After she was discharged, this Parcel of Cambrick was found conceal'd in her Bed; another Servant found it, and brought it to me. I examined the Stock in my Shop, and found I had lost Cambrick, but I cannot swear to this, because she has destroy'd the Mark. The Fan belongs to a Lady who came to my House on Lord-Mayor's Day to see the Show; 'tis a very particular Thing, and I took particular Notice of it, and swear 'tis the same. The Day after she was discharged, I went in pursuit of her, and found her; I tax'd her with the Goods, and she confess'd she stole the Cambrick while the Family was at Church, and that the Fan was at one Mary Brand's House; she took it off the Table in the Dining-Room; she own'd she took the Fan, the Cambrick, and this Apron. I did promise, (in order to bring her to a Confession) that I would be as favourable to her as I could; but I did not promise her that I would not prosecute her.</p>

I suspected her to be dishonest, for we frequently miss'd Half-pence out of a Box behind the Counter. Once we told 4 or 5 s. worth, and miss'd 15 d. Another time we miss'd 2 s. 4 d. I taxed her with robbing me, and searched her Trunk; this was Nov. 30 I took out 12 Yards 3 quar. of Cloth-colour'd Calimanco; 21 Yards of yellow Persian, in two Quantities; one Yard of white half-ell Sattin; a Remnant of green half-ell Damask; a Remnant of half-yard yellow Ditto; a Remnant of yellow worsted Damask; two Remnants of Holland and Scotch Cloth; three Holland Shirts mark'd with my Name, some Scissars of my Servants and mine; a Pair of Bathmetal Buckles, these Things I can swear to. We found several other Things at one Mr Jordan's Lodging in Swallow-Street, who was an Acquaintance of hers, and had been at my House several times: Here we found one Yard of scarlet Tabby, some broad black Velvet, three Yards of Cloth-colour'd Shagreen, two Yards and half of yellow, ditto; half a yard of Damask, one Yard 1-8th of blue Mantua; these and several other Things, were taken out of her Box at Jordan's. At one Mr. Markham's, a Baker, we found out two Yards and a Quarter of Cloth colour'd Damask; one Yard of half ell brocade Silk; half a Yard of blue Silk Damask, half a Yard of scarlet Velvet; half a Yard of figur'd Stuff, and two Remnants of figur'd Silk; all these were ty'd up in a Handkerchief of my Journeyman's; and we found likewise 3 s. which was Money we marked, but 'tis not in the Indictment.</p>

He told us the Trunk was her's, and that she had left it there. She was committed to Newgate before we received Information of these Goods.</p>
<p>Mr. Jordan. These Goods were left at my House, but I can't say who left them; they were under Lock and Key, and the Box was brought by a Porter for the Prisoner; I cannot say, that the Prisoner put the Goods into the Box, it was at my House before she went to live at Mr. Ryder's, nor did I ever see the Inside of it till Mr. Ryder's Man open'd it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you never see it open'd while it was at your House?</p>
<p>Jordan. She has opened it, but I never look'd into it.</p>
<p>Q. When she has open'd it, have you never observ'd her to put any Thing in it?</p>
<p>Jordan. Not to my Knowledge; she never open'd it but once, and that was while she liv'd with Mr. Ryder; it was one Sunday Evening, and then I don't remember I saw her put any Thing in, or take any Thing out.</p>
<p>Mr. Ryder. I believe both these People to be honest; when she went to their Houses, she might take no more Goods than she could conceal under her Apron, and she might convey them into her Boxes without their seeing her.</p>
<p>Defence. I am not guilty; I never took any Half-pence.</p>
<p>Q. Can you give any Account, how Mr. Ryder's Goods came to be in your Boxes?</p>
<p>Jordan. I have known her three or four Years, she was a Fellow Servant with my Wife, and never heard but that she was honest till now.

In order to land this Copper it was put into Lighters, my Quantity was about 9 Tun Weight, 386 double Heads; when my Part was landed at Galley-Key, I miss'd nine double Heads; I enquir'd then, whether the other Proprietors had their Complement; one miss'd seven double Heads, another miss'd a double Head and a half; a double Head weighs about half a Hundred, some more, some less, they are in round Cakes, two of them join'd together. I next enquir'd, whether the Copper was all come from the Ship, and I found my whole Quantity had been put on board the Lighter; I sold what was brought ashore upon the Keys, and told the Person who bought it, that I had not so much as I expected I enquired still after what I had lost, and about three Weeks afterwards, Mr. Briggs came and told me, he believ'd he had discover'd my Copper. I went with him to one Mr Gardiner's in Barbican; Mr. Gardiner was not at Home, but I saw the Copper, and took Notice of the Marks D, and D L P, on two Heads; there was six or seven in a Heap. Mr. Briggs said, Mr. Gardiner was a Man of Honour, I might trust him; and that he was sure he would give an Account how he came by them. Next Day I saw Mr Gardiner, and he told me that he bought the Copper of the Prisoner, and that Mr. Hone had bought another Parcel of him. I was obliged to take out a Search Warrant, but knowing the Prisoner's Character, I did not make use of it. Mr. Hone shew'd me the Copper he bought of the Prisoner, and I saw the Mark D on one of the Heads. We then sent for the Prisoner to a Publick House, and Word was brought us, that he was out of Town; but about the latter End of Aug. Mr. Briggs, Mr. Gardiner, Mr. Hone, and myself, met at the White-Lyon Tavern in Aldersgate-Street, and the Prisoner came to us, with a Friend who was to advise him; he own'd he sold Mr. Gardiner and Mr. Hone the Copper, but he did not know the Person he himself bought it of. We allow'd him two or three Days to find this Man out, but he could not, so I took the Prisoner before Sir Richard Brocas, who committed him; he offer'd Bail, I accepted it, and was in Hopes he would have found (by this Time) the Person that he bought it of.</p>

