I asked her where she was going; she said she wanted to go to the turnpike to meet a waggon to carry her goods down to Edgar ; she had a box on her head, and an apron full besides. I suspected she had ran away from her service by seeing her tremble, so I said you shall go back along with me; she said, she lived with Mr. Mitchel in North Audley-street, I took her there, and in going along she made an attempt to run away, but I laid down the box, which I had taken from her, at a door, and ran and secured her. After I had secured her in the prisoner's kitchen, I went and fetch'd the box, which was lock'd, and they open'd it in my presence, in which and in her apron they found the goods mentioned by the prosecutor, which he said were his.</p>

<p>Q. When had you seen that tankard lost ?</p>
<p>Jeffereys. I am positive it was in the room at one o'clock that afternoon.</p>
<p>Q. What time did she come to your house?</p>
<p>Jeffereys. She came between twelve and one, and staid till three. I suspected the prisoner, but did not know where to find her; on Sunday was se'nnight the other young woman came that used to meet her, I kept her till she told me where to find the prisoner, which she said was at her mother's in Magpye-alley, Fetter-lane. I went and enquired for her, they denied her, but as the young woman had told me she was then at home, I insisted on seeing her, and went up stairs and found her concealed amongst some curtains to a turn-up bed. I asked her why she hid herself, she said she heard my voice and was afraid of me. She desired to talk with me by myself, so I went with her into her own room, where she said she hoped I would be merciful unto her; I said I would as much as I could. Then she said the tankard was at a pawnbroker's in Cursiter-street. I took her before alderman Bethell at Guild-hall, who granted a search-warrant to search the pawnbroker's house. We went there, and she asked for the tankard she had pawned in the name of

<p>Marsh. Indeed I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Don't you usually read the advertisements in the papers.</p>
<p>Marsh. I generally do, but I don't remember seeing this advertisement.</p>
<p>Q. What did you lend her upon it?</p>
<p>Marsh. I lent her four guineas and a half upon it.</p>
<p>Q. Don't you remember the letters on the handle ?</p>

<p>Mr. Martingale. I knew the prisoner's father and her from a child; she was well brought up, but debauched by her father's apprentice, who is a very bad man, and I think necessity was the cause of her committing this action.</p>

<p>John McPhearson. I live in Philadelphia in Pensylvania, and at present lodge near the Hermitage ; on the 22d of this Instant, about twelve of the clock, I was upon 'Change, and hearing a noise went to see what was the matter, I heard the people call out a pickpocket, and saw some people engaged with the prisoner at the bar. I believe he had many of his friends there, it was as much as the people could do to hold him. I got hold on him and received several blows; however we at last tied his hands, and then some gentlemen proposed searching him. I was one that searched his pockets, and saw, among many others, a handkerchief come out of his pocket, which I thought was my own, I felt and found mine gone, then I look'd at that handkerchief and found it was mine; it is a silk India handkerchief of the best sort.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen it before?</p>
<p>McPhearson. I had seen it the day before.</p>
<p>Q. Where had you been that day you lost it?</p>
<p>McPhearson. I had been chiefly that day on 'Change; then I tied my handkerchief about his neck, and took him before a magistrate.</p>

I heard the people say, take the fellow and duck him, so I laid hold on him, and received a blow from some by-stander that drew blood on both my hands; he was searched and ten or twelve handkerchiefs I believe were taken out of his pocket. The gentlemen got hold on them, one said this is mine, another this is mine, and took them and went their way. When they talk'd of ducking the prisoner, he desired they would save his life, for this was the first fact he had committed. This he spoke on the open 'Change.</p>
<p>The prisoner had nothing to say, nor call'd any witness.</p>

They had carried him to St. George's hospital at Hide park Corner, I went there, and found it to be my son; he was laid in bed in all his bloody things. I spoke to him, but he gave me no answer.

