<p>Thomas Grant. I had just received 3 Shirts, 4 Stocks, and two Night-caps, ty'd up in a Linnen Handkerchief, as this Man came begging to the Door. They lay at a little Distance from the Door on the Counter; I was engaged in Business with my Back to the Linnen, and the Man was advanced almost within the Door: I was busy, and not very watchful. I told the Prisoner there was nothing for him, but I was mistaken as it happen'd. He went away; about 4 or 5 Minutes afterwards, I mist it, but thought the Servants might have taken it away. Upon enquiry, I found it was gone, and imagined that this Man must take it. On the Monday following he came again, and I seized him with one of the Shirts on his Back, which he resign'd, and then asked me to forgive him.</p>
<p>The Prisoner own'd his taking the Goods, and said by way of Excuse, that he wanted a Shirt, therefore he took them: That he was in Liquor and had forgot the Door, else he would not have came there again, and that he gave this Shirt back to the Prosecutor with a very good Will, and in a very good natur'd Manner.

<p>Defence of the Prisoners.</p>
<p>White. I was just come from Market, when I heard Collard's Husband wanted to speak with me. I went to him, and he told me he had a Friend's Spoons and Forks to borrow Money upon; I asked him what he came to me for, I did not know what to do with them; I won't pretend to borrow any thing upon them, till I know the Value of them. Nan, says he to his Wife, go along with her, and see what they are worth: She was not willing to go, but he threatned to kick her if she did not; so we went to this Gentlemans in Barbican, and desired to have them valued, because there was Money to be lent upon them: He was not at home, but his Wife was. Very well Dame says she, taking up the Things, and carrying them into the Kitchen backwards. Madam, says Nan, won't you please to weigh 'em? She told us, she wanted a two Ounce Weight, and we must stay 'till her Husband came, for she had sent for him: When he came, they went into the Kitchen and talked together; and when they came out, she told me they must stop the Things, and bid us go home and fetch the Man we had them of. We went home, I to my Goods, and she to her Family, and we heard no more 'till the Constable came to take us up. We neither of us fled, when the Constable came.</p>
<p>The Prisoner White call'd several Witnesses in her Behalf, who gave her the Character of an honest and industrious Woman.</p>
<p>Collard's Defence was to the same Effect; she said her Husband had brought these Things home with him, and when she was taken into Custody, he sold and pawn'd all they had in the World, and has never since been heard of.</p>

I knocked my Mother up, and staid half an Hour with her; then I went in the back Yard, dug a Hole, and buried one Bottom of Line in the Yard; the other Bottom, in single Lines as I could spare Time.</p>

Whom we believed to be concerned, and we agreed to have a Penn'orth of Gin together, whereof we turned up to Bigg's again, and there we desired Biggs to stop the Man that brought those Lines; he said he had no Business with it, the Man that brought them should have them. I left one of my Mates there, while I stept down to Justice Philips; and while I was there, word was brought down that the Man that brought the Lines was in Bigg's Shop; he (Charnock) was brought down, and there he told us, the Bolts we should find at Webb's, a Smith's, against Spittle-fields Church, and that some of the Lines were at his Mother's; we went, but the Hole in the Yard was dug up, and the Lines were gone; whereof we searching farther found a Ball of Line buried at their Vault-door, and the Line was my Master's; we found Part of the Hemp in the Cellar, and the best had been spun up.</p>

I taxed her with it, and she denied it: So I troubled my Head no more about it; 'till I accidentally heard Mrs. Bowen had got it. I went to her House, and she shewed me the Handkerchief: I told her it was mine; she said she had it 12 Years, and I must prove it to be mine. or I should suffer for it. I got a Warrant for her, and Jordan, and Bowen produced a different Handkerchief, from what I saw first. Jordan own'd she took it, and sold it Bowen, for 2s. 6d. in exchange for a Gown, and was to give her 1s. 8d. in Money.</p>

<p>Sparkes. Yes, and charg'd her with it.</p>
<p>Council. How long was it, from the time you lost it, to the time you saw it again?</p>
<p>Sparkes. I saw it no more, 'till the Morning I took out the Warrant for them.</p>
<p>Mary Barret: I went with Mrs. Sparkes, to enquire about her Handkerchief: Mrs. Bowen shewed her the right, at first; but when we went again, she produced another. Jordan owned, she was to give Bowen the Handkerchief, and 1 s. 6 d. for a Gown.</p>

