I found her at Hungerford, at a house where her aunt lives, with quite new cloaths on. I charged her with taking 27 s from me, and her aunt asking if it was true, she said yes, and that her mistress sent her up with the key of the parlour door, which opened mine, and she took the other things; that she took a pair of black silk stockings, and her mistress sent her to sell them in Monmouth-Street; that a day or two after there were three pair of stockings taken out of the same box (I can not recollect who she said took them) and her mistress sent her with them to pawn, and two other pair afterwards; and after that she was sent up to take some other things, when she took some sattin and pawn'd it, and her mistress had the money, meaning the other prisoner. She said she took a handkerchief out of my room, that her mistress took two more out of my bandbox, and sent her with them to pawn, but I do not know where. She said she had laid out the 27 s. in the cloaths she had on her back, all but 20 d.

<p>Jefferys's defence.</p>
<p>My mistress and I having some words one night I went out, and going along the Strand I met a gentleman, who took me to a house at the corner of Halfmoon-Street, treated me with half a pint of wine, and gave me half a guinea to cloath myself. Mrs. Noble told me she would give me half a guinea to say my mistress sent me up to take the things away.</p>
<p>Finley's defence.</p>
<p>Mrs. Noble took a room of me, and afterwards used us all very ill. She spit in my face, and said we were all whores, rogues and thieves. We bid her quit the room. She used to snap her fingers at us, and bid us kiss her backside. I took a warrant out against her from justice St. Lawrence, and she
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175609150004"/> was committed to New-prison, but upon her promising to pay the rent due to me I beg'd her out of gaol: After which she began again. When she took up this girl, she got me to go with her to Hungerford, and went round by justice Fielding's, where she had me taken up. The girl was there, who said Mrs. Noble had offer'd her half a guinea and double apparel, if she would say I order'd her to rob her.</p>

<p>Q. Have you had it again?</p>
<p>Macdaniel. No, I have not seen it since.</p>
<p>Q. Have you heard either of the prisoners confess any thing about it?</p>
<p>Macdaniel. I have heard them both own, that Ridout took it out of my bar, and gave it to Prosser, who carried it away; and Prosser confessed that he and an old cobler sold it for a guinea to one Woodhouse, who is since bail'd out, and that the cobler and Prosser had each half a guinea.</p>
<p>Q. Where did they confess this?</p>
<p>Macdaniel. Before justice St. Lawrence.</p>
<p>Q. What, had Ridout no part of the money?</p>
<p>Macdaniel. No, he was stop'd immediately, upon the tankard being missing, and carried to prison.</p>

As soon as they were gone I missed the tankard, and pursuing them Ridout was taken in Southampton-Street. I could not overtake the other, but he was taken in about a week after. I heard Ridout confess he took the tankard from the bar, and gave it to Prosser, who ran away with it; and Prosser said he carried it to a cobler, who sold it to one Woodhouse for a guinea, and that he had one half guinea, and the cobler the other.</p>

On Tuesday night the 15th of August I was standing at my barrack door in the Savoy; (Prosser's barrack was over mine.) I heard something fall. I step'd out and saw something shine. I took it up and held it to a lamp, and saw it was a cover to a silver tankard. Prosser said, that is mine, give it me; which I did. I said to him next morning, do you intend to make a good hand of it? take care of yourself. When we were in St. James's Park, I told one or two of my comrades of it, and said, I fear'd he did not come honestly by it. Then I and two others went to his barrack, and opened the place where he lay; but found nothing. It got to the sergeant major's car, who sent for me. Then I was ordered to go to the colonel next morning; and there I related the whole affair. He ordered the corporal and I to go and confine the prisoner in the Savoy; which we did. He was taken before justice St. Lawrence, where he said the cover was tin. Ridout being there, was asked whether Prosser was the person concerned with him? He said, he was. Then Prosser own'd he carried the tankard to a cobler; that the cobler carried it to the house of one Woodhouse in Oxford-Road, and brought out a guinea for it, gave him a half guinea; and kept the other himself.</p>
<p>The prisoners had nothing to say in their defence.</p>

While we were talking the prisoner had like to have got away; but I got hold of him. Then I took him to St. James's Round-house. Going along he confessed he broke open my box with the poker, and took the trunk out and wrapped it up in my great coat, and carried it away; and that he had sold my great coat for five shillings and six-pence, and spent the money. I ask'd him for the money he had left. He put his hand in his pocket in a passion, and pulled out three-pence halfpenny, my silver buttons, and a little bit of silver, which I found in the street two or three years ago (not laid in the indictment.) Presently he took out the two pair of buckles, and gave them to

Wright ask'd me if I had got any coarse handkerchiefs to sell, while Kelsey turned out at the door with a bundle the very instant. I pushed by him, and ran to the door; and said, that man had taken goods out of my shop.</p>
<p>The other followed me to the door, and said, what man? I said, that man; and pointed to him. They left me at my door and went to him; and all 3 ran together. I turned into the shop to see what I had missed; and I missed some callico wrapper. My husband was in the back room. He followed them.

