I said, Harkee, Sir, and took him by his two hands, and took a ring out of each hand; they seemed as if they stuck there with something; my daughter got hold of him also; he got away and left his cane.

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I had been at Horn-fair, and coming back up the Minories, I went into the gentlewoman's shop, and asked to see a ring of about 12 s. I took a ring, and put it on my finger, and asked the price; she said, a guinea: I had then one in my hand; I said I wanted one at half a guinea; she snatched them from me, and said I came to rob her; my cane was lying on the compter; she seized that, said she, you have no money in your pocket; I took and threw a guinea on the compter; she ran between me and the compter, and in my flurry, I lost my guinea: I went away, and returned again for my cane; she would not let me have it; she said to the girl, go and call your father, he is at the Three Kings. I had drank a little; I went and asked for the Three Kings, and asked for a gentleman that keeps a Silver-smith's shop; they told me he was gone home, they having taken a thief in his shop: I said, I am that person that was in his shop: I staid till he came there; he seiz'd me by the collar, and said, I'll mell you! I said, hear what I have to say: he demanded where I liv'd? I said, in White-Horse-Yard, Catherine-street: they asked me to drink a glass of wine; I sat down: then Mrs. Harding came, and said, Say you took them out of a joke: no, said I, I shall not acknowledge myself a thief. After that, they told me to go about my business, but I would not go without my cane.</p>
<p>Mrs. Harding. He never show'd any money to me, and he had not the ring on his finger; he did come back for his cane, but I would not let him have it; and he was gone again before my husband came.</p>

On the 21st, the prisoner took an opportunity of staying till all the rest of the men were gone to breakfast; and after he was gone, the plates were missing. I went to Guildhall, and took a search-warrant, and went to his lodgings in a little street near Break-neck stairs, at the house of one Harris; there we found seven plates, a mustard pot, and pepper caster; two of the plates we had missed a day or two before; five of the plates were marked; I saw my apprentice mark them: upon my shewing the prisoner the things, he begged pardon, and offered to go down on his knee. I took him before the Alderman; there he owned the fact.

<p>Q. Where did you buy her?</p>
<p>Bradley. I bought her at Turnham-green; she stood there, where we call to water, going up and coming down, the farther Pack-horse. Mr. Clark, that lives there, told me she was to be sold; she was standing in the street, with a sack on her back, and the prisoner was by her. He said, if I had a mind to have her, I should have her on trial; so I took out one of my own horses, and put her in, and drove to London, and out again to Turnham-green. The prisoner met me on the road, and got upon the coach, and rode to Turnham-green. I asked the price of the mare, but cannot be certain whether he asked eight guineas or seven: I agreed to give him six guineas and a half: I think I gave him half a guinea earnest, and he rode the mare along by the coach to Staines, and paid him the remainder of the money, and he delivered the mare up to me.</p>
<p>Q. What is the value of the mare?</p>
<p>Bradley. I cannot tell; she is over age.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutor. What is the mare worth?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I never intended to part with her, so I never set a price on her. She can be worth no less than 16 or 18 guineas.</p>
<p>Bradley. The prisoner came with me to Turnham-green the next day; he said, she was his own, and he sold her because she was too heavy for him.</p>
<p>Mr. Grinstead. I saw the mare in Mr. Manby's field, on the 17th of August, between six and seven at night, and in the morning she was gone. I was with Mr. Manby, when Mr. Bradley delivered the mare up to him; I know her very well.</p>

In about half an hour, I missed my watch, and taxed the prisoner with it, because he sat close by that side of me. He blasted my eyes, and said, he had not got it, and swore I never wore a watch.

I knocked at a door, but am not sure it was the right door.

<p>Q. Did you go up stairs with a woman?</p>
<p>Howell. I don't remember that I did; I was in liquor. The justice said, he must find that house and the woman; we went there with a constable: going back, he told me if I would make it up, he would let me have my watch, and pay the expence I had been at. I told him I was very agreeable to that, if the justice was. His wife was present: he desired leave to speak with her. He sent her home, and she carried the watch to my master's house: then I had word sent me it was there, and I was desired to come home. After that, the watch was carried before the justice, and he committed the prisoner.</p>

When he said I am robbed, Mr. Butler said, God forbid: the prisoner said he never knew him to wear a watch in his life. He went out to call the watch, and the prisoner staid all night.