I went on, and he followed me, and struck at me with a Club; I turned and got hold of the Club, but he wrenched it out of my Hands, and struck me twice; then I tumbled down; he asked me what Wig I had got: I told him it cost me 18d. tho' the Wig cost me 3l. He took it, and said he must strip me; then he hit me down again, and stripped me naked; he left me nothing on, but my Stockings and Garters, and I had 3 Fields to go over in this Condition. I got to the House I was going to and gave an Account of my being robbed. I met no one but an Oyster-man, who sprung with Surprize from me: I can swear to the Prisoner, because I walked over some Fields with him. He had my Breeches on when he was before the Justice, they were Grey Breeches, and had been seated; my Knee Buckels were in them, they were two odd Mettal Buckels, they are here in Court, and are the same he took from me. I was robbed on Thursday, and on the Tuesday following he was taken, and carried before Justice Farmer. I had this Pipe-picker in my Breeches Pocket, this we found in the Breeches upon him, and it is the same that I lost with my Breeches; the Things have been in the Custody of the Constable ever since.</p>

As he was going out, I said, Tom, where are you going? he answer'd, G - d D - n his Blood, this very Night either to win the Saddle, or lose it. He came in again about 9 o'Clock, with a new Hat, a white Wig, a Bird's-Ey'd Handkerchief about his Neck; a white Coat with open Sleeves, a black flowered Wast-Coat, a pair of Grey Breeches, with Knee Buckels in them. I took Notice enough of the Breeches and Knee Buckels to swear to them again: (Then they were produced.) Yes, I will swear to these Breeches, and to these Buckels; he had a pair of new Shoes, and a white Shirt, pieced in the fore Flap. when he came in he sat down by the Fire, and Tom, says I, where did you get these Cloaths?

As we went on, he told me he came from Portsmouth, and had been at Stepney: He kept a little behind me, and, on a sudden, gave me two Blows with his Stick; the second Blow brought me down; then holding his Stick a cross my Head, he demanded my Money. I told him, I was a poor labouring Fellow, and had none. I had two Silver Buckles in my Pocket, and thought to have dropped them; but he laid hold of them, and took 8 d. from me in Money. Then he bid me get up, and I saw two of them; they pulled off my Cloth Coat, with a Boot sleeve, and my Waistcoat: the other Man said to the Prisoner, let us leave him his Waistcoat; but he cried, D - n me, I should not have it, and made me pull off my Breeches. then he bid me pull off my Shirt. I told him it was good for nothing; but they insisted on having it, and my Shoes too, or they would shoot me thro' the Head. I begged they would not leave me naked, and they gave me a Knock or two over the Shoulders, and said, If I offered to run after them, they would turn again, and shoot me thro' the Head; so I went back to my Mother's. I can swear to the Prisoner, for I have known him from a Child, and went to School with him. I knew him as soon as he had knocked me down, and should have known him before. had not his Hat been flapped over his Face, which I did not see till he knocked me down.

The Prisoner being a poor Creature, I did what I could to help her, and she now and then did a Jobb for me about the House. The 14th of Dec. I went out, and when I came home the Money was gone. I had wrapped it up in a blue Apron, and laid it up in a Cupboard. I enquired after her and found her out; I carried her before Justice Hilder, with the blue Apron upon her. The Husband was in the House when the Money was lost; but he is slipped away.</p>
<p>The Prisoner said in her Defence, her Husband came and asked her to go out and take a Dram; and being in haste, she took the Apron to tye about her before she went out.

I presented the Prisoner at the Bar to him; asked him if he knew him, and he said it was

<p>Mr. Coldham. About the 3d or 4th of December, I was sent for to this Man, he had received a Wound in the back part of his Head. Upon Examination, I found the Skull fractured, and tho' all possible Care was taken of him, yet in about three Weeks he died; the Fracture being the Occasion of his Death.</p>
<p>Prisoner. The last time you dressed him in Mr. Keaton's House, Mr. Cooley was with you, and bled him; I held him in my Arms, while you drest him: did you hear him make any such Declaration then?</p>

I was in the Garret when the Accident happened, and Word was brought me that the Deceased's Brains were knocked out: I went down to see him, and next Morning he told me he believed it was Davison threw him off the Ladder. The Morning before he got the Hurt, he was very much in Liquor; I cannot tell how he was in the Afternoon, but I know they were sociable, and quiet, and drank Beer together that very Afternoon: I saw them together, and they behaved as well as two Fellow-servants could do: The Prisoner had lent the Deceased a Crown, and he would have pawned his waistcoat, to have paid the Prisoner, and he would not let him.</p>