In July last he brought a Piece in his Hand to my Shop, and asked me if I wanted any Barbary Copper; he asked 4 l per Hundred for it; I said he must leave it for me to try, for some of this Barbary Copper proves very bad: He left me two Heads and they prov'd indifferent, so I-gave him 4 l. per Hundred, and took a Receipt for the Money: I think there was about 300 l. weight, and I did not observe any Marks upon it, nor did Mr. Briggs, or Mr. Marcon shew me any; but the Copper which Mr. Marcon claim'd, was the same I bought of the Prisoner. The Discovery was made by my telling Mr. Briggs and Sir

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080005"/> that I had lately bought a little Parcel of Barbary Copper for 4 l. per Hundred. Sir Thomas said, if you have bought but a small Quantity, it is very likely it was stolen. I said, I had bought about three Hundred Weight, that it lay open in my Shop, and I knew who I bought it of.</p>
<p>Q. I ask you, whether Winston used to deal in Copper, and in such Quantities?</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. A Man in Trade may take Copper for Goods.</p>
<p>Q. Does he deal in casting Things of great Weight.</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. No, small Things; he is a Candlestick-Founder. I was one Day at Mr. Hone's, and I saw he had got some Barbary Copper, and, says I, what, have you bought Barbary too? What did you give for it? Why, says he, the same Price that you did; I bought it of the same Man, but I thought he had no more.</p>
<p>Councel. Then he did not care to let you know what Quantity he had got.</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. I did ask him how much he had got, and he told me he had about three Hundred Weight; I thought I had bought all he had. When he met us at the White-Lyon Tavern, he told us, he had it of a Man that bought Candlesticks of him to the Value of 7 l. and who was a perfect Stranger to him. I said, that is stranger still, that you should buy so much Metal, and sell so many Candlesticks to a Man you knew nothing of. I asked him how the Man brought it, he said the Man came himself with Porters (or a Cart, I cannot remember which) and took the Goods he bought away with him. He was asked, whether there was any Bills of Parcels or Receipts given, and he said no, there were none at all; he said he would endeavour to find out the Man, and had his Liberty for three Weeks or a Month to do it, but at last he said he could not do it, and he believed he should hear no more of him.</p>
<p>Councel. Is it usual for People to hawk such a Weight of Copper about with Porters, or in a Cart?</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. No.</p>
<p>Councel Pris. Is it not usual for Founders to buy unwrought Copper for the Purposes of their Trade?</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. Yes.</p>
<p>Council. And of Persons that come about with it?</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. I can't say so, but it is usual to take it in Truck for Goods.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I ask Mr. Gardiner, whether, when my Servants carried the Copper to his House, he did not bid them go and bring him more?</p>
<p>Mr. Gardiner. No, I did not; his Servant's brought me the Copper and he was with them, and took the Money for it; and I have his Receipt for it.</p>
<p>Mr. Hone. The 27th of July last, the Prisoner brought me a Piece of Barbary Copper, and asked me to buy it. I said it was generally bad but if he would leave it for me to try it, if it proved good, I told him I would give 4 l 8 s. per Hundred for it. He left a single Head with me, about a Quarter of a Hundred, and I sent to Mr Gardiner to know the Price of Copper, for I did not know myself; he sent me Word the Price was about 4 l per Hundred; so when the Prisoner came, I said I had over-bid myself, and that I would not give more than 4 l. a Hundred. He took 4 l. and I bought 3 hundred and a half. He told me he had sold Goods to the value of 7 l 4 s. and took this in Payment for them. I had us'd a good deal of it, before Mr. Marcon apply'd to me for it, but he shew'd me the Marks upon what was left, tho' I should not have seen the Mark D upon it, if I had not call'd for a Brush and clean'd it. I have known the Prisoner these five Years, and I know 'tis usual for him to take Brass and Copper from the Brasiers in Truck for his Work, and we thought him a fair dealer.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you, he had sold some of this Copper to Gardiner?</p>
<p>Mr. Hone. Not at first; he did afterwards. At the White-Lyon the Prisoner said, the Man he bought it of, was a Stranger to him, and that he waited at his Shop, while he received the Money of me to pay him for it.</p>
<p>Councel. I would ask you, if it is usual to buy Copper in this manner?</p>
<p>Mr. Hone. We all of us have sometimes Metal which we can't use our selves. We have it commonly brought to our Shops. I never heard but that the Prisoner was an honest Man.</p>
<p>Mr. Briggs. I never heard any thing to the contrary before. Mr. Marcon having lost Copper, and Mr. Gardiner telling me he had bought some, I carried Mr. Marcon to Mr. Gardiner's to see it. He told us Mr. Hone's, had bought some of the same. So we went to Mr. Hone's, and sent for the Prisoner, 2 or 3 Nights together, but he was not at Home: At last he came with one Renshaw, who said he knew the Porters to be all Rogues, for he had been among them, and that it might be stole by them. Mr. Marcon allow'd him Time to search after the Man he bought it of; but at last he said he could make no Discovery, and bid us Defiance. Such parcels of Copper are not usually sold to Founders, in the Manner this was Sold, but by Merchants and Factors.</p>

When I came to him, he told me he had some Barbary Copper to dispose of, and if I would buy it, he would take some of my Goods. I did not understand the Worth of it, so I went to Mr. Hone's, and Mr. Gardiner's, to know what they would give for it. I left a Piece with Mr. Gardiner to be try'd, and he sent me Word in the Afternoon, that he would give but 4 l. per Hundred. I gave the Man I had it of 3 L. 18 s. and sold it for 4 l. The Man had three dozen Pairs of Candlesticks, and gave me 4 s. a Pair.</p>

He bespoke three dozen Pairs of Candlesticks, at 4 s. a Pair; after this he brought the Copper, and my Master told him, if he would call again, he would let him know what he could give him for it: Then he carry'd it to Mr. Hone's, and the Man that brought the Copper was to have some Money, and some of our Goods for it. Three Days after he had agreed for the Candlesticks, he sent this Copper (at twice) to our Shop by two Porters; each of them went twice back: My Master and the Man weigh'd it, and my Master set down the Weigh: in a Paper, but I did not weigh it, nor see the Weight. He was a Sea-faring Man in brownish Cloaths, and Buttons of the same Colour, middle siz'd, and had on a bob Wig. He brought it in about Two o'Clock in July last, but I can't remember the Day.</p>

