About two or three hours after Lovell came in again with a bad shilling, and said he had it of me, and insisted on having it changed; I knowing he never had that from me, would not change it; there was a gentleman by, who said to him, Where is that watch you had this morning? here it is, said the gypsey; the gentleman said he would give him a tankard of beer to tell him the number of it; he told us quite a different number. Then the gentleman desired I would stop the watch and man, till he got a constable; then we took him before Justice Dawson; the boy at the bar came after us, to prove the gypsey came honestly by it; but the boy soon confessed the gypsey encouraged him to steal it from his master, a butcher in Holbourn; he also confessed he had robbed his master of another watch and a pair of buckles: the gypsey pretended this watch was a gold one, but it is only silver gilt.</p>

<p>I came from Portsmouth on the Sunday morning, and on the Tuesday night this boy came to the house where I lay, and said his master had turned him away, because he staid a little too late; there were two other boys; they sent half a crown out, and got a pint of gin: I was fast asleep when he brought these things. The next morning I was going over to the Borough, to fetch some things cut that I had pawned; this boy and two others came over the water after me; he brought into a house, where I was, a breast of mutton and a quartern loaf, and asked me if I could sell him a pair of buckles: I went and sold them for 7 s. then he gave me the watch to dispose of for him; I went and asked 3 l. for it; the gentleman gave me 25 s. for it: the boy said he took the things from his father, and was going to Portsmouth.</p>

We went before a magistrate; Talbot there produced it: Magin said Talbot had
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176504170009"/> knocked him down in order to run away with the watch; (his forehead was swelled) he said Talbot told him he should not have a needle's worth of the watch; and as he was running away with it, they overtook him, and stopped him; and then Talbot laid hold of them, and said he would carry the watch to an officer, and upon that he went to our beadle: this was said before Talbot's face: I said, Talbot, are not you ashamed of these things? there has been people enough hanged out of your house already; you ought to know better. The lads told the Justice where, and how they got the watch; and also of a great many more robberies they had done: they said another lad, in company with them, entered into a chandler's shop facing the Hermitage Stairs, betwixt 2 butcher's shop and some other, and when he came out he gave them the watch to sell. By this description I found the prosecutor; Magin said they carried it to a one-armed man named Johnson, who said he would not sell it for them, but would buy it; and that Talbot had got a pension ticket of Johnson's, and if Talbot would let him have the money, he would give them 30 s. then they went to carry it to Talbot, and he took it, and was going to run away with it, after he had knocked the boy down. (The watch produced and deposed to.)</p>

On a Saturday morning, I cannot tell the exact day, I had four or five guineas, a half guinea, and four or five quarter guineas in my pocket apron, which I had told over the night before, and laid under my head: after I brought it down I laid it on the dresser, and sent the prisoner to bring me a clean pocket apron; she very officiously said, she would take the money out of the soul one and put it in the clean one: I thought she had done it: I then looked upon her to be honest. I took and tied it up, with my halfpence in it, and took it roll'd up in my arms to the market. I went to turn my money out, and found but four or five small pieces of gold, called quarter-guineas, among my halfpence; all the rest was gone: I immediately ran home to the maid, and asked her what she had done with the gold; she said she had not meddled with it: My husband coming down stairs that minute, I was afraid to let him know of it. I ran away to market, without saying any thing to him: I told some of our servants of it; and said, if my husband should come to know of it, I would say I had found it again. I never searched the prisoner, nor made much to do about it; but used to say, it is strange the money should be gone so. I, about a month after, told the prisoner she had got it: she said, You lie. She was taken up about a month after for robbing my husband's till; then I spoke of this to my husband.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I am very innocent of it. The morning my mistress lost her money, she took her pocket upon her arm, with the money in it, and went to the shop. She sent the boy to look about the street for it, to see whether she had not dropped it: she came home, and said her husband had taken four guineas out of her pocket; this is not the first time he has served me so; he is an old rogue. Then she said Jemmy or Sam must have it; then she went to a neighbour, and asked if they had seen it in the streets.</p>