On the 3rd of November, the prisoner came to fetch out a handkerchief she had pledged before; she said, her name was Monk, and I delivered it to her: she then wanted to see some gold ear-rings; I reached down twenty-two, linked together, some with knobs, and some only wires, she bid me weigh a pair, which I did; they came to 5 s. 6 d. she reached to me, and took the whole link; then she said, weigh another pair, and kept the link in her hand. While I was looking down to tell her the price, she said, I'll give you 5 s. for the first pair: she laid the link down, and said, I have no money to pay for them, put them in a paper, and I'll call for them presently, and away she went: I looked at the link, and found there were but 18 pair; I ran to the door, but she was out of sight. As we set down in a book where every body lives that use our shop, we looked, and found her by the name Monk, and lived in Kingstreet, New Gravel-lane. I and our little boy went there; and, on enquiring at the third door, she came to the door herself: I took her by the petticoat, and said, you jade, you have robbed me. She said, she did not know me: I was in the street, and she on the threshold; her mother came, and said, you vile jade, you shall not hold my child: she tore my handkerchief, and threw me down, and both of them used me in a very bad manner: she shoved her daughter into the house, and I kept hold of her: she got her into a great chair, and sat upon her: the girl took something out of her pocket in a paper, and delivered it to her mother: I said, let me see it; she said I should not. My husband came, and staid by her, while I went for a constable: I never found my ear-rings: both the mother and daughter offered to pay for them, or to make me any satisfaction. She was taken before Justice Berry, who committed the mother to New Prison, and the daughter to Bridewell.</p>

<p>Q. What is she?</p>
<p>Crofts. They say she is a girl of the town, but I did not know that when I took her in; she used to come down to my room in a morning, to have a little water for tea. On the 20th of March, I was at home at dinner, and went to my work again with the key of the box, in which were thirteen guineas, all the money I had; the box was put under the head of my bed, and locked, and when I looked for my money, which was on the Thursday following, it was gone: the 20th was on a Tuesday.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen it last?</p>
<p>Crofts. I had seen it about ten days before: my wife went to make the bed, and missed the box; it was found under the prisoner's bed, broke open; but the prisoner had quitted her lodgings on that 20th of March, and I never could light of her till the 21st of October. I could hear of her several times, that she was at the Goat and Black Horse, in the Strand.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day did she leave her lodgings?</p>
<p>Crofts. She left them on the Tuesday, in the afternoon, before I came home from work, which was at six, or half an hour after. When she found I was after her, she removed to another place. I found her at last, in Duck-lane, within an hundred yards of my house: I heard where she was, and went to her: she had lodged with us at times, about three quarters of a year.</p>
<p>Q. What did she say?</p>
<p>Crofts. She said, How do you do, Mr. Crofts? I said, but very indifferent: how do you do? as hearty as a buck, said she. I said to the constable, there is your prisoner. Said she, must I go along with you? I said, yes. D - n you, she said, you have taken me at a disadvantage. When she came to the justice's, she denied it, and said, another woman took it; but we never saw the other woman before or since. She says, she left the other woman at Manchester or Birmingham: there was a woman at dinner with us that day, in my room, the room where the box was: she was a stranger to us.</p>

<p>Q. Did she owe you any thing when she went away?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. She owed me 10 s. I did not know of her going: the lock of the box was broke all to pieces; my husband was at work when I found it: there was nothing of any consequence in it, except the 13 guineas, which were taken away; they were in a little purse, and my husband kept the key.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen the box before?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I believe I had seen it about four or five days before. On that Tuesday, she had a breast of mutton and turnips, and dined in my room, and a young woman with her that I never saw before.</p>
<p>Q. How long did that young woman stay?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. She staid there a few hours.</p>
<p>Q. How long did your husband stay?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. He staid no longer than his dinner hour; the prisoner and that woman both went away together, about two hours after my husband.</p>
<p>Q. Did you continue in the room all the time they were there?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I did.</p>
<p>Q. from Prisoner. Did not she agree that woman should lie along with me, unknown to her husband, for a week?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. No. I never saw that woman before or since.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I lodged with them, on and off, two years. I never thought they were worth a guinea, or a
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176412120012"/> quarter of a guinea, in the world. Their house was open to all comers and goers: that day that I went away, I came down stairs, and said I was very ill; the woman that lodged with me, got a dram; he, his wife, and she, got all drunk together; I laid down on the bed. I went with a friend into the country, and when I came back, I went to live where he found me; I did not go to his house, because I owed him some money: I am as innocent of it, as the child unborn. She sent me that day to pawn her gown.</p>
<p>Q. to S. Crofts. Did you ever send her to pawn your gown?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. No, I never sent her to pawn any thing.</p>
<p>Q. Can you recollect when you had seen your money last?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I hit the chamber-pot against the box under the bed on the Sunday morning before it was lost.</p>
<p>Q. Was you out on that Tuesday?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I never go out, from year's end to years end. I was not out that Sunday, nor the Monday neither: I did go out on the Tuesday to Tothill-street, on an errand, but I was not gone half an hour.</p>