They ran, and I ran. I called stop thief. They made a stop in the field, and he in the light colour'd cloaths turn'd on the right. I pursued the prisoners, and took hold of Kelsey's collar (He had this hanger in his hand; producing one.) The other took hold of my hand. Kelsey drew the hanger out. I catch'd hold on some part of the hilt, secured it and them and carried them to the Red-Lion. There went the landlord and others to see for the other person as I directed them; and they returned, and brought this wrapper (here produced ) which they said they found in a ditch.</p>

<p>Kelsey's defence.</p>
<p>I never was in the shop at all. I gave a young fellow a shilling to serve his majesty king George. He wanted a handkerchief. They went in to buy him one, and came out directly. The woman came making a crying, and said they had taken some of her things. She said, she would hang us right or wrong.</p>

<p>I went in with the recruit to buy him a handkerchief; and there was nobody in the shop. I knock'd with my foot. Then the woman came and ran against me; and then out of doors. She saw the prisoner go by the shop window, and said, that man has got some of my goods. I said, not that man I am sure; because he has not been in. I said, I'd go and see if he had any thing. I went, and he had nothing. The occasion of our running in the field was, we were running a race for a tankard of beer; and the recruit ran away from us.</p>

Then he wanted to join company with them. One of them did, and they spent three pence each. The others went and left him and I alone. I did not like him, he swore very much. I told my servant so. He had a silver mug, and I bid him keep an eye upon it. While I was standing opposite to the door, I saw him come towards the door twice. When I went into the room he was laying as though asleep on the table. I told him it was customary for people that had not a horse to pay for their liquor before they went to bed; which he did.

<p>Q. From where did you miss it?</p>
<p>Green. I had put it on the bricks in the cellar, just under the kitchen floor, in a bag.</p>
<p>Q. How much was there of it?</p>
<p>Green. There were eleven thirty-six shilling pieces, two moidores, sixteen guineas, and one half guinea.</p>
<p>Q. Do you usually put your money in that place?</p>
<p>Green. I did put it there then. I had made it up for my landlord.</p>
<p>Q. How far was it from the small beer tub?</p>
<p>Green. Not a great way. About three yards.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lay it there in order to hide it?</p>
<p>Green. I did. My wife did not know where it was.</p>
<p>Q. Whether any body that went to draw small beer could perceive it or not ?</p>
<p>Green. They might go twenty times and never see it, it lay so close. There was but just room to put it in, and it was in a dark brown bag.</p>
<p>Q. How high is the cellar?</p>
<p>Green. The cellar is just high enough for a but to stand in.</p>
<p>Court. Then your money lay just about as high as a man's eye when he stands up?</p>
<p>Green. Yes, it did.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find any of your money afterwards?</p>
<p>Green. The prisoner produced it. It is now in the constable's hands. I accused him with taking it, and he surrender'd eleven thirty-six shilling pieces,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175609150010"/> sixteen guineas, and 2 twenty-seven shilling pieces, which was all but one half guinea, which he had spent a trifle of.</p>
<p>Q. What did he say for himself?</p>
<p>Green. Master, said he, it is not your money; I broke no lock nor drawer, I found it. I told him the number and value of the pieces before he produced it.</p>
<p>Q. How long had he had it in his possession?</p>
<p>Green. About twenty-four hours.</p>
<p>Court. Then he had time enough to have gone off with it ?</p>
<p>Green. Yes, he had.</p>
<p>Q. Is he a yearly servant?</p>
<p>Green. He is. He has been with me a year next Christmas.</p>
<p>Q. How has he behaved while in your service?</p>
<p>Green. He has behaved well. I never found any thing amiss of him before this, and if he is cleared I'll let him to work again.</p>
<p>Q. If this money had been laid in a proper drawer, or place where money is used to be put, whether you think he'd have taken it ?</p>
<p>Green. I think he would not.</p>