I enquir'd how he came by his hurt, but could not hear any thing of it. I went on the Wednesday to see him, and was told he had spoke, and had told several people that the park-keeper had beat him. I went to Mr. Fielding for a warrant to take up the prisoner on suspicion, but the justice would not grant a warrant, except I would bring the man that heard the child say so; then I went back to the infirmary, and the doctor that examin'd the child said, possibly the child may come to his senses, and might tell who hurt him, and that it would be better not to take him up till we saw whether he would live or die.</p>

<p>Q. Why did you judge him partly sensible?</p>
<p>Chavace. By his knowing me and calling me mother. I asked him what ail'd him, but he made no answer. I asked him who beat him, he answered, Pray mother give me a little tea and I'll tell you. I gave him a little tea, and asked him again, he said, the park-keeper struck him.</p>

After that I turn'd him on his back again, and wip'd the blood and froth out of his mouth. I ask'd him who had beat him, but he could not speak. I look'd round the park and could not see any body.

I said, I can't help that; he asked me were Richard was, meaning the prisoner.</p>

The man prisoner was there, and push'd the woman into the Black Raven alehouse, she turn'd about and with the basket struck the prosecutor, or whether she pushed him with the door, as he wanted to follow them in, so that he fell down at the door.</p>

I said, if any body would assist we'd go in, and see if we could take them; so we went in and the prosecutor pointed to the woman, and said she was one of them; she and the man were both taken in the house, but the people in the house rescued them from us, and they were conveyed to a sort of a back door, where was a stair case, I went backwards and saw them both, and another woman with them, that door goes into an inn-yard. The people turn'd the prosecutor and two or three more out of the house, and was going to turn me out, but I said I would have a pint of beer, and insisted upon being there, and it was then that I went backwards and saw the prisoners. I ran to the street door, and told the people that the prisoners were not gone out; upon which they rush'd in again, and pull'd them out of this place, which was a sort of an entry into the tap room, but they were rescu'd from us a second time, and pushed out at the street door; they made an attempt to run down Black-Boy-Alley, but the woman was taken before she got into it, but by whom I know not. Then she call'd out, Charley ! Charley! then I went to get a constable, and she was taken to the Butcher's-Arms in Smithfield, but the man got off. The woman behaved at the Butcher's-Arms with very indecent language not to be mention'd, and in about an hour's time the man came in, I believe of his own accord. I sa w him, and said to Mr. Coombe, get up, look about. and see if there is not somebody here that you know, immediately he got up, and pointed to Mr. Attonbury's apprentice, who was sent for to him about business, said he, I know that young man.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175310240021"/>Green, I have been stopt by a man and two women; the man struck me on the face, and the woman run a basket against my face, they held me fast and robbed me; this was in Black-boy-alley, and that he got hold of one of the women and dragged her into Chick-lane, and that a man and one of the women were now in the house; I, and others went in to secure them; we secured them; but they were twice rescued from us in the house. The rest as the last evidence, with this addition ; that when they were taken before the alderman, the woman said, the prosecutor took hold on her sister's arm and dragged her about, and said, come along you bitch and drink a pot of beer.</p>

