of Urine. I believe it proceeded from the Stone, and directed as for a suppression of Urine. I visited her three or four times, but she would take nothing, and so I went no more. She never complained of receiving any Bruises, or any Disorder about her Kidneys.</p>
<p>Being asked if taking a Woman round the Waste, and struggling with her, could bruise her Kidneys, so as to be felt. He said he did not think that so doing could have such an Effect. Being farther asked, if a Stone in the Kidneys might not by Violence be removed, and so cause that suppression of Urine, he replied that it was not to be done by any Violence that could be used in hugging and squeezing.</p>
<p>Dr. Bloxham deposed, that he attended the Deceased in March or April, she had severe Vomiting, and all the Symptoms of the Stone, for which he directed. That he saw her three Days after his Direction, and she had voided a little Stone. That about the end of July she told him she had had a suppression of Urine for seven Days, which he took to be the Stone, and ordered a Warm Bath. That neither she nor her Husband ever told him that she received any Bruise. Being asked, if Squeezing and Struggling could bruise her Kidneys, so as to be immediately felt. He answered he did not apprehend any such thing could happen; but perhaps it was possible that a violent Wrench or sudden Distortion of the Body might dislodge a Stone and throw it into the Ureter.</p>

The Woman told him he had frighted the Deceas'd to death, and she might lay her Death to him. He said, they might do as they would, provided they did not swear he had ravished her. And so he stept down to Dr. Burton, and told him it was well if there was no Trick - They both went up, and were met by one who said they might search now - He did examine, and found no Water in the Bladder. They pretended she was bruised, and that the Child was killed within her. He offered to take the Child away, but upon searching, there was neither Child nor Bruise to be found.</p>
<p>That he saw the Deceased in half a quarter of an Hour after she was dissected, and could perceive no sign of any Bruises, or of her being with Child; that her Kidneys were emaciated by a settling of Gravel. That the Surgeon shewed him two Stones, and told him that the biggest had been fixt in the ureter going out of the kidney, and the other at the insertion of the ureter into the Bladder, and that he believed her Death was owing to those Stones only.</p>
<p>Being asked if he thought those Stones had been there for some time, or had been removed thither by some sudden Violence. He answered, the Kidneys were so well guarded that no Struggle could remove those Stones.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173509110020"/>Mr. Chovet, a Surgeon, deposed. that he opened the Body and found a large Stone in the right Kidney at the Exit of the Pelvis, that he found no inward or outward Bruises; that from the Conformation of the Parts, the Water arising like the Swan-neck of an Alembic, or the Letter S, he thought it evident that the Stones could not fall into the places where they were found by means of any struggling.</p>