<p>S. Crofts. I went in the forenoon.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the prisoner then?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. She was then in the house.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lock your room door?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I did; but we have a little back-door, that has only a button to it.</p>
<p>Q. Did she know of your going out?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I don't know that she did.</p>
<p>Q. Had you seen her any time that morning?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I had seen her a very little time before I went out; she used frequently to come down to our room, pretending she could not be by herself.</p>
<p>Q. When you came back, how did you find that back door?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. Then I found it unbuttoned.</p>
<p>Q. Had she used to come into your room by that door?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. She used to come sometimes by one door, and sometimes the other.</p>
<p>Q. Was it easy to open that door?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. The button is withinside, but it may be opened with a knife very easily.</p>
<p>Q. Was it buttoned when you went out?</p>
<p>S. Crofts. I turned the button with my own hand, when I went out.</p>

As soon as he was gone, I bid my man open the press door; he did, and there were four pair missing; he followed, and took the prisoner by the collar, about sixteen yards from the door: he brought him back, and six pair of shoes were found upon him: he had taken two from above, and four below; (produced and deposed to): I took him before Justice Fielding, who committed him: going in the coach to New Prison, I asked him where my goods were, having lost a good many shoes: he said, come to me; I took my brother and another person; he confessed to goods being at four pawnbrokers, which are here in court.

<p>Q. What did he say when he took the money?</p>
<p>Colwell. He said nothing to me: there is an iron gate; he could not get through without going side-ways: I almost got to him: there was a black boy on the out-side of the gate; he said, What has he done?

<p>Q. What is that black boy's name?</p>
<p>Colwell. His name is Guardaloup.</p>
<p>Q. Had you light enough to see the man's person?</p>
<p>Colwell. Every door has a lamp; and that door where I stood upon the steps. (Mr. Crisp's) had two lamps: the man stood before me there when he got the money out of my hand; he walked with me to that door; I asked him whether he lived there? he said, Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How far did he walk with you?</p>
<p>Colwell. He walked with me from the middle of the court; that is not above twenty yards; he did not take hold of my arm till I got to the door; the lamp shone upon him; his face was white all over.</p>

<p>Q. Was he searched?</p>
<p>Colwell. They pull'd off his shoes and stockings to search him; he said he would leave his holland shirt with my mistress; and if my mistress would let him send home to his wife, he would send for the money that I lost.</p>
<p>Q. Did he not say it was a mistake, he was not the man?</p>
<p>Colwell. At first he did; after that, he desired they would let him have a coach, for he would not go without.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever say he was the man that robbed you?</p>
<p>Colwell. No, he did not; he wanted sadly to get away, but we kept the door pretty fast.</p>

<p>The prisoner, in his defence, said, he was just come up on a furlough from Tilbury fort, having lately come from the West Indies; and landed out of a Gravesendboat, and was going along the key: that he never saw the box or bag till before my Lord Mayor: that he was asking his way to Tower-Hill, to receive his prize-money for taking Martinica, when they took him: that he had been twenty-six years and four months in the King's service.</p>

I said I was not certain; so she took in the prisoner: I happened to come home this day week, and found my chest broke open; I looked round the room, and found nothing in it belonging to me, but the bare chest, and a few trifling things: I came down and asked Mrs. Guest whether that man lodged with her? she said, Yes; and that he had been gone out about an hour: I told her he had taken all I had: she went up and found it so: looking round the room, I found a pillow-bier full of tools, and his own clothes upon them; she said he would come back again soon; that he was gone to the jolly sailors; I said, If he is as big as Goliah, I'll take him; we went out and saw him coming; when he came to the door, I said, you are my prisoner, till an officer comes: he said, What's the matter? what's the matter? I sent for an officer; this was in Mrs. Guest's house: I said, are not you a villain, to rob me so? said he, Countryman, don't be hard upon me: the officer came in; we took him to a public house; he had breeches on, that long to a suit of clothes of mine; we found a penny chip box, that my money was in, was thrown into the close-stool, and there lay his breeches over it in the close-stool; he acknowledged taking all the things but the money; he said he had not seen any money: he was asked how he came to put the box into the close-stool? to which he made no answer: he had left my coat and a piece of dowlas at Mrs. Murray's, at the Noah's Ark, where he had had a shilling in eatables.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know that?</p>
<p>Sims. He told us so; we found them there; some of the other things he had sold, and some he had pawned: in shaking the breeches he had on, out fell a piece of copper, that had been among my money, when in the chest: he was put into the watch-house, and the next morning carried before the bench of Justices in Whitechapel, and was committed.</p>
<p>Q. What were your clothes worth?</p>
<p>Sims. The suit of clothes cost me five guineas, not three months ago.</p>
<p>Mr. Danislow. I am an officer; I was sent for to carry the prisoner to the watch-house: I found this coat at Mrs. Murray's (producing it): this pair of breeches the prisoner had on; (producing them and a waistcoat: deposed to by prosecutor.)</p>
<p>Mrs. Murray. The prisoner brought this coat and left it with me last Thursday, between 11 and 12 o'clock; he desired I would put it by till he called for it; he had had a shilling in meat and drink, and asked me for a lodging.</p>
