Mrs. Edwards came to see me, I asked her to stay and lie with me that night. At going to bed she desired my maid, the prisoner, to call her up at 6 o'clock in the morning, but she did not call her, so we got up and look'd about the house for the prisoner, she was not to be found; I found the key in my book case, I likewise found she had taken away her cloaths.</p>
<p>Q. Had there been any quarrel previous to this?</p>
<p>M. Showring. No, my Lord, none at all. I sent for Mr. Chillingworth to see if he could find her, which he did and brought her to my house the same morning betwixt 9 and 10 o'clock. [ The pillowbear produced in court and deposed to.] She had it under her arm with her cloaths in it, when brought back.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see that pillowbear?</p>
<p>M. Showring. It was in my house the Sunday before. I believe she then put it on her own bed, in the pair of stairs room where she lay.</p>
<p>Mr. Chillingworth. I found the prisoner in White-chapel, and told her she had no good reason for going away, and persuaded her without discovering farther to return; so she took her bundle in this pillowbear and returned with me.</p>
<p>Q. Was she searched?</p>
<p>Chillingworth. She was at the prosecutrix's house, but found no money upon her. She did not go out of my sight from the first time I saw
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175209140003"/> her. She owned (before she got to Mr. Alderman Chittey) in the coach, that if her mistress would pull down the coach window, she would tell her the truth; I was on the outside the coach; when it was pulled up again I heard her say she let a young fellow,

She owned the some before the alderman; she was afterwards before my Lord Mayor, there she denied it, and said she had not seen that young man for above a week.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any threatnings made use of in order to her confession ?</p>
<p>Chillingworth. No, none at all, her mistress said she would forgive her if she would tell the truth.</p>
<p>The prosecutrix being asked, confirmed this of her confession, but said she never found any thing dishonest of her before.</p>
<p>Mrs. Edwards confirmed the whole of the prosecutrix's evidence.</p>

The second time he saw me, he ask'd me to drink some bumboe, and where my master was. I said at the other end of the town; he took me to an alehouse, and gave me three six penny worths of bumboe. The next time I saw him was the 17th of June, in Rotherhith; we had some cyder and brandy. Then I left him in King-street at the Duke of Cumberland's head ; I staid about a quarter of an hour, then went to him, and had some more cyder and brandy. Then we went with a man and played at skittles, and about eight o'clock we went away to his house, in Barnaby-street; but his wife was not at home. Then he took me to a house he had taken, up in a court near that place; there he took a pistol off the mantle-piece, and bid me down on my knees, and take my oath of what he was going to say, and then said, if ever I told Bridgewater my master, or any body else, what he was going to say, he'd be revenged. Said he, I owe my landlord rent, and you must go with me to rob coaches to pay it, and we shall be made men of in a night or two's time. We went out about eleven o'clock, to bid his wife a good night; she was at an alehouse, and he said he should not be at home that night. We went to Mr. Graunt's, on London Bridge, and had a quartern of rum. I had half of it; he asked Mr. Graunt to change half a guinea. Then we went to a house in a court close by Ludgate, on the right hand. We got there about half an hour after eleven. He put one pistol in his pocket, and an empty one in mine. I said I suppose you want me to be taken; he replied I have got a loaded one, if there is any danger call me. I saw him put it in his pocket; we stayed about a quarter of an hour, and then went up the Haymarket together. He heard a coach, and said now is your time. This was near twelve o'clock, in either Shug-lane, or Silver-street; he said, go up to it, and see what you can do. Said I, my heart fails me, I don't know how to go about it; if we must do it, you must go first. He said he would, and do you look out. He went up, and stopped it as it was at a corner. I stood about thirty yards off. It was a hackney coach; he bid the coachman stop, he did directly. He went and said, Deliver, and swore a great oath. I saw him put the pistol into the coach, and hold out his left hand to take what they'd give him. He came to me in about a minute; said he, I have made a prize; I believe I have got some gold, and shook a purse, and put it into his waistcoat pocket. After that there came three more coaches, but they were all empty; then the prosecutrix's coach came down Shug-lane, a hackney coach. Said he, I hope you will not deny it is your turn. I said, if I must, I'll go and try at once. I went up, and bid the coachman stop; he did not directly. Then I bid him again, and put the pistol into the coach, but gave a reel, and my heart failed me. The lady, as I thought, looked very cross and harsh. I ran up Piccadilly into a court, and call'd, Jack, come along. He was near the front of the horses, but I did not see him till he came after a good while, and shewed me a gold watch, a chain and seal, and said, See what I have done; we shall do for ourselves presently. He put it into his waistcoat pocket, and said, here is another coach; I said I'd not go. Then we went into Darkhouse-lane, to the Green Man and Bell. After we had drank three six pennyworths of bumboe, we went and lay down; but I was so uneasy, I got up again. He gave me a Spanish dollar, which I sold for 4 s. 7 d. and said, that he had it of the lady he robbed last; it was a white net purse. He gave me the watch to take care of. I saw another foreign piece, which I took to be a Duke of Cumberland's piece. He said he'd keep that. There did not appear to be much in the purse; it was a little gold watch, plain, and the box and case in one, with a long pinchbeck chain, a seal and key. We stayed there till about four or five o'clock in the morning, and then I went and sold the watch about noon, to Mr. Winstanley, a silversmith, in Lombard-street, for four guineas. I gave him two guineas. The dollar was sold to Mr. Winstanley. I went there alone.</p>

