<p>John Alien. I saw my shop shut up about 10 o'clock at night, the 25th of Feb. It is part of my dwelling house. My servant called me up about four; I found my shutter had a hole cut in it so as to get in a hand. It was fastened with two iron pins within side. I missed four silver watches, one of them had a shagreen outside case, a hanger mounted with silver, a silver salt, and two silver tea spoons.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen them last?</p>
<p>Alien. I saw them over night about 8 o'clock, they hung on small hooks in the window. I advertised them twice ; after the second time some body knocked at my door, my servant open'd it, and in going to shut it there lay two of the dial plates to two of the watches. Produced in court and sworn to, having the maker's name upon them.</p>
<p>Q. What reason have you to suspect the prisoner?</p>
<p>Alien. One Mr. Philipson had taken him up on some other account ; he brought him to me, there he confessed, and also before Justice Chamberlaine that he put these plates at my door; that he and another person cut the hole in the shutter, and took the things mentioned, and that the salt had a crest on it, for which reason he beat it, and the silver hilt to pieces, and sold them in several places.</p>

He desired me try to get Justice Chamberlaine to admit him an evidence, telling me he had broke open this gentleman's shop, and that he had pawned the watches in Grubstreet. I went and acquainted the Justice with it: he gave me an order to take him out of New-prison and go with him to where the watches were pawned. So I and the keeper went with him to the house of Mr. Belomey; the prisoner asked for the shagreen watch which he had pawned in his own name for 7 s. 6 d. He brought the watch down, and we paid for it. Then he asked for a silver watch in another name, that was also produced; then we told the pawnbroker he had broke open a shop and stole them, and if he'd go along with us he might be satisfied about it. Then the prisoner took us to Mr. Alien's house, we asked him if his house had been broke open, he said, yes, and that he should know the goods he lost could he see them. We shewed him the 2: watches, he owned them. Then Mr. Alien asked the prisoner how he could do such a thing ; he answered, the watchman was coming by once in the time, and that he stood with his back to the hole that he might not discover it.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I asked the keeper of the prison if he would buy such things, for they told me I should be either hanged or transported for what I was taken up for. He went to the pawnbrokers and looked at the watches ; he said he knew they were stole by the advertisement, so he carried me to the prosecutor's house; he wanted me to be evidence against another young lad: I cleared him. I found these two watches in Spittlefield's market tied up in a handkerchief.</p>

I have seen the prisoner there several times among the smugglers; he came there on the 9th of March 1746 at night, and staid there all the next day. There were 14 or 15 of them at our house armed in general with pieces slung across them. The prisoner had a piece flung when he went away towards the sea, which was on the 11th about 12 o'clock, having an account brought that the cutter was come in; there were others at Royal's house went with them.</p>
<p>Q. How far is Horsey from the sea side?</p>

<p>James Mills. I happened to go into the chamberlain's office between one and two on the second of June; coming out again the prisoner was between Mr. Pilgrim and I; I, being behind, saw him run his hand into Mr. Pilgrim's pocket and take out his handkerchief. When I detected him he threw it down on the ground. The prisoner wanted to run away. Mr. Pilgrim came back and owned it, I had it in my hand when he came back. He insisted that the prisoner had taken it, but he denied it. I believe I laid it upon his hand.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>As I was going home I saw several people going into Guildhall, so I went, thinking to pass a quarter of an hour there. They were making free several young men. The office was ordered to be cleared ; a great number went out together ; going down stairs there lay a red handkerchief, and I was going to pick it up, but a man said, it is none of your's, and I said, it is none of your's; he then said, I suppose you picked somebody's pocket of it. A gentleman came out and said, you ought to carry him to the alderman, because a gentleman has lost several bank notes in a pocket book. Then this gentleman said he had lost his handkerchief ; so they took me before alderman Chitty, and he asked the man whether he was a housekeeper, and he said he lived in Bear-and-Ragged-staff-yard Whitechapel. I sent a person there, who said no such person lived in that place.</p>

