I heard them discharge a Brace of Pistols at him, and I saw the Flash of the Powder. Row afterwards made me go into the Bake-house, and seeing my Master lie upon the Ground, I thought he was dead: he made me stand with my Face to the Oven's Mouth, and took his own Handkerchief, and bound about my Eyes, while the rest went up to rifle the House, They broke open a strong Door of a Chamber, and a Chest of Drawers, and took Money, and what they thought proper.

<p>Mr. Unwin. I live in Well-street, near Well-Close-Square. The Prisoner came to me the Sunday after the Horse was lost, about 3 or 4 o'Clock in the Afternoon, and told me he had got 2 Horses, but as one was enough for his Business, he would dispose of the other. One of them was sit for a Saddle or a Chaise: I said, I wanted such a one, and he brought this wan Gelding to me on the Tuesday following, and told me he was worth 5 or 6 Guineas; but if I would buy him, I should have him at any Price. The Horse was in very bad Condition, when I saw him: and I suspected he was not honestly come by. He call'd for Bread and Cheese, and sent me out for some Onions; instead of going for Onions, I got a Constable and had them before Justice Farmer: the Prisoner had a Boy with him, whom I took up too, and he gave me the Information.</p>
<p>Cox, the Boy. The Prisoner and I had swept the Prosecutor's Chimney, and when we had done, he came to me and fell a Laughing; I asked what he laughed at; why says he, here is a Saddle and Bridle, and there's a Horse in the Church-yard, we'll come at Night and take them away, and go to London. We came about 12 o'Clock, he took the Bridle and Pannel out of the Stable; I held open the Gate; he rode the Horse out, and we both came away together.

I sent for a Surgeon to bleed him about 7 o'Clock that Night; but he continu'd very ill, and in the Morning he told me, if the Pain he was in continu'd, it would kill him: It will make you uneasy if I tell you, how I have been hurt; but if ever I get well, I will right myself.

My Dear, says I (the Day he dyed,) do you think the Blow Morris gave you, is the Occasion of your Death? Yes, say'd he. I asked him if I should follow the Law? Do what you please says he, he deserves it; but I forgive him, as I hope to be forgiven.</p>
<p>Mr. Bransbury. I was sent for on Monday, and found the Deceased complaining of a Pain in his Side, and Shortness of Breath. He seemed very uneasy: I asked if he spit Blood, or made
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173609080005"/> bloody Urine; he said no; he was blooded twice: after which he was easier; but in a Day or two, his Pain return'd, and he could not lie down for the Shortness of his Breath.

<p>Surgeon. I cannot take on me to say, that any of the Bruises were mortal.</p>
<p>Mr. Bransbury. I apprehend there was an Adhesion of the Lungs, and that it was a consumptive Case. I asked him if he had not drank hard, particularly, if he had not been us'd to drink Drams; and he said, formerly he had, but he had left them off now.</p>
<p>Q. If the Bruises had occasion'd some inward mortal Disorder, would there not have been some Symptoms of the Disorder, as bloody Urine, spitting of Blood, or the like?</p>

<p>Mr. Cary.

On the middle of the Bridge I met a Man upon a black Horse: I was attack'd by him and another who came up to him; they had each of them a Pistol in their left Hands, and a Truncheon in their right. They made me dismount, and carry'd me over the Gate, into a Field, then put me into a Ditch and searched my Pockets: They took away the Things mention'd in the Indictment, and which I swear to. They gagg'd me and stripp'd me quite naked; my Hands were ty'd behind me, my left Leg fasten'd up to my Hands, and my right Leg lash'd to the other: Then they drew me out of the Ditch into a Furrow, where I lay 'till 12 o'Clock at Night, when a Man coming by released me. I am positive to the 2 Prisoners, for it was light enough to see their Faces; I heard nothing of them, 'till they were taken up for robbing Mr. Hawkins, 3 Days afterwards; then I went to see them, and knew them to be the Men that robb'd me.</p>
<p>Barns. Dwyer was taken up on suspicion of robbing Mr. Hawkins, and to save himself he desired before Mr. De Viel to be made an Evidence. I was in pursuit of O Neal when my Beadle stopp'd him; and he too desired to be made an Evidence: I have got the Slugs which I drew out of O Neal's Pistols, which we took from him.</p>

