<p>The Prisoner being arraign'd stood mute; the reason of which being demanded by the court, he reply'd, that a considerable sum of money had been taken from by the constable who apprehended him, and unless that was restor'd to him, he was determin'd not to plead. The court then order'd a clause
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174108280003"/> in an act of parliament to be read to him, wherein it is ordain'd, that monies or other effects found upon persons charg'd with highway robberies, shall on the parties conviction, be divided among the persons concern'd in apprehending them; and in case of an acquittal, those effects shall be again restor'd to the parties.</p>
<p>Notwithstanding this the Prisoner still continued obstinate, and the court then inform'd him what would be the consequence of persisting in such a resolution; but he still appearing unconcern'd, the following sentence was read to him:</p>
<p>That he be sent back to the prison whence he came, and there laid in a dark, mean room stopp'd from the light, his back on the bare ground, and nothing upon him save something to cover his nakedness. That his arm shall be stretch'd with a cord soften'd to one corner of the room, and his leg to another, and his other arm and leg shall be serv'd in the same manner. Then shall be laid on his body iron and stone as much as he can bear and more.</p>
<p>The next day he shall have 3 morsels of barley bread without drink, and the day after he shall drink as much of the water next the prison door, except it be running water, as he can drink at three several times; and this shall be his diet till he die.</p>
<p>After this the necessary orders were given, and the executioner sent for to perform the usual office of tying the Prisoner's thumbs before the execution of the sentence; but before that was proceeded upon, the Prisoner pleaded not guilty, and the following evidence was given.</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. On friday the 17th of July last, about 6 o'clock in the evening, I was returning on horseback from Edmonton to London, and to avoid the dust, I took to the lanes, and did not come the great road. At Palmer's Green I first observ'd the Prisoner behind me on a little horse. He was meanly drest, and I took very little notice of him. I was by my self, and he kept following me for near three miles, 'till he came to the new sluice at

I told him, yes; that Newington church was before, and that Islington was a quarter of a mile farther. Upon that immediately his horse's head was close to mine, and with oaths and imprecations he threaten'd my life; at the same time producing a pistol in his right hand, which he held directly to me, and swore he would shoot me dead. I ask'd him what he wanted, and he still threaten'd my life, and took hold of my horse's bridle, and put the pistol to my breast. I ask'd him a second time what he wanted, and he then said he knew I had a charge of money about me, and was determin'd to have it. I was very much surpriz'd to see his pistol in so dangerous a position, for his hand trembled so much, that unless he dropp'd his pistol, he could not avoid drawing the trigger. Upon this I told him I would deliver if he would drop his pistol and behave well: He then did drop his pistol, and said he would behave as a gentleman. I then deliver'd him two guineas and a gold watch, and ask'd him if he wanted any thing farther with me; and he said, I must alight, for he knew I had more money about me. I was unwilling to do that till he gave me his promise that he would not use me ill; and then I did alight, and each of us had our horses bridles in our hands. He then search'd me for more money, but found none, for I had a little silver that he did not take notice of. After all this had pass'd, I ask'd him whether he had done with me: He reply'd he had not, for he must have my horse and whip, and accordingly he did take them, and left me his own horse and a little switch whip in the stead.</p>
<p>Q. What was your horse worth?</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. I gave 15 guineas for it but a little before, and my whip I paid 17 s. for. He likewise took from me a pair of gloves, which were found upon him when he was taken.</p>
<p>Q. Which way did he go then?</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. He took my horse which was saddled and bridled, about 20 yards from me, and then mounted and rode off towards Palmer's Green. I advertis'd my horse the next day, and in about ten days after that, the Prisoner was taken, and I had it again by his directions.</p>
<p>Q. What did the Prisoner say to you?</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. When he was taken I saw him at Justice Chandler's, and I went to him in Newgate two days afterwards, and then he told me my horse was at Mimms Wash. Pursuant to this direction I went out that night at 9 o'clock, and found my horse, saddle, bridle and whip in a stable there, and they were deliver'd to me.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got your watch again?</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. I heard that the Prisoner was at Justice Chandler's and I went to him. This watch was then produced, and I knew it to be mine.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the Prisoner is the man?</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. Yes, I am positive he is the person.</p>
<p>Pris. Did I ever say any thing to you where your horse was?</p>
<p>Mr. Zachary. He confess'd it to persons that came directly to me.</p>
<p>Pris. You ought to have had those persons here then.</p>

