I went to Church on Sunday the 22d of August, and when I came back I found my Drawer open, it is a Drawer in a Chest of Drawers; and about two o'Clock this Lad came Home a little fuddled. He had lived with me about three Months. - Mr James (the next Witness) was with him, and he begged Pardon, and said he would never do so any more. - He begged Pardon for being Drunk, for he had not been charged with any thing. - I was asked if I had sent him to receive any Money for me, and I said no: Upon this I went to my Drawer, took the Bag out, and laid the Money on the Table, and there seemed to be a good deal less than there was. I missed a 3 l. 12 s. presently. I could not make him confess any thing, so I carried him before a Constable, and he went to the Round-House. I sent for Mr James and asked him if he knew any thing of it, Mr James said, there was one 3 l. 12 s. two 36 s. Pieces, and four Guineas, which he left in his Hand the Day before at Welsh-Fair . I went to the Boy at the Round-House, and he confessed he pushed back the Lock with a Knife, and took out the Money; he said the Devil told him where the Money was, and that the Devil bid him do it; he own'd the 3 l. 12 s. the two 36 s. Pieces, and the four Guineas , and said that was all he took.</p>
<p>Mr James . I think the 22d of August, I saw this Boy drinking with three or four Carpenters in Welsh-Fair . I was drinking a Pint of Beer, and seeing him throwing his Money about, I asked him what Country-Boy he was, he said he was out of Wales ; I advised him to go Home, he desired me to drink some Ale; perhaps, said he, you may think I cannot pay for this Ale, though my Hat on my Head is not worth Six-pence , yet I can pay for it, and pulled out one 3 l. 12 s. the Boy said he did not care to go Home, for fear his Master should beat him. I said if he would go Home along with me, his Master should not beat him: Said he, I will give you two Guineas. if you will let me go about my Business; no, said I, I cannot do that, then, said he, take it all. - I thought as he was a little in Liquor, his Master would be angry with me, and think I kept him out, so I would not deliver the Money till Mr Clarke came to me. Said Mr Clarke to me, Have you not two Guineas of my Boy's? Yes , said I, I have a great many two Guineas. On Monday Morning he confessed he took four Guineas, two 36 s. Pieces, one 3 l. 12 s.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not open the Drawer, I found it open, and that Man, James, made me drunk.</p>
<p>Q. Can you tell whether the Drawer was locked?</p>
<p>Clarke. I am not certain, I believe it was; I do not know that ever I left it open.

The 29th of July I had been by Water, and when I came Home at Night the Door of the Palace Yard was put to, which used to be open,'tis a Door between Justice Blackerby's House and the Bridge-Office , there's a Bench the Watermen have to sit upon, I saw the Prisoner at the Bar sitting upon it, and somebody else with her behind the Door. 'Tis under the Place where the King goes to the Parliament House, the Bench moves backward and forward; in the Morning I heard a Report that the old Man's House was broke open, and that his Daughters were gone; I believe she lived with her Father (from the Death of her Mother) till the Time this thing happen'd: Thinks I, I do not like this Thing; this young Witness was gone too, and it was told me that his Daughter was got into a Coach in King's-Street, Westminster, with a Horse-Grenadier : The old Man finding his Money gone, cried, What will no Body help me! So I being Constable, I took her up and carried her before Justice Manley, the next Evening about seven or eight o'Clock, and after some Examination, (it was taken in Writing, but not sign'd) she said her Husband, as she called him, was a Horse-Grenadier, and was going with the last Forces to Flanders ; she was going with him, for she was one of the four Women that was to go with the Troop.