I suppose by my turning up my coat he saw my watch, which he demanded, but I was unwilling to part with it. (My wife pushed forwards.) He thrust the point of his sword against my rib, and fearing it would have went through my cloaths, I took hold of it with both hands, and argued with him in a soft manner, saying, I had more money in my left hand pocket, which I would give him if he would not have the watch. I strove to break his sword, but he was too much for me. He pulled his sword out of my hands, and tumbled backwards down the hill, and I fell a little on one side. He recovered and attacked me again for my watch, holding the point of his sword towards me. Then I pulled the watch out of my pocket, which he took and ran away with. I saw him as he ran the best part of the field with the watch in his hand. I advertised the watch, and Mr. Walbank. a pawnbroker, sent for me the very day I advertised it, being the 9th of May.</p>
<p>Q. Are you certain the prisoner is the man?</p>

On the 6th of May as we were going to Islington, coming into the second field the prisoner passed us and walked briskly along. I saw him afterwards standing with his back against the rails that we were to go through. He held down his head and drew his sword by degrees, saying, I want your money, give me your money, as fast as he could speak, and pointed his sword to my husband's breast. I expected nothing but murder. I pushed on, and went three fields before I found any body. I did not see the robbery committed, but am sure this is the very man that stopped us.</p>

<p>Walbank. It is.</p>
<p>Q. to Carrol. Did you ever carry above one to him?</p>
<p>Carrol. No, I never did, and that was about six weeks ago. The prisoner was acquainted with my mistress for whom I work, which was the reason he sent me with it. I had before pawned three or four shirts for him. He bid me ask three guineas upon the watch.</p>

<p>A man gave me the watch to pawn for two guineas, and I got but a guinea and half.</p>

<p>William Norton. The chaise to the Devises having been robbed two or three times, as I was informed, I was desired to go in it to see if I could take the thief, which I did.

I took out a pistol from my coat pocket, and from my breeches pocket a five shilling piece and a dollar, and held the pistol concealed in one hand and the money in the other. I held the money pretty hard, he said, put it in my hat. I let him take the five shilling piece out of my hand: As soon as he had taken it I snap'd my pistol at him, it did not go off; he staggered back, and held up his hands, and said, O

There was a woman that lay on the same floor came down stairs and followed the prisoner between two and three on Monday morning, who came into my room, awaked me, and said, that the prisoner told her he had killed his wife. Before I had struck a light I heard him say so, he was at my bed's feet. I asked how he could talk so; he said he had almost cut her head off. My wife lighted a match, and I saw the blood run off his arm to his breeches; he was bloody as high as his elbow. I made my wife lock the door while I called the constable. When I came back he was sitting where I left him. We carried him to the Roundhouse. When we returned we went up into his room, and there lay his wife on her back on the floor, with her face on one side near the chimney ; her throat was cut, her head almost off, and a bloody knife was lying in the window.

<p>John Hall. Last Thursday se'nnight I had been in the Borough, staid late, and was in liquor. I could not get into my lodgings in Grey's-Inn-lane. I was going from thence to Westminster to an acquaintance there, and passing by the new church in the Strand this woman came cross the way to me and asked me to go with her and drink some Dorchester ale. I went to a place which she said was the Black Swan between the new church and Exeter Change. I drank but one glass of beer. She then asked me to give her some shrub. which I did, and a bottle to take home with her. I staid there about half an hour, and paid three shillings for what we had, I changed a guinea, and I believe in pulling out that she saw another which I took out with it. She wanted me to go home with her, which I did to a house

She seemed to speak as though I should not have to do with her for that; I said I did not desire it I only wanted to go to bed for the conveniency of the bed, and said, give me my money again. Presently she said, you shall give me half a guinea; she slapped my face and gave me several blows. Then I came to my senses. She said, I will have your money, and there are them in the house that will prevent your telling tales, if you don't give it me, and affected a hem, calling Dick. She put her hand into her pocket and said, if you don't give it me I'll rip your guts out directly. I told her I was as strong as she; upon which she said, I should be murdered if I did not comply, so I pulled out all I had in one pocket, which was half a guinea and four or five pennyworth of halfpence, and laid them on the table ; she scrabbled it up, put it in her pocket, and said, she would have more, and that I had a guinea more. I told her I had not, and desired her to give me the halfpence again for a breakfast, but she still insisted upon having a guinea more or I should never go out of the house. At last I got out by swearing I never would take her before a justice or meddle with her. I immediately got a watchman, who talked to her as she looked out at the window. She told him he was no constable. Then came a beadle, to whom an old woman opened the door. They took the prisoner to the Roundhouse. The woman of the house offered me my money again.</p>

