<p>Symonds. There was no body by; then he went out of the room and the young woman came in and ask'd me, how much I would pay for a bed? I said, I'd pay as a merchant, a groat or six pence. Then she went away again, and another young woman came in and asked me if I was ready to go to bed? this was about eight o'clock. After that I pull'd out a book, and was reading: I had also a pen and ink, and wrote down how to call for beer, butter, &c. I went to bed a little before nine: a young woman lighted me up, and she gave me to understand by signs, I must turn the candle upside down when I was in bed. I gave her to understand I should knock with my stick when I was in bed, for her to fetch it, which I did, and she came up and fetch'd it accordingly, and lock'd the door, and went down stairs. Then I am sure I had the girdle and money about my body upon my shirt; I went to bed so. When it was almost twelve o'clock, I heard the door come open, and saw my landlord, the prisoner, come into the room with a candle in his hand alone. I started up in my bed and ask'd him in Dutch what was the matter? he answered, sleep, sleep, there were no curtains to the bed, the landlord went away, and lock'd the door. I did not move out of the bed but went to sleep, and I believe it was between three and four o'clock, some body took hold on me and put a hand to my mouth, and with his knee squeez'd me to the bed. I struggled up and there were two men, it was the prisoner that took hold on me, I could see his face by the moon light; the other person took from me my girdle and money, and went to the window and drew back the curtain, and shot the money out into his hat. I found the girdle in the room on the ground; the girdle produced in Court made of leather like a purse.</p>
<p>Q. Could you distinguish the prisoner's face before the curtain of the window was drawn back?</p>
<p>Symonds. No, I could not: he continued holding my mouth; when the other had the money in his hat, I heard him say to the prisoner, I have got the money; then he took the money from the other person, and went down stairs. I got up and opened the window, and call'd I am in distress, once or twice, &c. in the German language, this was as soon as they were out of the room: I heard them lock the door, they came in again directly upon my calling out at the window. The prisoner stood behind, the other person came, and knock'd me down; and in the mean time gave me a punch in the face; I don't know with what; then he took a knife and held to my throat, and said; bush, bush - your life : from which I understood, if I did not hold my tongue, my life was in danger. When they went down, I went to the door, to see if it was fast, and found it shut; I held my shirt up to the wound on my head; he shew'd a small scar on the top of his head: I put my cloaths on, and went to go down but did not chuse it. I watch'd at the window; when it was daylight somebody came and opened the door softly, when there was a coach call'd at the door. I went down, and the coach was gone; the landlord and two servants stood at the door; I went to him and said, you have my money, (in Dutch.)</p>
<p>Q. Repeat it in the same manner you did then?</p>
<p>Symonds. I said, you have my moone when you knock me down, you must be slung by the naik, (making signs to his neck) they laught at me; then I laid down my stick and my knapsack at the door, and went away towards London; a servant came after me, and desired me to come back ; I did, then the landlord shook his hand to me, and desired the servant to hold me fast. I was affrighted and took up my things and went away, crying. I went to the Coach and Horses, where I had quartered the week before at Hounslow, there I complained and shew'd my bloody shirt, but could not make them understand what I said, Then I went to Brentford ; there I had chang'd a ducat, and had about five shillings English money in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Did the two persons that came into your room search your breeches?</p>
<p>Symonds. No, they did not: when I came to London I complain'd to a merchant, Higham Levi, of whom I had be spoke watches to the value of a 100 l. I had also offer'd 40 l. for some second hand cloaths, that came from the Princess of Wales's ; I had also been looking upon some knives, and corkscrews, and was to have paid for these things, when I came back from Bristol.</p>
<p>Q. How came you, as you was to dispose of so
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175109110004"/> much money in London, to carry it all with you to Bristol, such dangerous times for robbing as is now?</p>
<p>Symonds. I only bespoke these goods.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you not lodge it in the Bank or elsewhere ?</p>
<p>Symonds. I have been a merchant ten years, and have travell'd in Turkey, and other places, and never trusted my money out of my sight.</p>
<p>On his cross examination he said, the money was first seen in England, by a custom-house officer, who had got the girdle in which it was, to search it; who seeing it was gold coin, returned it; that he also shewed one piece at the Coach and Horses at Hounslow, and told the landlady it was worth 9 s. 6 d. a week before he was robbed, where he had lain one night; that his feet were blistered, and he returned to London again; that it was very light in the room; that he had no hurt on his head before he came there that night. When he heard the coach come, it was between five and six in the morning; that the key was the inside the door when he went to bed; that there is no synagogue at Bristol, but a room where the Jews come together; that he had not sent word before hand of his coming; that 100 ducats of this money was his own, and 350 belonged to chancellor Corroney, the governor where he lives under, and the rest to another gentleman in that dominion, named Gobernator, that he was to have bought fine second-hand suits of cloaths for the governor's lady to wear, and also to buy watches for them.</p>
<p>Higham Levi deposed, they landed together at Harwich ; that they first met together at Helver, and he saw the ducats when the officer wanted to examine the girdle; that he recommended him to a lodging in Duke's place, at

