<p>Q. Where did he lodge?</p>
<p>E. Arnold. On Saffron-hill: there we found two of the shirts lying on a chair. I saw the prisoner searched at a public house, and my handkerchief was found upon him. (Produced, and deposed to by a couple of darns on it.)</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Are there any marks on the shirts?</p>
<p>E. Arnold. There are not.</p>
<p>Q. Then what do you know them by?</p>
<p>E. Arnold. There are two damaged places on them; one I darned up myself, and that on the other shirt still continues a hole. She shewed the places on each.</p>

One of them said, Then we will go down there; I suppose, meaning some other house: then they turned round to me, and said, We will call again, and they went out.

<p>Mrs. Jones. I carried it in a china bowl. When they went in, there was a silver mug on the table, and a large silver table spoon in a closet, and two spoons in a tea-chest.

I went up stairs, and pulled off my cloaths, in order to go to bed, and the woman at the bar came up, and took away the things, except my shirt and trowsers. I followed her down, and told her husband his wife had taken my money and things; (my money, five guineas and fourteen shillings, was tied up in a knot in my sash, that I wear about my waist, on my shirt) he took and held a poker to my head, and threatned to knock me down; and bid me go out at the door, and not dispute with him. I said but little, fearing he would break my head: he bid me go along, and called me Black D - l. I staid till morning at the door within side, I having lost all the things mentioned in the indictment; (mentioning them by name). I went in the morning, after I got my jacket again, to

The prosecutor is a Lascar; he came to my house that morning, without shoes or stockings, and told me he had been robbed, as he has now mentioned: I went with him to the prisoner's house, and took Mr. Cottrell along with us, he being a beadle, but neither the prisoner nor his wife were at home. We went to the public-houses to look for them, and was informed the man was at the Ship, in Well-street: we found him behind the bar, drinking a pint of purl; the prosecutor said he was the man. While we were talking with him, in came his wife; then the Lascar said, that is the woman: we took them away; but going along, they talked Irish together; so I took one, and Mr. Cottrell the other, to prevent their talking. We took them to the Justice in Whitechapel: before they were ready to examine them, the woman took this sash (which the Lascar calls his silk purse; it ties round him, and in which he ties up his money) she took it from under her arm, and was going to drop it, but a man took it out of her hand, and delivered it to me. (Produced and deposed to by the prosecutor.) When before the Justice, I opened it, and there were in it Two Guineas, a Rupee, and one Firnam: the woman was searched, and in her pocket was found Thirteen Shillings and Four-pence Half-penny, and a white purse. (The purse produced and deposed to by the prosecutor).</p>

<p>Humphry Jackson. I keep a chymist's shop in East Smithfield. On the Friday there was a bill thrown into my shop, giving an account, that a large quantity of aloes had been stolen from on board a ship, Captain Hall, master. I told my man, if any body brought any, to let me know. Spearing and Bourn came on the Saturday evening after; one of them took a gourd of aloes from under his coat, and asked me to buy it: I asked how much he asked for it? he said, two shillings a pound. I said, it was not worth my while to buy that alone, (this was to see if they had any more): he said, he came from on board a ship at Woolwich, and he had more. I agreed for the aloes at 20 d. per pound: on paying him the money, I said, I was afraid he would not let me have the remaining quantity, unless he would leave some money in my hands till he brought the others. I got him to leave two shillings; I think it came to fifteen shillings. As soon as they were gone, I sent my man to Captain Hall, in Burr-street, desiring him to come up; he came accordingly; I told him what I had done, and that the men were to come on the Monday following with the remainder of the aloes, or for their money; and said, if this was any part of his, he might take his measures accordingly: but before he came, Mr. Jebb came and told me, that two men were taken up upon the key, and carried before my Lord Mayor, and had given information, that they had sold a gourd to me. I went to my Lord Mayor, and gave the same account as I have now.</p>
<p>Bourn's Defence.</p>
<p>I was walking along the key; Spearing gave me that gourd, and desired I would take it for him; I took it, and Burgin took it from me, and carried it away. Spearing is a porter, and works there.</p>
<p>Burgin's Defence.</p>
<p>I was on the key, and met Spearing: he is a ticket-porter: he said, Take this stuff, it belongs to me. I took it: they told me, they sold it for fifteen shillings, and the doctor stopped two shillings till they brought the remainder.</p>
<p>Spearing's Defence.</p>
<p>I never saw Bourn but once in my life before. Burgin was my ship-mate; I was coming over Tower-hill; he said, How do you do, ship-mate? We went and got a pot of beer; he said he had got a thing; Do you know any apothecary's shop? I said, There is one just by: then he said, he had five more at Woolwich on board a ship.</p>

