She said she waited for the Bow coach. Some time after that I told her so again, and then she said all the family were in the country. I drank the last of our beer, and handed the tankard to Mary, the maid of the house; this was about 8 o'clock, and at that time the Prisoner said to Mary, the maid draw me a tankard of beer, and the maid of the house went to draw it in a pewter tankard, the Prisoner made reply, Why do you draw it in a pewter tankard? I and my fellow servants can drink out of a silver tankard as well as those men: the maid of the house said, a pewter tankard was as good as a silver one; the Prisoner said, she would have a silver tankard, and I saw the maid bring the silver tankard up full, and set it down upon a little table in the room, and the Prisoner took the tankard off the table, and said, she would go into the little room by the bar; and the maid of the house followed her the room, and came back to us. I said, Mary, there is a tankard of beer that she has had, which shall have to pay for, if you do not take care of it ; she went into the room the Prisoner went into , and said, Lord, Mr. Fell, there is no body there , and the candle is blown out; said I, what is the tankard? she said, I cannot tell; said I the candle and see; she took the candle and looked , and the tankard was gone, and no body there : presently Mrs. Cross came down, and she said to me, for God's sake go and look after the tankard; said I, what can I do? I cannot do any thing in it, but she desired I would. I knew the Prisoner used to go sometimes to a place where she had an acquaintance, and I intended to go there; but I thought as I went along, I would call at two or three pawnbrokers to try if I could hear any thing of it: I happened to go into a pawnbroker's in Houndsditch, and said, there was a silver tankard lost from the Angel in Whitechapel, and asked if they had seen such a tankard, marked R.C.S. the man seemed in a surprise; said I, you need not be in a surprise, for I have got the Prisoner, though I had not, but I said so, because I saw him in a surprise: said I, let me see the tankard, there's nothing at all in that; so he took the tankard out of a drawer from under the counter, and shewed it me: I said it was Mr. Cross's tankard: he said, the person that brought it to him was an honest girl, for he had known her a great while, and told me that I must look after the Prisoner: I said, as I had seen the tankard, I would not trouble myself about it, for they should find out the Prisoner; and in about an hour they found the Prisoner and brought her to the pawnbroker's shop.</p>

On the 2d of September about 8 o' clock, the Prisoner brought this tankard to my house; I had known her about seven or eight months, and she used to be a customer to us, and had a good character. She said she brought it from her sister, who keeps a public house in Skinner's Street, and wanted to borrow 8 l. upon it, to pay the brewer the next morning.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174509110005"/>Q. Did she tell you whose tankard it was?</p>
<p>Smith. She said it was her sister's tankard; I said, I could not lend her so much upon it: she said, she had received 40 s. for her sister, and if I would lend her six guineas upon it, it would do, which I did, and in about ten minutes time a person came from Mr. Cross to inquire after it; I went to inquire after her, and found her; I sent to Mr. Cross's directly, and they came and owned the tankard.</p>
<p>Mr. Cross's servant maid deposed, that she brought the tankard to the Prisoner, and the Prisoner said she had some company to come, and went into the little room by the bar; that she went up stairs upon some occasion, and when she came down again, the Prisoner and the tankard were gone.</p>

They left these things in his apartment, and went out again, and the third time they came in with some sheets and other things, and then the clock struck twelve.</p>

<p>Crockett. No, she left a candle in the window the second time they were there. About five o'Clock they went out.</p>
<p>Q. Did they carry these things with them?</p>
<p>Crockett. No, but they were carried out of the house. I got up about seven o'Clock, and saw that the window shutters had been cut open, so that I could put my hand in between the two window shutters, (I made a complaint to the neighbours of it; for Watland always desired us or some of the neighbours to give an eye to his windows whenever we went by, when he was out of town) one pane of glass was broke, and the window shutter bedaubed with mud. The neighbours would have had me have taken out a warrant, but I did not care to do it till the Prosecutor came home. Jones went to Rag Fair to buy a bit of Salmon, and somebody who knew that I was going after him, bid him not come up the Lane; so when he saw me, he threw the Salmon away, and put the dish under his arm, and run away. I found under the head of the Prisoner's bed a large spike nail, a chissel, and this bunch of keys, [some of them were pick lock keys] I sent to Watland, but could not find out where he was.