The dyer brought in 9 half pieces of popinger green, about 21 or 22 yards each. The prisoners took 9 yards from the nine head ends, and when it came to the India house the inspectors did not find it out.</p>
<p>Q. What is popinger green sold for per yard?</p>
<p>Richardson. It is worth about three shillings.</p>
<p>Q. Do others trade in popinger green besides the India company?</p>
<p>Richardson. The Turkey company did formerly, but latterly they do but very little.</p>
<p>Q. What reason have you to suspect the prisoners at the bar?</p>
<p>Richardson. When we have measured pieces, we have found them short before this, but the evidence Briggs, who was recommended to me for an honest man from Yorkshire, and I think he is an honest man, he'll give you an account of the affair.</p>
<p>

<interp inst="t17520625-40-person265" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I was bred a clothworker in the town of Wakefield in Yorkshire, and had not worked at my business in London before last November. When I came to Mr. Richardson, the two prisoners were employed as journeymen with me. We had some half pieces about six quarters wide, and 21 or 22 yards long; the two prisoners measured them over to see what length they would come to, and what was over 21 yards they tore off from the head end. There was a yard taken from each half piece.</p>
<p>Q. Who tore it off?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175206250015"/>Briggs. Barnes did, but Keeling was assisting, then they were all thrown together. After that Barnes gave me three yards and Keeling three, and kept three himself. He said it was a thing done in all clothworkers shops throughout London, that all their aprons were made of the same, and cut off in that manner. After they were cut off, they then being wet, are put upon the tainters, and stretched out to the length, so as to seem to be as before.</p>
<p>Q. Must not this stretching be detrimental to the clothes?</p>
<p>Briggs. It is to be sure.</p>
<p>Q. Was it usual to do so, where you have worked before?</p>
<p>Briggs. I never worked in London above six weeks, but I never saw the like before.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do with your three yards?</p>
<p>Briggs. I kept mine about a month, and thought to have given it away; but meeting with a Yorkshire man, one Bothman, whom I knew, he asked me if I had got any cloth, I said I had got three short yards, which I thought to give away; he called me a fool, and said he would dye them of a Saxon green, then I might sell them. I let him have them to dye, which cost me sixteen pence; after which he got a taylor to go along with me to sell them in Shoemaker Row, which I did for 3 half crowns to a piece broker.</p>
<p>Barnes's Defence.</p>
<p>Mr. Richardson knows we have of these popinger greens which come in that are not thirty nine yards long in the whole cloths, and the half cloths must run in proportion to the whole. It is impossible to pull these from thirty nine to forty eight if we pull them bit by bit.</p>
<p>Keeling's Defence.</p>
<p>Let me ask that evidence whether he saw me cut any of that cloth?</p>
<p>Briggs to the Q. No, he did not, but he was aiding in it, in holding the cloth as it was wet.</p>
<p>Q. from Barnes. I desire my master would speak what he knows of my character.</p>
<p>Richardson. I can't say I discovered any villainy in Barnes, except this. He knows I have threatened him many a time, as I had often suspected him.</p>

Then I let go my hand, upon which the other man said, perhaps it is a felt hat, if it is let the poor man have it. The prisoner felt at the corner of it, and said, d - n my blood, it will do for me; I was looking at him all the while. When they left me I went down to the bottom of Old Gravel lane to see for somebody. I saw a watchman at a distance, I told him I had been robbed, he answered, you may rob and be d - d. Then I went to the watch house and inquired for the headborough; he asked if I knew

The prisoner went down Gravel lane, and two men with him, looking behind them now and then; we overtook them at the end of some broad stones.

Then he clapped his hand to the other pocket and drew out a second pistol, upon which the coachman drew back and called out a highwayman, so the prisoner made off. We went to secure our master and mistress into the town, and then returned with a good many people in quest of him. A man that was coming over Sion-field hearing the coachman call highwayman, and a gentleman's servant who saw the action assisted in taking him.