He had a bit of a scull to bring her to shore; I said, Friend, how did you get this rope? he said he came from one Mr. Bray, above bridge. I said, You never could bring this boat through bridge with this piece of a scull; you are no waterman. Yes, said he, I am; and what is that to you, whether I am or not? I asked him where he was going? he first said, to a little man in a blue coat, who lived somewhere thereabout, and keeps boats. I mentioned several names, at last I mentioned Joyner; he said he believed that was the man. I stopped him, and took him to the watch-house, and staid with him till morning: he told me there, that a man gave him six-pence to bring her there; then he said he brought her from below bridge. I asked him where the six-pence was? he said he had spent it. He was taken before the bench of justices, where he said one Dangerfield, a fisherman, gave him the six-pence at Billingsgate. I went, by the justices order, to the house he described, but no such man was to be found. He was ordered to prison; after that, a captain of a brig came to me, and said he believed the rope was his property; he failed the next morning, and left word before he failed, that he would take his oath it was his property.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176502270010"/> saw him put a pair under his coat: I stood a little longer to satisfy my curiosity, and after that I thought I saw them lying on the counter: my boy turning round to look for some stockings, then I saw the prisoner put a pair under his coat; then I went backwards, and called Mr. Pilkington from the kitchen, and told him there was a person in the shop stealing stockings, and desired he would come up, and help to secure him. He came, and placed himself on the stairs; then we saw the prisoner put another pair under his coat; then the boy took him to the other side of the shop, and shewed him some other stockings: he said they would not do; then he told the boy, he would call another time, and went out of the shop. Then Mr. Pilkington went and brought him back; the prisoner took a pair of stockings from under his coat, and begged I would forgive a poor young creature, who never did such a thing before. When Mr. Pilkington went for a constable, my maid said she saw the prisoner fling another pair of stockings behind the counter: I did not see him do it, but there I found them. When Mr. Pilkington came back, the prisoner took a knife, and attempted to cut his own throat; he did cut the skin, and cut himself a little on the belly. After he was in custody, he took out nine shillings, and offered to pay for the stockings; (the stockings produced,) one pair are my own make; here is my name upon them; the other have my shop mark upon them; they are both made of worsted.</p>

Mr. Greenhill called me up, as he has mentioned: I stood and saw the prisoner put a pair of stockings under his coat, and after he went out, I went after him. There are three steps at the door; he was got upon the last step. I tapped him on the shoulder, and desired him to come back again: he did, and immediately took the stockings from under his coat, and flung them on the counter, and went on his knees, and begged for mercy. I went out for a constable, and, when I came back again, the prisoner was at the upper end of the shop, cutting his own throat with a knife.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I have not been two months in London; I came from Chester with letters of recommendation to get into a counting-house, to Mr. Carwin, in Lime-street, and Mr. Power, a merchant; the latter is gone to the south of France for his health, so that I was obliged to rely upon Mr. Carwin, who did as much as possible, but could not succeed. Then I wrote down to Chester, and my friends sent me up five guineas, to bear my expences home, and pay what I owed here. I sent my things to the Swan and two necks in Lad-lane, to go down by the waggon, and intended to go down by the coach home again. I had been in St. James's-park: coming back, my stockings not being very good, I went into this shop to buy a pair: the young lad shewed me five or six pair: I fancied one pair in particular, and asked him the price; he said 4 s. 6 d. I bid him 3 s. 6 d. he said he could not take it: I recollected they were a pretty good pair; I offered him four shillings, and took them, and folded them up, in order to pay for them. I went to the door to look at them, and was coming in again, when the young man came and tapped me on the shoulder, and said I had stole a pair of stockings: I said I had not stole them, and threw down the money on the counter in order to pay for them. They searched me, and found nothing but my pocket-book and my own things about me.</p>
<p>Q. Where is Mr. Carwin? Is he here?</p>
<p>Prisoner. No, he is not; I was ashamed to write to him, fearing he would write down to my friends, and they would never look upon me.</p>