<p>Underwood. I had not heard of this robbery; but the people said he was the person that murder'd

I am beadle of Shoreditch parish, and the constable sent for me to bring hand-cuffs for the Prisoner, and I went to Justice Chandler's but did not see him search'd. When the Prisoner was before the Justice, he denied that his name was Cooke, and said that he came from Bromley, and never saw Stratford: upon which the Justice order'd me to go down to Stratford to enquire, and I brought up some of the inhabitants to prove him to be the man; and one of them shook hands with him, but the Prisoner swore he would not shake hands with them, nor would not own them. Mr. Haines sent for me to assist him, and the Prisoner told us he was a gentleman born, and desired to be used as such, upon which we indulg'd him with a coach, and carried him to Justice Chandler's, and then I saw Haines produce the watches.</p>
<p>Pris. I have no body here to speak for me, but must rely on the favour of the court. Mr. Zachary advertis'd the man who robb'd him to be 5 feet 3 inches high, and pock holes in his face, and I am not like the person, for I am 5 feet 7 inches and an half. As to the watches I bought them, and if I had time I would produce the persons whom I bought them of. I came from Birmingham in Warwickshire, and buy and sell watches, and if I had had time I would have made a better defence, but now I must leave it to the mercy of the court.

I then thought there could not be thieves in the house, but however I ran up stairs, and White was gone, I perceived; so I struck a light and went to the street door, and saw him (White) coming in. I ask'd him where he had been? He said he could not sleep, and had been to take a walk: What, says I, do you walk without shoes? He said he was very hot, so I took him in, and told him, he or somebody else had robb'd me, and I took a stick and 'nointed him heartily. After this I set him to work, and got a pipe of tobacco, and watch'd him a little while, and then I call'd up my foreman and went to bed. When I got up again, I order'd 1200 of bolt staves, which I knew the weight of, to be weigh'd over again; and then White desired my foreman to save him, and say there was an hundred weight more than there was. The foreman informing me of this, I told the boy, if my cane was a sword I would run him through, and ask'd him what he had done with the Iron, and he told me, Gray had got them in his house. Upon this I went to Justice Jones and got a search warrant; and when I came to Gray's house there he was sitting with his back against a closet, but I took him from thence, and found 96 lb. of my iron standing upright in the closet before me. When I had found my iron, Gray fell on his knees, and both he and his wife offer'd me a bond of 50 l. to let him go; but I told him he must expect nothing from me but what the law directed.</p>

<p>Mr. Maynard. On the 11th of last month, between 9 and ten at night, I was at supper with some friends at my house, and one of my servants told me a dumb fortune teller was below, who must speak with me. Having a mind for a little diversion I order'd her to be brought up, and accordingly the Prisoner appear'd. When she saw me, she made signs with her fingers that an old servant of mine had robb'd me of 2 pieces of gold; I was very much surpriz'd at an accusation of this sort against a person who had liv'd with me 20 years, and therefore in the Prisoner's presence I went to my
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174108280006"/> closet where I had 11 five guinea pieces. I took out the drawer, and she came behind me, put her hand into the drawer, and before I could stop her, took out a handful. After this she toss'd them into a lady's lap, then upon the table, and afterwards into a little girl's pocket. She then began to speak, and accused my servant again, and I was going to send to a Justice of the peace that moment, but the Prisoner told me my servant had got a false key and robb'd me while I was asleep, and if I would be patient, she would come next morning at 9 clock, and bring the man who made the false key with her, and he would discover all. With some impatience I waited the Prisoner's coming next morning, and my servant was in great trouble at being accus'd in this manner, but the Prisoner not coming according to her promise I suspected her, and on looking over my money I miss'd the 3 five guinea pieces mentioned in the indictment. Upon this I sent a servant of mine with other people in search after the Prisoner, and offer'd a guinea reward to any person that should bring her to justice. On the monday following I heard that the Prisoner had bought a pair of shoes and changed a Queen Ann's 5 guinea piece at Kensington, and after that, by some other intelligence that my servants got, the Prisoner was taken in Drury Lane. This is the 5 guinea piece which the Prisoner changed, and I am positive it is mine.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He gave me a supper, wine, punch and money, and why did he not search me before I left his house?</p>
<p>Mr. Maynard. I had no suspicion of her then.</p>
<p>Prisoner. It is very hard that I could take the money before his daughter's and his house keeper's face.</p>