My Master and I, and my fellow 'Prentice, weigh'd it at several times.</p>
<p>Q. Was Parkin (your fellow 'Prentice) by, when it was weigh'd?</p>

<p>Q. Did the Man that sold it, stay 'till your Master came back?</p>
<p>Jones. Yes; he staid a great while! but when my Master came back, they agreed about the Price. Mr. Hone said it was worth 4 l. and my Master gave the Man 3 l. 18 s.</p>

<p>Jones. In Papers, and then put into a Bag.</p>

I have had it brought to my Shop by Jews, and Fellows unknown, but I would never trouble my self for 2 s. a Hundred Profit. I have sold Candlesticks that have come to 10 Guineas, and never book'd them: And I have had 20 Pounds worth of Irish Half-pence, I have weigh'd them: And where do you live, says I? Why, if you'll buy them you may, and if you won't, we'll take them away. Barbary Copper, - 'tis hawk'd about, I have bought some To-day, I know nothing how 'tis come by.</p>

He told me the Spoons had been there before, and I must take what they had before leat upon them. After I had given him the Money, he went to Sea. - Oh! no, no, he was not gone to Sea, but was up and down. - He told me he was going to Sea with Captain Massey, but the Captain went without him He told me he had sold a Tankard in Whitechapel, and I must go with him there When we came to the Silversmith's, Wells told him I had pawn'd four Spoons, and desired his Man to go with me and redeem them, and then they should be sold to him.</p>
<p>Q. How long was this after you had pawned them?</p>
<p>Spratley. God Almighty bless you; I don't know, about four or five Months I believe. I was to have a Crown of the Money, that I was indeed. The Silversmith could not send any Body with me then, but next Morning his Man and I went to redeem them, and the Pawnbroker sent for a Constable and charged him with me, and carried me to an Alehouse in Bunhill-Field, where

There was in the Bundle a Shift and some Aprons, and a colour'd Apron next the Child, which was a Female, and which the Prisoner own'd to have been hers. She confess'd she had given Eldridge the Bundle to keep for her, and had ordered her to let no Body see it.</p>
<p>When she was going before Justice Bulstrode, I asked her if she had made a Provision for it, and she said, No, she had not, for she concealed it, and intended it should be concealed.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask her if it was born alive?</p>

<p>Defence. The Child was still-born, and never was alive in this World. I was delivered of the Child in my Service where I liv'd, and I call'd out, but nobody heard me, so as all was over and the Child was dead, I did not think of telling any Thing about it.

When I had rid a little Way down the Lane, Horsenail (who was with them on a Grey Horse) came up and turn'd on my Horse's Buttock. I went gently on, and he brush'd past me and got before me; Sir, says he, you must deliver your Money; another of them said, By G - d, Sir, if you stir, I will blow your Brains out. Horsenail (who stood before me) had a Pistol, and he who was behind me held another to my Head. I had two or three Pistols about me at once, and looking behind me I saw the fourth Man stop a Gentleman in our Company under an Oak Tree, they took him to be my Servant because he had some Venison behind him, and was about twenty Yards behind me. I put my Hand in my Pocket and pulled out the Silver and these Pieces, which I gave to Horsenail. There was four of the Men in all, but I cannot swear to either of the Prisoners; one of them had his Face disguis'd, but the Face of him that robbed me, was as bare as mine is now. I believe they are the Men, because some of my Pieces were found upon them. I gave them thirteen or fourteen Shillings in Silver, and a Silver Moidore, three Copper Pieces, and another Silver Piece, and another Shilling. These are the 3 Pieces which were taken from me; one Silver Piece and two Copper Pieces besides; these I put into the Man's Hand that robbed me among the Silver, the rest of the Money he took out of my Pocket; then the Man who was behind me said, he must search me. D - n it, says the other, he never rides without a Watch, look for it. I pulled up my White Waistcoat to get to my Pocket, and pulled out five Guineas and two Half Guineas. D - n it, says the other, look for his Watch, and he felt all round me. Sir, says he, I must take a little more care, and he felt all about me, and took a Nutmeg and a Key; nay, he took every Thing from me but the Part he could not take. I beg'd they would not meddle with the Lady;
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080010"/> no, says he, if any one meddles with her, I'll shoot him through the Head; and he bid her ride before, but she stood still. When they put their Hands into my Breeches, I began to swear at them. Pray don't swear, says one of them, there's nobody shall use you ill, we shall only take all the Money you have; then he put his Hand into another Pocket where the Ticket was, and the five Guineas, and the Nutmeg, and the Key: The Gentlemen who was behind could not make his Mare stand still for want of her Company, on which Account they threatned to shoot him. When they had robbed me, they went to him and searched his Pockets; d - n him, said they, he is no Footman, we must search him. When they had done, they cry'd, Now don't say we have us'd you ill, and d - n you, if you had had a Bushel of Arms, they would not have signify'd a Half-penny to you. I knew one of them, and when he was taken I knew him again.</p>
<p>Wager. Mr. Lewis is not certain that Horsenail was one of the Company that robbed him; when he came to New-Prison he said he knew Baker, but that he never knew me in his Life.</p>
<p>Mr. Lewis. Baker has liv'd in our Parish ten or twelve Years, he was behind with the other Gentleman about twenty Yards from me. He did come up with the rest of them to me, but he presently turned back and went to take Care of the Gentleman behind me.</p>
<p>Q. Can you say you remember any Thing of Wager's Voice?</p>
<p>Mr. Lewis. I believe them to be the Men, but Voices differ much.</p>
<p>Baker. Mr. Lewis at New-Prison said, he should have known my Voice if he had heard it a Mile off.</p>
<p>Thomas Walker I was in Company with Mr. Lewis and my Sister the same Time; we were attacked by four Men on Horseback, one of them rid up to Mr. Lewis, but my Sister being forward; he turned his Horse quick upon him, and asked him for his Money, presenting a Pistol at the same Time. Another of them came up and said, If he stirr'd he would blow his Brains out. I was behind them, and the Mare I rode not standing still for want of her Company, one of them came to me and robb'd me under an Oak Tree, about twenty Yards Distance from Mr. Lewis. D - n him, said one of them, He pricks his Mare, shoot him through the Head, so one of them staid with me while the others robb'd Mr. Lewis, and prevented my riding back. When they had done with Mr. Lewis, they took about ten or twelve Shillings from me.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Lewis turn back to ride towards you, when they threatned to shoot you?</p>
<p>Mr. Walker. Yes, he turn'd his Horse's Nose to my Mare's, to make her stand still. After they had robb'd us they said, Now have not we us'd you like Gentlemen? D - n you, be gone about your Business and don't look back. I endeavour'd to conceal my Watch in my Hand, but hearing them say that Mr. Lewis had hid his Watch in his Hand, I slipp'd it into my Coat Pocket and so I sav'd it, this was done in the Washy-Lane, and they all rid off towards Kentish Town. I can't say I know any of the Men, I was then very much surpriz'd, and the Man that robb'd me hung down his Head under the Boughs. one of them had disguis'd his Face, either with a Mask, or with Crape. I really believe the Prisoners are the Men, but I will not Swear to them. Baker's Coat I took Notice of; he had then such a plush Coat on under a riding Coat.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any Reason to believe, that the Man who is a Witness, was one of the Company?</p>
<p>Mr. Walker. The Evidence, Horsenail, I believe, was the Person that robb'd Mr. Lewis.</p>
<p>Mr. Lewis. I know him to be one; for he was some time searching me for my Watch, and felt all over my Breeches, and every where, where he might feel.</p>
<p>Wager. I never saw him before in my Life but in New Prison, and he there declar'd he did not know me neither.</p>
<p>Baker. The Gentleman said in New Prison, he did not know me.</p>