I went with him, and in the Prisoner's room we found these things [a bunch of keys, a large spike nail, and a chissel] and a great part of the goods which the Prosecutor lost: I carried these things to my house, and in about three weeks time the Prosecutor and his wife came to town, and they came to my house; I fetched the things down, and Watland said, they were his.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174509110008"/>Price. He pulled his crape aside, as I suppose, to see who came each way. Then he demanded our money, and the gentlewoman who was with me, said, we have none. He damned us, and bid us give him what we had got. I said, I had 2 s. 8 d. and I gave it to him. Then he demanded Mrs. Taylor's money, she gave it to me, and I gave it to the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. How much was there?</p>
<p>Price. There was 7 d.</p>
<p>Q. Did he take any thing else from you?</p>
<p>Price. He took two gold rings, and rode off as hard as he could; we drove after him as hard as we could drive, till we saw two gentlemen; I then stood upright in the chaise, and cried out, a highwayman, a highwayman, he has robbed me, and they rode after him and took him.</p>
<p>Q. In how long time did they take him?</p>
<p>Price. I believe it could not be a quarter of an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Was he never out of your sight?</p>
<p>Price. He was never out of my sight. I saw them pull him off his horse, then we stopped, and they brought the Prisoner up to us, and asked us if we knew him: I said, yes, he was the person that robbed us, and he owned the fact.</p>
<p>Q. What did he say?</p>
<p>Price. He was asked whether he was the person that robbed us, and he said, yes, he was, but he hoped we would not prosecute him.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I would ask the lady whether she knows me to be the man?</p>
<p>Price. Yes; I saw your face, the crape was aside. This is the crape he had over his face.</p>

I got into the same track, and rode after him, and did design to ride over him, but he turned out of the way, (I suppose he was surprised to hear somebody so near him) and my horse rode before him: I could not immediately stop my horse; so soon as I would I turned my horse, and rode after him again, and he turned his horse against Mr. Stevenson's. I caught hold of his right hand, and we both came down together. Upon this Mr. Stevenson and I secured him; he asked what we wanted with him; I said there was a hue and cry after him, and if he had done any thing amiss he must answer for it, and he should. He struggled a little, and desired us to let him go; I told him I could not; he said, then I am a dead man. I said, how do you know that? He said it was the first robbery that ever he committed. I said it was too soon now, so Mr. Stevenson and I led him, he went between us, I laid hold of his left arm, and Mr. Stevenson of his right. In leading him along the road, he begged for mercy, and said he had robbed two women of a small trifle; I think he said of about 18 d. or 2 s. and some half-pence, and two gold rings, and desired us to let him go. We carried him up to them, and Mrs. Taylor said, I thank you, Sir, that is the man that robbed us. We went to the White-hart, and had a pot of beer, and desired the women to let me know where I might call upon them. The Prisoner had a pistol in his pocket loaded with shot. I think he had about three shillings in silver and some brass. I asked where the rings were, he said he had put them into his pocket. I desired him to sit down, and told him if he would not sit down, I would tie him. So I searched his breeches for the rings, but could not find them. He said there were holes in his pockets, and they might get into the lining, so I unbuttoned the knees of his breeches and they dropped out.</p>

After that they stopped my mouth with a handkerchief, and picked my pocket, and swore if I offered to cry out they would murder me (they are all, my Lord, supposed to be of the Black Boy alley crow, for they have been dispersed since the alley has been take up.) Then they dragged me into a house in Moses an Aaron alley, and there they stripped me of the rest of my money, which was about 8 s. my jewels, and the things which I had about me. I have got one pair of ear rings by the means of a person who gave me instructions where to find them.</p>

<p>Wilson. She had her hand about my neck after the candle was out, and she said, my dear, take care of yourself, and you shall not be hurt. Then I called out, and the two women took and hove me out of doors.</p>
<p>Q. Who assisted in putting you out of the house?</p>

<p>Wilson. I had been at the Saracen's head within Aldgate, where I lodge.</p>

<p>Wilson. I was as sober as I am now.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it before that time, that you had your money?</p>

<p>Q. When did you come from Sheerness ?</p>
<p>Wilson. I came from Sheerness on Tuesday, and I believe it was twelve o'clock yesterday morning when I came here, and I went to Mr. Busby's in Doctor's Commons with a ticket of 33 l. which was my brother's.</p>
<p>Prisoner Green. I desire to know whether you did not leave your watch in pledge at the watchhouse for a shilling, for some liquor?</p>
<p>Wilson. Yes, I did, my Lord, and I saved my watch by chance, it was by mere accident, for the string was got into the inside of my breeches.</p>

