<p>Wyman. He did know that.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ask you any questions when he bought the first parcel of you?</p>
<p>Wyman. No, he only asked me who I bought them of; and I said of a sailor's wife.</p>
<p>Mr. Vere. This evidence confess'd the taking these cups and saucers, and owned they were my property, after he was detected, before abundance of witnesses, that I could produce.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know any thing of your own knowledge about it, besides his confession of the prisoner's receiving the goods, knowing them to have been stolen?</p>
<p>Vere. The cups and saucers were found in the prisoner's house. We had a constable and a search warrant to search his house, from justice Fielding. The evidence, Wyman, went along with us, and took down the china from the different shelves in th e shop, and said it was my property.</p>
<p>Q. What is the constable's name?</p>
<p>Vere. His name is

<p>Q. Who found them ?</p>
<p>Smith. The evidence Wyman went to the shelves and took them down, and said they were Mr. Vere's property.</p>
<p>Vere. These are of the same patterns and kinds that I have a great number of; I cannot swear to the identity of them, for any other of the trade may have of the same patterns; I have nothing to go by, but the confession of Wyman.</p>
<p>Court. A confession out of court will not go beyond what he swears in court.</p>
<p>Vere. The prisoner own'd he had bought several sets of china of my servant, and that those he bought of him, and he gave him a guinea for the first seven sets; that the five sets were brought afterwards, which he had not paid him for. Before justice Sydenham he said he did not know that Wyman was my servant, but that he knew he lived with a china-man, but did not know with whom; he afterwards said otherwise, he said he thought by the price that they could not be honestly come by, and he had an intention of coming to me, to acquaint me with it. The second time of examination he said he did not know how he came by the five sets, that he found them in his shop. I asked him what day, he said he believed the Friday or Saturday; this was over night, when examined the next morning, he said he found them on the Friday morning on a bulk.</p>
<p>Q. What is the value of those seven sets of cups and saucers?</p>
<p>Vear. They cost me on an average about 4 s. 6 d. a set.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I am innocent of the affair; I bought them, but I did not know them to be stolen; I gave him a guinea in part for the first parcel; I was not at home when he brought the others.</p>

<p>Q. Can you tell who rob'd you?</p>
<p>Taylor. The prisoner lived with me above twelve months, and some of the things were found upon him; the things that were in my pocket on the Saturday night, were in his pocket on the Sunday morning.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you go to bed on Saturday night ?</p>
<p>Taylor. At 12 o'clock; and arose at 7 in the morning.</p>
<p>Q. Was any part of your house broke open?</p>
<p>Taylor. My maid got up first; and came and told me that my cellar door, that was bolted with two bolts, was open; she told me she found my keys thrown about the cellar, and she brought them up to me. I told her I had put them into the till of my table, by my bed-side.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure you put them there?</p>
<p>Taylor. I am certain I did.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to those several places that those keys lock'd?</p>
<p>Taylor. These were the keys of my cupboards, and places where I kept my liquors.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the key where your money was kept?</p>
<p>Taylor. It was in the bureau where I left my money. I double lock'd the bureau, and left the key in.</p>
<p>Q. Where was your bureau ?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175809130007"/>Taylor. It was at my bed's feet, in the room where I lie. When I came to look there, I found my lock spoiled and all my money gone.</p>
<p>Q. Was all this money mentioned in the indictment, in that bureau?</p>
<p>Taylor. It was. I had put some in when I went to bed.</p>
<p>Q. Did it appear to have been forced open?</p>
<p>Taylor. By pulling, the wood was forced, so that I was obliged to have the smith to mend it. My shoe buckles were in my shoes, and the teaspoons in my pocket at my bed's foot, and my ear-ring and little knife.</p>
<p>Q. When you missed all this money, what did you do ?</p>
<p>Taylor. I had some friends came in and desired me to advertise my loss. After it was advertised, there came a man out of Rosemary-lane, and said that this man at the bar came into his shop, and had a great deal of gold in his pocket; and he had bought all new cloaths, and changed his old ones, he did not name the prisoner, only described him; he had bought a shirt, and stockings, and other things.</p>
<p>Q. What day was this ?</p>
<p>Taylor. This was on the Monday morning about 10 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. How long had the prisoner been gone from your service?</p>
<p>Taylor. He had been gone about fourteen months.</p>
<p>Q. Did you guess it to be the prisoner?</p>
<p>Taylor. A neighbour stood by, and said it is your Jack that liv'd with you.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do upon that?</p>
<p>Taylor. The man said, I have got a knife and an ear-ring, which were in his pocket, I will fetch them, may be you may know them; he brought them to me, I knew them to be mine, and in my pocket on the Saturday night. Then my neighbours set out to see for the prisoner, they took him and carried him before justice Fielding; they searched him where they took him, on Saffron-hill, as they told me. They brought 22 l. and some half-pence, which they said they found upon him. I was at justice Fielding's with him, he said he found this money in the Fleet-market. I ask'd him where he found my buckles, he said along with it. He owned he changed the buckles and three tea-spoons, to buy a pair of buckles for himself. He said he was not in my house on the Saturday night after he went out at 9 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him in your house on Saturday night?</p>
<p>Taylor. I did. He would not confess at the justice's.</p>