About 6 o'Clock, (or a little later) in the Evening, we set out from thence, towards Battle-Bridge: We met some People on the other side the Turnpike, next London, and we robb'd them. Several People coming from Barnet Races, we stopp'd altogether, and robb'd them likewise; but we had robb'd some People before we came to the Turnpike. There were a Dozen (I believe) in Company coming from the Races, and tho' I cannot say we robb'd them all, yet I robb'd one, and they robb'd some of the rest. We were then going Home directly to Hornsey-Lane all in Company together. Eadey was on Foot when we set out, but we took a Horse from one of the Company we robb'd, and then we were all mounted. In returning Home we pass'd Mr. Lewis;
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080011"/> and Baker said to me. D - n you there's your Mark; then I turn'd back and stopp'd Mr. Lewis; and Wager came up to the Head of his Horse directly, and assisted me in robbing him, by holding (his Bridle in one Hand, and presenting a Pistol in the other) I had a Pistol in my Hand when I stopp'd him; and I was the first that spoke to him. Sir, says I, you must stop; I must have your Money; then Wager came up to his Horse's Head to assist me. Gentlemen, says Mr. Lewis, don't use me ill; you shall have my Money ! And pray don't use the Lady, ill! No, says I, if any Body offers to use her ill, I will shoot them thro' the Head; so I search'd Mr. Lewis, and took from him, - I can't tell what directly, because we had been taking Money from others, but I believe - to the best of my Knowledge, it was about 6 l. in Gold and Silver, and those pocket Pieces which lye in Court. These 2 Pieces I gave to Mr. Barnes, when I was in Bridewell.</p>
<p>Mr. Barnes. These are the Pieces I had from him there.</p>
<p>Q. Did any of you touch the Lady?</p>
<p>Horsenail. No, no body at all.</p>
<p>Q. Was any body in Company with Mr. Lewis beside the Lady?</p>
<p>Horsenail. Yes a Man, that we took to be the Footman; and I said don't rob the Footman. He was at some Distance behind Mr. Lewis, and Baker staid with him; he did not care to come up to us, because Mr. Lewis knew him.</p>
<p>Q. Did Baker take any Notice that he knew Mr. Lewis?</p>
<p>Horsenail. Yes, he did, when he said, D - n you there's your Mark, and therefore he staid behind with the young Man.</p>
<p>Q. Did Baker give that as a Reason why he would watch the young Man?</p>
<p>Horsenail Yes, my Lord, he did.</p>
<p>Q. Who robb'd the young Man?</p>
<p>Horsenail. Baker did. I saw him have the Money in his Hand, after we had robb'd Mr. Lewis; and he told us, he had got about 7 s. from him. When we had done with them, I wish'd them a good Night, and said we had used them handsomely, and I hoped they would use us the same; for we had not threat'ned them any farther than their Money.</p>
<p>Q. After you had got your Booty, where did you meet.</p>
<p>Horsenail. We went to the White Lyon in Hornsey-Lane, and there we shar'd the Money; the whole Plunder of the Day.</p>
<p>Q. How much did you divide a-piece?</p>
<p>Horsenail. About fifty Shillings each our Dividend came to. I had two; Baker had the Silver Piece which Mr. Lewis asked for when I was in New-Prison, and when I was before Justice Midford; I had the Julius Caesar's's Piece, and the Carolus XII. of Spain, but Baker had the Silver Moidore. When Mr. Lewis asked Baker for it, he told him it was gone to be gilt. The third Piece was lodg'd in Ralph Guy's Hands, who keeps the White Lyon in Hornsey Lane.</p>
<p>Mr. Lewis. I had it from thence.</p>
<p>Horsenail. I have at present a Key belonging to Mr. Lewis, which we took among the rest of the Things; this is the very Key. [pulling out a Key]</p>
<p>Mr. Lewis. This is the Key of my private Bureau, where I keep my Books; this was in my Pocket with the Gold and the Nutmeg. Horsenail told me had it, but resolv'd to keep it till the Day of Trial.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make a Discovery of your Companions before you was Apprehended, or afterwards?</p>
<p>Horsenail. I was taken up on another Account about six Weeks ago, and I voluntarily discovered this Robbery before Justice Midford. I am sorry either, or any of us, should be so unhappy as to be in this State, but the Prisoners were indeed at the committing of the Fact. I have been concerned with them in this Way, but since the 24th of August last.</p>
<p>Wager. I don't doubt but Mr. Lewis was robbed, and suppose he was robbed by Horsenail and his Gang; but I desire to know, whether he can produce any Gentleman of Credit who has seen us together on the Road?</p>
<p>Q. What, do you expect he should produce some Body who saw you together in a Robbery?</p>
<p>Wager. No, my Lord, only with Regard to this Robbery.</p>
<p>Horsenail. Well then, I sent two Subpoena's, one to Edward Tow, who let us through the Turnpike, and the other to Ralph Guy, who keeps the White-Lyon. Tow let us through the Turnpike, and knew what we were upon; he said, indeed, he was sorry for our Courses.</p>