Then Warner, a watchman, came and said, he believed the two women were passed by. I saw them, but they were then in the liberty of the little Minories, and I could not take them. But they came to the pump to drink, which is in our ward, and then Warner and I took them and carried them to the watch-house. When they came there, and finding no body that knew them, they began to be saucy. Then I fetched Mr. Wilson, and he came to the watch-house, and said, those were the women that robbed him.</p>

He said he was robbed of fifteen guineas, and desired I would break the door open. I told him I could not without a warrant. I knocked at the door with my staff, but could not get the door opened; he said if I would let two men stand at the door all night, he would pay them for it; so I let two watchmen stand there, and they stood I believe about an hour, and then Walker and Green came by and were taken.</p>

<p>Smith. I cannot say that: I lost twenty one hats out of my shop; I missed them about a quarter of an hour after I got up. I went to some pawnbrokers to desire them to stop them if any were brought to them, and in about half an hour's time a messenger came from Mr. Edwards a pawnbroker, to let me know he had stopped a hat, and desired to know if it was mine. I went to Mr. Edwards's, and there was the Prisoner James; I said to him, young man, did you bring this hat to the pawnbroker's? he said, yes; I asked him, how he came by it? he said, he made a purchase of it; I asked him, where? he said, in Smithfield; I asked him, who he bought it of? he said, of a drover; that he held it upon a stick, and asked, who would buy a hat? and he bought it; I asked him if he wanted a hat this morning? he said, yes; then said I, how came you to pawn it? I told him, I did not like that way of proceeding, and that I would charge him, if he did not give a better account how he came by it. I went with him into Mr. Edwards's room, and he said, he would tell me the truth; he said he went to sleep in a hay loft, and a man came and pulled him by the arm, and desired he would pawn it for two shillings.</p>

She washed in the morning, and he went out with some pipes. He came home about 4 or 5 o'clock, and says to her, Bet, this is the best half guinea I ever laid out in my life, for I have been to ask counsel (for she had bound him over for assaulting her) and I am not afraid that you can hurt me or my bail; for he was bailed out of the Gatehouse , and that bred a sort of a quarrel between them, and he took all the wet linen that was in the washing tub, and bundled them up in a bundle, and would not let her have them; so they quarrelled for a considerable time. There were three women of our trade came to the Prisoner's house in the evening, and the Prisoner and his wife were pretty sociable, and he sent for me to drink with them. About 11 o' clock after the company was gone, I was in the stoke hole, and they were standing looking at me; As they were standing looking at me, he said, Bet, let me have a buss, and make all up, for said he, it is a sad thing we should be always quarrelling and differing; and, as
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174509110023"/> he said, he went to buss her, and she put his hand away from her, but he took a buss from her partly by force, and he had a buss. She said, Tommy, I can hardly buss you, for I cannot love you. He stood in a pause: well, Bet, said he, if it is so that you can never value me nor respect me, it is the best way for us to separate: there is a 30 l. bond you carried to your father, I have received 15 l. and there is 15 l. coming to me, only let me have that 15 l. and I will resign the trade up to you, and go and travel the country as a journeyman, and take my chance; and I will give you a bond never to trouble you, and you shall give me a bond never to trouble me. Then said she, I will agree to it, and I will take the business into my own hand. Then said he, I will tie you up from one thing, that you shall not employ