I am a stocking-maker by trade; but I keep a little shop, and sell linen and other things. The prisoner at the bar came to my house to buy a shirt, and he bought also a pair of stockings, and a stock, on the 13th of last month about 9 or 10 o'clock; he had bought a hat of Mr. Boyce, and changed a three pound twelve to pay for it.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that?</p>
<p>Linstead. Both the prisoner and Mr. Boyce told me so; and the prisoner owned the same before justice Fielding. He had bought a suit of cloaths of Mr. Johnson in Rosemary-lane; he had the cloaths on his back before the justice. Johnson is not here. After he had bought these cloaths he came to my house, and he went to be shaved, and left all his new cloaths in my house. He returned and shifted himself in my house; he went backwards and pulled out silver spoons, and a handful of broad pieces of gold, in the sight of a woman, who told me of it, the moment he went out. He said I have been five hours in this lane laying out money; I have received 40 l. and have taken 10 shillings in half-pence. Next morning I read the advertisement of Mrs. Taylor's losing 130 l. in St. Mary Ax; I went to her, and acquainted her with what I had observed. I describ'd the prisoner, and mentioning spoons, she said there were some spoons gone with the rest of the things. She and the servants said, sure it is not Jack, or

He had put a pair of square silver buckles into his shoes; and when he was before justice Fielding he had a pair of round ones on.</p>
<p>Q. to Mrs. Taylor. What sort of buckles were yours ?</p>
<p>Taylor. They were square ones.</p>
<p>Linstead. I told the prisoner before the justice, they were not the buckles that he put in his shoes at my house; he said they were, a good while; but at last he owned that he had changed them and the spoons away to a silversmith, for a pair of new buckles. I went where he directed, and amongst a number of buckles, I picked them out.

I am servant to the prosecutrix, the prisoner came in, and called for a penny-worth of beer on Saturday night about nine o'clock. I drew it, he followed me down the stairs, he went down one pair of stairs, and I another. Some time afterwards I went to draw some more beer, he was left below. I called to him thro' the door to know if he would have a candle; he staid there I believe ten minutes; he made an excuse to go to the little-house. He came up and drank his beer, and went away directly.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him afterwards ?</p>
<p>King. No, I did not. The next morning I told her he had been down in the cellar. There was a neighbour called to me, and said, Tom how came you to leave your cellar window open.</p>

Going to step into the necessary, I kicked something before me; I found it to be keys; I groped about being dark, I picked up some large and some small ones; I knew them to be my mistress's keys.</p>
<p>Q. Was that window bolted?</p>
<p>Draper. I am sure it was bolted on the Saturday; it is never opened but when the brewers come. As I was coming up out of the cellar, a neighbour called, and said your cellar window is open. I was afraid my mistress was murdered, and dared not go up for some time. I called her once or twice before she answered me. I went to the side on her bed, and told her I found her keys off the ring, and the cellar door open. She got up and missed her gold and things, and said I have lost all I had in the world. I put her things on, she was in such a flutter. I missed he buckles out of her shoes; after she was gone down she said she had some money in her pocket at the foot of the bed. I went up for it, and it was all gone. She had not a half-penny left in the house, neither gold, silver, or brass. On the Monday morning about 10 o'clock Mr. Linstead came, and asked my mistress if she had any suspicion of any body committing the robbery; he described the prisoner at the bar, we all said it was

I had hung her on the palisade, and in about a quarter of an hour, coming by that place, I saw her again held by the hand of a young man, whom I was informed was the prisoner at the bar, it was so dark I did not observe him so as to know him again; there were two other persons disputing with him, one said the other had no business with her, the other said he had good reason to ask him, being a stranger, what business he had with her, or to that purport; the young man held her while I mounted, and I rode on 2 or 300 yards to another patient; I ride with a double bridle, there I buckled the long rein to a rail. I have a buckle for that purpose about the middle of that rein. I staid in that house about ten or fifteen minutes; when I came out the mare was gone again, and no bridle remaining on the rail. Some time after I found her in the possession of my servant and a gentleman, who had got the prisoner with them; then I sent for an
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175809130010"/> officer, and next day took him before justice Fielding, where he said he was in liquor, and knew little or nothing about the mare.</p>
<p>Q. How did you find the rein of the bridle?</p>
<p>Davis. The rein was cut.</p>