<p>Guy. I have seen them together, but I can't say I saw them together, the Day this Robbery was committed; they have been together at my House, sometimes; but I have no Acquaintance with any of them: Baker I have known these 2 or 3
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080012"/> Years, he lived with a Gentleman whose Horses I us'd to Shoe. I have seen them together several Times, this last Summer together; they have drank at my House together.</p>

<p>Guy. Why - one of-them gave it me, and bid me give it my little Boy. - I had it from Eadey, I think it was.</p>
<p>Q. Who gave you the other Pocket-peice?</p>
<p>Guy. I had it from Baker.</p>
<p>Horsenail. You was present when we shar'd the Plunder.</p>
<p>Guy. I was always counted an honest Man. - I did see them telling Money, but I can't say what they were about. I saw them telling Money from one to the other, - there was Half-pence and Silver, I saw no Gold, - I did not I assure you.</p>
<p>Horsenail. He knew of our going out, and when we came back he said it was pretty well, considering it was late when we went out. Did not we lie at your House that Night?</p>
<p>Guy. They were at my House all Night.</p>
<p>Lewis. One of the Copper Peices I lost, had a String in it, I ask'd about it, and Guy told me he had cut the String off.</p>
<p>Guy. I had this Piece (with the String) of Baker, he gave it me, and at the same Time there was Wager, Baker, Horsenail, and Eadey, together.</p>
<p>Horsenail. So we were; and you saw the silver Moidore in Cockey's Hand.</p>
<p>Guy. No, - it was in Baker's Hand; but you were all Four together. Wager was Arrested for Debt; he got from the Bailiffs and was conceal'd at my House, but that was some Time before I saw this young Man. [Horsenail]</p>
<p>Wager. Why Horsenail used to bring me Money, while I was conceal'd at your House.</p>

I kick'd up his Heels, and took from him a Pistol, a Blunderbuss and a Dagger. My Companions seiz'd his Landlord, but he got from them, and is run away. I asked Baker where Cockey was, and he inform'd us, he was in the Barn, about 10 yards from the Place where we took him. The Barn-door was Lock'd, but I threw it off the Hinges; we search'd about, and in the Rafters over the Horses, there we found Cockey cover'd with the Hay. We brought him down and Hand-cuff'd him. Baker then asked if Horsenail was taken, and one of the Company told him yes; upon that Wager quarrell'd with Baker, and ask'd what Business he had to Betray him. But D - n me, said he, I don't care, we shall both be Jamm'd together. Twas as much as we could
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080013"/> do to get Wager Home, though I made a Man ride behind him, for he was very unruly, pulling the Horse about, making Motions with his Hands at every Body that it came near him, as if he was firing a Pistol, crying Phoo! Baker was very quiet, and only said that Horsenail was a Rogue, and deserved to be hang'd as much (or as well) as they did; but Cockey was very uneasy, and curs'd and swore bitterly, on the Road, and when we got to Town, the Mob was so great that I could not carry him directly to the Justices for fear of a Rescue, so I got them with much Difficulty to New-Prison, and the next Morning the Justice went to the Prison and examined them there, what they said upon their Examination I know not, for they were examined before I came down. Mr. Lewis, and I, and Baker, afterwards drank a Pint of Wine by ourselves, and Baker said to Mr. Lewis, I know I am a dead Man, for I had your Silver Moidore, 'tis now gone to be guilded, but if the Man that has it don't give it you, I'll have him punished. He own'd to us that he was the Man that cry'd Hey! and that Mr. Lewis cry'd Hallo!. He told us likewise that he had said to Horsenail, he would not have Mr. Lewis robb'd, because he knew him.</p>
<p>Q. Did he own to you who was in Company?</p>
<p>Barnes. Yes; he said Wager, and Horsenail, and Eadey, were in Company together. When I went to this Guy's House, he confess'd they all had been together, and had often lain at his House; and told us, that Cockey Wager had done so many audacious Things, that he had forbid him his House.</p>
<p>C. The Gentlemen in the Commission will prevent his keeping a Publick House to harbour Highwaymen.</p>
<p>Wager. I had been up by Four o'Clock that Morning, to get betimes to Waltham Market; when I came back I was weary, and went up to rest me on the Hay, but about 8 o'Clock I was surpriz'd, hearing a Noise in the Field, and hearing them breaking the Door; so I got up, and said, what is it you want? D - n you, we want you, and we'll shoot you through the Head. I had no Arms, and came down directly</p>
<p>Barnes. When I took him down and hand-cuff'd him, he swore at Baker and d - n'd his Blood, and told him if he had his Arms, and had been at Liberty, he would have drove us all to the Devil</p>

