She being used to the horse, I doubt not but she would have followed him, had she not been incumbered: we could track the horse down a lane: I took my horse, and, with Mr. Austin, came to London; I enquired at New-Cross turnpike; we found the horse had been brought through there: I came to Smithfield about twelve o'clock, and about three I saw the prisoner upon my horse. I went to him, and asked him if that horse was to be sold? he said, yes. I took hold of the bridle, and led him into the George-yard; I asked the price; he told me eight guineas, or eight pounds; Mr. Austin said to him, Get down, friend: I took him by the sleeve, brought him into the inn, and sent for a constable: I said it was my horse, and asked him, how he could do so? he said he had not stole him, but bought him in the Borough, that morning.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Allwin I do not know that he is known in my country: I think he came to my house, and asked for thrashing, about two months ago, but I am not certain.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen the horse last?</p>
<p>Allwin. I saw him on the Thursday afternoon, about four o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Describe him.</p>
<p>Allwin. A black gelding, with a bald face, three white feet, a swelling on the withers, and a little saddle-spot on the off-side: I bred him from a foal.</p>
<p>Q. How far is Bexley-Common from London?</p>
<p>Allwin. It is eleven miles from London.</p>

Mr. Allwin came to me the morning the gelding was missing, and desired I would go with him to London: we came to Smithfield together; we saw the prisoner on his gelding; he asked the price of him; the prisoner said eight guineas. When we asked him how he came by the gelding, he said he had swapped a little poney for him, in the Borough, that morning: we asked him at what house; he said it was in the street: we asked him where he lived; he said somewhere in Essex, and that he had lived at Queenhithe; and at this time, he said, he lived in London, sometimes in one place and sometimes in another: I knew the horse, from the foal.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I came out of the country a little time before, and put my horse up in the Borough: I seeing a man with this horse, and another man talking to him about the horse, I said I would swap with him; his horse and mine were both put up at the George there, near St. Margaret's-hill; I observed, by his tail being tied up, that he was to be sold; I changed mine for the gelding: I had lain at the Saracen's-head, on Snow-hill, the night before, and my horse was there also. The man that I changed with told me he lived at Epsom: I brought him to Smithfield, intending to sell him in the afternoon, and this gentleman told me it was his horse.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any witnesses to this?</p>
<p>Prisoner. No.</p>
<p>Q. Would you have the ostler at the Saracen's-head sent for?</p>
<p>Prisoner. If the Court pleases; his name is John: I do not know his other name. (He is sent for.)</p>

<p>Q. Look at the prisoner at the bar: do you know him?</p>
<p>Tison. I know him by sight; he had a horse three or four nights at our house.</p>
<p>Q. When?</p>
<p>Tison. About ten days ago: I cannot say justly the day.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a horse was it?</p>
<p>Tison. A sort of a black gelding; a star in his face; between a black and a brown.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176501160004"/>Q. How high?</p>
<p>Tison. I believe about fourteen hands high; it may be more.</p>
<p>Q. Do you call that a poney?</p>
<p>Tison. No; that is above the size of a poney.</p>
<p>Q. When was the last day he was at your house?</p>
<p>Tison. I cannot rightly recollect the day; but I am sure it was above a week ago.</p>
<p>Q. What do you think of last Thursday?</p>

I agreed to give him 5 s. and a pair of red shag breeches; but said he must bring me some body of credit, to prove what he had said, or I would go with him to his brother; he then began to hesitate, and wanted to have the things again: I could not leave my shop, but sent my brother with him, who returned, and gave me room to suspect they were stole.