I am servant to Mr. Davis, I was sent to see for the mare, by my master, when she was lost; I came home again and could not find her. I was sent out with some medicines, and going along the road, I found the prisoner on the back of her.</p>
<p>Q. How far was this from the place where your master missed her?</p>
<p>Pettit. It was about half a mile distance.</p>
<p>Mr. Davis. She was lost from Mare-street Hackney, opposite Mr. Batcheldor's house.</p>
<p>Pettit. That is about half a mile distance from the place where I found her.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner going towards London or the country?</p>
<p>Pettit. He was going towards the country, Essex or Hertfordshire; the bridle was cut and hung down. I told him I thought he rode in danger, as his bridle was under the horse's feet. I then did not know it was my master's mare. I went near to him, he said he would satisfy me if I would get him somebody to mend it; when I discovered the mare, I kept him in discourse till I got him to a publick house; there I got a person to assist me, and brought him and the mare to my master's house.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this?</p>
<p>Pettit. This was very near 10 o'clock at night, my master had been at home then about half an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Pettit. I never saw him before to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. What time was it when you missed the mare the last time?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I apprehend it was more than nine o'clock when I missed her. It was not more than half an hour till she was brought to me, with the prisoner at the bar.</p>
<p>Pettit. When I got the prisoner to that publick house, and charged him with taking my master's mare; he gave the bridle a snatch and wanted to get away, and then he pretended to be very much in liquor.</p>
<p>Q. Was he in liquor?</p>
<p>Pettit. I really think he was not so much in liquor as he pretended to be; before Mr. Fielding he said he did not know how he came by the mare.</p>

I was going home the second Monday in August, I saw a man leading Mr. Davis's mare, I call'd to him to know what he was going to do with her; said he, I am leading her about. She having been taken from my door but the Saturday before, made me the more inquisitive about her. He led her from the foot way towards the road. I said to one Simpson that was with me, I fancy that man is going away with her. I ran after him, then he came back with the mare, and began to swear; and was very angry with me for troubling myself about it. Mr. Davis came out, and he held the mare while Mr. Davis mounted; and rode on, and the man followed him. Then I imagined he had come to call Mr. Davis to some patient. Mr. Simpson said to me when we first saw him, this is the man that served his time with Mr. Bosson.</p>

I was going home at that time with Mr. Covey, when we came to Church-road at Hackney, about nine at night or half an hour after, we saw the prisoner at the bar walking Mr. Davis's horse down the road. Covey desired me to stop a little, and said that mare was stole from his door the Saturday before, he call'd to the prisoner, he returned again with the mare; as he pass'd by me, I said I believe I know the man, he served part of his time with a smith. He walk'd her into Church-road, there the prisoner began to abuse Mr. Covey. Mr. Davis soon came out, and mounted, and rode away. Then I told Mr. Covey, I knew that was the same person, which is the prisoner at the bar.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I had been at Hackney all that afternoon, and was much in liquor; coming down Mare-street, I found the mare loose in the road. I took her by the bridle, and lead her down towards Church-street. I got past Mr. Davis's door; I did not know it was his mare, but when I was told it was his, I was going to bring her back again, and his servant stop'd me.</p>

<p>Graham. No, but I saw her put down her apron, and I missed the handkerchiefs directly; I asked my sister, that waits in the shop, after the handkerchiefs. she said she had not seen them; then I asked another gentlewoman that stood near the prisoner, she said she knew nothing of them. I was not willing to charge the prisoner with them till I was sure. She said, Mistress, do you think that I have got them. I pulled her apron back, and saw the corner of one; then I said I believe you have got them; upon which she took them from out of her apron, and flung them at me, and d - d, and called me names; (the handkerchiefs produced in the court and deposed to.)</p>

Mrs. Graham had called to her husband, who was above; she took up the handkerchiefs, and laid them on the compter; the prisoner ran out of the shop, but was soon taken, and brought in again: then she went on her knees, and said it was the first fault she ever did.</p>

<p>I was coming home, and went into this shop to buy a stomacher, and brushing against the things, the handkerchiefs fell down; the woman said she missed her handkerchiefs, I look'd down, and saw them lying on the ground; I stooped down, and took them up, and gave them to her.</p>

<p>Captain Wilson. The prisoner belongs to my company; I have known him about two years, he has behaved remarkably well; I never heand him suspected, he bears as good a character as any in the company.</p>
<p>- Dunman. I am a serjeant in the same company to which the prisoner belongs, he has been in the regiment three years next November, we never had cause to suspect him to be guilty of theft, or neglect of duty. He has been trusted in the barracks with our knapsacks, we never missed anything after him; the evidence Haines acknowledged before the justice that he himself took the milk-pot.</p>
<p>- Hinemarsh. I am likewise a serjeant in the same company, I have known him from his first inlisting.</p>
<p>Q. What is his general character?</p>
<p>Hinemarsh. He has an extraordinary good character, our cloaths use to hang up in the barracks, and he has been trusted there, and we never missed any thing.</p>