Barnes and I had a Warrant to apprehend Horsenail on Suspicion of a Robbery; so we took him and carried him to the Vine-Tavern, and afterwards to Justice Midford, there he made a Discovery of several Robberies, and among the rest, of this Fact, in which he said Wager, Baker, and Eadey, were concern'd. He told us where we might find Wager and Baker if we went directly. We set out between 11 and 12 at Night, there was Barnes, and I, and

According to our Directions we went to the Waggon-and-Horses by Hound's-Field near Endfield-Wash, and from thence to this Barn, where, if we found such and such Horses, we might depend upon the Prisoners being there If we found them not here, we were to go to one Howlet's, near King's-Oak. We put up our Horses at the King's-Oak, and were directed to the Barn, the People telling us if we went early in the Morning, we should certainly find them there, but if we were not upon them betimes, they would be gone to rob the Butchers on Rumford Road. We came to the Field where the Barn stood, and saw Baker coming down with his Landlord. Barnes went up to Baker and seized him, but the Landlord got away. Barnes took a Dagger out of his Breast, and one or two Pistols out of his Pocket. We ask'd where Cockey was; by G - d, says he, he's in the Barn. We search'd a Hay-Mow that was in the Barn, and God forgive me, I swore bitterly all the Time. Over the Horses there were some Poles laid, and a Truss or two of Hay upon them; here I search'd but could not find him. Barnes swore, and said, go up on the other Place; I did, as soon as I got up, he (Cockey) cry'd out for Mercy. But I have over-shot myself; my Lord, I should have told you, that Horsenail having informed us that Baker carried a Blunderbuss about him, we ask'd him for it, and he told us it was on his Right Side in a Pocket, and there we found it. There were some Expressions dropp'd, as if Horsenail was a Rogue, and deserv'd to be hang'd.</p>
<p>Q. Was Wager angry with Baker for betraying him?</p>
<p>Griffith Yes, he call'd him Dog, I think, and said, if he had had Baker's Arms, he would not have been taken. He might say something likewise of being jamm'd together, but I did not take Notice of it. We had a very hard Struggle with the Mob to get them to Prison. Justice Midford came to examine them in Goal, but as he had been there a considerable Time before I came, I can give no particular Account of their Examinations, but Baker afterwards desired to speak with Barnes by himself, and the Discourse that
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080014"/> passed between them was much as Barnes has related, for I listen'd at the Door, and heard all that passed.</p>
<p>Baker. I never said I was concerned in this Robbery, for I knew nothing of it; and Mr. Lewis said before the Justice, that he did not know me.</p>

Past 12 o'Clock, between the 25th and 26th of October last, Barnes, Griffiths, and Rose, came to my Bed-side and told me I must get up, they had something for me to do which would be for my Good. I went with them to Waltham-Abbey and to King's-Oak As we were going to this Barn, we met Baker and his Land-lord in the Field. Barnes seiz'd Baker, and took from him a Pistol, a Hanger, and a Blunderbuss. Baker told us Cockey was in the Barn; we search'd the Hay, and thrust the Hanger into it; at last I perceiv'd him to stir, and I cry'd out, Here he is! and Griffths got up and took him. As we were bringing them to the King's Oak, Wager said, D - n you, you Dog (to Baker) could you not be content to be hang'd, without me, and called him very scurvilous Names; but if I am hang'd, says he, I have the Pleasure of having you hanged with me. Baker only shook his Head, and gave him no scurvilous Language again.</p>
<p>Wager. I am sure I behaved myself very indecently, - decently I mean, and what they all say is entirely false As soon as they had taken us they said, now there was 280 l for us; and one of them said, he would get himself a Marshal's-Court Officer's Place with his Part of the Money.</p>

Barnes and Griffiths came to my House to be informed how they might take Horsenail, for he liv'd just over-against my House; I knew he was at Home, so we watch'd for him and took him. Eadey and Wager us'd to come to and from Horsenail's Lodgings frequently. I was at the taking of Baker by Horsenail's Directions; and after we had taken the Hanger and the Pistol from him, we asked for a Blunderbuss, which Horsenail told us he generally carried about him; he readily told us it was in his Great Coat Pocket, and there we found it. Wager curs'd and swore bitterly all the Way we brought him along, d - ning Baker for a cowardly Dog, and telling him if he had his Arms, he would have made a devilish Sweep among us. One of our Company asked him, whether that would not have been a very barbarous Crime? No, says Wager, 'tis all one for that, I could but have been hang'd.</p>
<p>Wager. I liv'd with Mr. Howlet seven Weeks, he is a Butcher, and he bid me get up that Morning and dress the Goods for Waltham Market, when I had done I was a-tyr'd, so I got up in the Hay-Loft to sleep; these Fellows came in, and said, G - d d - n you, if you speak a Word, we'll shoot you through the Head; I told them they were welcome to lay hold of me, so I surrendred and went very peaceably with them to New Prison. As to what they have said about my cursing Baker, with humble Submission, there's none of them lives in Credit; Rose keeps a bad House, and the others are Black-Guards. I hope your Lordship will consider what they have said. I have no Witnesses now, they were all here Yesterday.</p>

I put my Hand in my Pocket and gave them ten or twelve Shillings, and said, if they must have it, there it was. I kept Six-pence in my Right Hand, and desired them to leave me that to pay the Turnpike. I am positive to the two Prisoners, for I look'd at them four or five Times, and they did not check me. Cockey took the Money, I delivered it into his Hands, and Baker, when I ask'd for the Six-pence, said, well, well, let him have it. They d - n'd me, and said, I had not given them all, so they searched my Breeches and my Fob, and then they rid away; I am sure I carried the Thoughts of them in my Mind ever since, for they are very notify'd.