<p>Q. Did he know how you came by them?</p>
<p>Lee. No, then he did not: we came home again that night, and Murphy and I sat up in Fox and Knot court, to black the pots and saucepans, to make them look as if they had been used. The next morning, we took the rest of the goods in a hamper and a bag, to Mrs. Innis's, and Courtney and his wife went about to some brokers, to see if they could sell part of them. Courtney brought a broker, and when he came, Courtney bid me go out at the door: after that, they said they sold the two beds for 12 s. after that his wife said it was but 9 s. Courtney carried one of the beds away to the broker's; Muckleroy was waiting for us at the Wheelwright's arms; there we went and divided the 12 s. Murphy told me that Courtney's wife had pawned one of the small pots, for 4 s. so we divided 16 s. we had liquor and victuals, which we all paid part towards. Then we went to Mrs. Innis's, in order to take the rest of the things to Mr. Kelley's house: Courtney said, nothing should be touched, saying, he had as much right to them as we had, and he struck Muckleroy. We came away, and Murphy went back to lie there: that same evening. Muckleroy and I carried the other goods to Kelley's: he looked at them, but did not like them: he lent us a couple of shillings, and said money was short with him, but if we came in the morning, we should have the money. In the morning, Muckleroy, Murphy, and I went there; he put us off till night, but we did not go that night. On the Saturday night, Murphy and I left Muckleroy's lodgings, and went to Mr. Kelley's, to take the goods away, or be paid: Murphy would go no farther than London-bridge and said he would wait there till I came. If I had brought the goods back, we were to carry them into Kent-street, but Mr. Kelley stopped me.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176504170014"/> Then I told them where to find Murphy, and went with them to London-bridge, where they took him, and carried him and I before Justice Welch. Mr. Welch granted a warrant to search Mrs. Innis's house, but they had taken care, to that none of the goods we left there could be found.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutor. Is this warehouse part of your dwelling-house?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. It joins to it.</p>
<p>Q. Is there a door goes out of your house into the warehouse, without going out into the street?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No, there is not. There is only a door that opens into the street.</p>
<p>Muckleroy's Defence.</p>
<p>I have my landlord here, to prove I was at home that night: this is all done to swear away my life, for the reward.</p>
<p>For Muckleroy.</p>

<p>Macartney. I know he was in my house that night, and the next morning about 9 o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. What night was that?</p>
<p>Macartney. I hear it was about the 24th of March.</p>
<p>Q. What day of the week was it?</p>
<p>Macartney. I cannot say rightly what day of the week; it was on a Saturday night I think, but am not very sure: I saw him go to bed, and he lay in bed till 11 o'clock on the Sunday.</p>
<p>Q. What time did he go to bed?</p>
<p>Macartney. Between 10 and 11; my wife and I lie in the same room, in another bed.</p>
<p>Q. Where did Lee lodge?</p>
<p>Macartney. He lodged at my house; he in one room, and Muckleroy in another.</p>
<p>Q. How many weeks ago is this?</p>
<p>Macartney. I don't know. I know Muckleroy lay at home every night he lodged with me: I was at work at home (I am a piece of a taylor). I always saw him go to bed every night.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see Lee often?</p>
<p>Macartney. I did: he lodged with me about six weeks.</p>

<p>Murphy's Defence.</p>
<p>I went to carry the goods to Kelly's house, at Lee's request, but did not know that they were stolen: he said they belonged to his aunt. I am but lately discharged from the army.</p>
<p>Courtney's Defence.</p>
<p>Murphy and Lee came to my father-in-law's house, about seven or eight at night; they asked me whether I could let them have a gallon of beer? Lee asked me if I could pawn some things that belonged to his aunt: I said, I could not: a woman there said she could. He gave her two candlesticks, and she went and pawned them, and they got some beer; that is all I know.</p>

<p>Q. Had you any servants in the house?</p>
<p>Farr. No, I had not. I found a window up stairs had been broke, the sash was screw'd down: they had broke the bottom and upper part of the glass, in order to get the shutters open. Upon enquiring about, I was informed the boy at the bar was seen to come from my garden, with flower-roots. I got a warrant from the Bench of Justices, to take up the boy, and likewise to search the boy's father's house. When we came to Hager-stone, the boy was at play: when he saw the constable and me coming, he took to his heels: the constable went through a house to meet him, but the boy seeing that, returned, and I catched him by the arm: he sadly wanted to call his father. When we came to his father's house, the door was shut, and upon the latch; when we opened it, the father was behind the door: I saw him go out: the first thing I saw was the ostrich's egg hanging up in the house. I found the china tea cups and saucers, and punch bowl, a pair of brass sconces which were put up: after that, I found the leather bag, with gunpowder in it; the mother owned the boy brought the things all there: this was within the hearing of the boy. She said, he got them at a fire in Kingsland road: the boy said, mother, you make a mistake; I told you I got them at an auction. Said I, will they give you brandy and rum, powder and shot at an auction? In the corner of the room was a stone bottle: I said to the boy, that is my bottle: the boy said no, it is my daddy's, touch it if you dare. I said, there is Bradley, Covent-garden, if it is mine, at the bottom. I looked, and found it so. The boy said, he had assisted at an auction, and they gave him all these things for his trouble: then he began to cry, and said, they gave him them: I said, who is they? if any body was concerned with you, tell the truth, and don't accuse an innocent person. We took him to the Bull alehouse; at last he said, if I would be favourable to him, he would tell the truth: he there impeached one

We found Bonam in Smithfield; he threatened to kill the boy, and said, he knew nothing of the matter. We examined his hand where the boy said, and there we found a cut in his finger. When he found there was some proof against him, he begged pardon, and said, if he had known it had been my house he would never have done it; after that he said he did not know the house: he said there was a person in the neighbourhood would be bound for him for a thousand pounds; but that gentleman would not be bound for a farthing for him; he took an opportunity and slipt away from us, and got off.