We go up and down by a Ladder with Bevill-Steps, 14 Foot high. I heard the Prisoner and the Deceased, about two Minutes before the Accident happened, talking in a very Friendly Manner, about a Pot of Beer. The Deceased's Business was in the Shop, not in the Yard, but he was coming to speak with me.</p>
<p>Q. How did the Ladder stand?</p>
<p>Macmullan. It bore against the Bracimer of the Building, and stood aslant.</p>
<p>Q. Could not the Deceased speak to you without going up the Ladder?</p>
<p>Macmullan. Yes, unless he had private Business.</p>
<p>Q. Was it necessary to go up that Ladder, if he would be on a Level with you?</p>
<p>Macmullan. Yes he could not say any Thing in private, without coming up the Ladder.</p>
<p>Q. Was you present when the Accident happened?</p>
<p>Macmullan. Yes he fell before the Ladder fell.</p>
<p>Q. What was the Occasion of the Ladder's falling?</p>
<p>Macmullan. The Prisoner's coming to assist the Deceased, I take to be the Occasion of the Ladder's falling. - The Saturday before the Accident, I know he lent the Deceased a Crown, and the Day the Misfortune happened the Deceased
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173601150013"/> would have pawned his Waistcoat to have paid him; but the Prisoner would not suffer him to do it. I am sensible they were very good Friends. When the Deceased had lost his Business, the Prisoner got my Master to employ him, and sent me to his House to fetch him to my Master Keaton. I visited him several times in his illness, and I never heard him charge the Prisoner, till that Night Mr. Deveil was there.</p>
<p>Q. What did he say then?</p>
<p>Macmullan. What has been read from Mr. Deveil. When the Ladder fell, I called for a round Ladder to come down, and found the Deceased on the Ground, with his Head between the Prisoner's Hands: O! says he, I believe my poor Boy has killed himself, and desired me to go immediately for Mr. Coldham. I have known them both 14 Years; the Deceased was about 24 or 26 Years old.</p>
<p>Q. How did the Prisoner behave when Mr. Coldham came?</p>
<p>Macmullan. He held him in his Arms, and assisted at the first and third Dressing.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I would ask him, whether the Ladder was standing, or whether it had not slip'd away from its Footing.</p>
<p>Macmullan. As I am on my Oath, I am sensible it slip'd from its Footing: it bore on a White Lead Barrel 3 Foot high, after it fell; one Part was on the Ground, and one Part on the Barrel.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Was there not a large Grinding-stone on the Barrel-head; and did not the Ladder fall upon that?</p>
<p>Macmullan. Yes; and we all apprehended the Deceased fell on that Stone.</p>

<p>Wm. Williams. The Ladder from whence the Deceased fell, was a large Ladder, every Step about 6 Inches and half wide: I heard the Deceased say, the Prisoner did it willfully.</p>
<p>Q. They have not all declared so.</p>
<p>Williams. I heard him declare so to Mr. Deveil.</p>
<p>Prisoner. This, Gentleman, was the Constable's Assistant and when they took me, he said, I should be carried from thence to New-gate, and from Newgate to Tyburn, if my Master did not pay the Charges upon Duke Ford's Account.</p>
<p>Williams. I did tell him, I would not quit him till I had got him to Newgate.</p>
<p>Sutherland Ford (the Deceased's Brother.) I have nothing to say, but only when I called to see my Brother, and asked him about Davison, he would rap out an Oath, and say, Don't talk to me about him.</p>

<p>Q. Was any body else in the Room?</p>
<p>Headley. Yes, my Lord, I had a Friend with me, and he had a Woman at the other end of the Room; the Prisoner and I were by ourselves, and he and his Woman by themselves: 'Tis a middling sort of a Room; I believe we were as far assunder, as from hence to the Bottom of this Court. - Yes - I and the Prisoner had the Bed, my Lord, - the other Company was at the other end of the Room, and the very Minute she went down Stairs, I mist my Watch. I had it about 5 Minutes before she left me, for I had felt for it. When I found it was gone, I looked for it upon the Bed, but there was no Watch. I asked the People of the House after my Girl, and they told me they knew nothing of her.