<p>Q. Is that wash-house any part of the dwelling-house?</p>
<p>Lockley. It joins to it; the side of the house is the end of the wash-house. In the morning, after my husband was gone down, we had word sent us from the watch-house, that they had a man there with some of our linen; this was about six o'clock. I went down stairs, and found a ladder
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176502270011"/> was standing against the tyles, by the door; a parcel of tyles were taken off, and a hole made from thence down through the cieling, big enough for a man to get down, and the door was left open, where I suppose the thief went out; the door opens into the yard: there is no chamber over the wash-house. I went to the watch-house about seven; there I saw my linen and things mentioned in the indictment, and the prisoner was confined there. (The goods produced and deposed to).</p>
<p>Q. Who did the ladder belong to?</p>
<p>Lockley. That was my landlord's property; he is a master bricklayer; that generally when out of use, was in the yard.</p>

Between the hours of two and three on Saturday morning, the 19th of January, I was standing behind a board in a dark corner, at the King George, in Portland-street, which is about half a mile from this woman's house. I heard a foot coming along pretty briskly from out of the fields: when he came opposite me, I pushed out; I had my lanthorn under my coat; I opened my coat and drew it out: I said, halloo, my friend, what have you got here? it was the prisoner: he said, nothing. I said it is something: then he said it is nothing to you; he had a great bundle under his coat: I said what is it? he said, it is nothing but a little bundle of wet linen, which he was going to carry home to his wife to dry and iron: I said, where does your wife lodge? he said, at the Hampshire-hog, St. Giles's, or by it. I said, is your wife a laundress? he said, yes. I said, where did you bring it from? he said, from a gentlewoman, at the Shepherd and Flock, at Marybone. I said, does your wife iron for a gentlewoman there? he said, yes. I said, it is a wrong time of night; how came you to carry it at this time of night? he said, he had been drinking with two or three of his countrymen, and they had been tossing up, and that made him later than he should have been: he said he was a very honest man, and I might go home with him to his wife, and she would tell me the same. I said, I had no business to go with him: he said, he had told who he had brought it from, and where he was going, and I had no business to stop him; and said, I did not know my business: he kept pushing forwards, but I took hold of him, and said he should go with me to the watch-house; he struggled to get away, and my dog came and jumped up towards his face; then he submitted. I got him to the watch-house about ten minutes before three. Going to call the hour three, I met a young man going to Marybone; I sent word by him to the Shepherd and Flock, that if any body there had sent any linnen out, or lost any, to come directly to me. When I had done calling the hour six, the woman and her husband came and owned the things, the same as laid in the indictment; it was all wrapped in one of the table-cloths. We took him before the justice; there he said, another was concerned with him, who had handed it out of the wash-house to him; I have forgot that man's name, but he was brought there. Then he sent for his landlady, who made it appear, he was in bed and asleep at the time. So he was discharged.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I have no wife in England; I work'd for Mr. Foster, in Tyburn-road; he pays his men at the Rose and Crown: I happened to come in there for a slice of bread and cheese, and a pint of beer; two or three of the workmen came in, and we staid and drank there till it was late: I was after going home every minute, and asked what o'clock it was? they said it was ten o'clock, and another time said it was eleven; they kept me till twelve. When I left the house, I was going home, but a man met me, and asked me if I would go with him and earn six-pence? I said, yes, and thank him too: I said, where? he said to Marybone: he brought me to a house, and kept me till we had five or six pints of beer, but where this Neal parted with me, I cannot tell, or whether he was the man that gave me the linen, I cannot tell: that man brought me to Marybone, brought a bundle to me, and put it on my head, and some things in my pocket; he bid me carry them to Hanover-square;

I looked about, and did not see the man; I was surprized: what I said I cannot tell: I knew nothing of what pass'd till I found myself in the watch-house the next morning: the watchman, when he was bringing me to the watch-house, said he would swear my life away, in order to get the reward; he told me I was a gone man. I have two small orphans, and a helpless father, in Dublin: I hope the honourable court will consider my innocence in this affair: I am a bricklayer's labourer.</p>