<p>Q. Does it not waste something?</p>
<p>Mr. Cox. If wastes about half a penny weight an ounce: on complaining to the other man, he was a little uneasy; I did not examine the prisoner, he having lived with me some time: but I was informed afterwards, the prisoner had carried fourteen ounces to Mr. Spinler, in Foster-lane, to sell: this was on the 14th day. I think, in the mean time, the prisoner was out with bills to a considerable amount, which he was to pay in at the bank. Mr. Spinler came and asked me if I had not a servant named Jones: I having no servant of that name, imagined it was not my servant. When the prisoner came home, I asked him if he had been at Mr. Spinler's, or ever went by two names? he said, No: I had then no suspicion, and Mr. Spinler having seen all my servants, I then let the prisoner have bills, to the amount of 300 and odd pounds, to go out for payment: I began to be very uneasy, as I understood he had not paid the other money into the Bank. I sent my apprentice out, who soon overtook him, and brought him back; then Mr. Spinler came to my house, and said, this is the man that brought the silver and gold lace to his house; he was confined in my house, and in the morning he confessed to me, the constable, and another of my servants, that he had robbed me of fourteen ounces odd pennyweight, which he had sold to Mr. Spinler the day before; the money he had secreted between his shoe and stocking: after this he confessed it before Sir

I had this piece of muslin of the prisoner at the bar: he wanted to borrow five guineas, and said he would leave something in the room of it, till he came again: I never looked at it. I knew he used to by goods of his masters, to sell again, and had for a year and a half. The next news I heard after he left it, was, that he absconded: his wife came to my house, and I told her there was a parcel: she looked at it, and said, if she knew who it belonged to, she would let them know. Then she went and let Mr. Vinie know.</p>
<p>Mr. Martin. We have sold the prisoner several parcels of goods, within four or five months; we have looked over our journal, and find no such piece as this entered. When we found the prisoner out, we asked him the reason for his going off? he told me, he went off for fear of having this piece of muslin found. Two or three of our servants now in court heard him say this. (He takes the piece up.) I believe this is our property.</p>
<p>Q. Can you swear you never sold it?</p>
<p>Martin. I cannot pretend to swear that. We advertised it, and the prisoner confessed he went off, for fear of its being found: he knew we should not have troubled him, on account of a debt he owed us. He owned also the same at the Mansion-house.</p>
<p>Q. to Vinie. Can you say this piece never was sold by any of the servants to the prisoner?</p>
<p>Vinie. To the best of my knowledge, it never was. As one piece was missing, by looking over the books, the prisoner was naturally asked the question, whether he knew of the going of it, as well as others? It rested a fortnight, or three weeks, till such time it was advertised: after that, he went off.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>Mr. Martin and I have had several dealings together; the last parcel of goods that I had, this piece came home in the parcel: I looked upon it as my property, so I pledged it for five guineas.</p>

<p>Q. If you should say falsely, what will be the consequence?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. If I do, God Almighty will d - n me; but I will speak the truth.</p>
<p>Q. Where does your mother live?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. She lives on Artichoke-hill.</p>
<p>Q. What is your father?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. My father is a coleheaver.</p>
<p>Court. Now take care, and say nothing but what is exactly true.</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I will. On Thursday before quarter day last the prisoner said, Molly, will you go with me out of Rosemary-lane, to see my sick mother? going through an alley, first she said, Will you give me that money you have in your pocket? I said I can take care of it myself: she then knock'd me down, and took it out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. What did she take out of your pocket?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. She took a guinea, two six-pences, a shilling, and some halfpence.</p>
<p>Q. How came you by that money?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. My mamma gave it to me, to carry home, to put in a drawer to pay a quarter's rent.</p>
<p>Q. Had you told the prisoner any thing about the money?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. No: I had not.</p>
<p>Q. What did she knock you down with?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. With her fist; I arose up again, and ran from her, and cried out she had robbed me; she was going to stamp upon me.</p>
<p>Q. Where did your mamma give it you?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. In Rosemary-lane; here is the woman who was with my mamma then.</p>
<p>Q. Was it in a house, or in the street?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. It was in the street.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner with you there?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. She came to me two or three minutes after my mamma gave it to me.</p>
<p>Q. Did she see your mamma give it to you?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I believe she might.</p>
<p>Q. What time did the prisoner take the money from you?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. It was between six and seven in the evening.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure it was the prisoner at the bar?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I know it was her; I followed her all the way, till she was taken up by Shoreditch church.</p>
<p>Q. Did you keep sight of her all the way?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I did; I never lost sight of her: I called out she had robbed me, and a gentleman charged a constable with her.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know her before?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. No: I did not.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Do you do any business?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I go out to service.</p>
<p>Q. Do you say you never saw the prisoner before?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I never saw her before?</p>
<p>Q. Was your mother sent for to you?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. She was.</p>
<p>Q. Did not your mamma say to you, you was a naughty girl, she had not seen you from eight that morning?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. No; she did not.</p>
<p>Q. What was your mamma's business in Rosemary-lane?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. My mamma went to buy a bit of meat.</p>
<p>Q. What time did she go there?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. She had been there all day, till she sent me home with the money.</p>
<p>Q. What did you say to the prisoner, when she asked you to go with her?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I said yes, I would, with all my heart.</p>
<p>Q. What words did she make use of?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. She said, Polly, Will you go along with me?</p>
<p>Q. Then she knew you before?</p>
<p>M. Halfpenny. I thought she did by that; we went into the Hackney road, and I thought it might be some of the neighbours.</p>