<p>Mr. Phillipson. On the 8th or 9th of November, Mr. Emmerson shew'd me the two Sugar Loaves in our Compting House, which he said were sold for 6 d. per lb. They were brought by Mr. Smith of St. Paul's Church yard, and being apprehensive that they were ours, and that they had been stolen, he brought them down to us. We enquired the next Day after one Mrs. Fowles, who had sold these two Sugar-Loaves; I went with a Constable to her House in Carter-Lane. I searched, and found nothing; then I asked her about these Sugar-Loaves, which (I was informed ) she had sold to one Middleton, and by Middleton to Mr. Smith; and I asked her likewise, whether she had not sold Sugar-Loaves to one Humphries, at the Sugar Loaf in Fleet-Street, a Publick House; she said she had seen Sugar-Loaves come into Humphries's House. Upon this I got a Search-Warrant, and went there; I asked him if he would let me search his House; he said, with all his Heart. We went up and search'd and I found 59 Loaves, which I can say are the Property of Sir

He told me Powel would be there that Evening. I said, I would attend his coming: But as I was going home, I remembered I had left my Handkerchief behind me, and returning to enquire for it, while I was there Powel came into the Yard; I asked him how he came by the Loaves he had sold Humphries; he said, very honestly. Says Humphries, you told me they were the Perquisites of several Boilers. After many Words, he confess'd he had them of the Prisoner Windsor, our Boiler, but he said he bought them of him, and paid him for them. I ordered the Constable to carry him to the Baptist's-Head Tavern, and I sent for Mr. Emmerson; I cannot say what pass'd between Mr. Emmerson and him, but by what pass'd I saw that Windsor was concerned, and had confess'd it. About Six o'Clock at Night Sir William's Son. and I went again to the Tavern, and then Windsor call'd us out into the Yard, and said, he had

He said he us'd to take them out of the Sugar House early in the Morning, and carry them to his own House, from whence Powel always fetch'd them away in the Evening. This Powel, he said, had been an old Acquaintance of his, and meeting him in Fleet-Street, he asked him to give him a Bit of Sugar to sweeten his Tea; in about a Fortnight after he gave him a Bit, and at different Times he own'd he had taken about fifty whole Loaves; that Powel had receiv'd them all, and that he never had receiv'd above two Guineas and a Half of him for them all.

Then I went to Powel, and press'd him to tell the Truth; he confess'd he never had any Sugar of any other, that he had receiv'd all from Windsor, and had deliver'd them all to Humphries; he said he gave Windsor 2 s. 6 d. a Loaf, and sold them to Humperies for 2 s. 8 d.</p>

<interp inst="t17361208-18-person184" type="surname" value="Humphries"/>

<interp inst="t17361208-18-person184" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . The Prisoner Powel has us'd my House every Day these two Years. About six Months ago he brought some Sugar-Loaves to my House (I keep the Sugar Loaf Alehouse in Fleet street) and he asked me to buy them. He told me they were the Perquisities of Boilers, that he sold them for them, and got some little Matter by them himself. I took him for an honest Man, and bought several of him, and gave him 6 d. a lb. We always weigh'd them at a Chandler's Shop in Bride-Lane. After this I got them for a Guinea every seven Loaves, and seven Loaves generally weigh'd 46 or 47 lb. sometimes 48 or 49 lb. sometimes he told me he brought them from Whitechapel, and (says he) 'tis a very great Way. He told me I might have a Quantity of them for ready Money, as many of them as I would, and I did intend to go about them as they came so cheap, but Business prevented we.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you where you was to have them?</p>
<p>Humphries. I did intend to ask him, and did resolve to go.</p>
<p>Q. Did he name any Person he had them from?</p>
<p>Humphries. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did he never name Windsor?</p>
<p>Humphries. No, he only said he had them from Boilers as their Perquisites. After he was apprehended, I said to him, You Villain, you have deceiv'd me, you have done a pretty Piece of Work; at last he confess'd he had them from Windsor. We all went to the Baptist's-Head about three or four o'Clock, and Windsor was brought thither too. Windsor cry'd out, Oh! that I should be so bewitch'd! surely the Devil and old Powel bewitch'd me, that I should wrong the best of Masters! I! that have had a Sufficiency to live upon with them - ! Powel heard this, and I call'd him old Villain! and old Rogue!, but he simper'd and smil'd. - Why says he, do you take me to be a Rogue! why did not you tell me a Lye, when you told me they were brought from White-chapel, says I. Yes, says he, I did. For what End, says I. For a Colour, says he. Oh! says I, 'tis a very fine Colour indeed. I ask'd him afterwards the same Question, and he made the same Answer.</p>
<p>Q. What would have been the Price of Sugar, if you had bought it out of the Shops?</p>
<p>Humphries. As I am on my Oath, I did not know, till the Day the Warrant came out against Fowkes and myself.</p>
<p>Q. How many Loaves had you of Powel?</p>
<p>Humphries. I had at several Times fifty-nine and sixty-three, and I sold them again for 6 d. per Pound.</p>
<p>Q. When you bought them for a Guinea every seven Loaves, and those Loaves weigh'd but 48 lb. that was not above 3 s. Profit; had you no more Gain upon them?</p>
<p>Humphries. I never made any Thing private; I sold them in Publick, and Powel brought them in through the Tap-House, he would not come through the House, because he would not look like a Porter.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell People how you came by them?</p>
<p>Humphries. Yes, every Body; I told them I had them of Powel, and that he had something for selling them for the Sugar-Boilers.</p>
<p>Q. How many had you from Powel in all?</p>
<p>Humphries. In six Months I believe I have had 471; I believe it is six Months since I began to buy of him. Some I bought at 6 d. per lb.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="173612080017"/> and some I gave 21 s. the seven Loaves. I sold sixty-three to Mr. Watson; I had told him what I gave for them, and he bidding me 6 d. per lb. I said he should have them</p>
<p>Q. This Man was the proper Person to have been prosecuted.</p>