I asked him what sort of a man he had with him; he said it was a boy, half a fool; and that he gave him a pistol in his hand to go with him. I never saw that boy before.</p>

He crossed the way upon me, and said to me, Did you sit by me? I said, No, honest friend. He said he had lost his watch; and I answered, You scoundrel, I know nothing of it.

Then I came back again, and look'd over, and saw them

I went to a green stall over the way, and staid there about ten minutes; then they came both out and went down Fleetstreet. I crossed the way and laid hold of Hutton, and with giving a spring took hold also of Wright. I saw a gentleman's footman coming, and called him to my assistance; he came and took hold of Wright. I took a stick and a hand saw from Hutton, the other person took another saw from Wright; they had the two saws under their coats. We carried them to St. Dunstan's church, to Mr. Hunter, the constable, who I knew to be there being a carpenter at work there. Then we took them to Guildhall before the sitting alderman, the prosecutor came there and saw the saws and swore to them, and he, I, and Mr. Hunter put our private marks on them; here they are; then they were delivered to the constable again. There Hutton said to Wright, you may as well make yourself an evidence, for it is now in your power, and save yourself, for I shall be hanged.</p>

I took these saws into my possession after they were marked.</p>
<p>Here the prosecutor is called up again.</p>
<p>Q. Look at these two saws, do you know them?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. They are both mine, I put a mark upon them before the Alderman. They were in my shop that morning.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you open your window that morning?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. My wife then lay in, so I did not lie at home; my apprentice had opened the windows before they took the saws. I was not at home till about half an hour after 7 o'clock, after the saws were missed.</p>
<p>Remnant. The prosecutor told me he put a handle to one of the saws.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I did so, it is the smallest saw.</p>
<p>Hutton's Defence.</p>
<p>I had a small acquaintance with Mr. Salmon, and he knew something of me. I went and knocked at his door, a man looked out at his window, and said he was not at home; I wanted to borrow a saw of him, the door was open, I went in and took these saws with intent to borrow them, in tending to bring them back again.</p>

In the parcel there were blue and white handkerchiefs, and several goods besides, which came to 12 l. I staid there about half an hour, then brought the goods to London to where they were bought, in order to prepare a proper advertisement. I went then to Finchley, and had a search warrant, and searched two or three houses there, but found nothing at either. There was a box picked up on the Common by a man with a hay cart, which was carried to my inn, the cord was cut, but the box had not been opened, it was directed to esquire Bradeel at Preston. The robbery was on the Friday, I set out again for Lancashire on the Sunday morning, after leaving money in my landlord's hands for him to spare no cost in inquiring and advertising to find the goods. I overtook my man with the horses at Fenny Stratford, there was then one of the fifteen horses without a pack.</p>