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>This man, the prosecutor, came to my house, when I was in another apartment with a gentleman drinking a bottle of wine. I went into the kitchen, and was told there was a strange man in the bar room, (he had ask'd for some bread, butter and beer, some of my people had carry'd it to him) he was eating it; I went to him, and he made a sort of a congee to me two or three times, he had a lemon lay by him, which he almost insisted upon my taking, which I did, and went out of the room into the kitchen; my man came, and said he wanted a bed; said I, you know I never make beds for foot passengers; tell him he can't lie here. A little time after this, my niece came, and desir'd I would let him have a bed; said I, take the lemon, and give it him, and say it is impossible for him to lie in my house; for I have a family coming, and the servants will take up all my beds. There was a gentlewoman there, which came with my niece, and they then both desir'd I'd let him lie there that night, which I did: the chamber-maid shew'd him up stairs, and fetch'd away his candle; the next morning he came down stairs, and said he had been robb'd. I was much surprized; he said it was by two men that came in at the window, pointing up to the window. I went up-stairs, the curtains at the window were drawn, and the windows were as clean as possible, not so much as the print of a cat's foot, and the key was on the inside the door; he threw down his belt and stick, and went about half a mile towards London; he came back; said I, are not you a scoundrel and a villain to say you have been robb'd, to bring a scandal upon my house? Go and fetch a constable, said I; then he took up his things, and went away. My cook said, I have known two or three people ruin'd by such things,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175109110005"/> as those, where houses have lost their characters on such accounts. I then went with a friend with me, and pursued him as far as Brentford turnpike; we heard of him two or three times upon the road; then we went to Turnham green, where we had a Negus: we return'd back to Brentford again, but could hear nothing of him there; then we got a man to go and search all the houses in the town, to see for this Jew; we went to the Red Lion at Hounslow ; being fatigued, I staid at Mr. Roberts's till the morning, when I went home to Cranford bridge, from whence I went in a post chaise to Smithfield with another person, and bought a horse: we then went and spent the evening at Sadler's wells, from thence to the Salutation in Newgate-street, and likewise to a great many parts of the town, and were never a-part from the time we got up to the time we went to-bed; this was on Saturday: the next morning, when I got to Mr. Roberts's at Hounslow, he shew'd me the advertisement, which struck me much; I took my horse, and went home and clean'd myself; soon after came a messenger to let me know this man was in Hounslow ; I went to take my horse to go there; somebody told me he had a warrant against me; I thought it more proper to return back than to fly in the face of the warrant; every-body desir'd me to go away till I could hear what it was. I said I had no occasion to fly; they insisted upon it I should; then I went over to Hatton, but said to several friends nothing vex'd me more than to think I should fly for an innocent thing; from thence I return'd to Hounslow; then Mr. Roberts and I went in a post chaise-to London, in order to have advice ; and upon that advice, I went and surrendered myself up to justice.</p>