On Tuesday the 3d of last Month, I was robb'd by the 2 Men at the Barr, about a quarter of a Mile from Stone-bridge, on the Harrow road, about 9 o'Clock at Night. O Neal catch'd hold of my Horse and led him into Mr. Newman's Ground, and Dwyer lay'd hold of me, and led me about 20 Poles length into the Field. Under a Hedge they laid me down; O Neal took 7 Guineas and some Silver from me, and cut off my Silver Buttons; they cut my Coat and Wastcoat down, and took Cloth and Buttons together, and the Buckles out of my Shoes: When they had robbed me, I was going to get up, but Dwyer struck me with his Stick, and say'd, they had not done with me; then O Neal pulled a Handkerchief out of his Pocket, and ty'd my Hands behind me; but before he had done, Dwyer got upon my Horse and rode away with him. O Neal bid me lye still, for he should bring me more Company presently. Mr. Newman met them both upon my black Horse as they were riding off; they rid as far as they thought proper, then turn'd up my Horse, and I found him again.</p>
<p>Constable. I took these Buckles upon O Neal.</p>
<p>Hawkins. These are the Buckles they took from me. I heard nothing of the Men 'till Thursday, when a Man came from Turnham green and told me a Man was taken there, with such Goods as I had lost upon him; I went and saw O Neal there, and had him before a Justice.</p>
<p>Newman. I came from Paddington with Mr. Hawkins: We drank together at Halsden-green; and he went away about half an Hour before me. As I came home, I met 2 Men upon his Horse, within a quarter of a Mile from the Place where he was robb'd, I knew the Horse very well; and O Neal rid hindmost. The next Morning I heard that Mr. Hawkins had been robb'd in my Field, and there my Maid found his Whip: We printed Bills for the Horse; Dwyer was taken and confess'd in hopes of being made an Evidence.</p>

On the 11th of July, going from my own Cellar, I met the Prisoner within 3 Yards of the Door: I look'd full in his Face by the Light of the Lamps: he pass'd me; but return'd and knock'd me down: as I was getting up, I found his Hand in my right Side Pocket: the Mob gather'd about me, and the Watch was called, but before they came, he knock'd me down again, and ran away: the Watchmen ran after him; I could not run so fast as they, but I heard him say, for I was within 30 Yards of him, the first Man that comes after me, I'll mow him down like Grass. I can swear to the Man, and that he knock'd me down 3 Yards from my own Cellar-Door.</p>

Between 10 and a 11 at Night, I was going (according to Custom) for my Half-penny worth of Tobacco, I saw the Prisoner knock Chinnick down; Watch was call'd, and away he ran: they ran after him to the End of Russel-street, and would go no farther; I heard him say, the first Man that came after him, he would mow down like Grass.</p>
<p>Q. This was done very quick: the Watch, and Company came about you, yet your Money was snap'd out of your Pocket, and you was knock'd down again you say; would it not have been natural for a Man to have said he was robb'd then?</p>
<p>Chinnick. I don't swear the Man had my Money: I lost so much Money, and I felt his Hand in my Pocket.</p>
<p>Q. When was the Prisoner taken?</p>
<p>Chinnick. About 7 Weeks after.</p>
<p>Prisoner. When he was before Justice Midford for a Warrant, he swore only to an Assault: I don't deny I had a squabble with him.</p>
<p>Chinnick. I swore I was knock'd down, and that I lost 2 s. and a Half-penny.</p>
<p>A Woman. I was going by when the Quarrel happen'd: I saw Chinnick strike the Prisoner, and throw him down; he got up again and they fell to Blows; after that the Prisoner went away, there was no Watch call'd at all, as I heard.</p>

Several times I observed their Faces, and I swear that the Prisoner is one of them, for I took notice of his Voice, as well as his Face; he speaks thick and hastily. The Prisoner was the Man who came up and swore he would shoot me, if I did not stop; I up with my Whip, and was going to strike him, but I did not; and the third time of his swearing at me. I stop'd: then he turn'd about and demanded Mr. Hasswell's Money: the other Man was at this time putting on his Mask behind the Chariot, and the Prisoner cry'd d - n ye, d - n ye, come up to the other Side, shall we see what the Coachman has got, because he would not stop the first time we bid him Wager bid me look forward, and Bonner say'd, why don't you see what the Coachman has got; says Wager, the Coachman does look forward: I heard him (Wager) say, D - n you, where is your Watch, and I saw the Watch delivered into his Hand, and Bonner took the Money and the Ring, and Wager had the Watch. Then they left us and went 2 or 300 Yards towards the Turnpike in the green Lane. We told the People there and Bonner came after us, and called out, D - n his Blood where is the Coachman, Why don't he go about his Business. There was 2 or 3 Men in the back Yard, and I asked them for a Gun: I got one, and Bonner cry'd out to me, Why don't you go on? I clapp'd the Gun to my Shoulder, presented the Peice, and cry'd out, Now I have you.