We gave her a lodging out of charity, and about a fortnight afterward she came again, and then she spoke, and said she wanted to buy a pair of shoes: she desir'd me to lend her my hat to cover her face for fear she should be seen; I did so, and went with her to Mr. Lincham's, where I saw her buy a pair of shoes, and change this 5 guinea piece.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I change a guinea the thursday before the gentleman was robb'd; and did I not tell you I had five more?</p>
<p>Rigley. She did change a guinea at my landlady's, and said she had 5 more in her petticoats beside that which she had changed.</p>

The Prisoner work'd for me for 2 years last past, in harvest-time, but finding him loose, on the 27th of June last I turn'd him away, and on the thursday following, in the night time, my house in the parish of Hampstead was broke open. The next morning I found a very remarkable fork which the Prisoner us'd to work with in my house, and that gave me a suspicion of him, and the saturday morning following I went in pursuit of him. I rode up and down the country a great while to no purpose, and as I was returning home at sunset, I spy'd the Prisoner about a gunshot
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174108280007"/> from me. I immediately rode up to him, and laid hold of him: He ask'd me what was the matter; and I told him he knew what he had done, and I would hang him. After this I took him down to my house, where he was search'd by two of my servants, and my spurs, watch, and 43 s. in money were found upon him. He then confess'd that about 12 o'clock at night he cut the bar of my brewhouse window with this knife, then took out a pane of glass, and got in at the window, and after that open'd the brewhouse door, and went into the kitchen which is adjoining. When he got into the kitchen, he took out a small bureau, which he carried a field or two, and then broke to pieces, and rifled of 44 s. which I had put into it but a few hours before. He told me, when he had done this, he broke open a closet in the kitchen, and took out a pair of silver spurs, and a pair of black mourning buckles; after which he broke open a corner cupboard, from whence he took my watch. When I miss'd my bureau, I order'd two of my servants to look up and down the grounds for it, and we found it in the second field from my house, broke all to pieces, and the papers that were in it flying about.</p>

