<p>Q. How do you know it was the Prisoner?</p>
<p>Minton. Very well - because she was along with me and the other woman.</p>
<p>Q. Where were you going?</p>
<p>Minton. I was going to the other woman's lodging, we had been all three drinking at a cellar over against Somerset-house, in the Strand.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the other woman did not take it?</p>
<p>Minton. I am sure I had my money in my pocket when the Prisoner put her hand into it - it was in a black purse.</p>
<p>Q. How came you * by so much money? </p>
<p> * The Prosecutor was a private soldier. </p>
<p>Minton. I received it of Mr. Dobson, at the Custom-house, on account of tea that was seized in a barn at Camberwell belonging to smugglers.</p>

I am a Constable of Covent Garden; between eleven and twelve on Easter Eve (March 24.) this man, Minton, brought the Prisoner into the watchhouse, and in the night I was talking familiarly with her; and I asked her why she robbed such a poor man. She said, D - n it, those that have nothing we can have nothing from, and we must have it from those that have, for we have no respect of persons. She said she had the money, and she swore, she would hang farther and mother, before she would hang herself. Then said I, you should turn evidence. Yes, she said, to be sure I would.</p>
<p>Q. Did she say what money she had?</p>
<p>Wolsenden. She said she had a three-pound-twelve, a thirty-six shilling piece, and a moidore; I can't tell what silver she said she had, she said she had shared the money between herself and two accomplices. I asked her if she had any of the money left. She said she was obliged to pawn her cloak for two shillings. What, said I, is all the money gone? She said, as to one of her accomplices, she was clothed with that money; she had bought her a gown and petticoat, a shift, a pair of stockings, a cap, and the rest of the money was spent.</p>
<p>Q. Did she say in what Manner she took it from Minton?</p>
<p>Wolfenden. I cannot say in particular in what manner; she said, D - n it what signifies talking, the truth is the truth, the money I had from him.</p>
<p>Jury. What condition was she in when she told you this story?</p>
<p>Wolsenden. Just as she is now.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I never saw the man in my life before that night, and he took me into a house to give me a half pennyworth of small beer, I can bring one to prove he never missed the money till seven o'clock next morning.</p>
<p>Wolfenden. The Prisoner said she dogged the man from that cellar in the Strand, into broad St. Giles's.

I asked her some questions , to which she gave me but very indifferent answers. I suspected she had the other part of the tankard about her, and asked her if she had not? She said , No. Then said I, you must give me leave to search you. She very readily let me search one side, but was very unwilling that I should search the other. I put my hand over the counter, and struck it against the edge of the tankard; and then I told her, I must stop her and the tankard. She said, I should have the tankard if I would let her go. I said, that would not do for me. I sent for a Constable, and had her before Justice Clarke, who committed her. I saw by an advertisement that was published that day, who was the owner. I sent to him, and the gentleman came to me, and said, it was his tankard . She said before the Justice that she took it out of the Prosecutor's house; there's the tankard with the name and number that was in the advertisement.</p>
<p>White. That is my tankard.</p>

<p>Q. What did you take her in for?</p>
<p>White. I was in liquor, I did not know what I did; we had two quarterns of gin. I sat down in a chair and fell asleep; and when I awaked, I found I was robbed. I charged them with robbing me of my things. I was robbed of my shoe buckles, &c. They said they had no such things.</p>
<p>Q. You say you was drunk, how did you know you was robbed there?</p>
<p>White. If I had not been drunk I should not have gone into such a house as that - I did not drink a drop of any thing in the house - I believe I was asleep about three quarters of an hour; when I found I could not get my things I went away; the next day I went and demanded the things: the Prisoner confessed she knew of one knee buckle, but said she did not know of any thing more; and she said, if any of her servants or people had taken them, I should have them again.</p>
<p>Q. Where did she say she had that knee buckle?</p>
<p>White. She said she had it from me, and she took it out of a box - she said before the Justice that she had the shoe buckles, knee buckles, stock and stock buckle, and hat; she said she had all except my wig.</p>

