<p>Gilley.

I turned her apron aside and she had under that a pocket apron, out of which she took with her own hand two half pieces of ribbon, my property.</p>

<p>Q. What weight did you buy?</p>
<p>Eade. We bought about 50 tun of shot and shells, they were taken out of a French prize at Portsmouth. About three days after this there came a person to me to know if I would buy some iron shot, I agreed with him at four shillings a hundred for all he had. This person's name was

<p>Q. Who agreed to be concerned in taking this iron?</p>
<p>Churchouse. Brisingham, myself, and Mossman.</p>
<p>Q. Was not Bentley there?</p>
<p>Churchouse. No, not then, and please you. We took nine booms out of the skiff and put them on shore at new crane. They told me they were going over the water to Mr. Larrance's to sell them. Then I left them and went home to my master's house, and did not see them till the next day. Brisingham and Mossman made three freights that night.</p>
<p>Q. Was Bentley with you when you shared the money?</p>
<p>Churchouse. Bentley was standing in another box seeing some men play at cards. He was to have nine shillings and seven pence half penny, but I did not see him receive it. Mossman, myself, and Hymore had each the like.</p>
<p>Q. Pray where was this?</p>
<p>Churchouse. At Mr. Patts's alehouse. This was the third of November about 7 o'clock at night.</p>

<p>Q. What goods?</p>
<p>Rose. Shells and booms for messrs. Eades and Boulton.</p>
<p>Q. What quantity?</p>
<p>Rose. I believe four or five hundred tun.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you bring the ship to?</p>
<p>Rose. To Wapping dock, and put them into two lighters, the 2d of Nov. And about a week after that I went to Mr. Eades's, and the clerk told me they had got some of the goods that had been stolen.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see them?</p>
<p>Rose. Yes, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the clerk's name?</p>
<p>Rose. It is Wilson.</p>
<p>Q. Were they part of Mr. Eades's goods, do you know?</p>
<p>Rose. They were very remarkable; we broke them with an intent to save the duty, by an order of the commissioners. I was satisfied they were the shot and shells I brought from Portsmouth.</p>

Upon the ship's arrival, we sent two men to take the goods out; one went through bridge, the other to the warehouse. When I saw those that came home, I imagined we had lost some shot. We took them out and weighed them, and found a deficiency of 26 hundred weight. About three days after that Welch brought in about this quantity, which he said he bought of Larrance.</p>
<p>Q. What did you give Larrance for them?</p>
<p>Wilson. I agreed to give him four shillings an hundred,</p>
<p>Q. Was any of the same left in the warehouse to compare those with?</p>
<p>Wilson. Yes, my Lord, and I have all the reason in the world to believe them to be the same.</p>

Bowers confessed there were 14 china plates this Upman had taken from me, at a house in St. Giles's. I went and found them at Thomas Morris's lodging, with one pair of brass candlesticks, one pair of thread stockings, one china mug, two napkins, one table cloth, some jelly glasses, all my property.</p>

One of the boys saw her give them to me, and told his master, and the gentleman came directly.</p>
<p>Q. You was before the Justice; what did you discover to him ?</p>
<p>Bowers. I told the Justice I had not seen her box for seven weeks.</p>
<p>Q. to Tompkins. Did this woman make any confession before Justice Green of those plates?</p>
<p>Tompkins. Yes, my Lord, and said Upman told her she need not be afraid of carrying those few plates, for there were more of the same sort at Morris's.</p>
<p>Bowers. I told him of nothing but the dozen and half of plates. She told me they were in Brown's gardens, St. Giles's, in her box. I knew she lodged there when she was out of place.</p>
<p>Morris. This woman did lodge at my house about three weeks before she came to Mr. Tompkins's house to live.</p>
<p>Q. Did she ever come afterwards?</p>
<p>Morris. Yes, my Lord, I know very little of her. Her box was brought when I was out at work. She having knowledge of my daughter, desired it might be lodged at my house till she got a place, I know nothing of what was in it.</p>

<p>Q. What reason have you to suspect the Prisoner at the bar?</p>
<p>Roberts. I took some of the money and watch upon her: we miss'd the money about four or five o'clock in the afternoon; the maid and she were gone together, and I have not seen the maid since; I found the Prisoner at the bar, at the Swan in Holborn; she had took coach for Bath; I ask'd her if she knew any thing of my money; she said, she had got some of it, and gave me the purse with some of the money in it, and my watch: I had not miss'd that before; she said, the maid gave it her, and bid her make the best of her way, or they should both be hang'd : the watch and bag I can swear to, and there were some pieces of money which I put in; there was no more in the purse when I took her, than five pounds.</p>

