<p>Q. How long had he been your Journeyman?</p>
<p>Chatto. He work'd with me only a Fortnight.</p>
<p>Q. When did you discharge him ?</p>
<p>Chatto. The Thursday before. I took Horse and pursu'd him into Kent; I stopp'd at a Place call'd Walling, and ask'd there if they had heard of any such Man; ( because I had an Information that he was going to set up at a Place call'd Dartford) one said, as you describe the Man, there was such a Person pass'd by here about Eleven o'Clock an Sunday, with a Large Bundle on his Back, and I think I saw Skins: I had not been above 100 Yards in the Town when I pass'd a little Shop, a sort of a Taylor's, and something of Leather likewise, and saw a Man skulk behind the Shop-board; whereupon I alighted from my Horse, and perceiving it to be the Prisoner, I said to him, John, when came you hither; he answer'd, on Saturday.</p>
<p>Q. What Day was this?</p>
<p>Chatto. On Tuesday. I said to him, will you go and drink? He scarce would speak to me; but we went into a Room and I lock'd the Door; then I tax'd him with the Affair and he deny'd it; I sent for a Constable, and told him it signify'd nothing talking, for that he had robb'd me; he then heartily begg'd my Pardon. I ask'd him what he did it with, he said he did it with a knife and Chisel: Then I ask'd him where the Goods were, and he told me they were at Dartford, at his Mother's; I bid him send for them; he said he could not write; but I said I would write for him, and ask'd him where they were; he said in a Bag in the Closer. I got a Man to go, and he brought the Goods to the Constable, where the Prisoner then was.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got the Goods here?</p>
<p>Chatto. They are at the Baptist's Head; I will send for them.</p>
<p>[The Goods were produced in Court, and the Prisoner confess'd that with a Knife and Chisel he cut some part of the Grove, then wrench'd it off, took down the Shutter and thrust up the Sash, and took out the Goods about Two o'Clock in the Morning.]</p>

<p>Q. Did the Prosecutor, Brend, lodge at your House in July last.</p>
<p>Terry. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know of any Things that were taken from him?</p>
<p>Terry. Yes, my Lord; I know of Half a Guinea, twelve Shillings and Two-pence, a Pair of Silver Shoe-Buckles, a Pair of Knee-Buckles, and I think a Pair of Garters; it was of a Sabbath-Day Night, the 6th of July; my Wife and I were gone to Bed, not thinking any thing of being robb'd, or of the Prisoner, for I took him to be a very honest Man. After I was in Bed the Prosecutor came down and knock'd at my Door: I said to my Wife, pray don't let any Body have any more Beer to Night, for 'tis late; the Man spoke to me through the Key-Hole; my Wife said to me, get up, this poor young Fellow is robb'd by somebody, I can't tell who; so I got up and went down to the Watchman to light a Candle.</p>
<p>Q. Then the Man complain'd of his being robb'd.</p>
<p>Terry. Yes, he came down very softly for fear of being discover'd: As I had two Soldiers lodg'd upon me, I charg'd them with the Robbery; I told them this Man had been robb'd, and I must know who it is that had robb'd him. The Soldiers got up at once, but I did not examine their Pockets. I took a Candle, and went into the Room where this Man was a-bed; there was another Man, a Corporal; he said, he had heard some Money chink; so I said to this

I said to him, What did you do this Thing for? He said, he had got the Foul Distemper, and he got that Money on purpose to get him cur'd. He went back to the Bed where he lay, and he took the twelve Shillings
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174609030006"/> and two Pence, and Half a Guinea; he took it from between the Bed and the Sacking. I said to him, Have you got a Pair of Buckles, young Man? he said, Aye, I'll find them out; at last he brings out two Pair of Buckles.</p>
<p>Q. What were these Buckles ?</p>
<p>Terry. The Shoe-buckles were Silver, the other common Metal.</p>
<p>Q. (to the Prisoner) Have you any Questions to ask the Witness ?</p>
<p>Prisoner. Ask him how honest I behav'd in his House when the Serjeant got drunk, &c.</p>
<p>Terry. He always behav'd honest, as I thought; I had a good Opinion of him.</p>
<p>Q.(to the Prisoner) What have you to say for yourself, by way of Defence; or have you any Witness to your Character?</p>
<p>Prisoner. My Lord, I lodg'd in this Mr. Terry's House; and, as I was going to Bed, I had a Candle in my Hand, and found these Things in my Way. I did not put the Money into my Pocket, but laid it on the Bed 'till I should hear some Body enquire for it. I heard them make a Noise, examining the Soldiers; and I was getting up at the Time Mr. Terry came into the Room; I told him I had the Money and the Buckles; I call'd to him, and gave them to him; I did not steal, non-break or pick a Lock. If I had a Mind to commit a Robbery, I had had a greater Opportunity, which I did not.</p>