I am a Wheelwright. on Saturday was sen'night at night, my partner and I had left off work, and were going to the Crown in Chick-Lane to make our bill in order for the receiving our money. We heard the cry of murder! murder ! I am robbed; I went up to the prosecutor, and said, are your actually robbed ? he said yes, of 11 s. and upwards, then I said, I'll assist you; then he, and I, and another man, went in at the Black Raven; the people of the house shoved us back again after we had got the people, and got them backwards by a staircase and a backdoor; I knowing the backdoor, when I was out of the house, went towards it to see if they were gone out or not; when I came there, the two women and man were shoved out at the foredoor ; I ran and laid hold on the woman, I took her by one hand, and Mr. Coombe by the other, and we carried her to the constable, at the Butchers Arms, in Smithfield : after we had got her there, she swore I had robb'd her, so I was detained; whilst we were there the man came in. The rest as Murray had deposed, with this addition, that after the woman was in the watch-house she denied what she had said about his robbing her, so he was let go.</p>
<p>Cross Examined.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you hear the woman say, she, or her sister, had been used ill by the prosecutor?</p>
<p>Fennel. No, I did not hear her say any such word, that they had been either of them abused by any body.</p>
<p>Mr. Cheene. I am constable; I and my brother constable had them in charge, I never heard the woman make any complaint of any indecency from Coombe.</p>
<p>The other constable deposed the same.</p>
<p>Mahagen's Defence.</p>
<p>We came to London on the 4th of October, from Ireland : I got a room to lodge in at Mr. Reynold's, in Black-boy alley; I was recommended there by the people at the Raven: The prosecutor met me in the alley and knocked my wife down; I went up stairs; they called me down; my wife said, the man was gone ; I saw him running, I ran after him, and said, how came you to knock my wife down? he said, I will go before a justice, or any place; the woman recovered herself, came up and said to me, don't be concerned with him; some people said, why don't you take him into custody; I said, I am a stranger, nobody will assist me, so we let him go; then he went to the others, and they contrived this thing against us.</p>
<p>The Woman's Defence.</p>
<p>As I was coming with my sister I had a basket in my hand, the prosecutor knocked my sister down, and put his hands up my coats and down my bosom, and bid the whores come away with him, and said, if we would not, he would knock our brains out.</p>
<p>For the Prisoners.</p>
<p>Gibbon Smith. I never saw the prisoners before this thing happened, which was on a Saturday night. I think this day fortnight, near seven o'clock ; I was coming from Cow Cross up Black-boy-alley with my wife, we heard a great noise and a woman calling Charley, Charley; when we got up to it, they were all out of the alley in Chick-lane; there was quarrelling and fighting, a woman beat a man with a basket, and I believe the men had blows; I can't recollect that the prisoners are either of the persons; there was another woman came to a door, and said, for God sake Charley come out, for there is somebody quarrelling with your wife; there was somebody came down stairs, but they were gone out of the alley before we came there.</p>

<p>Q. HOW came you by that basket ?</p>
<p>Smith. I pick'd it up after they let it fall, and deliver'd it to the Raven people.</p>
<p>Mrs. Barton. I have known the prisoner about a week, they lodg'd in Cock-court, Black-Boy-Alley, I know the other woman, they all three lay together when they came to town.</p>
<p>Q Is the other woman related to them?</p>
<p>Barton. I don't know whether she is or not; on this day fortnight I was getting some water, I had just put my pail under the cock, I heard a great out-cry, which was two women and a man fighting.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the night was this?</p>
<p>Barton. It was between seven and eight o'clock. The women call'd out, Charley! Charley! I look'd at them, and thought they were the people that lodg'd next door to me. I call'd the man, and I believe he made no more steps down stairs than one, for he had like to have tumbled over me; he asked me what was the matter, I said, if that is your wife here is a man beating her, she will kill her he stings her about so, I suppose he'll smother her; I believe he was stopped in Chick-lane, but I did not go to see.</p>

<p>Prosecutor. That evidence keeps a lodging house for such sort of people in Black-Boy-Alley.</p>
<p>Reynolds. I did not see the beginning of the quarrel, if the robbery, as is pretended, was after the cry, Charley! Charley! I know it could not be ; for I saw the Alley clear. I was in my own house, and heard the prisoner's wife call Charley. I think three times, the prisoner was then in his own room, he came down to the assistance of his wife ; I saw the prosecutor run away, and the prisoner after him, calling out, Stop him, stop him. I heard the woman say, Charley, Charley, I have been ill used; I think she said she had been knock'd down.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him come down stairs ?</p>
<p>Reynolds. No, but I heard him: I went to Chick-Lane with a candle in my hand, then they were fighting ; I said to Mr. Mahagen. why can't you charge him? charge him, he said, what is that ? I said, with a constable: the prosecutor never mentioned any thing of a robbery as.</p>
<p>Q. Was you near him?</p>
<p>Reynolds. I was as to this man, pointing a man within a yard of him, I returned home: them fighting ; and after that the prisoner came to me, and said, they have taken my away, what can I do?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175310240023"/>Prisoner. She is my wife's sister.</p>
<p>Reynolds. As for Mr. Kelly, and the other man, they were never in the alley.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that?</p>
<p>Reynolds. I was there all the while; he charged the man with the robbery, I went to the Butchers-Arms with the man, where there was nothing talked off but hanging of him; they took him into custody: I staid there some time, and then went home.</p>
<p>Q. Did they charge one another?</p>
<p>Reynolds. I don't know for that; the prisoner and I had been at the Raven together that day, we went home, and he went up stairs; he had not been out of my house to my knowledge ?</p>
<p>Q. Had you been out again in the time ?</p>
<p>Reynolds. I had been up and down the alley several times.</p>

