I had seen the woman before, and a person gave me intelligence where she lived; I went to her house, and there was a man made answer and said, she was not at home; (we could hear her whisper ) I went back again, and we carried Warwick to New-prison; my lodger said when we came back, if I would go down to the woman, she would open the door to me; he was drinking with them that night in my house, but he has hid himself, and I cannot find him; I fear the woman has sent him out of the way; we went again, and he knocked, and she immediately let him in, and the constable took charge of her; the justice thought proper to admit her to bail. I never saw the tankard since. We searched Warwick to see if he had any knife, or such instruments about him, and I am sure he could not have the tankard about him: the justice admitted Warwick to bail, and upon Thursday evening he took the Prisoner, and sent for me, and he was secured; they went away between 8 or 9 o'clock.</p>

I met the Prisoner, I had not seen him for 4 or 5 Years; he said to me, shall we not drink together ? I said with all my heart. Said I, I'll go to the Hercules and Pillars, in Bow-lane. No, said he, I'll go to a friend at the bottom of Bread-street. We went there, and Mrs. Dyke rapp'd at the sash window, at the Bull's-head: We went in, and drank 7 or 8 Tankards of beer. Said she, I have money to receive of a man who is to meet me at the Hampshire-hog, in Goswell-street. I went with the prisoner and her there, and they staid till about 8 or 9 o'clock; they pretended to play at cards, and after that there came in a man, whom, she said, she was to receive some money of, his name is Hosier, (the person the prosecutor mentioned, who is gone out of the way.) They talked to themselves some time. The company that was at the fire mov'd from it, and we went to it, all but the prisoner at the bar, who kept his place behind the door, on the left hand: This was about an hour before they went away. When the beer came about, he said, he did not care to drink; by and bye I heard liquor spill, I turn'd and saw something like a tankard in his hand, and he cover'd it under the right hand flap of his coat; it was about half cover'd: Presently I heard liquor spill again. I went betwixt the woman, and the man of whom she was to receive money, and whisper'd them, saying, I feared we should come into trouble, for, I thought, he was going to steel away a tankard. She said, pshaw, pshaw. The man made no answer. At going away the woman went first out at the door, and I second, the prisoner after me; he had his left hand under his coat, with something like a pot or a tankard in that hand: I turn'd back at the door, and said, I must speak with this man, meaning Hosier ; but the prisoner laid hold of the skirt of my coat, and said, come along, you have no business with that man I am sure. I told Hosier the prisoner had got a tankard under his coat, or something like it. Said Hosier to the Girl, see if there be any thing missing ? Said I, it will be the best way to go, in the first place, after the man. The Constable was sent for, and I desired he would be so good as to go and take the woman, thinking she would not deny what I whisper'd to her, of my suspicion about the prisoner. The Friday following I took the prisoner in Bedford-court, coming down to Covent-garden: I did not charge him with the thing then, because I had heard of his Character; so I took him to a public house, sent for a constable, charg'd him, and sent for the Prosecutor.</p>

I sat down with my back to the prisoner, and heard something spill; I thought somebody had been spewing, or there was water running; the others sat by the fire at this time. I did not see the tankard then, nor have I seen it since I saw it standing behind his back. When I heard it I look'd round, and look'd hard at the prisoner, and he look'd hard at me; then Mr. Warwick call'd for another pot of beer, and I heard beer spill again: then there were 7 d. half penny to pay, the prisoner desired the woman to pay for him, and he would pay her again.

On the 13th of Dec. the day after last Sessions, Brannam being just turned out of Newgate, I went the next day to see him in Webb-Square, there was Purcel with him; he asked me to make Purcel drink, I said I had no money; said he, pawn your ha for a shilling ; said Purcel, I'll pawn my shuttle, and at night I shall get more money; he sent me for it, I brought it, we went to the George and called for a pot of beer, he paid for it, and had three-pence half-penny left, so he would have a dram for each to put us in spirits: said Dennes Brannam, I'll go for a hammer and chissel, and I'll either have money, or I'll go where I come from again. The time he was gone from us, Purcel and I was going down Webb-Square, he made a blow at a Man with a stick and miss'd him, I hit him and knock'd him down, and took his hat, and gave it to Purcel; he went and pawned it for 1 s. 6 d. then we went to the Ship Alehouse in Webb Square, and had a pint of gin which cost 6 d. Brannam came in with two young fellows, so we drank one shilling and six-pence out there. Then we went out, (either to get money by house-breaking, or knocking people down and robbing them) we went along Shore-ditch, and opposite to the Black Dog, there was a sellar open, said Brannam, stay here, I'll go in and see if I can buy a shirt ; the boy belonging to the seller said, Brannam, what are you doing? Brannam came out, seeing the