He was pretty much in liquor, and I advised him to go home - this was about half an hour after nine. The next morning he came to make his complaints to me, told me what he had lost, and wanted me to go with him to endeavour to get them again. I told him I could not go then. On the Tuesday morning he came and told me he had found out the place where he was robbed, and showed me one of the buckles. We got a warrant and had it executed; and when the Prisoner was before the Justice, she owned every article except either the hat or wig, I cannot tell which.</p>
<p>Q. What did she say, did she own she took them from him?</p>
<p>Hughes. She said she knew of them, and if the Justice would indulge her to let the Constable go home with her, she would show him where the buckles were, and she said they were under a brick in her cellar. The Constable and I went with her, she found the brick but did not find the buckles, then she said that one Sullivan, who she said was run away , or something to that purpose, told her she had left them under a brick in the cellar for her, but she did not know, what Sullivan had done with them.</p>

She said, she wondered I should say so, for her honesty was never questioned; and she declared she did not do it. She went out of my house, and was dogged into a pawnbroker's shop, at the Hand and Lock of Hair in Shoe-lane. She came back again afterwards, and still said, she had nothing of mine. Then I said I must charge a Constable with her. One Mr. Wilson said, it does not signify any thing talking, for I saw you go into a pawnbroker's, and I know some of the goods. Then she fell a crying, and bid me put my hand into her pocket, and take out the key of her room, and I should find a great many of the things. The Constable pushed me away, and said, she should give me the key herself. She said the things were under her bed; and accordingly I found part of the goods there, and part at Mr. Sheldon's, the pawnbroker. I found my daughter's mantelet, and several other things, at Mr. Weyburne's, the Five Roses in Shoe-lane. And before my Lord Mayor she cried, and owned the fact.</p>

<p>Q. Who was in the house?</p>
<p>Langley. The maid and the woman who came to wash. I had known Campbell about a week; he lay about sleeping, and I said, young man you had better go up into the garret and sleep. He went up stairs, and staid there from eight in the morning till five in the afternoon - I missed this money much about six o'clock - the money was in my own chamber, the half-pence upon the table, and the silver in the drawer where the India handkerchief was - He went out about fix, and came in again about eight. The maid said to him, you have got a new checkered shirt on; and asked him some questions. He said, what signifies your asking me so many questions; is there any thing missing? I was loth to awake my husband, who was asleep in the kitchen, and did not say any more to him then. He came in again about eleven o'clock at night, and then he had a white shirt on. I charged a watchman with him, on suspicion of stealing the money, &c. As we were carrying him to the watchhouse, coming through St. Martin's church-yard, he said he would charge me; and he said he did not care if I did transport him, for then he should go to sea. He confessed having the half-pence, and said he met

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174404040012"/>Kitchen . He owed me money for lodging, and I had asked him for it. He came down one evening about a fortnight before I took him up, and brought some of his law papers to me. I said what service are these of to me? said he, pray take them, so at his desiring it I took them and laid them by.</p>
<p>Q. What were they?</p>
<p>Prisoner . One was an indenture of a fine belonging to myself, and the other was a commission empowering me to take affidavits in Buckinghamshire. I left them in his hands as a security till I could get money to pay him for the things he gave me leave to pawn ; he did not deliver the papers till I was apprehended with a warrant.</p>
<p>Kitchen. I own that I delivered them before the Constable, after I took him up.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I continue paying weekly till such time my wife was taken ill?</p>
<p>Kitchen, Yes, but I believe it was with my things.</p>
<p>Prisoner. How much were the things pawned for? That would not pay half a crown a week from September to March, they have put my material witness out of the way, who could have proved he gave me leave to pawn them.</p>