<p>Wilson. No, I did not, I was in the bar.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you hear these people that came in after them, charge the prisoners with a robbery?</p>
<p>Wilson. No, I did not; there had been a quarrel, but I cannot tell about what.</p>
<p>Q. Did you order your door to be shut against some of the witnesses ?</p>
<p>Wilson. I do not know that my door was shut against any body that night.</p>
<p>Q. Were not the prisoners searched in your house ?</p>
<p>Wilson. No, there was nobody searched that I know of.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the prisoners before that night ?</p>

One day since this happened I stood at the end of Mutton-lane, and heard the prosecutor and another man talking together about this robbery, the other man asked him if he was sure this was the woman that robb'd him; he said, I don't know, I cannot be positive whether the woman in custody, or the b - h that is run away, robb'd me, but I was robb'd of 11 s.</p>

No. I went with him to Mr. Watson, there he pawn'd it; on the Friday night I saw the prisoner, I believe it was in Parker's-lane at a private house, I am not acquainted in that part of the town. I was going along, and Lattey passed by me himself ; he said, he was going to a publick-house, (pointing to one) and wanted me to drink. I went on to do my business, and then went there to him, where we had two tankards of beer; there was another person with him, which he said was a surgeon, whose name is Crosby ; he said, Hambleton is very bad and not likely to live, and that is his surgeon: I went along with them to see him, where he was lying in Parker's-lane; I spoke to him, but he made me little or no answer being very weak.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any discourse with him about that watch, or the robbery?</p>
<p>Kennedy No, never. The surgeon took the prisoner to his own house, in an Alley near Drury-lane: the next day I went down to Mr. Watson's, he having sent to me, to let me know the watch was not honestly come by, and was advertised ; while I was gone with him, in endeavouring to take up Lattey, I was informed the prisoner was gone from the surgeon's to my house, where he was taken.</p>

<p>John Leadbeater. On the 18th of August I was going in a post-chaise to my own house at Barnes, in Surry, I intended to go as far towards home, as the chaise would carry me on this side the water, and about eight o'clock in the evening, in the lane leading to the water side from the Bohemia Head, I saw a person come up to the chaise, there was one Mr. Dell in the chaise with me, and said to the post-boy turn your head the other way, or I will blow your brains out, the chaise then stopt; he then put a pistol into the chaise, and said, give me all you have, or I will blow your brains out, or words to that effect; I gave him five guineas, half a guinea, and six or seven shillings in silver, which I put into his hand; he then demanded Mr. Dell's money, and while he was taking that I was striving to save some little trifle, which the prisoner observing, said, d - n you, don't
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175310240025"/> trifle with me, for I will search you afterwards, and if you have any thing I'll blow your brains out. I then told him, I thought he had a pretty good booty, and might give us something back again; the prisoner then said, d - n you, I have dropped something, you may take that if you will, the post-boy then got down and found a shilling.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner is the man?</p>

<interp inst="t17531024-42-person309" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . As it is in a case of life and death, I will not take upon me to swear that he is the man.</p>
<p>Q. Was it so light that you could distinguish his Face ?</p>
<p>Leadbeater. I could.</p>
<persName id="t17531024-42-person310"> James Dell