<p>Counsel. How long had the ship been here before he went on shore?</p>
<p>Stimpson. It might be about 5 or 6 days, and I heard that he was very sick with drinking some flip when he went on shore.</p>
<p>Counsel. Do you know any thing of the making this slip?</p>
<p>Stimpson. Yes, Sir, I made it my self by the Prisoner's directions.</p>
<p>Counsel. Can you remember what you put into it?</p>
<p>Stimpson. There was beer, sugar, and brandy, and he told me what I must put into it was the same as limons.</p>
<p>Counsel. Why did you put any thing else into it?</p>
<p>Stimpson. Yes, Sir, the prisoner gave me a phial of stuff to put into it.</p>
<p>Counsel. How much might there be in the phial?</p>
<p>Stimpson. To the best of my remembrance there was about a small dram-glass full.</p>
<p>Counsel. What colour was it?</p>
<p>Stimpson. It was of a reddish colour, and the Prisoner told me it was of the same nature as limons, but I did not taste it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you taste the flip?</p>
<p>Stimpson. Yes, I drank twice, and it made me vomit very much; and I think it had a sort of bitter taste. - It did not taste sour at all.</p>
<p>Q. How much did you drink of it?</p>
<p>Stimpson. I might drink better than a gill, but I don't think I drank half a pint of it. We had about 3 pints in the whole.</p>
<p>Counsel. Who drank of it besides you?</p>
<p>Stimpson. There was one Davy, another officer, and 2 or 3 more belonging to the ship drank of it; and I afterwards saw Davy vomiting in the hold.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174108280008"/>Q. Were any of the persons that you saw drink of it quite well afterwards?</p>
<p>Stimpson. There was the maid on board the ship ask'd me to let her drink of it, and I never heard her complain.</p>
<p>Q. How long had the liquor in the phial been put into it when she drank?</p>
<p>Stimpson. About a minute or two, and I had not stirr'd it.</p>
<p>Counsel. How came you to know that the stuff in this phial was laudanum?</p>
<p>Stimpson. I never heard that it was; but to be sure it was something of detriment. I told the Prisoner when I was in Yarmouth goal, that it was something more than ordinary; and he said that Alexander, one of the foremast men, went on shore for it and gave it him, and he told me I need not give my information so strong. He said it was a sleeping dose, since I have been in Newgate.</p>
<p>Counsel. Do you think if this flip had been made in the usual manner it would have had this effect?</p>
<p>Stimpson. No, Sir.</p>
<p>Counsel. How came you to get to Yarmouth immediately after the death of Stone?</p>
<p>Stimpson. Mr. Foster the surveyor came on board and examined me in the cabbin about this; and when I came out of the cabbin, the Prisoner bid me go on shore, or else I should come into trouble; and when I came on shore I saw Stone on the half deck by the main shrouds vomiting, but I can't tell whether he drank of the flip or not.</p>
<p>Counsel. How long after the people had been drinking this liquor, did you see Stone?</p>
<p>Stimpson. About 3 hours and a quarter: He was then awake, and was walking sore and ast on the deck.</p>
<p>Counsel. Had you any discourse with the Prisoner after Stone died?</p>
<p>Stimpson. He told me an officer was dead, and that it was reported that capt. Cox's people had been the occasion of his death; and so by his persuasion I went down to Yarmouth.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174108280009"/> did not know my mamma, and then she took me up in her arms, and said she would rip me up with a penknife if I offer'd to cry.</p>
<p>Q. What was done to you when she took you up in her arms?</p>
<p>Parker. She put the knife pretty near my stomach, and said she would rip me up if I offer'd to cry, and then she set me down again. After she had done she put me by a ditch side and ask'd me if I would have a plumb bunn or a plain bunn, and I told her I would have a plain bunn, and while she was gone to fetch it, a gentleman came and lifted me off the ditch, and two little girls went home with me.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember any thing of the man?</p>
<p>Parker. I should not know the man so well as the woman.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lose any thing?</p>
<p>Parker. Yes, sir, a frock, a cap and a knot. The woman pull'd off my frock, and the man took out the pins.</p>
<p>Q. When was this done to you?</p>
<p>Parker. It was done in the field, before they set me on the bank.</p>
<p>Q. Was the man present when the woman first took you up?</p>
<p>Parker. Yes, sir.</p>
<p>Q. Was your frock taken from you before the woman threaten'd to rip you up?</p>
<p>Parker. Yes; I cried after my frock was pull'd off, and she threaten'd to rip me up.</p>
<p>Q. Look at the Prisoner; are you sure she is the woman?</p>
<p>Parker. Yes, I am very sure of it.</p>
<p>Pris. Murphey. Does she know that I was present when the woman first took her up in the street?</p>
<p>Parker. No, not at first.</p>
<p>Pris. Harris. Do you know me, my dear?</p>