I asked Powel what he gave for them, and he told me 2 s. 6 d. or 3 s. a-piece: I said, surely you may remember the Price, and at last he said it was but 2 s. 6 d. and that he had 2 d a-piece for carrying them In the Compter. Windsor said, he he had never sold Powel above fifty Loaves: says I, Powel charges you with a greater Number. He said if he did, it was not Fact. Then I went to the other Compter to examine Powel. Justice Harwood was with me, and examining him closely, he said, he had given Windsor 18 d. a Loaf, and had sold them for 3 s.</p>
<p>Q. When he said he had bought them for Half a Crown a Loaf, did he speak to any particular Number?</p>
<p>Sir William Chapman. No, he only spoke in general; and the second Time, when he said he had given 18 d. and sold them for 3 s. the Words were general. He said he gave Half a Guinea for seven Loaves, and 9 s. for six.</p>
<p>Mr. Emmerson. I desired to know the Truth of the Matter; and when Powel begg'd for Mercy, I said, if he would be ingenuous and tell the Truth, Mr. Chapman would indulge him, and he might have Mercy. Upon that he confessed he had sold above an Hundred to Humphries, and that he had them all from Windsor, and gave him 18 d. a-piece for them.</p>
<p>Q. Was Mr. Chapman present, when you made these Promises of Mercy to him?</p>
<p>Mr. Emmerson. Yes, and he did not contradict them.</p>
<p>Windsor's Defence,</p>
<p>Sir. William Chapman. When this Thing was discovered, we were all amaz'd, for we thought Windsor a very honest Fellow; nay, we had such an Opinion for him, that when we left working at some of our Sugar-Houses, and consequently reduc'd the Number of Hands which we employ'd, we turn'd away an old Servant, and put him into his Place at this Bake-House at Paul's-Wharf.</p>

<p>Q. At two o'Clock in the Morning they were carrying the Man's Horse away by Vertue of an Act of Parliament! Do you imagine they would have gone off with him, if you had not come up?</p>
<p>Huntley. Yes.</p>
<p>Another Witness. I was there at the same Time; when I came up they were all struggling about the Horse. I bid Owen let the Horse alone; he said, ask no Questions, I will have him, but thro' Assistance, we got him again.</p>
<p>Owen. We had an Act of Parliament to take Horses, and were encouraged by a Justice of Peace. We condemn'd a Horse before Justice Exeter, but a Day or two before.</p>

They had beat the People very much, and would have sworn the Waggons were drawn with seven Horses; but as People of Credit had sworn there were but six, I did not think proper to give them their Oaths, and committed the Prisoners for an Assault.</p>
<p>Q. By what Authority did you do all this?</p>
<p>Owen. By an Act of Parliament.</p>
<p>The Act was read, which enacts, That if any Seizure or Distress is made on Persons travelling with more than six Horses, the Horse so seiz'd shall be deliver'd into the Hands of the Constable nearest the Place where such Seizure is made, safely to be kept till the Person or Persons, who made such Distress, prove the Offence before a Justice of the Peace, who is empower'd (on Proof of the Offence) to order the Delivery of the Horse or Horses so seiz'd, for the Use of the Distrainer.</p>

I was going to lift up my Voice, and to call out aloud, but the Man seized me by the Throat and prevented me. He held me thus, while the Woman opened this Pocket and took a Knife and 3 s. and 1 d. and a Farthing from me. The Man ask'd her, if she had got it, and held me a little while that she might get off; but I followed her to a House in Charterhouse Lane, - I know her to be the Woman.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know the Prisoner to be the Woman?</p>
<p>Lyon. The Lamps gave a good Light, and I followed the Man and she too into the House.</p>
<p>Q. And did these two People who had robb'd you, suffer you to follow them into a House?</p>
<p>Lyon. The Man struggled very hard against my coming into the House; but the Landlord said - let the Gentleman come in: So I went in, and he asked me if I would please to go up Stairs and drink a Bottle of China Ale, and have a pretty Girl. The House is not above 20 or 30 Rods from the Place where I was robb'd, and the Landlord is a Rabbit Man.</p>
<p>Q. So the Man that robb'd you, let you follow him into the House; is this the Case?</p>
<p>Lyon. That is the Case; and that is the Woman that took my Money.</p>
<p>Q. So the Man and the Woman that robb'd you, went into the Rabbit-House, and you followed them into the Rabbit-House.</p>
<p>Lyon. Yes; and I saw four Men and four Women there, so I was glad to get out again; but I went and got a Constable and took them</p>
<p>The Constable. He came to me and said he was robb'd between Smithfield Bars and Charter-house-Lane, and gave the same Account of the Fact, and of what he lost. He desired me to go to this Rabbit House, but I told him there was a Constable and a Headborough lived on each side of the House, and it would be better for him to get either of them to go with him: He desired I would go, and at last I went with him; but going down the Lane, he catch'd hold of the Prisoner and charged me with her. Upon this, Pendall the Rabbit-Man came up, and bid him let the Woman go Did not you come into my House, says he, and drink a Bottle of China Ale? And did not I give you 3 d. out of your Shilling? But at last Pendall said he would give the Prosecutor what he had lost, if I would discharge the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. If he was so positive to the Man and the Woman, why did not he take you to the House, and charge you with the Man?</p>
<p>Constable. The Man was gone, he said.</p>
<p>Q. Pray Mr. Lyon who are you? Have you any Persons here to give an Account of you when you come to take a Life away, and entitle your self to 14 l. I expect something more than this Story.</p>
<p>Defence. This Lyon turn'd upon me in the Street, and pull'd me by the Sleeve, so we came down together to the Rabbit-House, and went up Stairs together; we had a Bottle of China Ale, and I had no more from him than a Groat all but a Farthing. He swears this against me because I would not oblige him, - no says I, if you give me 3 d. three Farthings to make a Whore of, I will keep it to make my self honest</p>
<p>Q. Here, Lyon, was not you in Drink at this Time?</p>
<p>Lyon. No; tis well known I was not I had been at Supper at Mr. Gardner's, at the White-Horse in Castle Alley: I was not up Stairs with her at all.