If you have, " fall to, fire, and away:" however, I got Bonner to Sir Richard's first, and because we cou'd not get the People there, he was to be re-examin'd; and when we got the Coachman and him together, that they might see one another, the Coachman said, " out of a thousand that is the " Man, I remember his quick Speech." Bonner was in his Butcher's Livery, and he asked the Coachman if he knew him: Aye, says the Coachman, if I had never seen you, I should have had no Trouble with you then he described Wager; and Cocky is the most remarkable Man in the World.</p>

How do Mr. Bonner says I. What have you bought a Bullock says he; will you go in and drink says I? Yes says he. I bought the Bullock of a Customer I deal with; I paid him for it, and paid him 10 l. I ow'd him. Mr. Bonner was with me and saw me pay the Money; it was in July, and we were in Company together 5 or 6 Hours.</p>
<p>Q. And what then?</p>
<p>Wells. He was in my Company and saw me pay the Money that's all.</p>
<p>- Story. I am a Butcher; I was in Smithfield along with the Gentleman, - the Gentleman at the Barr, at the Sign of the Greyhound; I saw the Gentleman drinking there the 23d of July.</p>
<p>Q. How come you to remember the 23d of July.</p>
<p>- Story. Because it was Market Day, and Friday.</p>
<p>Q. But there are other Market Days, are there not?</p>
<p>- Story. I took notice of that Day.</p>
<p>Q. Why?</p>
<p>Story. Because I was that Day at Market, and I have not been there once, since that time. I saw Master Wells pay for the Bullock.</p>
<p>Q. So you happen'd to be in the Market, luckily at the Time that Man was paying for the Bullock? Bonner was there by accident, and you too?</p>
<p>Story. I knew nothing of Bonner, 'till I saw him drinking</p>
<p>Q. Then you was by, when the Bullock was paid for?</p>
<p>Story. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Who was the Money paid to?</p>
<p>Story. Master Wells paid it to a Farmer, his Name is Foiler, and he lives in Essex. I have nothing more to say; it was the 23d of July, and I have been but once since in Smithfield, this was about 11 o'Clock, and we stay'd there 'till 4 or 5. I said there all the while, and this Woman was drinking there too. I want in and out 2 or 3 times.

<interp inst="t17360908-33-person218" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> . I came to Market, along with my Husband on Friday July the 23d. I have Reason to remember the Day, because my Husband pay'd Money that Day: and going home, I fell off my Horse, and did not go out of Doors for a Fortnight.</p>
<p>Q. If your Husband pay'd Money, did not he take a Receipt?</p>
<p>Susan Well. Yes, my Lord. </p>
<p>Q. If Foiler is the Person he deals with did not you bring him here to prove that lock was bought at that time?</p>
<p>Susan Wells. We were not acquainted with the matter 'till Monday last, else we should have brought him.</p>
<p>- Wells I paid the Money at the Grey-hound in Smithfield, and said there from 11 o'Clock to 4 or 5. But I don't know the Man's Name that keeps the house.</p>
<p>Q. You know the House where you say he was, Why did not you do the good Office to bring the Man, or some of his Tapsters here? That is not so far as Essex. What Character does Bonner bear?</p>
<p>- Wells. A very good Character as far as I know: He keeps a Shop in Newgate Market, and I have sold him Pork and Veal in Carcasses; I know nothing but that he is very honest. (Here he produced Foiler's Receipt)</p>

<p>John Lyon. I am the Person. I am a Clerk, and live in Aldersgate-street; the last Business, I was in, was that of Clerk to a Man of War; I was discharged from thence in February last.</p>
<p>Q. Is not this Receipt of your writing?</p>
<p>Lyon. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What Business have you follow'd since you were discharged from the Man of War?</p>
<p>Lyon. I follow the same Business still; and have acted in the Station of a Clerk to Merchants. I happen'd to be accidentally in Smithfield when the Money was paid and I happen'd to see Mr. Bonner there. These People I know nothing of. Mr. Bonner asked me to drink, and thro' their Persuasions, I went with him to the Greyhound Mr. Bonner I have known those 20 Years. Wells can neither write nor read: it was at Bonner's Request that I wrote the Receipt.</p>
<p>Q. There's no doubt but you did; and 'tis dated the 23d of July: Pray did you ever see Foiler before?</p>
<p>Lyon. No, never. I came about a 11, and stay'd till after 3 in the Afternoon.</p>
<p>Q. So accidentally being Bonner's Acquaintance, you staid all the Afternoon; was you ever at that House before?</p>