<p>Q. to Whiffin. Was there a man along with you?</p>
<p>Whiffin. There was, my Lord; it was my uncle, who had been along with me; he walked about two yards before me, but he did not see me knock'd down.</p>
<p>St. Lawrence. Brannam took the hammer out of his bosom, he hit the Prosecutor with it on the side of the head, I struck at him at the same time with a stick, but Brannam's blow fetched him down; I did not hurt him much; then Brannam took his hat and wig; we did intend to take what money he had, but the watch, or some people, came making a noise, so we were obliged to run; Brannam delivered the hat and wig to me; I put the wig on my head, and gave the hat to Purcel, we crossed the way, and ran down the same side of the way the robbery was done. After we had been on the other side a little time, Brannam and I went through Magpye Alley to his brother-in-law's house in Phenix-street; presently up comes Purcel, said Brannam, what signifies staying here, let's go and get some more money. The hat we left there. We went out, and going thro' Wheeler-street, we met another man, and struck at him several times before we could get him down, at last we did; Brannam gave him the last blow with the hammer ; the people came out of the houses, and the place began to be in an uproat; we took his hat and wig and ran away; then we went to White Chapel, and struck at a man there; he staggered against a shop, and we took his hat and wig, and ran away. This was about eleven o'clock.</p>
<p>Dugley Macanley. Brannam told me the day after the robbery, he was the man that knocked down the prosecutor, and took his hat and wig, and also that he knocked down another man in Houndsditch the same night, and another in White-Chapel: He in Houndsditch was so hurt by the blow, that the blood comes out at his ears; I saw him last Sun-day.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175001170009"/> I saw him that very night he died, and heard him say, his death proceeded from those six men beating of him: He said several times to his wife, make yourself easy, and I hope in God those fellows will be made to suffer; and after he was dead, I saw conjealed blood round his neck and on his breast. I wanted to have been heard before the coroner, but a gentleman belonging to him would not let me in.</p>

I was present when the woman Gains was examined. I did not observe the least obstruction made by the coroner. There was one witness came when Mr. Wright the coroner was summing up the evidence, and that person was refused. On his cross-examination, he said, whether the coroner laugh'd or not, he could not tell, and that he thought, upon the whole evidence, that the matter was a trifling affair.</p>

It was very evident he had received sad blows on his head, which was a good deal swelled; his pulse was very quick; I bled him very largely; I thought he had been drinking. I saw him again the next day, between ten and eleven, he was prodigiously better, but still complain'd of pain, but I have seen people at a boxing-match beat a great deal more, and done well again; his eye was only a common black eye, it was very much swelled. I went before justice Fielding, and said I did not think his Life was in danger, and the affair was made up: (to another Q. he says, he thought him in but very little danger) adding, his head was swelled about as big as half my fist about the face. I saw the deceased when dead, the day the coroner attended his body. There was nothing particular appeared that could be the cause of his death, neither do I think his death was occasioned by what he received this 10th of December.</p>

<p>Q to the Prosecutrix. Did you hear your husband complain of getting cold?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. No. my Lord, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. to Greenwood. Did you see any blood in the pot, or corruption?</p>
<p>Greenwood. I always looked in the pot, there was a rough matter, but not the least appearance of blood; his head was tied up, and as to his eye, I did not see it needed any surgeon's business; there was a little fullness on one eye more than the other; I did not examine his head; I laid two blisters on his arms, and two on his back, and had he been bruised, as mentioned, I must have seen it when I stripp'd down his cloathes ; I saw no bruises. The day after he was dead I saw him, he was very black in those parts, and down one side; but this is common to persons who die a natural death, I have seen it in children and grown persons. I believe the catching of cold was the occasion of his death, and not his being beat; he complained of very short breath; I talked with the deceased in conversation; he said he had been beat a great deal worse than this, and got well sooner.</p>