When I came to Highgate, I had all my horses and packs, one horse carried a woman, and 15 with packs; I stopped and drank at the Wrestlers, and there told the horses over; it was then dark and a rainy night. I turned them before me, and did not stay above five minutes after them, and kept with them all the way till I came about a quarter of a mile beyond Brown's Wells, sometimes on the side and sometimes behind them on foot. Near the six mile stone, but it was so dark I could not see it, in telling them over I found the bald mare with her halter about her feet, and no pack on.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss her out of the number before you found her unloaded?</p>
<p>Fenton. I told them and I thought I had made a mistake in telling them, so I ran forward and found she was about the third or fourth without a pack. Then I got upon her and looked about backwards and forwards for almost an hour, but could not find any thing; then I rode on and over-took the rest of the horses on this side Barnet; I believe it was then betwixt 10 and 11.</p>
<p>Q. Did you meet with any body that you drank with on the road?</p>
<p>Fenton. No, I did not. I was quite sober. I went on to my inn the White Lion at Coney, and got there betwixt 12 and one. Then I dispatched a

He went into the house; the bag stood on its end, he hove it down and took two pieces of ginger out, saying it was of the right sort, and would fetch them about an ounce a piece.

I was in one boat the 8th of July, about eleven at noon, and the other witness in another, at Bell Wharf, for the purpose of plying. I observed a boat shove from between the ship and lighter, and saw a large bundle lying in the boat head; it went to Storehouse yard, and I followed it in mine. I saw the man of the boat take a bag on his shoulder, and carry it into Storehouse yard, to a house; the mark I do not know. but I saw No. 3, such a bag as this produced. I did not see him carry it into the house. I shoved my boat stern on shore. After he had taken the bag out of the boat he asked if it was my property; I said no. Penprice was then in a boat along with Robertson; not above a quarter of an hour after he came out of the boat, and asked me what it was. I told him I could not tell, but would go and see. Then I rowed my boat to Bell Wharf, and stoved her, and went to Storehouse yard, and saw the bag standing in a house. He followed us to the house I found to be Clark's. Penprice took it and turned it down, and said, This is the right sort; and asked who would be porter. I said I would not; he then asked Robertson, who said he would. He put it on Robertson's back, and he carried it to some distance, with the mark and number upwards, so he turned it downward.

I was there. Penprice followed it in about 5 minutes, with the 2 witnesses; those two stood at the door. Penprice turned the bag down, and breaking a hole put his finger in and took out some ginger, and said it was of the right sort; then broke a piece and flung it into the window. The numbers were towards the door when first set down.</p>
<p>Q. Was the bag of the size of this produced?</p>
<p>A. Austine. I think it was a little longer and whiter. He asked Herrington to carry it, and he refused it; then he asked Robertson, and he did; but in the middle of the yard, Penprice stopped him and turned the mark of the bag downwards.</p>

I asked him his business, he said he was come to buy my goods, and said my wife spoke to him about selling them; I told him I did not want to sell them, and desired him to go out of the room. Then he said there was a broker to come who would buy them. I desired him to go about his business, I went down to my landlady, then there came a broker and two porters through the passage and went up stairs, I followed them up; the broker said I am come to buy your goods. I said I am not going to sell them; the broker took his leave of me, saying, he hoped there was no harm done, and went away. The prisoner insisted upon staying there, and buying my goods, I told him if he'd not go I would make him, then he went away. Two days after we missed a pair of brass candlesticks, and by inquiring I found them at a broker's facing St. Andrew's Church, on Thursday last.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen them before?</p>
<p>Humphrys. I believe they were on the mantle-piece in my room the day that the prisoner was there?</p>

<p>I keep a house myself, I have many sufficient people to appear for me, they are not here, but if I had known I would have brought them, I can bring them tomorrow, or I can go and fetch one or two now.</p>
<p>Q. to Winter. How did he behave when he sold you the things?</p>
<p>A. Winter. Very sensibly. He came and said, here is a bargain for you; I looked at them and asked the price; he said upon the word of an honest man I gave twenty pence for them, and I will have two shillings of you if you have them. I have bought things of him two or three times before, he always behaved very sensibly.</p>