<p>Lyon. I have done Business for the South-Sea Company, and the India Company, and for several Spanish Merchants in Town: I have done Business for Mr. Richardson at the London Assurance Office. I have wrote for him in the Nature of a Clerk.</p>
<p>Q. Who else?</p>
<p>Lyon. I don't know, I can't say any one else, particularly.</p>
<p>Q. Mr. Richardson is all, of the several that you have serv'd, that you can mention: if you get your Livelihood by being a Clerk, can't you name some of your Employers?</p>
<p>Lyon. I don't know any one else, in London. I live next the Ship Alehouse in Aldersgate Street, at Mrs. Bowsle's.</p>
<p>Q. At what Place did you write for Mr. Richardson, and what was the Business you did for him?</p>
<p>Lyon. I wrote for him at my own Lodging; and what I did for him was his own private Business, in a Book of 60 Folio. Mr. Richardson is my Relation, and he premited to get me an Employment in the Office.</p>
<p>Q. Do you use to be at the London Assurance Office?</p>
<p>Lyon. I have been there.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know one Wells, a Butcher?</p>
<p>Broughton. No. If that is the Man, I don't know that I ever saw him in my Life before.</p>
<p>Q. Can you recollect that any such Persons as these, were at your House the 23d of July? Do you know one Foiler of Essex?</p>
<p>Broughton. No, but I can tell by my Books, whether such a one paid for a Bullock: I take the Money, and set it down in my Book, for the Grasiers: they don't take the Money themselves; I have my Book, at home, and the Man must tell me who he bought the Bullock of: I don't remember that ever I saw these 4 People in my Life.</p>
<p>Broughton's Servant. I know nothing of any of them. I cannot recollect that any Persons sat at our House that Day 4 or 5 Hours about selling a Bullock.</p>

<p>Broughton. No. </p>
<p>Broughton's Man. Nor I. ( Here the Books from the Greyhound, and the Hostler were sent for.)</p>
<p>Mr. Maynard. The Way of paying Money in Smithfield is thus, the Money Taker receives the Debt the Master does not give the Receipt, but the Money Taker gives it; 'tis set down in his Book, and he gives the Receipt.</p>
<p>Q. (To Wells) Where does Foiler live?</p>
<p>Wells. In the Hundreds somewhere. ( The jokes are produced. )</p>
<p>Broughton. On the 23d of July, I have but 2 Beasts sold, in my Book; and here's none of Foiler's Name.</p>
<p>A Juryman. If the Money had been paid in your House, should you have enter'd it in your Book?</p>
<p>Broughton. I should, if it had been paid to me: but there is another who takes Money at my House, and he lives in the Burrough,</p>
<p>Hostler. I have liv'd at the Greyhound ever since Candlemas; I don't remember that ever I saw any of these People before.</p>

<p>Councel. I ask you if he did not pass for your Husband?</p>
<p>Sayer. No, never. He had a Wife in Sheer Lane.</p>
<p>Councel. Why did he lodge at your House then?</p>
<p>Sayer. He took a Room to screen his Goods, and he would lodge there himself, as it was his own Lodging.</p>
<p>Councel. I ask whether this Quarrel did not arise from his reprimanding you about your Daughter's keeping Company?</p>
<p>Prisoner. She sold her Daughter's Maiden-head to one Major Lewis of Deptford for 100 l. he is since a Bankrupt, and she got none of the Money. She pawn'd a silver Spoon of mine to buy a pair of Sheets, she pawn'd even her own Looking Glasses. She says she did not know where to find me before; but my Lord, she was on the back of a Bill last Sessions as a Witnes against me for a Conspiracy against one Drinkwater, and this Drinkwater has charged my Wife (while she was attending on me here) with a Robbery, and she is taken into Custody by one Hicks an Officer.</p>
<p>Drinkwater. In the Year 1734, I was Servant for about 6 Months to the Prisoner as a Drawer. - Hicks the Constable was call'd.</p>
<p>Q. Who gave you the Warrant to take this Woman into Custody, while she was attending her Husband.</p>
<p>Hicks. This Man was one: There was 2 Men and 2 Women with him.</p>
<p>Warwick's Wife. I saw Drinkwater give it the Constable, and then he took hold of my Arm.</p>
<p>Drinkwater. I was Drawer at Warwick's House in Sheer Lane; he kept a very Disorderly House. Sayer came to him to advise with him about her Administring, and he advised her to make a forged Will, and asked me if I had a Will of any bodies, to make it by: but I would not be concerned. Afterwards he said, one Day, G - d d - n this silly Bitch, she has got Money, I must contrive to get it from her; I will get a Lodging in her House, make her drunk, and so get it from her; Good by Molly, says he to his Wife, I must go from you for 6 Months, to get the tall Man's Effects from the Bitch. What will you do with the Children say'd she: I'll send them to Sea, says he, so the Prisoner and his Wife parted, that he might rob the Woman.</p>
<p>(The Court order'd Drinkwater into Custody, for taking his Wife while she was attending her Husband's Business in the Court; and the Constable was reprimanded.)</p>