On the 20th of July last, between one and two o'clock, the goods mention'd in the indictment were all in my lodging-room, up one pair of stairs, in the house of Mary Racket, then a widow; the box the shirts were'in, and the cloaths on it, were taken away, but I can't say the exact time.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever get them again?</p>
<p>Jones. I have all my cloaths again, except two shirts. The prisoner was taken with some of the things on his back, and carried before justice St. Lawrence, where he said he bought them of a woman, and denied having any of the money. We found the box by his directions; that and what was in it he said he had of a man to carry.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Jones. I had seen him once or twice come into Mary Racket's house, and call for a penny worth of beer; I know not how he came by the things.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to suspect the prisoner?</p>
<p>Jones. I had inform'd my uncle, at the Plough in St. Martin's Lane, of my loss, who told me he let a man with such cloaths on a horse, to go to a place near Edgware, so I and another went after him. (The cloaths found produced in court, and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Q. What do you value them at ?</p>
<p>Jones. At ten shillings.</p>

My brother-in-law living with the prosecutor, he was committed on suspicion of stealing these things. There came in a porter at the Gentleman and Porter in Leicester Fields, where the box was taken from, who said he had carried a box the last night from Rupert-street to somewhere in the Strand. Justice St. Lawrence granted me a warrant, so I went with the prosecutor, and we took the prisoner after looking for him at divers places to no purpose; but having had further intelligence of him, we went to Kingsbury Green, and found he had been at a farmer's house there, but was gone towards London. I followed him, and found him at an alehouse door. By his dress and the horse he rode, I took him to be the person. I ask'd him his name, he said Smith. I asked him if he had not once lived at the Cock in the Haymarket, and he said no. I took him and had him before justice St. Lawrence, with the prosecutor's coat. waistcoat and shirt on, which he own'd. On searching him, he had three shillings and some halfpence in his pocket. He was committed to Newgate on his second examination, and by his direction the box was found at the Green Man and Still in Tyburn-road. I saw it opened, there were four shirts and a coat in it, and the prosecutor swore to the things there.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. How many shirts were found in the box?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. There were four, my property.</p>
<p>Q. How big was the box?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. It was three quarters of a yard in length.</p>
<p>Q. Was the door where it was kept lock'd or unlock'd?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. We had a bean feast that day, and many people going up and down stairs the door was not lock'd.</p>

<p>Q. How far is that from the Green Man and Still?</p>
<p>Thornton. It is the same house, only it has a double sign. I saw the box opened, and some shirts taken out of it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I was at work for one farmer Finch at Kingsbury-Green. On a wet day I came to London, and met with one Stapleton, who had got that box, and talk'd of going on board the Antigallican privateer; he said he would sell me the cloaths very cheap, so I agreed with him for 30 s. for the coat, waistcoat, and shirts. I paid part of the money in the Hay-market, and told him I would pay the rest in Lambeth Marsh, at the King's-Arm, where I attend.</p>
<p>Brown. When I was bringing the prisoner to town, he sham'd drunk, and fell from his horse twice; he then wanted to call at an alehouse to do a chare for himself, where he flung this Common-Prayer book down the vault, and the landlord and we took it out (producing one.)</p>

<p>Q. Explain what you mean by being concern'd with you.</p>
<p>H. Smart. I felt him in my body, in the very act, before I had power to speak; as soon as I spoke he went out of the room. I went and sat down, and felt my body very sore.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sensible of any thing that came from him?</p>

On the 2d of June about ten at night my wife was in the passage, and the maid was coming out of the parlour. She said to my wife, did you see two gentlemen that I draw'd a tankard of beer for? My wife said, she had not seen any body; and she'd be hang'd if the tankard was not stoln. I ask'd the maid how she came to draw in a tankard to two strangers ? She said, she had seen one (that is, the prisoner at the bar) three or four times before; and she believed he lived in the neighbourhood. Missing my tankard, I advertised it in the Publick-Advertiser, two guineas reward; but have not seen it since. About seven weeks ago there came two men to my house, and asked me if I had lost a tankard? I said, I had; and had not found it since. They wanted me to describe the men I suspected. I call'd the maid, and she described one of the men. She said, the other held down his face. They said, there was such a man in Bridewell, committed by my Lord-mayor for picking a pocket. I and the maid went along with them, but kept these two men out, and desired the girl going along to be exceeding careful who she pitch'd upon. Going in she said, the prisoner at the bar was the man that call'd for the tankard of beer, and also for a pint of twopenny to put into it; and when she came up, they and the tankard were gone ( he was in his waistcoat.) I desired he'd put his coat on. She said; there was no occasion, for she was positive. I took him before Mr. Fielding, and there she swore to him. All he said was, he never was at my house in his life time. They did not pay their reckoning.</p>
<p>Q. Were not there other people in your house at the time?</p>
<p>Taber. There were five people from Buckinghamshire that deal in lace; and one Kelsey, a soldier, that was tried here yesterday.</p>