I asked the price of the best of them; he said 25 s. at last he would have sold it me for 18 s. then he said, he wished he could sell them all together: I said, what will be the price, to take them all together; he said 15 s. apiece: I said, I did not know but I could help him to a chap, if he would sell them worth the money, then he came to thirteen shillings apiece: then I went on to the Three Goat's-heads, and said to Mr. Johnson, here is a man coming along with a parcel of hogs; I am satisfied he has stole them, for they are worth as much more as he asks for them; so he let the man put them into his stable: I went on, and when I came to the Goat's-head again, the owner of the hogs came: when the prisoner saw him, he begged for mercy.</p>

I said to London: he said, I shall be too late; if you'll be so good as to drive these hogs to town for me, I'll give you a couple of shillings: he desired me to go over Kew-bridge, and so to Vaux-hall; and, if I could light of a chap, to sell them, as money would be of more service to him than the hogs.

<p>Smith. I heard Edwards say she would give the man his money again; but one Foliot had got the money, and said she might go and be d - d, he would not part with it.</p>

In the mean time came in the man at the bar, and asked for a handkerchief; I left them, and
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176502270015"/> went up farther in the shop. to serve him with a blue one, prize 14 d. he threw me 13 d. and ask'd if that would do: I said no, then he gave me the other penny, and went away: then I went to the women; they would give me no more than 3 s. 6 d. as they were going out of the door, I said they might have them for 4 s. 3 d. they would not give it me, and went away; and in ten minutes time they returned: my handkerchiefs were all there, I can safely swear, before they came in; they said, shall we have this silk handkerchief? I said, if they liked it at the price; the old woman said 4 s. is too much: I said it is 4 s. 3 d. the young woman said, it is so; they stood just by the piles of handkerchiefs, which were in four rows: I stood facing them: the old woman gave me 5 s. I put up the handkerchief, and I returned her 9 d. and away they went. In about ten minutes after they were gone, I took the loose handkerchiefs up, and found the board was cleared of one row, about a yard in length; I could not tell what I had miss'd, till the next morning: the first pattern I miss'd was a piece of fine blue borders, twenty-one handkerchiefs; I miss'd about a dozen or fifteen of red and white, then three parcels of another pattern of red and white, of what we call spoiled work, they were not cleared at the printers. I lost more, that I cannot describe, having such a great quantity. I went to Mr. Fielding, for his advice: he advised me to advertise; I did, and printed some hand-bills, and sent them to the pawnbrokers. One of my men told me, that Field-lane was a great place for handkerchiefs, and such things: I sent both my men there, they saw two parcels at Mrs. Taylor's, and bought each of them a handkerchief. The gentlewoman having seen the advertisement, went to Mr. Fielding with the handkerchiefs: when I came there, to get a search-warrant, she was there, and said she bought them of the three prisoners at the bar; this was on the Saturday morning, (several pieces of handkerchiefs produced in court, some good and some spoiled work. He takes up two parcels) I am sure these two parcels were in my shop, when the prisoners were in my shop; they are my property. Mrs. Taylor told us where the prisoners lodged, by Hicks's-hall. When we came there, they had quitted their lodging about a fortnight before, in the night: Mrs. Taylor told us they had sold some more to a person in Field-lane, and were to come there again in the evening; she got a constable, and took the two women, the man got away; then she sent for me: I went to them; they had them at a public house going down Holbourn-hill; I knew them to be the same people. I charged them with having robbed me; they pretended they knew nothing of me; they were sent to the counter: the man going to the constable's house, to ask what they had done with his mother and wife, the constable secured him, and took him to the counter, and on Monday I had them all three before my Lord Mayor, and swore to my goods. I have not found any more of them. Here are twenty handkerchiefs of what we call spoiled work, and I have the other half-piece at home, belonging to one of these. The man told my Lord Mayor, that he lodged at the house of one Magennis, the George, in Broad St. Giles's; but when he came there, we found he did not, nor ever did.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you say the women stood?</p>
<p>Greenfield. They stood just by the door, coming in.</p>
<p>Q. Whereabouts is your house?</p>
<p>Greenfield. At the corner of Mitre-court, Fleetstreet.</p>
<p>Q. How long had the women been in, before the man came in?</p>
<p>Greenfield. He came in about three or four minutes after them.</p>
<p>Q. Was he at the same counter they were at, or the other?</p>
<p>Greenfield. He was at the same counter, but farther up.</p>
<p>Q. Did he abide long in your shop?</p>
<p>Greenfield. He did not stay long; but it is possible the women might give him some of the handkerchiefs as he came out.</p>
<p>Q. Is it possible he could conceal them from your seeing them?</p>
<p>Greenfield. They will lie in a little room; I have pieces of handkerchiefs that cost ten guineas a-piece; you may put two pieces of them in one pocket.</p>
<p>Q. You say the women went out, and returned again; had you missed any before they came in again?</p>
<p>Greenfield. No, I had not; they were covered with light goods.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss the goods before or after the the gentlewoman who was in your shop went away?</p>
<p>Greenfield. I missed them after she went away.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss your goods before Mr. Pelteroe went away?</p>
<p>Greenfield. No, I did not, till after he was gone.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176502270016"/>Q. Did you observe the women, when they went away?</p>
<p>Greenfield. No, I did not; neither did I observe which way they went: I could not see the bottom part of them for the piles of handkerchiefs that were between us.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think they could be taken away in their aprons?</p>
<p>Greenfield. I think one apron could take away three times as much.</p>
<p>Q. How do you imagine they could take away such a quantity?</p>
<p>Greenfield. As they lay piled up, one hand could sweep them all into an apron; I could see their faces, but could not see their hands; the piles of handkerchiefs were breast-high.</p>