Then he fell a dancing and capering, and said, then it is all off if you will employ him, and fell a singing directly. After that they had some punch, he went out and ordered it. They said there was 18 d. worth, and he drank to me in the stoke hole, and they had no words after that. Said he, Morgan, I have got some pipes that were burnt slack before, and I would have these burnt harder; and he brought me 4 pieces of a coach wheel to burn them harder. Then he came and said, come up and drink your punch, and he stoked down for me, for he said, you are quite hot. I said, I am quite wearied out, I will go to bed. He said, I will stay a little longer, for I love my fire to be out before I go to bed; but I being quite tired went to bed.</p>
<p>Q. Pray did you hear when it was that the woman was murdered?</p>
<p>Morgan. No, I lay in the garret, I went and left him singing; for I was a little in liquor.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you go to bed?</p>
<p>Morgan. About twelve o'clock, and lay till between eight and nine the next morning. When I got up I came down stairs, and he complained for want of pipes to serve his customers. I went to open this kiln of pipes to let them cool, and in the mean time the woman at the Cock and Bottle came over and said our bing is full of foul pipes and will not hold any more. I said I will go and take them away; and there being some company, I staid about an hour, and I said it is a strange thing they should not get up.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see your master in the morning?</p>
<p>Morgan. No, I never saw him after I left off burning.</p>
<p>Q. You say your master told you he wanted pipes for his customers, when was that, over night, or in the morning?</p>
<p>Morgan. It was over night.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you go out in the morning?</p>
<p>Morgan. I believe it was about nine o'clock, and I staid there till between two and three o' clock expecting their coming down. Then I bored a hole in the wall of their chamber and looked through, and saw no sheet upon the bed. I bored another hole, which directed me to the middle of the room, and then I saw a puddle of blood in the middle of the room. Seeing that, I pushed the door a little to look farther in, and I saw two naked legs lying on the floor on the farther side of the bed. I run down stairs to this gentlewoman [Mrs. Moody] and said, for God's sake come up, there is murder in the house, for Morgan has killed himself; she went up and looked upon her as she lay, and thought that he was murdered.</p>
<p>Q. Was the body naked?</p>
<p>Morgan. Yes; the body was naked.</p>
<p>Q. Did she lay at the side of the bed, or under the bed?</p>
<p>Morgan. At the side of the bed.</p>
<p>Q. What reason had you to think it was him that was murdered?</p>
<p>Morgan. I judged it to be him because there was no cap on; and I thought he had made away with himself. Then several women came up stairs. What do you talk, said they, of his being murdered? it is she that is murdered. And they said to somebody, do you go down and take care of the doors, and call some of the neighbours, and when some of the substantial neighbours came, I was secured, and sent to the Gatehouse.</p>
<p>Q. What room did you find the deceased in?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174509110024"/>Morgan. In a room up two pair of stairs.</p>
<p>Q. Where is the shop?</p>
<p>Morgan. It is up one pair of stairs.</p>
<p>Q. You say you was a little in liquor, and you went to bed?</p>
<p>Morgan. Yes, I was a little in liquor, and that was the reason I went to bed so soon.</p>
<p>Q. Pray did you see in what condition the body was?</p>
<p>Morgan. I saw the body, but I did not see any wound upon it, for I run down stairs to call the neighbours; and I never saw her afterwards.</p>
<p>[The Coroner said there was a matter of 20 wounds on the body, and 3 of them were mortal.]</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any noise or any strugling during the whole night?</p>
<p>Morgan. I did not hear any.</p>

I said, what have you seen? He said, he had looked through the key hole, and had seen some blood in the room. So I went to call some of the neighbours.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this?</p>
<p>Moody. It was about three o'clock in the afternoon on the Tuesday.</p>
<p>Q. Where did she lay then?</p>
<p>Moody. She lay on the floor on her right side, with her face towards the bed.</p>
<p>Q. Was she naked?</p>
<p>Moody. Her shift was pulled up to her neck, and she was bare headed.</p>
<p>Q. Had she any wounds upon her body that you observed?</p>
<p>Moody. Yes, I observed several.</p>
<p>Q. Can you give any account where the wounds were?</p>
<p>Moody. I believe she had three on the side of her belly, six along her throat, and she had a great many behind her ear.</p>
<p>Q. Had she any other wounds?</p>
<p>Moody. Yes; but I did not take any particular notice of them.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any noise in the night?</p>
<p>Moody. Yes; I am sure I heard her cry out murder .</p>
<p>Q. Did she do it more than once?</p>
<p>Moody. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What time was that?</p>
<p>Moody. The watch called two o'clock, and a quarter before that she was crying something about justice.</p>
<p>Q. Could you hear every thing that was said or done in the house?</p>
<p>Moody. Pretty well.</p>
<p>Q. What did you hear further?</p>
<p>Moody. I heard a sort of a groaning.</p>
<p>Q. Was you pretty conversant with them?</p>
<p>Moody. I was very often with them.</p>
<p>Q. Did they agree well, or how did they live?</p>
<p>Moody. They were always falling out, and she crying murder.</p>
<p>Prisoner. That woman knows no more of me