He used to bring two or three people with him. I draw'd him a tankard of beer on the 2d of June, at past ten at night, in a silver tankard, and delivered it to him. They were sitting in a box over against each other; and there were some lace men at the farther end of the room, and a soldier sat opposite to them (they were sitting near the street window.) They sent me down for a pint of twopenny, and I brought it up; but they were both gone, tankard and all.</p>
<p>Q. Where was Kelsey?</p>
<p>A. Bagley. He was sitting in his place when they were gone. I went after this to Bridewell, and saw the prisoner in his waistcoat beating hemp. I knew him as well in his waistcoat as in his coat.</p>

I took it to have been in the fire, in order to burn off the leather. Then I ordered my wife to let it continue in the scale, to see if any body would come to enquire about it; and in about half an hour's time there came a young man and woman, and ask'd if there was any such brass brought that day.</p>

<p>Wright. They brought a housing with them. I then judged it was the same they inquired about. Upon comparing it, they desired me to let them have some of it to carry to their master. I readily granted it. When the man was at justice Keeling's I was there. The man said, he bought it of a woman, and he could lend her [She was taken by his deferioing her the same night, and brought.] There she correcyed she had a full pot and a dram for selling it to Davis. said, he gave her four shillings and six-pence for it, and I gave him nine shillings; but then I believe there was but a little above eight pounds of that brass, some of the parcel being old because and other sort of stuff.</p>

<join result="persNameOccupation" targOrder="Y" targets="t17560915-36-victim276 t17560915-36-viclabel189"/>. About the 18th of July my house was under a general repair, and we had removed our things out of the way of the workman as much as we could. The piece of silk was in a drawer, the breeches lay open in a one pair of stairs room, and the other things mentioned in the indictment in the house. They were all taken away.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever find them again ?</p>
<p>Shudal. I have got them all again. The prisoner at the bar hired herself to my wife as a single woman, and a stranger to our part of the town; but we were immediately convinced she was a base woman. At her first coming she would stay a great length of time in going of errands, and for other ill behaviour I turned her away at three weeks end. After which there came a man to me, and inquired if I had lost a pair of breeches? I said, I had. Then the person told me who had them. I went then and took a warrant for the prisoner, and one Bowen. Upon which Bowen came to me and told me he had bought the breeches of the prisoner; which she, when before the justice, owned also. She also confessed in my hearing, she did take all the things mentioned in the indictment; and she gave her key to Mrs. Jenkins (who was by at the time) who went to her box and found the other things.</p>
<p>Q. Where was her box?</p>
<p>Shudal. In her master's house, Mr. Watson in Smithfield (the goods produced in court, and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Mrs. Jenkins. I live at Fleetditch, and the prisoner had lived with me several times on and off. After I was informed the prosecutor had lost these things, I sent for her to ask her about them; at first she denied it, but before we went to the justice she own'd she stole the breeches, and sold them to Bowen. I insisted upon her keys to look over er things, imagining there might be something of mine there, and in searching her box these other things were found in it.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175609150016"/>Q. What was her behaviour while she lived with you?</p>
<p>Mrs. Jenkins. I always thought her to have the best of characters, I have trusted her with things of great value, and was much surprised to see her turn out in this manner.</p>

I am a constable in Shadwell parish There being a great outcry between twelve and one o'clock, on the 7th of August at night, I went to see what was the matter, and Mr. Clark gave me charge of the prisoner Collings for a robbery. I took her to the watch-house, and after a little time the prisoner King was brought in by some other person. The prosecutor was there, and I asked him if he knew either of the prisoners.</p>
<p>Q. Was he drunk or sober?</p>
<p>Jones. At first he did not seem to be in liquor. He told me he was sure they were the two persons that had rob'd him.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you in what manner they rob'd him?</p>
<p>Jones. No, he did not. He said he had lost a hat and ring, and some money, and charged me with both of them. I asked him more than once whether he was sure the prisoners were the persons that rob'd him, and he said he was.</p>
<p>Q. What did the prisoners say?</p>
<p>Jones. Collings denied the fact. King said she found the hat.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the hat found?</p>
<p>Jones. I don't know, I did not see it that night, nor the ring neither. I searched King, but found nothing upon her. [The hat and ring were then produced in court.]</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutor. Do you know whose property these are ?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. They are mine, and what I lost that night.</p>
<p>Mr. Clark. About a quarter of an hour under or over twelve o'clock at night, August the 7th, Collings came into my house, and wanted two penny-worth of bread and cheese. I said, you shall have nothing here. She then wanted me to change a piece of money. I saw it was only a counter, so would have nothing to do with it. The prosecutor was at the door; she ran out to him, put her hand into his pocket, took out a six pence, and gave it me to change. The other prisoner was there; they took him one under one arm, and the other under the other, and drag'd him along. He drop'd on his knees, and I saw King take his hat from off his head.</p>
<p>Q. Is this hat here produced the same?</p>
<p>Clerk. I can't say it is. I observed King had him fast by the hand, tho' I did not see the ring taken from him; but he missed it directly.</p>

<p>Q. How far might he be got?</p>

<p>Q. Had he not paid his part before?</p>
<p>Pratt. No, he had not. Then he attempted to make believe he wanted to make water again, and beg'd they would go into the house first; however, Mr. Williams got him into the house and searched him, but did not find the watch upon him.