I live in Field-lane, and sell linen handkerchiefs, cheques, and old cloaths; I deal with hawkers; I have dealt with the prisoners at the bar ever since the 13th or 14th of December last: they came sometimes with wallets, and sometimes bundles under their arms: they brought large quantities of goods; they usually brought silk and cotton: I never saw them have linen, till these two parcels I bought on the 7th of February.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day did they come to your shop?</p>
<p>Taylor. It might be about five in the afternoon. They were all three in company; they asked me as usual if I wanted any thing; they said they had some very handsome blue-bordered ones; (the prosecutor produced a handkerchief with a blue border) they were like this; but I said they were too fine for me.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. Such I missed.</p>
<p>Taylor. I bought a dozen of handkerchiefs, fancy-grounds, or mosaic; my man came in, and bid them money for some damaged ones; they would not take his money; they went away, and called the next day, and asked if he would advance any thing more; I said I did not care whether I had them or not. Then they took the money he bid, and I paid them: I gave them 18 s. a dozen for the first parcel, and 14 s. a dozen for the damaged ones, and hung some of them out in the street for sale. The prosecutor's two men came and bought each a handkerchief; our people said they behaved very comically: I was then afraid there was something amiss, and my man read of such goods being stolen in the Advertiser. I went to Mr. Fielding's with them; the gentleman came there, and said he believed they were his goods, (these are the same here produced); then I was ordered to take up the people that brought them. I had taken a receipt of them the first time I bought of them, and at that time I asked who they served besides me: the man named four shops; we enquired at the places where they said they lived, and Mr. Fielding's man and my man went to the places where they had lived. I was afterwards going up Holbourn, I met the two women above Turnstile; I made a full stop; I thought they seemed to shun me: I asked them if they had any more handkerchiefs to sell; they said they had none with them: said I, Can you go home and fetch some, and the wife that is big with child may stay at my house the while. Then they went faster, and I could not follow them so fast: I called out for people to stop them; they ran up a place, and were taken, and brought to my house, and charged with a constable. Two or three hours after that the man came to another house in the lane, and said Mrs. Taylor had taken up his wife, and he would ruin her. When he came to my house, and asked where his wife was, I said, she is in one of the counters; my man went with him to the constable, and the constable took him in custody, and carried him to his wife: then we sent to Mr. Greenfield to come; he came, and said they were the same persons.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. What did you take the prisoners to be?</p>
<p>Taylor. I took them to be hawkers: sometimes the man had a pack over his shoulders, and sometimes under his arm.</p>
<p>Q. Were they all together when you bought the things?</p>
<p>Taylor. They were.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any thing particular in these handkerchiefs?</p>
<p>Taylor. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any licence they had?</p>
<p>Taylor. No, I never did: they always told me they dealt in Spital-fields.</p>