Then I heard the Footsteps of two or three people; the Ground being very wet, I could hear them step. I believe they came out of the Thistle and Crown, for there was a light as I came by: I said again, come along, Hans, I hear some people coming up. The common path-way was ancle-deep, so I was got upon higher ground, he being in liquor kept the path, and went through the dirt; as near as I can recollect it was about the middle of the field; I was about 20 or 30 yards before him, when I heard some blows struck, but no words. I heard Mr. Fowler say, pray don't murder a poor distressed Sailor ; I saw two or three men with large sticks, beating him as he lay on the ground: Two I can swear to. On my turning my head, the prisoner at the bar came up to me, his particular voice I well know, he said, d - n you, you raseal, you villain, your watch and your money, or I'll cut you to pieces. He had got a large stick in his hand, which I took to be a mop or broom-stick, swinging it over my head, attempting to strike at me: I put myself in a posture of defence, so that he never touch'd my head. I having a slight oak-stick in my hand, kept him off, and desired him to be easy; he found I wanted to make to the low ground, so got between me and that place, swearing, at the same time, he'd cut me to pieces if I did not surrender. When he found I could not escape he came to close quarters : He had got either a sword or a bayonnet, I know not which, but he prick'd me in the forehead ; I fell backwards, and he fell down ; as he fell I heard something chink : He held fast hold of my hand, and I of his waistcoat, by his trembling he seemed as much afraid of me as I was of him. I had five Guineas in one pocket, and some Silver in the other, I put my hand in with an intent to sling down two or three of the Guineas
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175001170012"/> on the ground, knowing they would not easily find them again till the morrow; he catch'd my hand at the same time, and took the five Guineas from me: The others had got my friend all along, so I begg'd he would not hurt me, nor let my friend be murder'd; I told him I had no watch. Then he walk'd as contentedly as any man could do by my side, while I went back and took up my friend. I said my friend had no money; the others, I suppose, heard what I said, and knowing he had got five Guineas of me, made off. My friend was all over dirt, so I went immediately into the Robin-hood and Little-john, being robb'd within about 20 yards of that house. There was the man of the house, and three or four Invalids drinking ; I told them what had happened, saying, if they could make haste and get help, we might take them before they got over the fields. The man of the house seeing the wound on my forehead, said it was done with a bayonnet : His wife fetch'd down a gun; said he, I cannot go without my shoe-buckles, and then he had his bitch to call. We came out with his Candle to see for Mr. Fowler's stick; but they had taken that away with them.

I told him, that he had been used very dirtily; he stood upon the Titter-Totter, being in liquor. I went with Mr. Harris to Harp-alley; on the Saturday 7-night, going by Somerset-house, there was a soldier stood century; said Mr. Harris, that is one of the Men who was in company at my house the night Mr. Miller was robb'd; when I got home, I went up to Mr. Babb, and desired him to go and acquaint Mr Miller, that I had saw a Man whom Mr. Harris said was in company with the man who robb'd him that night, at his house: Then Mr. Miller and Mr. Babb came and called upon me, and we all three went to Mr. Harris's. We four went to the Parade, and saw the guards reliev'd; I shewed Mr. Miller the man I saw upon guard; Mr. Miller said, he knew nothing of him. While we was talking, the prisoner was coming along, Mr. Miller said, as soon as he saw him, that is the man who robbed me; Mr. Harris said, that is the man you describ'd to me. Mr. Harris call'd the prisoner to him; Mr. Miller went up to him, and walk'd round him, and said afterwards, he was well satisfied he was the Man.

The Prisoner tore my waistcoat, and push'd my horse out of his step. I thought he had been drunk; I swore at him, but he went along, and hurry'd, swinging his hands, &c. I did not think he had took my watch, 'till I came to the spurr inn in the borough. I met a friend, and went to drink a glass of wine there, going to pay for it, I missed my watch. I went home, and, as soon as I alighted from my horse, I went to the Maker, and had it advertised; and, from the 2d day of advertising it, I heard of it. I looked to see what o'clock it was, when I was at St. James's, and I saw the seal, with the anchor and the Key hung to it, as I was coming down Fish-street-hill.</p>

I asked her whose it was? she told me, it was a gentleman's at the boot in Princes-street. I thought it might be taken as people came from the play, as the play was just done. I told the woman, I should stop it 'till she brought the owner. She went out, and brought the prisoner at the bar, who told me, it was his watch; then came in another man, and said, it is mine; so give me it, or he would hurt me; then, I said, I would not give it him without his first telling the name. Upon that, he said, he would not, but he would have the watch. It had a green string to it, and the place where a seal should hang, was fresh cut. Before I gave it back, I took the name and number of it upon a card; the maker's name, Sewil, No. 540, Senier. I gave the other man the watch again. So on the 20th of October, I saw a watch advertis'd, lost upon London-bridge, the 18th of October, the name as this. No. forgot. I thought proper to let the man know, that such a thing was offered to me, which I did. The prosecutor came over the water, and asked me, what sort of a man it was? I describ'd him; he said, by the description, it was the same man that did the robbery. Then we went to Justice Fielding's, and took out a warrant, and took up the woman; and we took out a warrant, by the descriptions of the two men; the woman was in custody 'till last sessions. I being attending here, and saw this person come to give evidence, I went home, and got the warrant, and had him secured.</p>