I took hold of the pot and drank to the man of the house, he drank to Clark, and Clark to the prisoner, the prisoner drank it up, and bid the landlord till it. Then the prisoner went and sat down by the right side of the prosecutor, sat there some time, and sang a song or two; at last he removed from thence, and sat at the corner of the box; after that he came and sat by me, Clark and I being drinking together in the opposite box. The prosecutor got up, and feeling for his watch said. I have lost my watch. The prisoner went out directly. Clark had some suspicion of him, as he lodged in the house and had never seen the prisoner there before, so went out after him. [He was obliged to go into the country next morning, so we are destitute of his evidence.] I went out soon after, and then the prisoner was at the door again; they were arguing who should go in first. Clark said, I lodge here, and can come in when I please. I asked what was the matter, and the prisoner saying he would not go in, I took him by the collar, led him in, and searched him. Then Clark said, he has been up a little further, let us go and see if he has not left the watch there. We went, and there I saw the watch lying under a bench by the side of a door, about a dozen or 14 yards from the house where we were.</p>
<p>Q. Did Clark go to him to the place where you found the watch before the prisoner came in?</p>
<p>Williams. No, he did not, but stood at the door and call'd to him, and he came to the door; nobody went thither till after we had brought the prisoner into the house.</p>

I had placed my goods in an empty house belonging to one Jones, an upholsterer, as I was going abroad, and my wife was gone out of town for the benefit of the air, being in an ill state of health. The prisoner and his family were admitted to live in part of the house below stairs, rent free, by the landlord, and my goods were lock'd up in a one pair of stairs room. I went abroad in April, and return'd in November. I expressed my uneasiness at my goods being in a dangerous situation, and on the first of May I applied to look at the house where they were placed.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175609150019"/> I found there was a padlock on the outer iron gate belonging to the house. I inquired of the people in the neighbourhood, who told me the prisoner had not been seen for two or three days, and that a cart load of goods had been convey'd away a few days before that. Upon this I went to the landlord, and desired him to come with me to the house. He did so, and we broke a door open to get in; and upon opening the door of the room where my goods were placed, and searching the trunks (wherein had been put goods of all sorts, linen, china, &c.) we found every thing empty; but as there are some particular articles that I can charge him with, I think it needless to trouble the court with the rest; the following things we can produce, a gause handkerchief embroider'd with gold, 5 cambrick handkerchiefs, and a remnant of cambrick (produced in court and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Q. Where did you meet with them?</p>
<p>Barbutt. At Mr. Gibons's a pawnbroker, at the corner of Turnstile, but did not secure the prisoner till the 13th of last month, as he was out of the way and I could not find him. When I charged him with having rob'd me, he seem'd to be extremely concern'd for what he had done. He was examined before the justice, where he own'd the fact, and was committed to the Gatehouse. He gave an account where part of the things were, and we found them by his direction.</p>

I lost upwards of 40 l. but there is a mistake in the indictment for instead of 3 guineas it should have been 30; there were upwards of 30, which I lost along with the foreign gold pieces.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the money taken from?</p>
<p>Limbrick. It was all in one drawer, in my lodging room.</p>
<p>Q. What was the prisoner?</p>
<p>Limbrick. She was my servant about three months.</p>
<p>Q. Were the drawers lock'd?</p>
<p>Limbrick. They were, but by taking out the upper drawer the board it run upon was broke; so she could put her hand down and take it out.</p>
<p>Q. When did you lose it?</p>
<p>Limbrick. It was in January was twelve months. She left my house upon it, and I advertised her directly. When she was taken, she confessed the fact to me. I asked her how she came to rob me. She said she took all the money, and was sorry for it. I asked her what she had done with it, and she said she had squander'd it away.</p>
<p>Q. Did she mention any of the particular pieces ?</p>
<p>Limbrick. No, she did not. She said that after she had taken it she went to a house in Drury-Lane, where she gave a woman four guineas to go and buy her some things.</p>
<p>The prisoner had nothing to say in her defence.</p>