<p>Q. When was this?</p>
<p>Welch. This was a month ago, to-day, I believe: I took the prisoner in custody; there came up a marine, and said the prisoner had some of his money; he searched her, and got 8 s. 6 d.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176504170020"/> which she owned was his property; he took it from her; she denied seeing any money of the girl's; I found only that 8 s. 6 d. upon her; when the girl's mother was sent for to the watch-house, she said her daughter had not a farthing in her pocket, only six pence.</p>
<p>Mr. Slipper. I happened to go to a public house; I saw the house in confusion; I enquired the reason of it; there was a marine, and some women that appeared to be girls of the town: the marine said he had been robbed of upwards of 30 l. by the woman at the bar; she was then in our watch-house in Shore-ditch: I said, How came you by so much money? said the marine, I received it at the pay-office, and have been along with her, and she has robb'd me of it: When the mother of the girl was sent for, she came, about ten at night; I desired she might be kept from the daughter; I said to the daughter, How much money has this woman robb'd you of? she answered, of a guinea, a nine-shilling piece, and eighteen-pence (three six-pences): I said, How came you by so much money? she said her mother gave it her: I asked her where her mother lived; she said she keeps a shop in Rag-fair; but lives somewhere in Ratcliff-Highway; she said her mother gave her that money in order to lock up, to pay the rent, and not to let her father see it; for he is a coal-heaver, and a very drunken man. I said, Why did you go with this woman? she said she knew her very well, she had been servant with her mother three days; that she came to the shop that afternoon, and saw her mother give her the money, and she inveigled her to go with her to see her mother in Shoreditch: that she went with her, and she brought her up some turnings, and asked her for the money, and knocked her down, and took it from her. When the mother came, I spoke to her; the girl said, don't you speak to my mother; she will go into fits, and I shall also fall into fits: I said to the mother, Pray, good woman, where did you see your daughter last? she looked, and said, O! there she is! O you impudent wretch! I have not seen you since eight o'clock this morning; how dare you be out so long. Said I, Does she often go out? She said, Yes, too often. Said I, Do you trust this girl with any money? she said, No; I have none to trust her with: said the girl, Did not you give me a guinea? said the mother, I have not a shilling in the world: said the girl, Don't you remember you gave me a guinea? O! said the mother, I gave you two guineas; I hope you have not lost them: Yes, said the girl, Bett Jones has robb'd me. Then said I, are not you a wicked woman, to behave in this manner? then the mother sham'd fits. I never in my days saw so iniquitous an affair.</p>
<p>Q. What are you?</p>
<p>Slipper. I am school-master at Shoreditch.</p>
<p>Q. to the daughter. You said, when I asked you if you knew the consequence of an oath, that if you did not speak truth, God Almighty would d - n you; do you consider what that is?</p>
<p>Girl. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How could you dare to give such an account as you now have done, that appears entirely false?</p>
<p>Girl. Sir, indeed she took and knock'd me down, and took the money out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Court. You said you did not know her before, and you told that witness you did know her.</p>
<p>Girl. I never said I knew her before.</p>
<p>Court. I expect you will tell me who set you to say as you have done: there is no way of saving yourself in this world or the next, but by telling the truth: I expect you will tell me directly.</p>
<p>Girl. No body but myself, indeed, Sir.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I am clear of every thing.</p>
<p>The mother to the girl. I desire to be examined.</p>
<p>Court. Here are two people swear positively against what your daughter has swore; and if I find you are perjured, I shall immediately commit you; so consider of it: you declared you gave the girl no money at all till she talked to you. Do you know the prisoner?</p>
<p>Mother. I can't say I know her.</p>
<p>Q. Did she live servant to you.</p>
<p>Mother. She did once; that was three days.</p>
<p>She declined being sworn.</p>