<p>Hatton. On Friday the 8th of this instant February, when it was just dusk: the three prisoners were frequently at my house, with goods under their arms, as Hawkers; they had great quantities sometimes, of all manner of sorts.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever see any licence they had?</p>
<p>Hatton. No, I never asked them to see it; the man said he was a Spitalfields-weaver, and lived at the Golden-hall there: these three handkerchiefs, here produced, are part of the piece I bought of them.</p>

I took down some handkerchiefs from another place to shew him; he took and pulled them towards the window, and covered the silk handkerchiefs with them: upon examining the selvage, my mistress happened to be looking at him: Madam, said he, will they wash well? yes, said she. He asked the price; I said 15 d. he said they were too dear. I said, I had some cheaper; he said he would look at them, he did, and said they would not do at all. At last, he bough t one of the other, at 14 d. when he was gone, I went to put the handkerchiefs up; there was no more than seven dozen; this was not half an hour after I had counted them before: we advertised them, and described the man at the bar.</p>

<p>Hatton. One passed for his wife, and the other for his brother's wife.</p>

I suspected the prisoner, by the character I heard of him, and his manner of living: I took him on the 6th of this instant, at a breeches-makers, at the Seven-dials; I found one pair of my silver buckles upon him; there was a woman and a man with him, in his room, which was up one pair of stairs backwards. I found also eleven guineas and a half, a 36 s. piece, a shilling, and three crown pieces; two of King Charles's, and a French crown: the two English ones I had marked with a scratch on the King's head; one was marked about four years ago, and the other about fourteen months: I saw them taken out of his left side breeches pocket.

<p>Compton. They were my wife's money, and she fancied them, and I marked them, fearing they should be lost.

The prisoner said, before Justice Welch, that man was not concerned with him in the robbery, but that he gave him the buckles.

We had a warrant to apprehend his body, and another to search; but the latter being made general, and not confined to any house. I made application to Justice Welch, for a warrant to search his lodgings. I sent two officers, Langridge and Sowery; they returned, and said, there was nothing there. I applied to the man where the prisoner lodged, told him our suspicion, and asked his assistance. He promised all in his power. I got a grant for the two constables to sit up in his shop all night, to wait his coming in; and the next morning, being Wednesday the 6th, between eight and ten, the officers informed me the prisoner was within the house. I went with them up stairs, and rushed into the room, and took him. Seeing a man and woman with him, I desired the prosecutor to come forward, and give charge, which he did. While one of the constables was hand-cussing him, I searched him; in his breeches pocket I found eleven guineas and a half in gold, and a 36 s. piece. When I pulled the money out, I said, Compton, I fancy you cannot charge your memory with any of these: he said he knew there was a 36 s. piece among his money. I put that money in my pocket, and searched his waistcoat pockets; there I found these three crown pieces, one was a French crown, and a pair of silver buckles: Mr. Compton immediately said, I'll swear they are my property. I asked the prisoner how he could be so wicked to rob the poor man of all this? his answer was, I did do it, and I cannot deny it. I asked him if he had got any accomplice, and begged he would discover them for the good of the public; he said, he had none, for he did the robbery, and no man else. I asked him what he had done with the rest of the money? he said he had disposed of it: I asked him if it was anywhere where it might be recovered; he said, No, he had paid some debts with part of it, and he had fetched some cloaths out of pawn, and he had paid a chandler's shop bill, and his rent. I asked him to tell me where the 10 l. bank note was, which then I had not found; he said it was disposed of. I pray'd him to tell me; he would not discover it. I ordered the constable to search the woman and the room; the prisoner immediately said it was not in the room. I asked him again to tell me where it was, and said I would endeavour to prevail with the prosecutor to allow him something to keep him while in gaol; he said, then if I would give him a guinea and a half to keep him while in gaol, he would tell me where it was. I told him I would, when the note was produced: he would not trust me; I gave him a guinea and a half, and he told me to search a private place in his breeches; we did, and there it was found. We hand-cuffed the other man that was with him, and took them both to Justice Welch. The woman was searched by a constable afterwards, and brought likewise. When we came there, the Justice asked the prisoner what he had got to say for himself; he confessed the same to the Justice as I have here related.</p>