I am niece to Mr. Godard, who keeps the White Hart at Cranford bridge; this day fortnight, in the evening, the Jew came in about seven o'clock; our drawer and I were in the kitchen, who went into the bar room that is near the road; our drawer went to him, and came back again, and said he ask'd for beer, bread and butter; he ask'd for some water; our drawer carried him some, and presently after that Mr. Godard came: I said, uncle, there is a very odd fort of a fellow in the fore-room, they tell me he is a Hermit ; accordingly he went in, and the man pull'd off his hat, and ask'd, in English, if he was landlord ; I said, yes; he had a lemon lay by him that he had taken out of his bag, and insisted upon Mr. Godard's having it; saying, pray, sir, have it; then he took it, turn'd round, smiled, and went out of the room. I asked him, where he intended to lie? but he gave me no answer: I ask'd him again; he said he was a Polish merchant, and dealt in diamonds, watches, and such things; then I ask'd him a third time; he said, he would lie here; I then told him we never lodg'd any foot passengers. I understood him he said he would give 6 d. but since I thought he said, be at any expence, which I mention'd to Mr. Godard ; he said, how could you ask him, knowing I never lodge such kind of people ? At that time he had shew'd me no money; I told him, here is a family coming, and a gentleman and his servants would take up all our beds. He said, he would die here, for here was his money. Then I went to Mr. Godard again, and said, suppose you was in this man's country, and to be turn'd out at such a time, you would not like it; then he said, let him lie in the dining room bed, there being no furniture on that bed. Mr. Godard went to sleep. I believe, by the kitchen fire: I told the Jew he might lie there; then I found him with a book in his hand, and folding his hands together; I thought it was a prayer book. He took out a little leather purse with clapses, in which I saw about six or seven shillings, and paid me 13 d. for his eating, drinking, and bed. I asked him if he would please to go to bed; he said, he'd speak when he had a mind to go to bed. I talked to him a good while; he asked the name of the place, and I told him; he set it down in a book; I saw he wrote backwards. He asked my uncle's name, but I could not make him understand it; then I gave him a printed bill, and after that he could say

When I came down stairs between seven and eight the next morning. I heard he had been robbed; then I went up, and found there was some blood on the sheet, the bed only turned down, as is usual, when one person gets out of it, and not disturbed at all: there was one drop of blood by the window, and two or three more by the bedside; the blood looked very black, as though it had been old blood kept in a bottle two or three days.</p>

I ask'd him if he would blow the candle out? he made signs that he would knock with his stick, which he did, and I went and fetched it; he was then in bed, and I pulled too the door, which is a spring lock. I cannot tell which side of the door the key was on, but in the morning it was on the inside.

<p>Q. Did he mention what?</p>
<p>A. Phipps. He did not, my Lord; this was spoke after he had taken out and open'd his knife: he said he'd rip her up, as she did that fowl; she was drawing a fowl for dinner; she cry'd out, the rogue has stab'd me in the belly; and was fallen down. I shook the hasp off the staple, and got out, she never spoke more. He went into the house and sat down, she was brought in by 2 men, she gave one gasp after she was in. They strip'd her directly, there was a wound in what is call'd the Pope's eye, on the inside the sore part of her thigh, the other stab was in the arm; she had bled all through her cloaths; no doubt this wound was the cause of her death. She flung dirt or a brick bat at him, for hasping the door upon me (I believe) but it did not hit him; she said, you rogue, you want to ravish her, as you did you know who; then he ran to her and stabb'd her; she was my mother's own sister.</p>

I imagined they were drunken fellows playing tricks with one another; they were very dirty. The prisoner came up first with a pistol in his hand, saying, we are poor unfortunate fellows, your money, your money. Another man came on the other side, rapped at the glass, and said, your money, watches and rings, make no delay; I then gave him my silver, which was about 15 or 16 s. half a guinea, and a silver medal; then he said, your watch, don't trifle with us; I gave him that; then he saw a little ring on my finger, and said he must have that; I told him it was not worth taking, for it was only a burial ring; he said he must have it, and then I gave it him. The prisoner told the coachman not to look at him, telling him, if he did, he'd blow his brains out, and bid him not stir 'till he was at some distance; they then rode off through Highgate. I never saw the prisoner 'till that day, and about 11 or 12 days after I saw the prisoner before the justice: I described the men and the horses, for the prisoner rode a bay horse of no great value. I told the justice, I believ'd the prisoner to be the very man, and upon my oath I believe him to be one of them; I make no doubt of it, tho' I found none of my things upon him.</p>

If I could see them: this was about a quarter of a mile from a farm house; I had nothing to assist my master with, and did neither assist him, or run to call any body.