The Prisoner said, I'll go and shew you. I ask'd the Maid at the Publick-House what she left there; so we look'd, and found the Gown, Hat, and Handkerchief.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any thing more to say?</p>

<p>Wilkins. I undress'd myself, my Lord, so did the Girl too; we were in Bed about Half an Hour; I did not close my Eyes; the Girl got up and went down Stairs; whether she went down to the Necessary-House, or something I can't tell what: When the Girl went down Stairs the Candle was burning; the Prisoner took the Breeches from under my Head, and two Half Crowns In my Sight. My Lord, there was a Candle burning in the Room all the while. I would not have suffer'd her to rob me, but I was in Danger of my Life, for there was another Man that lay with her; I knew I was in a disorderly House. After the Girl that went down Stairs came up again, I said that Woman in the next Room has robb'd me; I got up, and saw a Man in Bed with her; she was only in her Smock when she came into the Room to my Bed-side, With that the Girl that lay with me slipt down again, and said that she would not lie under Danger for no such Whores, &c.</p>
<p>Q. How came she there; did you charge both these Women?</p>
<p>Wilkins. She that lay with me was charged as a disorderly Woman, no other Offence.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the disorderly Man?</p>
<p>Wilkins. The disorderly Man was along with the disorderly Woman; but he hopes he shall do so no more.</p>
<p>Q. So you did not struggle?</p>
<p>Wilkins. No, my Lord, I knew what Sort of Gang they were; I have heard it commonly said when I have been in Company with Parish Officers, &c.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to go to such Places ?</p>
<p>Wilkins. My Lord, I was to blame.</p>
<p>Jury. My Lord, we believe he has been there before now.</p>
<p>Q. What did she do?</p>
<p>Wilkins. She took my Breeches from under my Head, and took out two Half Crowns, a Shilling and a Six-pence.</p>
<p>Q. Pray what Clothes had she on when she came in to take the Money?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174609030010"/>Wilkins. She came in her Smock, my Lord, into the Room; had nothing but her Smock and her Cap upon her Head.</p>

He told me he had a large Quantity of these Hairs to dispose of, 5 or 600 Weight. I follow'd him the whole Day, but would not seize this small Parcel, in Hopes of finding the biggest. It was on the 25th of July; I was a whole Day with him, and spent my Money upon him. I went again the 26th, on Saturday Morning; when I came there he was a Bed. I order'd the Landlord to call him down; I ask'd him to drink; I said Mr. March, as you have such a large Quantity of Bristles to sell, I would have you let me see them; he said he had no more at that Time, but if I would take them in Part, he would make them up a Quarter of a Hundred, and that he had them for a Debt of a Gentleman that was then in Ludgate, which was false, for he had them of Mr. Yeoman's Maid in St. Thomas Apostles; She put the Bristles in this same Bag, and he (Original March) took them of her, in order to pay a Debt of

<p>Stanley. Yes, and that she gave them to him afterwards, and said, March, if you can take a few of these Hairs, and pay this little Money, if you have a Conscience that will do it; and March said

I consulted proper Means to find it out; I suspected the Man more than the Maid. We contriv'd that her Mistress should send her down to get some Water, and in the mean Time she should examine her Pocket: Her Mistress follow'd her to the Kitchen Door, and ask'd her for her Pocket; upon which I found the Thirty-Six Shilling Piece and Guinea, which I had mark'd.