<p>Prisoner. Did not he acknowledge to you whether he had given me leave to pawn them?</p>
<p>Waters. The Prisoner said, ask him whether he did not give me leave to pawn them, and Kitchen said, that was no matter.</p>
<p>Q. Then he did not own or deny it?</p>
<p>Waters. No never an one.</p>
<p>Jordan. I had the search warrant and found the things, Mr. Kitchen denied before the Justice, that he gave the Prisoner leave to pawn them.</p>
<p>Q. Was Waters present when Kitchen was asked the question?</p>
<p>Jordan. I believe he was, but I believe he did not take so much notice as I did.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I have been a man under misfortunes, and have lost a great deal of money. I did not take them with an intent to rob him, or steal them from him, and actually he gave me leave to pawn them.</p>
<p>The Prisoner applied to some gentlemen of reputation in the law who were in Court. One gentleman said he knew him very well as an Attorney at Stony Stratford , and never heard of any misbehaviour in him. Another had known him seventeen or eighteen years ago, at Carmarthan in Wales, that he afterwards lived with Mr. Hayward an Attorney in Salisbury-court, and that he had then a very good character, and never heard any ill of him. A third said he was surprised to see him in these circumstances, that he knew him Clerk to Mr. Hayward, and that he always behaved well.

I asked her what o'clock it was, and she said between 6 and 7. I was in bed on the same floor, and gave her the key of the bed room for her to come into the dining room. - She could not get into the dining room without coming into the bed room; and she took that opportunity to rob me of these things. - Most of the things were in a chest of drawers, the spoons and some other things were lying in the room. I arose between eight and nine and went into the dining room, and found all these things missing, and that she was gone. I went to a neighbour to acquaint him with it, and he advised me to advertise it.

I did not know him at first. After I got up I said , Pray Mr. Carberry don't meddle with me. And he beat me, and said, you B - h, I will knock your brains out.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make any resistance?</p>
<p>Milward. No, Sir - I complained of it about three or four days afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. What was the reason you did not take him sooner?</p>
<p>Milward. Because I could not take him - I had known him in that neighbourhood about three or four months - After he had robbed me he run away directly - He did return to his habitation again, but when I cannot tell.</p>
<p>Q. Was it two days, or did he return the next day?</p>
<p>Milward. I can't tell whether it was the next day, or the fourth day - I believe he was taken up upon the account of Justice Willoughby's being knocked down on Tower-hill; and there was a report that he did it - He went on board of ship after that - I complained to Justice Dennet three or four days after the robbery; and he sent a warrant for him, and he broke out backwards, and got away - He had been seen before that, but it was only in the night.</p>
<p>Jury. Why did not you cry out stop thief?</p>
<p>Milward. If I had, no body would have taken him.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not do any thing to you. You run away as soon as I said to you, You B - h, you are one of them that robbed me last night.</p>
<p>Milward. He did rob me - I knew him by the light of the day - There are several shops there.</p>
<p>Jury. Did not you cry out?</p>
<p>Milward. I made a great noise; but when the people saw who it was, they shut their doors, they were afraid of him, he is so desperate a fellow.</p>
<p>Prisoner. The night before this happened, another midshipman and I went into the bawdy-house which is kept by her or her mother, and we drank pretty freely. She took a laced hat and 2 guinea from this gentleman, and three shillings and six-pence from me. Said I, my girl, you have got a guinea from this gentleman, and a laced hat. She said she knew nothing of it. They had stripped us so, that we had not money to pay our reckoning. And then they and their bullies sell upon us so, that we had like to have been murdered. There were a matter of sixteen whores of them together. So the next day, about three o'clock, I met this girl, and said, You B - h, you are one of the whores that robbed me last night. And so she charges me with robbing her.</p>