<p>Q. Was you alone?</p>
<p>Daniel. I was all alone, except my shoes tied up in a handkerchief. I saw three men standing by a lamp, two of them had hats, and one a cap: They crossed over to me: then I turned up to make water, in a yard. One of them got hold on my collar, (for they did not give me leave to button up my breeches) the other on my shoulder on the other side. I thought I saw a sword, but it was a long piece of iron. One swore he would knock my brains out if I stir'd, the other came and took off my hat, and put it on March's head; then Newman put his hand in my pocket, and took out one shilling and sixpence. March said, D - n him, he has more money; then the other took out a pen knife, and took from me my handkerchief, and shoes in it. After this they run from me, two one way, and one another; and thinking to catch one of them, I called out, stop! stop! stop! but I saw no more of them that night. I know the two prisoners were two of the men, for I saw their faces by the lamp. The Evidence and March are the two that laid hold on me. The Evidence had the one shilling and sixpence. I met with two men, to whom I related the matter, and they had like to have been taken that night. I likewise told them where I liv'd. The next day I was sent for, and went the day after that to the Horseshoe in Clerkenwell; there I saw the Evidence; then I went to the Justice's, and in going met the two prisoners coming back. I described the penknife, before I saw it, at the Justice's. [ Produced in Court, and deposed to.]</p>

On the second of September, the two prisoner and I set out from an empty house in Black-boy-Alley, about eight o'clock at night, with a full intent to rob. I had been acquainted with March about five weeks, but not so long with Newman. We came up Saffron-hill, and seeing the prosecutor, I walked by him two or three times, and looked him full in the face. I followed him into George-yard, where he was making water, and took him by the collar; Newman had this weapon in his hand; [it was produced in court ; being a piece of iron about twenty inches long, proper to break doors open with,] and March had hold on his coat, not his collar. I took the shoes tied up in his handkerchief, and gave them to Newman; the hat March had, but I took it, and also one shilling and sixpence out of his pocket. March took the pen-knife. This is the very same knife. We were pursued, and March and Newman were taken, but they got away again, and I met March at our place of rendezvous. We went then from Black-boy-Alley to St. Giles's, and I had some victuals out of the money. Next morning we were coming up Purple-lane, and Woodward Harlow laid hold on us. I went and found Newman, after I was admitted an evidence.</p>
<p>Woodward Harlow. Going into Purple-lane that night, I met one Mr. Burry. I heard a man cry stop; and seeing a lad run along I laid hold of him, crying, I have got you, but he got from me; however, I got his wig, and this piece of iron. I was told at the end of the lane, that Tim the taylor was seen with two more going through such a place. I saw the prosecutor soon after, but he made a more hubble bubble story of it then, than he has now; he was in such a slutter, I could hardly understand him. He told me he lived by the King's Bench, and mentioned the things he had lost. The next day, as I was coming home to dinner, I saw Tim the taylor (that is the evidence) and March coming along, I took them, and brought them to my room. When I told them of this robbery, I took this pen-knife out of March's pocket; upon which he fell a crying, and said if I would let him go to his father, and give him that knife, his father should give me twenty guineas. Tim said, I am a neighbour's child, and,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175109110012"/> if I don't do it, he will. Will you speak to the Justice to get me admitted an evidence? March said, he was out of his senses, or the devil was in him when he did it. I sent for Mr. Burry. Then I left March in my room, and took Tim to shew as where Newman was. He took us to Goswell-street, were we took him, and carried him before the Justice; then we took him to March, and March fell a crying. Said Newman, You whining son of a b - ch, what do you cry for, confess and be hang'd, you can do no more at last? Newman owned the wig, and my having him in my arms the night the robbery was done, but would not own to the iron.</p>
<p>Newman's Defence.</p>
<p>Coming along I met Tim the taylor; he stopt me, and said what chear? I knew him by fight, and he asked me to go and drink part of a pint of beer; I reply'd, I don't care if I do. He took me up to a wall, and bid me stay there; then he brought me a hat and a knife; as soon as he had brought them, a man came and called out thief; another man laid hold of me, but I slipped from him, and he got my wig in custody.</p>
<p>March's Defence.</p>
<p>I was with the other prisoner. We met Tim the taylor, who said he was going to his master's house, but being afraid to go in, we staid waiting about a good while; at last he came running down from George-yard, and put the hat on my head, and gave me the pen-knife, saying I might keep it, for he did not want it. Then Woodward Harlow came and laid hold of this lad, and called out stop thief; I ran, but did not know what it was for. I met Tim about an hour afterwards, he asked me to go and dine off of a shoulder of mutton and onions; I went, but the woman had none; then she put on a sauce-pan, and boiled a whole breast of mutton. She then sent out a young woman for some strong liquor, and Harlow came in, and said if I would not fit still, he would blow my brains out. He took the knife that Tim gave me directly from my pocket. I did not know he had robbed any body.</p>