<interp inst="t17531024-42-person310" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I was in company and in the same chaise with Mr. Leadbeater, and was going to Kew, we were stopt in the lane that goes from the King of Bohemia's head to Cheswick, by a single highwayman, and I really believe the prisoner to be the man.</p>
<persName id="t17531024-42-person311"> Joseph Nicoll

<interp inst="t17531024-42-person311" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am the post-boy that drove the chaise when the gentlemen were robb'd, and am sure the prisoner is the man that did it; I had seen him many nights before, and once in a morning he rode round my chaise several times, but never stopt it before. I took particular notice of him the first night.</p>
<p>Q. How light was it at the time the chaise was stopt ?</p>
<p>Nicoll. A person might see to read very well at that time.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner is the man?</p>
<p>Nicoll. I am sure he is the man.</p>
<p>Cross Examin'd.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you see the prisoner at any other time?</p>
<p>Nicoll. The first time I saw him was at Hide-Park Corner, about a week before this robbery was committed, he rode overagainst the chaise for twenty yards together, and seemed to take great notice, and when we came just by the half way house to Kensington, he turn'd round and look'd into it: When I came to Kensington he asked me whose chaise it was, I bid him go look.</p>
<p>Q. Was any body in the chaise at this time?</p>
<p>Nicoll. There was.</p>
<p>Q. Did he attempt to rob them?</p>
<p>Nicoll. No, he did not.</p>
<p>Q. Was you ever in company with him?</p>
<p>Nicoll. No, no further than seeing him at four different times before ride by my chaise.</p>
<p>The prisoner said nothing in his defence, but call'd the following witnesses.</p>
<p>Mr. Moore. I live in the Strand, and have kept the house these nine years, I have known the prisoner near eight months, he work'd for one Mr. Brown, a printer, near St. Martin's-lane in the Strand; I was present when their boy came in on the 18th of August, about six in the evening, from the prisoner with his compliments and thanks to me for some tea and bread and butter my wife had sent him that afternoon ; he came home himself about nine o'clock, he lodged and boarded with me, and never was out of my sight, except when he was at work, and at sleeping time. I can give him the character of a very sober man, one that was never given to any extravagence, and one that always kept good hours.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever see him booted ?</p>
<p>Moore. The most times I ever saw him booted was twice, and both times on a Sunday.</p>
<p>Q. to the post-boy. Did you ever see the prisoner about your chaise on a Sunday?</p>
<p>Nicoll. No.</p>
<p>Q. to Moore. Did the prisoner keep a horse ?</p>
<p>Moore. No, he never did.</p>
<p>Mrs. Moore. I have known the prisoner Thompson ever since the beginning of last April, he has lodged in our house ever since ; upon the 18th of August we had Mr. and Mrs. Kelly, and Mrs. Mercer drinking tea, the prisoner did not come home, so I sent him some; while we were drinking tea, Mr. Kelly said, when he had done, he would go to Westminster to look at a lodging, and that he would call at Mr. Brown's and take Mr. Thompson along with him. Mr. Kelly went, I desir'd him to make haste home to supper, and Mr. Thompson and Mr. Kelly came home together about nine o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner booted?</p>
<p>Moore. No, he was not.</p>
<p>Q. What dress was he in?</p>
<p>Moore. He had on a brown coat, a light waistcoat, black breeches and stockings.</p>
<p>Q How came you to remember the day?</p>
<p>Moore. We was to have gone up the river that day, but it happening to be a wet day we could not go, so we appointed the next day, which was Sunday, and we were obliged to get a warrant to authorize the waterman to carry us, and here is the warrant (producing one) dated the 19th.</p>
<p>Q. During the time the prisoner lodged at your house, how often did you see him booted?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175310240026"/>Moore. Twice: he always behaved himself well, and during the time he boarded with us, he never was absent at supper time, unless we were all out together.</p>

<p>Miss Cane. On the 18th of August, about seven in the evening, the prisoner and Mr. Kelly came to our house to enquire where he must go to look at the lodging; the prisoner was drest in a brown coat, black waistcoat and breeches, and black stockings.</p>
