I ran round the counter, and overtook her in Primrose-street, and took her by the shoulder; she took and threw the cloak on the ground, and begged to be let go. Mr. Fountain, an officer, was near, to whom I gave her in charge. (Produced in court and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Mr. Fountain. I am a constable, I was about 60 yards distance when the prosecutor laid hold of the prisoner. I saw the cloak fall to the ground. He called to me, and gave me charge of her. She said she found the cloak at his door: she said the same before the justice.</p>

The prisoner came to me on the 13th of last month, where I live, in Hungerford market, and desired me to carry some bottles for him: he sent me down, and said there were three prittle baskets, the farthest of them was his. He did not go quite to them, I went and took them up; Mr. Hounsworth helped me up with them. I went to the prisoner, he led me through Church court and Round court, and into Southampton-street, where I had a fall with them, and several were broke; he swore at me and helped me up with them. I carried them to a pitching-place at the corner of White Horse lane, there he gave me three-pence, and I left him and them together.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Wilkins. No, I never saw him before to my knowledge. After they were missing, Mr. Hounsworth informed the porter of me, and they came to me, and I went with them to the house of Mr. Hoy, where the basket and bottles were found.</p>

(a basket and bottles produced.) These are the same. After that, Mr. Watts's man, name Grant, came and owned them.</p>

<p>Q. Did you leave any one in the care of them?</p>
<p>Grant. No, I did not, it is not usual so to do. Mr. Hounsworth told me a porter that lives in Hungerford market, had carried them away; we went and found Wilkins, who went with us, and we found the prittle and these bottles at Mr. Hoy's (here produced) I know the basket to be the property of our master, and the bottles also, there being none like them made nay where else in London.</p>

On the 18th of October at night, I was with them. I met Shields at the top of Fleet-market, about two o'clock that afternoon, along with another lad. We went down upon the keys in Thames-street, and staid till four in the afternoon; then we came to the Fleet-market again: there one of the boys broke a window, and a man took him and put him in Bridewell. Then we went to the Strand, and there met Rich about six o'clock. Then we went to the prosecutor's window. Shields broke it.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any intent upon that particular window before?</p>
<p>Brown. Shields told me about four that afternoon, he knew of a very good place where we might get some silver breast-buckles, and we told Rich of it when we met him. Shields broke a little bit of the window with a knife: then he pushed the glass in with his hand. He had a wire, with which he hooked out five breast-buckles. We went a little way. He gave Rich one: then Shields and I went back again, and got six more, and a pair of silver shoe-buckles and an odd one. Then we went to St. Giles's. I do not know where Rich went. Shields gave the buckles to a girl to put by for him all night. He broke the stones out of the odd shoe-buckle against a post that had iron upon it, and sold the silver for old silver to a silversmith near Leicester-fields for 1 s. He went to bed with that girl, and I went and lay on a bulk by Whitehall: and the next morning I went, as we had appointed, to him. He was in bed with the girl, in the Coal-yard, St. Giles's.</p>
<p>Q. What is the girl's name?</p>
<p>Brown. I do not know. She gave him the buckles again in the bag, which he had delivered them in to her: then we met an old cloaths woman in Drury-lane. We shewed her the buckles. She said she would give 6 s. for them. She went towards Justice Fielding's, and we did not chuse to follow her. Then we went into Eagle-court to

She was a little in liquor. When I went to take some of them out of the window, Shields said, Stand away with your clumsy hands, you can do nothing. Shields desired a young woman that was with her to go and pawn some breast-buckles, and she pawned three breast-buckles for 7 s. and he gave me 3 s. 6 d. of the money.