I went past him, and observed him so as to know him again. When I was gone about half way of the field, walking very slowly along, I heard a pattering of feet behind me: I turned myself round, and saw the prisoner and another man with him about 5 or 6 yards from me; they seemed to be in haste, I went on one side to let them come by; the prisoner pulled out a pistol with a brass barrel, clapped it to my breast, and desired me to deliver my money, or I was a dead man if I made any words. I told him I had but a very little, and if they were in earnest they should have a share of it. I put my hand in my pocket and took out about six peny worth of halfpence, which they refused. I put it in my pocket agai n; the prisoner lifted up the flap of my waistcoat and pulled out my watch and put it in his pocket.</p>
<p>Q. What watch was it?</p>
<p>Chalmers. It was a silver one. The other man stood over me with a large stick, and put his hand in my breeches pocket. I had thirteen guineas in one pocket, and about 14 s. in the other. I had two pockets on one side; he took his hand out of my pocket; I was afraid he had got hold of my gold. I took hold of his hand and desired him to let me see what he had got, saying, he must not have all, he must give me a part; he opened his hand, and I saw it was silver, which made me quite easy. Then the prisoner was for going, but the other seeing the gold of some bulk in my other
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175209140017"/> pocket, he put his finger to it and swore it was gold, and he would have it; the prisoner was then gone I believe five or six yards from me. This man put his hand to my pocket, I catched his other arm, and took him by the collar with my right hand, and told him he should have no more. He then desired me to let him go and he would give me no farther disturbance. I said, if they did not deliver back my watch I would follow them. They immediately ran off, I followed them. The prisoner turned round and said if I followed him he would do for me. I still followed them, and saw a man on horseback, upon which I waved my hat to him and he came up, then we chased them through the fields towards Islington. The man on horseback passed by me and drove one of them into a boghouse at Islington, the other we lost in the fields, I should know him again could I see him.

I missed a silver saucepan, which had not been used during the time she had been in my service; it was not under lock and key, the key was lost. I inquired of her, after I had looked about, where it was, she said, I'll go and look for it; she went to the place where it should have been, and returned again and said it was not there. What, said I, have you moved it, and where? She said indeed, madam, I have took it to keep Benjamin out of prison, and if I would let her go out, she would go and find it. She returned and said it should be got some time the next day. I missed a silver watch and a gold chain fixed to it, which had been a constant plaything for the little girl; I asked what was become of them, she said she had taken and given them to Milley. We missed other things by looking about, a silver milk pail for a tea table, a silver egg, a play-thing of the child. She pretended she knew nothing of them. Then she went and fetched Millicent. After that we missed 4 sheets, and 6 napkins.</p>

They never were out of my house to my knowledge till she took them away. I knew the sheets were in a store chest about two months ago. I have seen the silver saucepan in the house since she lived with me. I kept her in the house endeavouring to find out the things. I got a constable and took her before the justice ; there she owned all, that she had taken the things she was charged with. Her sister Millicent was taken before the justice at the same time, and was charged with having received them from her sister, and pawning them. She cried and told us the linen was at Mr. Figg's, the saucepan at one Mrs. Hunt's in Orchard street ; I can't say she said she received them, but she did not deny it. The mother came to my house the morning after the discovery, and said she was sorry, and asked ten thousand pardons. She denied seeing any thing.</p>

She was sent for the next morning, I charged her with receiving them of her sister and pawning them; she acknowledged the charge, and promised to bring them again. She said some was at Mrs. Hunt's in Orchard street; at that time we could get no more out of her. I was with her before Justice Lediard, Ann confessed there she was guilty of taking the things mentioned in the search warrant which was read to her. She said she had delivered them to Millicent. Millicent owned she had received those things from her sister. The brother and mother were then taken up; she confessed where the plate and chain were; that she had told their distresses to her sister, who had lent her the things and she had pawned them. She likewise confessed that the watch and chain were at Mrs. Sugg's in the Bowling Alley. I think the two dimitty petticoats and silver pail were in Pye street. The mother denied she knew any thing of the matter; then the son denied it, but he afterwards said he knew of it, and that when he was ill, Ann cried to him to have the things taken out, upon which he raised some money and got them out. She looks at the silver watch, this I saw in March last. The silver milk pail, silver snuff-box, and tweezer I saw in Jan or Feb. They are my property.</p>

<p>Q. Done what?</p>
<p>Chip. Taken the things and delivered them to her sister Milley. Then I took the other three. Millicent said before the justice that her sister Ann delivered them to her, and she had pawned them. She went with me to Orchard-street to Mrs. Hunt's, there I found a silver saucepan, a tweezer, and two white petticoats. At Mr. Pearson's in Long Ditch I found the silver milk pail, and at Mr. Sugg's a Cornchandler, in Bowling alley, I found a tortoise-shell watch, and a gold chain. In Pye street, one petticoat and four aprons; at Mr. Figg's in Peter-street two pair of sheets, six napkins, four pillowbears, a silver snuff-box, and a silver egg. These goods produced are the same I found.</p>