I called out for a Light to the Prisoner, who was below, but she brought none, neither did she come up, but some other People came up with more Water. I did not go out of the Room till the Fire was out; when the Fire was quite extinguished, I moved the Bureau from the Wall, for fear of it's setting Fire to the Paper Hangings. Then several Neighbours came up, and a Candle was brought; presently the Desk Part fell down, said I, this is surprizing, it has either been broke open, or was never locked. I looked at it, and the Bolt was shoved back. Soon after this, Mr. Pauncefort came Home. I told him what had happened, he said he had locked his Bureau in the Morning, and left his Money in it, and then he imagined that the Prisoner at the Bar had robb'd him; a Constable was sent for, and she was searched by the Constable ; but he did not find it upon her.</p>

I asked where the Landlord and Landady were; a Woman said, I am Landlady. The Constable and other Officers searched the House, to see if they could find any Weapon wherewith the Murder was committed.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to go to this House?</p>
<p>Josias Lack. Because it was a House of an indifferent Character, and People suspected it: The High-Constable was going there before I saw him. Says the High-Constable to the Woman, Where is your Husband? Says she, he is in the Country, he has been gone three Weeks. - I have no Lodgers; there is no body in the House but my Son, and he
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174209090017"/> is making a Perriwig : She would have called him down, but the Constable chose to go up; and when he came up, the Son was mending a Coat, and the Father was shut up in a Closet. There was a Shirt lay soaking in Water, which was bloody: I believe it was in a Bason in the Room where the Father was. The Son was in another Room up two pair of Stairs. It was asked, How the Shirt came to be bloody; and the old Woman, and all of them said, the old Man was blooded the Sunday before. - They all three said so: And when they came before the Justice, the old Man and his Son both said it was the Sunday was se'ennight before. The Shirt was brought down and looked at, and it was bloody only on the right Arm.</p>
<p>Court. Did you look at the Arm that was bloody?</p>
<p>- Lack . There was a Barber there that did, and he said he had not been blooded so lately as the Sunday se'ennight before. - I did not see any Thing farther than an old Orisice: - It looked white, not red; he seemed very much frightened, but said, he would send for the Man that blooded him, but I did not see him there.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the Body of your Father?</p>
<p>Josias Lack. Yes, there was a great deal of Violence done to him, he was very much abused; he had thirteen or fourteen Wounds, they appeared to be Stabs. There was one on his Left-side, under his Left-Pap; one in his Throat; one under his Right-Ear; one in his Left-Cheek; another by his Left-Eye; another in his Left-Arm, and one or two in his Back. - It was about 10 o'Clock at Night on Monday, Aug . 16. He worked at the Tower, and was going home to Islington. I was called out about 11 o'Clock, and the Body lay in the Road about six or seven hundred Yards from the Turnpike. - He had no Wound on the Right-Arm.</p>
<p>Court. You say, the old Man said he would send for the Person that blooded him. Did he send?</p>
<p>Josias Lack. He said he would; and that the Person lived on Little Saffron-Hill , by Hockley in the Hole: but he did not come.</p>

On Tuesday the 17th of August, the High-Constable sent for me to get a Search-Warrant from Justice Wroth, to search Houses who harbour People of bad Reputation. The first House we went into was the Turk's-Head; the Prisoner at the Bar kept the Turk's-Head at that Time; when we went in, the Woman was asked, Who kept the House: Then she was asked where her Husband was, she said, he had been out of Town three Weeks or a Month. The High-Constable asked her, if she had got any Lodgers, or any body else in the House. She said, there was no body in the House but her Son, and that he was above Stairs, making of a Perriwig. The High-Constable bid her call him down, and she said she would; but before she called him down, said one of the Constables, let us go and see what he is doing of; so I went up Stairs: he was at work, but I cannot tell whether it was upon a Perriwig or a Coat. Then Mr Body, the next Witness, said, here is a Man in the Closet. The Door was shut to, and I thought it was a Door that went into another Room, and there the old Man was bolt upright in the Closet - It had no Window, but was big enough to put a Close-stool, or a two-armed Chair in; and Mr Body pulled him out, and then somebody searched to see if there were any Weapons, but did not find any; there was a Shirt in a Pan or a Bason of Water, or Urine: I have got the Shirt here. It was the Left-Arm then that appeared to be bloody, for the Shirt was turned. I did not see it when it was taken out of the Pan; it was delivered me before the Justice.</p>
<p>N. B. The Shirt was produced, and appeared to be bloody about half way up the Sleeve for the Right-Arm.</p>