I took hold on him, and led him out of the Church, and warn'd 2 men, Groble and Elice to my assistance; I took him to Samuel Collington's, at the sign of the Walnut-tree at Benacre ; then I sent to Southwould for several officers to come to my assistance; the messenger met Mr. Goodwin upon the road; he had been my supervisor, he came to me; presently after in

You shall release him then, says he; and I answer'd. I will not. It shall be worse for you, continues he, for you shall help his family; said I, let them help them, who brought him to destruction. The other person was armed with a carbine, a brace of pistols, and a hanger, who said, G - d d - n your blood, I will fire upon you, if you do not release Holt; said I, I do not fear you. I went into the house, where I had a brace of pistols, and Mr. Goodwin had two, who said he would die with me. We then stripped, and went out with our pistols cocked in our hands, in order to fire upon them, if they did not go away; but they rode off. Then I thought it advisable to get Holt farther off, so ordered my assistants to go with me to Kissingland. We went there to

We were apprehensive the smugglers were assembling at Benacre, we agreed to remove him further. I went out of Welch's house, in order to get a horse, and knowing a by-road, I thought to cheat the smugglers; but I had not been out of the house ten minutes before the gang came. I came with the horse into a narrow lane, but before I got out of it, I saw Old York, the prisoner, whom I knew before, coming up at the head of a gang of armed men.

I got into a hedge to conceal myself, and letting the horse go, he went straight home. The moon was about full, and being a light night, I saw all their behaviour. There was a single piece fired before a word was spoke, that I heard; then Old York called out, G - d d - n your soul, resign your prisoner. The gang then drew up against the house. After that they had surrounded it, Old York gave no time for me to consult my assistants, but immediately ordered the whole gang to fire; by his directions they continued firing near an hour, and they shot down 169 quarries of glass from the windows; and there happening to be four gentlemen lodged in the house that night, one of them knew

I went and paid Mr. Stowe ten pounds for the redemption of them. I had some more afterwards, part of them are at home, and part disposed of.</p>
<p>[More books produced, brought by another person to Mr. Worrall.]</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Woolse. Look at these, and see if Mr. Lloyd's name is his own hand-writing.</p>
<p>Mr. Woolse looks at several of them, and deposes it is his hand-writing.</p>
<p>Mr. Worrall. I bought more books afterwards of Mr. Stowe, which made the former up thirteen pounds; and Mrs. Wilson received the money of me; who said the books belong'd to her. That with the name reversed on the backside, she said was her book.</p>

I had a black boy with me on horseback; I ordered him to follow him through the town, and raise the town. I saw no more of him till one day this week, when I saw him in the Bail-Dock.</p>

I said I did not value him, nor his pistols neither. I got up to him, and ask'd him if he would surrender? but he rode on; I then struck him twice with my whip; he went to shoot me with a pistol over his left shoulder; I then took him by the collar, and he fired that instant, and some of the powder blew into my face, for I was behind him. I then pulled him off, and we both fell between the horses, who ran away; I got upon his back, and pulled his hands behind him, and he called out to me not to use him ill, saying he was a dead man; this was on Smallberry green. Then a great many people came up after I had secured him, and Mr. Carpenter searched his pockets, and took out the things produced here. The things were all delivered to the Justice. He was dressed in a large blue coat, a black waistcoat, a light-coloured coat under the great coat, and his hair tied up behind. I did not pursue him above a quarter of a mile.</p>