I ask'd him if he mistrust'd any Body; he said he did not like his Maid, for no body had been in the Counting-House but her: But however, at Night, when I went up to my Chamber. I had not been there but a very little while, but my Son Marshall knock'd at the Chamber Door, and said, that he had found the Thief. When I went down to his Room, there was he and his Wife and Maid, together; he said he could forever it; with that the Maid cry'd, and said, she acknowledg'd she did take it, and if we would forgive her she would never do so any more; and she frankly did acknowledge that she did take Money from the first fortnight of her coming into the House, and that she had taken in all near thirty or forty Pounds.</p>

<p>Ward. He brought these four Glasses to me and offer'd them to Sale; he brought some before, which I bought; he brought them the 30th Day of July; they are Glasses for Coach Doors.</p>
<p>Q. What is your Business?</p>
<p>Ward. Mine is Glass Business, and Gilding besides.</p>
<p>Q. When he brought them to you what did he bring them for?</p>
<p>Ward. He brought them to sell to me; he had brought some to me before, which I had bought; the first of his coming to me was the 26th of July.</p>
<p>Q. Did you buy any of them?</p>
<p>Ward. Yes, my Lord, I bought six of them, three on the 26th of July, and three more on the 28th or 29th, I can't tell which.</p>
<p>Q. Did he offer any on the 30th of July?</p>
<p>Ward. On the 30th he brought three more; then I saw that those Glasses had never been in the Glew of the Coach; those I bought before were old, so that I could not suspect them; but who I saw these to be new Glasses I agreed with him for a Price for them, and said, call again, Mr. Harrison, about Two o'Clock in the Afternoon and I shall be ready for you; I then went about to the Trade: I took a Receipt in the Name of

One Mr. Hall came along with him to see them.</p>
<p>Q. When was that?</p>
<p>Ward. The Day the Rebels were hang'd; I think the 30th of July. I shew'd them the four Glasses which were produced in Court.</p>
<p>Q. Had you all those four Glasses from the Prisoner ?</p>
<p>Ward. Yes. When Mr. Tayler saw them he could not be positive they were his; but desir'd his Journeyman might see them, who came down accordingly; but neither of them would swear to the particular Marks of the Glasses, except one of them.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know which of the four it was?</p>
<p>Ward. I cannot say my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. What follow'd after that?</p>
<p>Ward. Mr. Tayler sent down his Man to know whether the Prisoner had been with me; if not, he desir'd I would stop him when he came; but he had been with me, and I said to him, Mr. Harrison, I have a great Suspicion that you have not come honestly by these Goods; I'll stop them; he said very well, I will bring you Proof I have come by them honestly: Then Mr. Tayler sent for me to the Sun-Tavern in Holbourn, to know whether I had stopp'd him; I told him he had been there before he sent down to me, that I had not stopp'd him, but the Goods. I told him they might belong to other People as well as to him, and that I would advertise them, which I accordingly

<p>Horn. I was at Mr. Tayler's on Tuesday the 29th of July, and he was saying he had lost a Glass; we were at the Queen's-Head-Tavern, and I persuaded him to advertise this Glass. The next Day I went to Mr. Tayler's and Mr. Ward came in at the same Time; he said he had stopp'd four Glasses that he believed to belong to Mr. Tayler: Mr. Tayler was very cautious, he would not swear to them, and I persuaded him to send his Servant. Some Time after this I went along with him and Mr. Ward and he pull'd out a Receipt of John Harrison's of 3 l. 15 s. I saw one Glass that I could swear I sold to Mr. Tayler for 2 l. 6 s. one was a Looking-Glass.</p>