She was very positive to the woman, and could swear to her dress, but as to the man she did not know him so well. The girl said the woman was very much disfigur'd with the small-pox; and had on old black shoes, and a blue worsted gown, which very gown she wore when she was taken. As to the man, she described him to be the person that was lying behind the ditch with a handkerchief about his head, while she was sitting among the women in the fields, but she could not recollect his face. The next day, being tuesday, I went to several twopenny lodgings to enquire for the Prisoner, and spent that day to no purpose; upon which I ask'd the child if she cou'd recollect any of the streets the Prisoner had carried her through, for the Prisoner pick'd her up in Bond's stables, crying for the missing of us; and the Prisoner telling her she knew us, and would carry her to Pancras where we were, the child very gladly embrac'd that opportunity to come to us. When I ask'd the child if she could tell which way she went, she recollected Gray's Inn Lane; upon which I carried her up Chancery Lane, and she remember'd the green trees there. I then carried her through Gray's Inn, she did not know that, but as soon as we came into Gray's Inn Lane, she remember'd being led through it by the Prisoner. At the upper end of Gray's Inn Lane, there is a turning goes to Sadler's Wells; I took her that way and she did not know it, but she said, Daddy! there is the sign of the Bottle, glass and bunn, and if she could see that she should know the way. She soon discover'd the bottle, glass and bunn; and said there was a gateway somewhere thereabout through which the Prisoner carried her. When she came to the end of the road she was at a stand, and at last shew'd me the gate and a dunghill, and she told me she remember'd them very well. After the child had shew'd me the place where she was robb'd, I went in pursuit of the Prisoners to the Castle alehouse in Bloomsbury, and enquir'd of the drawer, who gave me the same description of the woman's clothes, as the child had done. I was unsuccessful that day, and could not hear of the Prisoners, but I afterwards got a warrant, and gave it to the landlord of the Castle to execute, and I had not sate above an hour in the house before the Prisoner Harris came in, and the child scream'd out as soon as she saw her. We made her pull off her hat, and the child's cap and topknot were found upon her. Upon this she was carried before Mr. De Veil, and being ask'd how she came by the cap and topknot, at first she stammer'd a little and said she bought them in Monmouth-street, but could not tell of whom, so she was committed for further examination. This was on the thursday, and on the tuesday following, I took the Prisoner Murphey on his master's shopboard, and I expected he would put on the same cloaths he usually wore, but instead of that he took a coat from a bundle of cloaths that were pil'd up for sale. I then took him to the Justices, and at first he strenuously denied being in the fields that day; but at last he own'd that he was drunk, and that having lost his hat and wig, he slept in the ditch with a handkerchief about his head.</p>
<p>Pris. Murphey. Does he not take us up for the sake of the reward?</p>
<p>Mr. Parker. No, by no means, for I did not know there was any reward 'till some time afterwards.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174108280010"/> way to some place - I can't tell what place it was, but I found it was where her father and mother were. The Prisoner Harris ask'd her several questions, and seem'd very willing to conduct her, and accordingly led her away.</p>
<p>Pris. Harris. Are you sure I am the woman?</p>
<p>Hart. Yes, I am sure of it. The Prisoner Murphey was lying asleep on a bank at the side of the ditch at the same time. I am sure it was he, for he desir'd me to take care of his hat and wig, and I tied the handkerchief about his head. He was pretty much in liquor, and when the Prisoner and the child went away he slept on for a little while, and then he got into the ditch and went away, but which way he went I can't tell.</p>

I went into Holborn, and in my way I met him, and when I came back again Mrs Hart told me that the Prisoner Harris was gone away with a child. The Prisoner Murphey presently came up, and laid himself down on the bank with a dirty handkerchief about his head, and after he had slept some time, he got up and went away down the field, and afterwards that same night I saw both the Prisoners together in Southampton Row.</p>
<p>Pris. Murphey. Did you not meet me in Holborn about the hour that the child was robb'd?</p>
<p>Hart. I did meet him in Holborn, but I can't tell as to the hour. I was at the Justices when he was examin'd, and he said he was very much fuddled, and own'd he was in the fields; but he afterwards contradicted himself and said he was not.</p>

<p>Pris. Harris. I was sitting with this woman that sells gingerbread, and the child asking for her father and mother, I led her to the bottom of Red Lion Street, and there a woman said she knew the child and took her away.</p>

On the 12th of July I lock'd up my door and went to a neighbour's house about a quarter of a mile off, where I staid an hour or something better, and when I return'd I did not find my house in the same condition as I left it, for a quarri of glass in the ground room was taken out, and the casement was open. I miss'd 4 s. 4 d. in farthings, and a silver spoon, a paper of pin, 2 s. 6 d. in silver, half a 6 d. broke in two, 2 cap - I can't tell whether they were linen or holland, and a pair of stockings. The Prisoner took them away when she got into the house.</p>
<p>Q. What reason have you to believe so?</p>
<p>Wainwright. She must have some liberty to take them, or how could it be? This man took her as she was coming out of the window, and she own'd it all to him</p>
<p>Isabella Wainwright. I keep a chandler's shop. I and my husband went out, and I fasten'd and barr'd up the house my self, and the window was hasp'd very strong, and was very hard to be got open. There was no glass broke about the place when we went out, and when we came home, the window was broke and the casement was open. The Prisoner was then at my next door neighbour's, and I ask'd her why she did so, and she said she did break open the place to take my goods away.</p>

He beat against the door in a strange manner, and swore he would kill me if I did not get up. I thought it very hard as I had paid for a bed not to be suffer'd to sleep in it, so I put the bed stead against the door to keep them out. I had a sword by me and I drew it, thinking to kill two or three of them, but then considering with myself that I was in a strange place, I thought it best to let them alone; so I put my sword up,

I afterwards took Haines at Clerkenwell, and she confess'd to me that she pick'd Tailor's pocket of his money

That after this they put 21 s. in silver, a moidore, and a half guinea into the bag, and put it again into Tailor's pocket, the doing of which disturb'd and 'wak'd him.</p>