(The prosecutor produced the two pieces, and deposed to them both as his property.)</p>
<p>Q. How do you know this cloth to be yours?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. The two pawn-brokers told me it was the same that the prisoner pawned to them; and if so, it is the same that I delivered to her.</p>

<p>I lodged at this man's house, he beat his wife so that she would not come nigh him; I would not let him know where his wife was gone, so he has done this out of spite; he gave me the cloth to pawn for him.</p>

On the Tuesday following he brought two ounces more; I desired him to leave it, and I would weigh it; I bid him call again in the afternoon. When he was gone, I went to justice Welch, and we went to the duke of Bedford's; the steward said, he did not know such a man.

<p>Abrahams. It is about a year ago; I shew'd the prisoner the bill and told her the tankard belong'd to a person in petticoat-lane, said she, pray send for Mr. Manning, naming his name, before I mentioned it. I charged a constable with her and went to Mr. Manning; she insisted upon it, another woman gave it her, and she was to have a shilling for selling it, she would not confess she took it from Mr. Manning's house.</p>

I carried it in, and said the woman asked 4 s. an ounce, or to leave it to his own option to give her what he would; then he sent for a constable, I said pray do not charge me, I'll carry you to the woman that owns it, the people said they saw the woman ran away.</p>

I agreed to give him that money, I went along with him, I asked him which way he came by it; he told me a man brought it to him; but he could not tell me who he was, nor where he lived, but said he look'd like a countryman, in his own hair.</p>
<p>Q. Did you mention in your advertisement, that the man should not be prosecuted?</p>
<p>Gibson. No, I did not. I took him before the justice to have him examined, he would not own any thing; but said he believed he could find the man.</p>

I am a shoemaker, and live facing Mr. Webb's, at Stoke-Newington; I was sitting at my door on Wednesday or Thursday, I believe, the 16th of August, about 3 or 4 in the afternoon, I saw the prisoner at the bar bring a mug out of Mr. Webb's house, in her hand; when she had got about half way over the road, she covered it with her apron.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of mug was it?</p>
<p>Guinnet. It was like this mug here produced; she went in at a chandler's shop facing the house where she was servant; that was the last time I saw her, till she was taken. On the Wednesday following we took her up; I first heard of her in Leather-lane, then in Cold-bath-fields, but I found her at last in Cloth-fair; I took her to the baker-and-basket, and then charged an officer with her, and sent for Mr. Webb; as soon as he came she confessed to have taken the mug, and that she had pawned it in Goodman's-fields.</p>

I live at Stoke-Newington, I saw the prisoner come out of Mr. Webb's house with this or such a mug in her hand; she held it cross-ways, not upright, and covered it, and carried it into a chandler's shop: I went to the last witness and said, I am surpriz'd Mr. Webb lets his mugs go out in such a manner.</p>
<p>Jer. Miller. I live in Goodman's-fields; this is the mug ( taking it into his hand) that I took in pledge of the prisoner at the bar, on the 16th of August; I asked her, if it was her own property? she said it was; and that it was left her by her friends in the country, and some little money.</p>
<p>Q. What did you lend her upon it?</p>
<p>Miller. I lent her 3 l.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know her before?</p>
<p>Miller. I knew her very well; she had been servant to our vestry-clerk, in Aylif-street, for some months, and did bear a good character.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>The mug is my own right and property; I had that, and 30 l. and this mourning which I have now on, left me by an aunt.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Webb. Are there any marks on the mug, by which you know it?</p>
<p>Webb. Here are the initial letters of my own and wife's name on it, and a very particular cypher on the body of it. she is a young girl, out of place, and I hope the court will be as favourable to her as possible.</p>

<p>Q. to prosecutor. Where do you live?</p>
<p>Thornton. I live at the bell in Petticoat-lane.</p>
<p>Pates. I told a soldier that was there of it and we took hold of the prisoner; a brother that was along with him, snatched it out of his coat pocket and ran away with it. The soldier ran after him and caught him, we carried them both to justice Welch, he asked the prisoner how he came by the mug, he would give no account of it. It was advertised, then Mr. Thornton came and owned it.</p>
<p>Thornton. The prisoner said he found it near the half-way house in digging in a clay-pit.</p>
<p>Pates. That was all he would say.</p>
<p>Thornton. The bottom of the mug is knock'd out, and cut into small square pieces, we have them here. ( The mug and pieces produced in court and deposed to.) Here is W. M. S. on the handle of it. I advertised it, describing it by these letters on the 19th of Ju ne.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I found the mug where I was at work.</p>