<p>Q. 'Tis not usual Sir to read a Testimony; you may use your Papers to refresh your Memory, but it has always been the Custom for Witnesses to give their Evidence, Viva Voce.</p>
<p>Orr. My Lord, I will endeavour to do it. August the 4th at Night, I came to the

After a pretty long Walk, coming to my Lodgings in Clare Court, near Covent Garden, at this Coffee House I call'd, not knowing the Character of the House. I stay'd there to refresh my self, and had a little Punch. I paid my Reckoning, was coming away, but being a little grip'd. I call'd for a small Dram. (Reading.) I committed my Thoughts to writing, having time to do it, and am better able to express them in that Light; and I humbly conceive (my Lord) it will set the matter clearer. I put my Hat and Watch upon a Chair, in the Room where I was sitting.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a publick Room?</p>
<p>Orr. It was a publick Room: The following Part of my Declaration, will shew both where it was, and how. Being a little grip'd, I call'd for a small Dram, and then a Girl came up.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you say you was in the Publick Room?</p>
<p>Orr. It was a publick Coffee House, I made no scruple of going up Stairs, because I've known such Houses to have Rooms above, for reading News, and private Letters. I was in a private Room; tho' I don't know but all the Rooms are publick in some sort. On calling for a Dram, the Prisoner came up Stairs, I bid her make haste, and fetch it to me. My Watch and Hat were lying by me then upon the Chair between me and the Door. The Girl took up my Watch, and run down Stairs; immediately I follow'd her, and took hold of her at the Foot of the Stairs, and demanded my Watch. She desired Money before she'd give it me; first half a Guinea, then a Crown, then Charity because she was poor. I judg'd a Prison or a Workhouse fitter for her than that. There was no Bed in the Room, and I can assure you, on all the Principles of Honour, I called there thro' Innocence and Ignorance. Ignorance with Regard to the House, and Innocence with Regard to myself: I called for my Watch, none answer'd; I contested with the Girl, in Order to have my Watch again. Carney was near her; whether she deliver'd it to him when I came down, or how it was convey'd from her, I know not. That Night I thought it expedient for me to go away, but I came again next Morning. I desired the Mistress of the House to get my Watch again, or I would have a Warrant, and take them all up. She said she knew nothing of the Watch, or who the Person was; but afterwards she own'd the Man, her Servant; the Girl an Attendant on some Occasions. I had a Warrant on Suspicion for the Woman of the House, but when the Constable came, not a Woman in the House was there. I came several Days after to find my Watch; Carney, the now Prisoner at the Barr, said he would see, and help me to it, in a little Time. A Day or 2 after this, I came again, to see if he had any Notice of it. He said 'twas pawn'd for a Guinea and a half, and that with 18 d. would soon redeem it. I desired him to carry me to the Pawnbrokers, that I might be sure it was my own, then I'd redeem it. He said then I might swear Felony against the Pawnbroker, and would not do it: saying, he would fetch it in 3 Minutes Time. This made me suspect he had a hand in detaining the Watch. He said he had seen the Girl, and she had put her self in better Order, and had bought Cloaths with the Money, commending her for her Industry. On this, my Lord, I brought the Constable to take the Mistress of the House, and Girl if found. I charg'd the Constable with the Prisoners at the Barr, and carry'd them to Justice Midford, and he on the Evidence given, thought proper to commit them. A few Days afterwards, the Watch was found at a Pawnbroker's, pawn'd in Carney's Name for 6 s. I gave the Constable the Marks, by which with Certainty he might know, if it was mine: we found it so; I went to see it, at