<p>Court. Explain yourself as to the Father's being frightened.</p>
<p>Noel. He seemed to be in a Flurry, as if he did not know what he said.</p>

<p>Josias Lack. My Father was not stripped, he was robbed - of a Tobacco-Box, an old Knife, and a Key; and I believe he had about him, between twenty and thirty Shillings, which was lost.</p>
<p>Noel. The Justice desired us to try who the Shirt would fit, and it was tried on the old Man's Wrist, and it would not meet by half an Inch at least, I believe it would hardly meet with a Pair of Buttons.</p>
<p>Coster. These are the Buttons I had in the Sleeves when I wore it.</p>
<p>Noel. There were no Buttons produced before the Justice: He said there, the Shirt was given him by a Nephew, and he had only wore it that Day; and that it was to be altered and made fit for him. - There is no Mark at all upon it - The Son said he was a Perriwig Maker by Trade. - There were two or three Razors in the Room, and two or three Staves that they weave their Hair upon. - It looked as if it had been a Room that a Barber had made use of, but not lately, for the Things did not stand in Order for working.</p>

I went first into the one Pair of Stairs Room on the Left-Hand and found nothing; and then into the one Pair of Stairs Room on the Right-Hand. I went into the other Room again, and saw a Button to a Closet-Door, which was not buttoned. I went to open the Door, but I believe he held it within, because it did not open immediately.</p>

My Lord, when I opened it, there was a Man stood upright in the Closet; said I, What do you do here? Come out. - I was led a little, for I had no Stick nor any Weapon. The old Man said, I am afraid of Bailiffs, that is the Reason of my hiding myself, I am afraid of nothing else. His Shoes were slipped, - they took the old Man down Stairs. - The young Man was mending a Coat, and he said, My Mother keeps the House, I am not afraid of any thing, What is the Meaning of this? Said they, there is a Murder committed, and this is a Search-Warrant, and you must go along with us; said he, I will follow you down. I thought it best that he should go first, and he readily did so. - The Sleeve of the Shirt lay in a Bason of Water, and the Body lay out of it.

<p>Prisoner Miller. Gentlemen, I desire they may be all turned out of Court, and examined seperately, which was granted.</p>
<p>Owen. The Blow stunned me, (she is not taken that gave me the Blow, there were five of them) then I said, Lord, have Mercy upon me, What is this for. I clapped my Hand upon my Pocket in a Minute, and caught that little one's Hand (Miller's) in my Pocket. Said I, Lord, bless me, all my Money is gone; then one snatched my Apron off, and another my Handkerchief, and another snatched my Hat; the 17 s. in Money was tied up in a Rag.</p>
<p>Miller. My Lord, please to ask her whether she was drunk or sober.</p>
<p>Owen. I drunk! I thought I should have been murdered. God keep me from such People. So I run away, crying, into a little House, for to save my Life. I went to my Sister, and told her of it, who lives just by; and some of the People said, they knew that little short Body, and she was taken up directly. I went to the Watch House, and they asked me if I knew her? Yes, said I, that is the Woman that put her Hand in my Pocket. Said I, What have you done with my Money? She cursed and swore, and abused me sadly, and struck me before the Justice. I thought she would have killed me, and the Justice ordered her to be tied down. My Handkerchief was found upon her.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure Swinhy was there?</p>
<p>Owen. Yes and please you, my Lord, God bless you, I know her very well; the little one had a black Eye then; 'tis pretty well now: That Handkerchief is mine, I worked very hard for it, and that Hat and Apron are mine.</p>
<p>Miller. Ask her if she did not ask for a Dram, and if I did not resent her having one.</p>
<p>Owen. I did not call for any Liquor, God bless you, and please you, my Lord, it is she, if I was to die this Minute, God bless you. - That Woman in the blue Knot, [which was Swinhy ] she was in Company, but I cannot say she did what the others did; - She did not take any thing from me. - I am sure the little one robbed me; God Almighty bless you, I would not tell a Lye for the World: They snatched behind me, and did it so quick, I cannot tell who did it.</p>