My servant maid said the Prisoner was her first cousin; she being out of place, and coming to see our maid, I ask'd her if she could iron, and I took her three times into my house; I approved of her work very well: on the 23 d about four o'clock in the afternoon, I went to see how the Prisoner went on with her work; there was a candle burning and a great fire, but no body there; my maid being in the yard, washing dishes; I ask'd her, where was Catherine ? Madam, says she, she is above stairs; I took the candle, and went up and found the drawers open, and the purse and money was gone; the watch I did not miss, although it lay just by the money before.</p>
<p>Q. What money was in the purse?</p>
<p>M. Roberts. There was 10 l. 15 s. I should not have suspected her, had she staid and done her work, and took her money.</p>

I locked up the door of my house, and pin'd the windows of my house and shop. I did not shut up the window shutter of the back house, but pin'd the window down fast. When I came home at night I found my house entirely open, and the back window. One pane of the sash was broke, and there was blood upon the table under the window. This pane was broke in order to unpin the sash, and the windows and doors I found open. There are three houses all of a row, mine is one of them. I found they had taken the money out of the shop; I cannot tell how much I had there; but in all I believe I lost upwards of 10 l. out of the house and shop. Some was in my drawers above.</p>
<p>Q. What goods did you lose?</p>
<p>Alien. I lost four caps, three cambrick handkerchiefs, two linen ones, one linen apron, one muslin apron, and some bacon.</p>
<p>Q. What pieces of money did you lose?</p>
<p>Alien. There were seven guineas, one half guinea, one nine shilling piece in gold, the rest was silver and brass, and a green purse. Two men pursued those prisoners, as I had reason to suspect them, and took them at Bushey in Hertfordshire; and I had them before a Justice there. When we brought them back we had them before Justice Holt; Royan discovered to me before this Justice, that as they were at dinner the next door to me, she said she wanted some bacon. Kelley said, if she
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174812070011"/> would go, she would tell her where she might get some. Accordingly she went, she said, and broke the pane in my window, and took up the sash, and went in, and took out my linen and bacon. This was the first time she went in; then Kelley asked her if she had any money, she said, no; he said if you'll go again, I'll tell you where it is,</p>
<p>Q. Was Kelley ever in your house?</p>
<p>Alien. He has lived in the neighbourhood ever since harvest, and has been at my house several times for bread, cheese, bear, &c. When she had done that, he bid her open all the doors of the house, that they might not be suspected of the fact. She confessed she went in again, and did accordingly, and took the money out, and 27 shillings was found upon her. This was before Justice Cooper at Bushey: and before Justice Holt she said the same. Kelley denied it all.</p>

<p>Kenney. Yes, my Lord, she went out twice. Next morning after the robbery was discovered, widow Alien said her table near the window, at which the prisoner came in, was bloody; I said

We found the persons, we suspected, had set out for Ireland. I and another man took horses, and rode after the Prisoner Royan, and took her between Bushey and Watford, this was on the 15th. Then upon her confession, Kelley was taken up; she and her husband was together. She owned on the 18th, before Justice Holt, the taking the things which the widow had lost. Kelley would not acknowledge any thing. Here is her own confession she made before Justice Cooper. I saw her sign it Nov. 15. at Bushey. The Justice delivered the money to me; there was a guinea in gold, and a 5 s. piece.</p>