<p>Morris. She ask'd if her and her Husband might have a Lodging.</p>
<p>Q. When did she come?</p>
<p>Morris. The 13th of July last.</p>
<p>Q. What was your Answer?</p>
<p>Morris. I told her I had; immediately they order'd a Candle and went to Bed; they did not stay a Quarter of an Hour; they hired one Pair of Stairs backwards; they hired it for no time but that Night. He that she call'd her Husband was along with her; so that I went to Bed, and made all fast.</p>
<p>Q. What then ?</p>
<p>Morris. After they had been in Bed and put out the Candle, I goes to Bed about Twelve o'Clock.</p>
<p>Q. When did they go to Bed ?</p>
<p>Morris. About Eight or Nine.</p>
<p>Q. What then?</p>
<p>Morris. So about Break of Day the Man knocks at my Room Door, where I lay; then I got out of Bed, and he told me he had lost his Waistcoat, his Watch and Money. How can that be, said I; why, there is none could come in there? I ask'd him how he lost it? He said, the Woman was gone that came along with him as his Wife.</p>
<p>Court. So he lodg'd in your House that Night.</p>
<p>Morris. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Who took the Lodgings?</p>
<p>Morris. She took the Lodgings.</p>
<p>Q. Was he by; did he say any thing at all to the contrary.</p>
<p>Morris. No, he said nothing at all to the contrary. When he told me that he was robb'd, I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174609030018"/> said, how can that be, I had made every Place of the House secure. So I immediately got up. He said, the Woman is gone from me; I said, I thought she told me last Night that she was your Wife. So I gets up, thinking I should find her in some of the Rooms of the House. When I went down Stairs, I found the Shop secure, and the Back-Door secure, every Place secure, except the Yard-Door; that I left bolted when I went to Bed; so when I went down, I found the Door half shut and half open; then I went into the Yard, and I found the Track of Dirt from her Shoes on my Water-Tub; so I went into the Yard of an empty House, and some of the Threads of her Stockings stuck upon the Pales, and I found that Yard-Door broke open; that Yard-Door went into an Alley. About Ten o'Clock she was found.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find any thing upon her ?</p>
<p>Morris. Yes, we found something that belong'd to the Watch.</p>
<p>Q. How far did you find her from you?</p>
<p>Morris. She had made her Escape from me; she was brought before Sir Thomas, and there I saw her.</p>
<p>Q. What was the Thing that you found upon her that belong'd to the Watch.</p>
<p>Morris. An Ear-drop, it was found in her Bosom. Whilst I was hunting after her, my Maid-servant, going up to make the Bed, found the Waistcoat, ripp'd at the Top, where Davis had put his Watch and Money.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sensible this is the Man that came in with that Woman as his Wife?</p>

<p>Davis. What I have to say, please you, my Lord, I was going home from the House of Call; at the End of Long-Acre I met this Woman, the Prisoner; she ask'd me to treat her; I said, Woman, if I go to bed with you I will give you something: She said, Will you go to a Publick-House by, or to my own Lodgings? I said, I will go to your Lodgings, if you lodge by here; and went to Mr. Morris's, (here present) and had something to drink, and I paid for it; then we went up one Pair of Stairs, and she went down again for a Pint of Small-Beer; in the mean Time I pull'd my Cloaths off my Back, and put my Money and Watch, and other Materials belonging to it, in the Lining of my Waistcoat, and I went to bed with her. When I awak'd in the Morning, my Waistcoat, and all that I put in it, was gone.</p>
<p>Q. What was your Waistcoat?</p>
<p>Davis. Damask.</p>
<p>Q. What your Watch?</p>
<p>Davis. A Silver Watch, with a Silver Chain, and nineteen Shillings in Money: Also, I put a Pair of Silver Buckles, and an Ear-drop that was hanging to the Chain of my Watch.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do with your Waistcoat?</p>
<p>Davis. The Waistcoat was in my Coat, left on the Chair at-the Bedside.</p>
<p>Court. Then she went to-bed with you.</p>
<p>Davis. I went to-bed, and she came to-bed to me.</p>
<p>Q. When you awak'd in the Morning, what then?</p>
<p>Davis. I miss'd the Woman, the Waistcoat, and all that I put in it. I went down Stairs, seeking for a Place to get out, but found none; I then knock'd on the Floor, and found a Man and Woman lying together; I apply'd to the Landlord to let me have my Things, for God's Sake, and said I was ruin'd, and must not shew my Face any more; said he, I will do my Endeavour to get your Waistcoat again.</p>
<p>Q. Did you get your Watch or Money again?</p>
<p>Davis (answering very mournfully) No, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to indict her for stealing your Waistcoat, when she left that, and it was produced before the Justice?</p>
<p>Davis. I don't know how that came.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any thing more against her?</p>
<p>Davis. She was the only Person that carried me into the House. The Door was fasten'd when we went to bed, by setting a big Chair against it.</p>
<p>Court. Then that was the only Fastening the Door had, the Chair put against it.</p>
<p>Davis. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Is that the Ear-drop ?</p>
<p>Davis. This is the very Thing.</p>

My Mistress said follow her; accordingly I did, but instead of going over to the Upholsterer's Shop, she went up Shoe Lane; she cross'd up a narrow dark Entry: I follow'd her, and ask'd her if she had not got a Pair of Stockings; she said I should search her.

I said here are the Stockings which you took from our Shop; she said they stuck to her Apron, for she did not know how they came there.