It was shut: the prisoner was just turning round the counter as I came in, from towards the till, which is behind the counter, I went behind the counter, and found the till drawer pulled quite open. I looked, and saw I had lost two half guineas and a guinea; I went to the street door, and desired a neighbour to follow the boy, saying he had robbed my till.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner is the person you saw in your shop?</p>
<p>Theircher. I am very sure he is: he had a blue coat on, and a handkerchief about his neck; he was taken immediately, and brought back to my shop. I charged him with robbing me: he said he had never robbed any body. I said he had robbed me: he had half a guinea in his mouth, another half guinea in one pocket, and a guinea in another pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Did you promise to let him go, if he would give up the money?</p>
<p>Theircher. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen the money before?</p>
<p>Theircher. I had seen it but a very few minutes before in the till.</p>
<p>Q. Is your shop a part of your dwelling-house?</p>
<p>Theircher. It is.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>Real necessity drove me to this: I took and sold it this man; he came afterwards, and told me I did not come honestly by it, and if I would give him his money again he would not hurt a hair of my head: I sent my wife, and she sold some things, and gave him a crown: he said he would not put it up without I gave him the whole money; then my wife went and sold her cardinal; then I brought him ten shillings in all, he took it, and said he would not hurt me.</p>
<p>Q. to Wilkinson. What do you say to that?</p>
<p>Wilkinson. When I carried the saddle home, they insisted on my finding the man I bought it of, or they would prosecute me: then I shewed them where the man lived.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any money back again, from the prisoner?</p>
<p>Wilkinson. I had ten shillings back this day se'nnight, at night; then I bid him go home, and set a man to watch him, which way he went; I told him the first had been owned: the prisoner told me who this belonged to, and I carried it home.</p>

<p>Q. to A. Manlove. Did you smell at the prisoner's hands?</p>
<p>A. Manlove. I did; they did not smell of salmon; but I saw him drop the salmon, and I picked it up, and carried it back afterwards; he had it in his left hand.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner out of your sight 'till taken?</p>

I asked the prisoner if he had got his mistress's kettle, saying she had lost her kettle: said he, I live with a coppersmith, in Bishopsgate-street: he asked me when I should be at the Coach and Horses? he said he should be there in half an hour; and that he often carried kettles and things, 200 weight.

<p>Q. Was you before the justice, when he was examined?</p>
<p>West. I was. There he was asked whether he lived with a copper-smith? his answer was, he lived here and there, and every where; sometimes in one place, and sometimes in another.

Turner used to come to our house, at times; we suspected her; she was taken up, and she confessed she had taken them, and in what manner she had sold them; this was last Monday: she said the other prisoner took the things of her, as she gave them to her out at the window.</p>
<p>Mrs. Heath.

<p>Langham's Defence.</p>
<p>I met Murphy with these two bundles on his back; he asked me to carry them, which I did, half way up Rosemary-lane: then he took and carried them to Godsby's cellar; then we went and had a pint of beer together: the next morning, I went again to the cellar, when the things were all cut open, and some things gone out of the bundle; I do not know where they were stolen from. After that, I was taken upon Saltpetre-bank, and committed to prison: I could not find my own things, and there were these, so I took them instead of my own: they are not half the value of mine.</p>
<p>Young's Defence.</p>
<p>This young man wanted me to sell two or three of these things; I did not sell them; it was an acquaintance of his that sold them. When they took me up, I told them where the things were, as I went along with her; but she carried them, and I never took a halfpenny of the money.</p>

I mistrusted, by that, he had taken something: I pursued him, and he ran into a public-house; but before I got to the door, he came out again, and dropped the cheese.

<p>Gammon. This was about one o'clock in the day; we went together to the Coach and Horses there, and had two pots of beer, and bread and cheese, and gin; when we came back it was dark: they said, they knew of a place where they could get some handkerchiefs, and asked me to go along with them: I said, I would; we went down St. John's-street, and up the city, to the back of the Royal Exchange: then they shewed me the prosecutor's shop, and bid me push the window in.</p>
<p>Q. Was any body in the shop?</p>
<p>Gammon. There were people backwards, in the back parlour.</p>
<p>Q. Did you push the window in?</p>
<p>Gammon. I did; then Davis took out a piece of handkerchiefs, and gave it to Imer; he went with it, and stood just by, till we got the rest out.</p>
<p>Q. What quantity did you take?</p>
<p>Gammon. There were twenty-five silk and cotton ones, and eight silk ones: Imer stood at the corner of a gateway.</p>
<p>Q. Who took the last parcel out?</p>
<p>Gammon. Davis did, and gave them to me; I carried them to Imer.</p>