<p>Q. WAS any thing said, as to the manner of the robbery?</p>
<p>Clay. I asked him how he could go to do such a daring robbery, at that time of the night, alone? he said, he did do it, but was in great confusion. Mr. Welch permitted me to ask him, where the other pair of buckles were: he said, he had hid them in Marybone-fields: I said, if I took him there, could he find the place? he said, no: immediately upon that, the young man, who was hand-cuffed, said, I have them in my pocket. Then Mr. Welch said to him, You have been concerned with this man: the prisoner generously cleared him, and said he gave him the buckles, as he sat in the bed, and that he knew nothing how he came by them: there was a chissel found on or by the prosecutor's bureau. Mr. Welch permitted me to ask the prisoner what sort of a handle the chissel had; whether made of wood, or what kind of one it was? he answered, it had no wood handle to it; he said it was an iron chissel, with a square sort of a socket, (the chissel produced, and corresponded with the account the prisoner gave). I saw the window where the ladder was set; he might get from the ladder upon some tyles, and open the window: I found a pane of glass lying on the tyles, on the shed.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>They asked me, if I knew any thing of the breaking open this house, or if I knew the back-door? I said I knew the back-door; he said, I suppose you know my back-window: I said, I believed I had seen it: he asked me if I took the ladder up, after I had opened the window? I said I had not done it, and that I knew nothing of its he asked me what sort of a chissel it was that I broke open the drawers with: I said I did not know: he said, has it a wooden handle? I said, it might be without a handle, for what I know I know nothing at all of the fact, any farther than what they forced me to say: I believe I have sufficient evidence to prove I was at the sign of the Crown, in West-Smithfield, at the time they say the window was broke. I parted with a man at Upper. Turnstile, Holbourn, and called at my wife's

<p>Q. What day was that?</p>
<p>Edwards. It was on a Monday; I have forgot the day of the month: he was at my house that night, between the hours of seven and nine.</p>
<p>Q. How long is it ago?</p>
<p>Edwards. As near as I can guess, it is about three weeks ago: I heard of the robbery on the Wednesday, and know it was on that night:

After that, seeing the prisoner in all those fine things, gave me a great suspicion she was a thief: then I and my wife took her to my bed-chamber, and examined her; she said a woman, named Kenrick, who lodged in my house, broke my chest of drawers, and took out fifteen shillings, and gave them to her, and took some money herself: I carried them both before Justice Welch; there she swore the same, before the Justice, against the old woman: the old woman denied it: the justice said to the prisoner, she was a bad girl, and bid her go home, and deliver the things to her master.</p>

The justice asked her, if she knew any thing against the old woman? she said no, nothing at all: she had before sworn the old woman gave her the gown and buckles; the other was acquitted, and she sent to New-Prison.</p>

<p>Tyner.

<p>Tyner. I did: on the next day, being Wednesday, I was riding after him for Essex, and heard of him in Whitechapel, and found him in the custody of a constable, who had taken him on suspicion.</p>

I am; that day the boy at the bar, and two men, came in at the White Hart, and called for six-pennyworth of warm brandy and water; when they had drank it, the boy pulled out this bladder, and laid down a 5 s. 3 d. piece, and desired change for it; they then ordered another six-pennyworth: one of the men said, landlady, bring us a glass, that we may all drink alike: I said, you don't use the boy well, to make him drink as you do; it will be time enough for that ten years hence: I asked that man if the boy was any relation of his: the man said he was the boy's uncle: I asked the boy if he was his uncle; the boy said no, and winked, as though he wanted to speak with me; I went out of the box I was sitting in, and took him into the next room; I asked him how he came by that money, and how much he had got: he said he had lived three years in service, in Essex, and that he had three pounds a year at each place: I asked him who found him cloaths all the time; he said his father: I asked him to let me look at the money, what he had left, there was 2 l. 17 s. 9 d. as he was putting the money in his pocket I saw a seal hang down; I asked him if he had a watch? he said,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176502270025"/> Yes, He said, he had been changing watches with one of the two men: then we went into the room again, where the two men were sitting. I I asked the man, (not him that said he was the boy's uncle) if he had changed watches with the boy? he said, What was that to me; but when he found I was a peace officer, he said he had: I asked him if he gave the boy any thing in exchange? the boy said he had given the man two guineas and a crown. It was an old watch that belonged to the man. I desired him to return the money and take his watch; he refused it: then I said I should take him before a magistrate, and let him decide it. I then took them all three before Justice Darling: they had made the boy drunk: the boy then told me he had an uncle at Hyde-Park Corner, and after that he said he had not: the Justice ordered him to give the money to me, and the man to refund the two guineas and a crown. After they had been examined, the Justice desired me to go and see whether he had an uncle at Hyde-Park Corner, or whether he had bought that watch, as he had said. I begg'd the favour of his worship (the next day being execution day at Tyburn, and I was to attend) that he would let the headborough go with the boy: so Mr. Galatley went.</p>