The Prisoner has lodged in a room over my head since last Michaelmas, he came into my house in the middle of the day, with a woman he calls his wife, and he and my daughter had some words; he came bodily into the house.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean by bodily?</p>
<p>Milward. He came with a great stick, and he gave me a blow upon my arm, that I had like to have lost the use of it - it was the day the warrant was taken out.</p>
<p>Q. What upon your daughter's affair?</p>
<p>Milward. No, that was the last thing he did, it was upon the account of a quarrel, it was all within a day or two of one another; he came again about six or seven at night. I asked who was there, I believe he changed his voice, said my daughter, that's Carberry's voice. God forbid, said I, but I opened the door, in he came with two pistols in his hands , and a cuttean cross his month. My daughter hid herself behind the back door, and I got out of his fight, but I stood so that I could see what he did. He was in a great passion, and broke the chairs, shelves and things to pieces: there was a lad going by with a link, he got the link from the lad, laid about with one of the pistols, and broke the windows till he was tired with that. Then he took his stick and laid about with one and the other, and broke all the glasses and several bottles of small beer. And at the same time there was a mob of 100 people about the door. - There was a great mob, he threw the goods out into the street, and I went and picked up what I could, for I thought I had better have them than not, and he came out several times before all the people, and no body dared to meddle with him. Then he searched for my daughter and found her, he put a pistol to her breast and said, D - n you you B - h, if you speak a word you are a dead woman. Then he took a box with all these goods and money in it, and put it out at the window, his wife and the landlady he lives with were at the outside of the window, and took the box entirely away, and they carried it up stairs into his own house. And he not only took away all my things, but cut my clothes off my back in the street. The next day I got a warrant from Justice Jones, and I told the Constable what a dangerous man he was, but he could not take him.</p>
<p>Q. Have not you got the Constable here?</p>
<p>Milward. No; Justice Dennet said there was no occasion for him. The Governor of the Tower (I think it was the Governor) sent the whole grand guard, and as they came into the house he got over Esquire Willoughby's garden. - One that he was supposed to be a highwayman about, and so got off. - How he came to be taken I cannot tell, but I think he was taken upon suspicion of robbing Capt. Pidgeon.</p>

I went to supper about nine o'clock, and left the lad in the stable; and I went back into the stable about ten o'clock, and my coat, waistcoat, and great coat were gone.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not a large dog in the yard?</p>
<p>Croon . Yes - he always does bark at strangers - I don't know the Prisoner - I know no body can get into the stable, without 'tis somebody the dog knows.</p>
<p>Mr. Gillman. I lodge at Mr. Matthews's , and was in the shop when the Prisoner brought in the coat. The advertisement was read, and nothing could be painted more exact than this. I advised Mr. Matthews to stop the Prisoner, and go to Mr. Caswell's. The Prisoner would have gone away. I said, Friend, you must not go; you must go to Mr. Caswell's. He said he bought it for eight shillings, that he was then very much in liquor, and did not know the man he bought it of. - To tell you the truth, Sir, said he, I was dead drunk, and don't know the house where I bought it ; but afterwards he said, he had it of one Newman, who was servant to Mr. Caswell. I asked him, if he knew of any of the rest of the things. He said, he did not know any thing of them, I spoke to the Justice to have the house searched where he lived, and he ordered the door to be broke open. And then the Prisoner, rather than have the door broke open, pulled a key out of his pocket; and then he said they were in his room, and they were sent for; and these clothes were brought, which I judge to be the same.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did not I discover that I had the clothes, before the butler?</p>
<p>Gillman. I can't tell what you said to the butler, but before me you said you knew of no more than that numerical coat which is there produced.</p>

I went to Mr. Caswell, and told him, it was hard an innocent man should suffer, when the principal might be taken; and desired Mr. Caswell to let somebody belonging to him make an information of this fact before the Justice, in order to get a warrant to take up the principal: but I could not get his assistance, and I could not get a warrant to take him up.</p>
<p>To this Mr. Caswell replied, That he did apply to the Justice to grant a warrant to take up Newman; but that the Justice did not think proper to grant it for the reason, that if goods are found upon a person, and a warrant was to be granted upon their information, every one would say the goods were brought to them, and by that means every person might be acquitted.</p>