I was talking with a gentlewoman at our door, the prisoner seeing a bill put up (lodgings to let) he came and asked me what lodgings; I told him a first and second floor unfurnished, all to be let together. He desired to see them; he went up stairs, and I followed him. He saw the rooms, and went down again, and said he lik'd the apartment very well. He cheapened them. I told him my master could let them for 25 l a year. He said the person he came from would not grudge that money. He put his hand upon the lock, and opened the fore parlour door. and went in, and I followed him. He asked whether there was any body belonging to the house at home. He likewise asked me if there was any body living in the house who belonged to the silversmith trade; saying, they were very disturbing. Then he asked me for a pen, ink, and paper; I told him my master had got them out with him. He asked me to get him a pencil; I told him I could not find one. He pulled out a pocket book, and desired me to look about, but I did not go out of the room. Then he asked me for some small beer, I told him we had none. He begged for God's sake for a glass of water; so I went down stairs, and heard him move from out of the fore parlour into the back parlour; I flew up again with the water in my hand, and as I was coming up I saw him thrust something into his left side under his coat.</p>
<p>Q. How far did you go for the water?</p>
<p>Jerrat : But just to the bottom of the stairs. He took the water out of my hand, and as he was drinking it, I clapped my hand on his left breast, and asked him what he had got there. He gave me the glass, and put his hand to my throat, and swore an oath, and bid me let him go.</p>
<p>Q. Did he hurt you with his hand ?</p>
<p>Jerrat. I cannot say he hurt me much; I let him go, and as he was going by, I put my head out of the fore parlour, and cry'd out stop thief; when he saw my head out at the window, he turn'd side way to me, and said, will you, will you do it? Then I bolted the parlour-door, left he should come in again; then he went off, I am sure the Prisoner at the bar is the very person, his face is remarkable to be known.</p>

I was going through the street when this thing happen'd, I saw the Prisoner go from Mr. Fetchen's house, he came out in a violent hurry, and ran down the street as hard as he could; I hearing the cry of stop thief, and seeing nobody run after him, I ran myself, I followed him to a house where he went into.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him all the way he ran ?</p>
<p>Munk. I once lost sight of him, but soon got sight of him again; and he would often as he run put it farther under his coat; he sometimes turn'd about to see who followed him; then I could see something like pewter or silver in his bosom : I am sure this is the same person; this was about half an hour after three o'clock in the afternoon, Nov. 30.</p>
<p>Q. How far is it from Mr. Fetchen's house to where you saw the Prisoner go in?</p>
<p>Munk. It is better than half a mile.</p>

<p>Q. Did you see any thing he had got in his coat?</p>
<p>Peares. I perceived something of a little bundle; it was wrapp'd in a silk handkerchief much in the form of a pint-pot; he staid the value of seven or eight minutes, and then went away.</p>

Upon reading the bill of exchange, I had a suspicion that it could not be a true bill; after I had read the contents, I asked the woman were she brought them from; she said, from 'Squire Jones's, at Mr. Pomeroy's, who is clerk of the check at Deptford: immediately I called one of our servants, and whispered him, to fetch a constable, which he did; at the constable's coming, I charged him with this woman; she seemed to be in some terror, and confest she did not bring them from Deptford, but from a person that was now in the Marshalsea prison for debt; I ordered the constable to carry her to the Poultry-counter, and detain her there for some time, and suffer no person to come to speak with her; in the afternoon we took her over to Southwark, before justice Hammond, who sent a proper officer to the Marshalsea prison for the Prisoner; upon examining him, this woman there charged him, with having those papers she delivered to me, of him that morning; the prisoner himself confest, that he did deliver to this woman some papers, pretending he had sent her of an errand into Goodman's-fields; Justice Hammond thought fit to commit her: we have received a letter from Sir Watkin, by the post, and have answered this letter, and have had returns back: this is not like the letter I have had from Sir Watkin; it is something in his manner, but not at all like his.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174812070015"/> times in the morning, the 6th of Sept. At first it was long, then he took it, and did it up less; then I went directly. This I told Justice Hammond.</p>
<p>Ald. Ironside. I heard her say this before the Justice.</p>
<p>Gauler. He bid me not to say that I had it out of the Marshalsea prison. If I should be asked any questions, I was to say I brought it from Deptford.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you known the Prisoner?</p>
<p>Gauler. I have known him about two or three weeks; ever since he came a prisoner there.</p>
<p>Q. Was the letter in the same plight when you delivered it to the Alderman, as when you received it of Jones?</p>
<p>Gauler. Yes, I am certain of that; for it never went out of my hands. Every thing was in it when the Prisoner gave it me, as was when I delivered it to Mr. Ironside. This I declare upon oath.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know what sort of business the Prisoner followed before he came to gaol?</p>
<p>Gauler. I have heard him say he was a sailor.</p>
<p>Prisoner to Gauler. Had you no more letters besides mine that morning to deliver?</p>
<p>Gauler. I had; but the Prisoner begged and prayed I would carry his; so I delivered the other back again. I had none but his letter when I set out to go.</p>