<p>King's Commission of the Peace, Oyer and Terminer, and Gaol-Delivery, held for the City of LONDON, &c.</p> </div1>
<p>[Continuation of the Trial of Davis and Imer.]</p>
<p>Q. WHAT time of the night was this?</p>
<p>Gammon. This was nearer seven o'clock than six.</p>
<p>Q. Was it dark, or light?</p>
<p>Gammon. It was dark, at that time, about five.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do, when you had got them out?</p>
<p>Gammon. Then we went over Moor-fields, till we came to the corner of Bunhill-row; there was a woman stood with fruit: Davis went and spoke to her; what he said to her I know not: then we went up a turning, and Davis went up a pair of stairs, into a room; and called us up after him: there was this butcher that has given evidence, and a little girl: he sent the girl down for that woman that was selling fruit. She came, and brought up a pot of purl: there we opened the handkerchiefs, and counted them, to see how many there were.</p>
<p>Q. How was the butcher employed?</p>
<p>Gammon. He was sitting by the fire: he saw us come in, and must see the handkerchiefs on the table, but he did not get up.</p>
<p>Q. How long did you stay there?</p>
<p>Gammon. About ten minutes: we wrapped the handkerchiefs up in an old one, and Imer said, he would go and sell them. He went to a place down Field-lane, while Davis and I stood up a turning; then he came back, and told us he could not sell them: then he said, he would go and leave them in Bleeding-hart-yard: we all three went there: he asked somebody for the key of Bett Field's room, and got it. Imer went up, and stood at the door: he said he would leave them there, and he knew of a place to get some more. We left them there, and went down as far as the end of Fleet-lane: then we said, as we had not sold them, it did not signify to get any more: so we went back, and bought a candle, and went all three into the room, where we divided them.</p>
<p>Q. How many had you a-piece?</p>
<p>Gammon. We had eleven each. As we were counting them on the table, she came in.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear of any being drop'd?</p>
<p>Gammon. No, I did not: I had all my eleven.</p>
<p>Q. from Imer. Did you ever see me carry any handkerchiefs up into that house?</p>
<p>Gammon. No: it was Davis that carried them up.</p>
<p>Q. from Imer. Had I the key, to unlock the door?</p>
<p>Gammon. No: Davis had the key, but you was with him.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176501160023"/>Davis's Defence.</p>
<p>Going along the lower end of Bread-street, I met this lad, Gammon, with a bundle: he said, So, where are you going? I said, to my mother's: he said, I found a bundle going a cross Moorfields; he laid them on the table: there were a parcel of handkerchiefs: he asked me to go and tell them; I said, I would have no concern with them; this was at Mr. Hill's daughter's house; he lives in Chiswell-street: we were going home, and he was going that way; the woman named Haines, lives below; Gammon was not acquainted at that house: I have seen Gammon two or three times at my grandfather's, but was not acquainted with him. The handkerchiefs he had were all dirty.</p>
<p>Imer's Defence.</p>
<p>I went on the other side of the water with Davis, to see his wife in the hospital: coming back, we met this lad; he said, he had found some handkerchiefs; we went to Mr. Hill's with them; t he bundle was put upon the table, and he opened them, to the best of my knowledge; he counted either eleven or thirteen: he wanted me to go and help to sell them: I said, I would have no concern with them.</p>

On the Monday following, a person came to me, and said, he believed his son was concerned in the robbery, and desired I would get him admitted an evidence.</p>
<p>Q. What is his name?</p>
<p>Parker. His name is Fish; the lad is in court. I took him to Justice Fielding's; there he gave his evidence, and was admitted an evidence to come here. There was another boy taken up, upon his evidence, whose name was Gammon, but nothing was found upon him. M'Donald was taken up, and the rest of the prisoners, but they denied knowing any thing of the robbery. (The eighteen handkerchiefs found at the Fountain, seven at Mrs. Perry's, and three at Mr. Burton's, produced and deposed to).

<p>Fish. After the glass was shov'd in, we took out some white cambrick spotted handkerchiefs; then we went to Mr. Parker's window, and took out an hundred and six handkerchiefs.</p>
<p>Q. Was nobody in the shop?</p>
<p>Fish. Mr. Parker's young man was in the shop, while we were taking them; he was packing up some linen. Then we went to Kitt M'Donald's room, in Black-boy alley, and counted them. (He takes up some red and white ones). I can swear these were some of them: there were some black silk ones.</p>