<p>I did take the money.</p>

<p>Wright. The Alley is paved with stones; there is a public house at the corner, at a gateway, and his house is about forty yards distant; there are high steps before you come to it.</p>
<p>Q. to Brock. Does he describe it right?</p>
<p>Brock. Yes. That alehouse is the sign of the Golden Anchor; there is such a place as he has mentioned, where they go in under a gateway, and there are steps before we come to Taylor's house; I have seen Taylor go into the house; I have served his wife with coals.</p>

<p>Q. Was it before, or since Christmas?</p>
<p>Cook. Since Christmas, I believe.</p>
<p>Q. What day of the week?</p>
<p>Cook. I don't know. We got over several yards, and the door was upon the latch we went in at. There stood a pot with some water in it; I took and handed that to Taylor, over the pales; it was a larger pot than either of these. I had that at home till I was taken up, and my house-keeper says she sold it to by victuals for the children. That was burst at the sides.</p>
<p>Q. Where abouts did you find that?</p>
<p>Cock. It stood on the left hand of the back-door, by the side of the house, some distance from the house: Perry was in the next garden, and Taylor came over to me: he pulled out his pistol and gave it to me, while he handed the pots and things over the pales; he and I went in, and struck a light; he always carried a tinder-box, candle, and dark lanthorn.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176502270027"/>Q. Where did you take the pottage-pots from?</p>
<p>Cook. They were standing edge-ways on a form, and the other things on the mantle-piece: the plates were on a shelf: we took six plates, five candlesticks, four pottage-pots and covers, two sauce-pans, a pestle and mortar, a pair of scales, and a white apron that lay upon a chest of drawers, in the kitchen: after we had handed them to Perry, we took them among us, some in our pockets, and some in bags that we had, and carried them to Perry's house; we got there between two and three o'clock; the prisoners lived all together.</p>
<p>Q. What share did you carry?</p>
<p>Cook. I carried the plates, the large pot and candlesticks: we went first into a field with some fowls we had stole and left there: a few days after we shared them: after that Taylor gave me two sauce-pans for one of my pots. Ball was taken up first, and he impeached me, and I was taken up about a month after the things were shared: he knew nothing of this fact, only we told him of it; Sparrow was not with us in this: I lived about 200 yards from Perry's house, in St. Catherine's Lane.</p>
<p>The prosecutrix was called in, who was sent out of court while Cook gave his evidence.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutrix. Had you any thing taken from the yard?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. Yes; a larger pot than any of these was standing in the yard, with rain-water in it; that I never saw since.</p>
<p>Q. how near the back-door did it stand?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. About six or seven yards; it was burst, and ran out at the ears.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lose any linen?</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. I lost an apron out of the kitchen, but I did not put that in the indictment.</p>
<p>Cook. I was at the Rising-Sun at Hackney, about five weeks ago; Perry, Taylor, and Ball were there: Ball was taken; they said he would impeach them, and they said they would go away.</p>
<p>Q. Where did Ball live?</p>
<p>Cook. He lodged in Sun-Yard, within about a hundred yards of Perry's house.</p>

No, I never did; there were three or four large dogs about him; he was a long time lame: he said it was between the calf and heel that the dog bit him: when we had got the turkeys we went across the fields, into the road: we took them on the other side the water, and sold them the day after: he was so lame he could not stir out of his room.</p>
<p>Q. Where did he live?</p>
<p>Ball. He lodged at