I had got about half way up the lane, when Wilkins came from the left-hand side with a cutlass in his hand, and laid hold of my mare. He was on foot. He held his cutlass up. There were two other men with him. With a good many oaths, they said, Stop, stop; your money, your watch. They were on each side of me: they laid hold of my knees. I saw two cutlasses, and a large horse pistol: he with the pistol is not taken. Scott asked me for any watch: I said I had never a one. I pulled out my money: it was loose, between 9 and 10 l. there were eight guineas and a half, and the rest in silver. I said, There are near ten guineas. Scott weighed it in his hand, and put it in his pocket: he almost pulled my shirt out of my breeches, to see for a watch. I said, for God's sake, gentlemen, do not destroy me; I have no watch: then he pulled my glove off, and took my ring, a gold ring, with a cornelian stone: then he took one buckle out of my shoe, and spoke to Wilkins, who was on the other side, and said they were silver; then Wilkins took the other. Scott had got at one of my spurs: I said, they are only plated; then he did not take it. They went to take my knee-buckles; they could not get them out. Scott said, see whether he has got ever a pocket-book. Wilkins felt in my pocket; it lay pretty low: he took it out with both hands from my breast-pocket, and tore all the lining, and almost pulled me from my mare. Then he said, D - n him, let him go. There were a note for 20 l. another 8 guineas, another 6 l. made payable to me or order. Neither pocketbook nor notes have been seen since. They took my whip from me, and ran down the road towards Fig-lane. There was a little cart coming caused them to go so soon, I imagine. I have seen the two prisoners since at New-Prison and the Gatehouse. I know them both: I had seen their persons before. I had seen Wilkins about Covent-Garden with the chairmen.

He was bragging what money they had got, and how they spent it in Covent-Garden among the boys, as he called them. He said, Master, I was the first that ran up to you with the cutlass: I said, I know you was. He mentioned three or four people that were along with him, and told me he would help me to my pocket-book: he said there were 8 s. in silver, besides 8 guineas and a half. When I asked him for my pocket-book, he said, Master, if you'll serve me, I'll serve you: let me see you another time, and I will let you have your pocket-book; it is safe enough: he sent me to Mr. Monk's, in Russel-street, where I found my ring; this he did when I was at the Brown Bear.

<p>Rich. Church. On the 25th or 26th of Novemb. between 7 and nine in the evening, I had occasion to come through Catherine-court; there I saw Wilkins dressed in a sailor's jacket and trousers, he asked several people to go into an alehouse, and said he would treat them; after that he came out, and went away; and in less than a quarter of an hour he came back again, dressed in a blue surtout coat, with a hanger by his side: he drew it out, and flourished it about in the court 3 or 4 times. He talked to several people, but what he said I do not know. After seeing some advertisements about this robbery, I gave information of this to Sir John, and went in quest of him with some of Sir John's people; and on the Friday morning we apprehended him in a court that turns out of Cross-lane up into Holbourn. He seemed at first as if he knew nothing of the matter: at last he was in tears and said he would own every thing, when we came to take him to New-Prison: then he desired us to send for Mr. Dennis. He said, going along, he knew he was a dying man; and when he came into this court, he would plead guilty. We had apprehended some suspicious people, and one of them said he knew something of Scott; so we went and took him (this was before we took Wilkins): we took him in Catherine-court, up two or three pair of stairs: he informed us where Wilkins lodged: Scott mentioned him,

The gentleman rode off, I stood trembling. Wooley met another gentleman after that, and desired him to stand immediately: he came up to me and said, You rascal, if you do not lay hold of this, I will blow your brains out. There I stood shaking, fearing my life. What he took from the man, I know no more than the child unborn. When we came back, he said, Here go and sell those buckles, and when you come back I will treat you with a pot out of it; I went and sold them for 6 s. and 6 d. and gave Wooley the money: he was to have come to me the next morning, but instead of that,

I left that shop safe on the 4th of October at night, and on the 5th, between 6 and 7 o'clock in the morning I found it broke open in the back part of it; there were a great quantity of goods taken away; all that are mentioned in the indictment. On the Wednesday following Mr. Bruin, a pawn-broker on Snow-hill, sent for me; I went and found the prisoner and two pieces of gauze, but cannot take upon me to sware to them; but recollecting a woman had made some things for me of that gauze, we sent for her, she knew it to be my gauze. The prisoner said she bought the gauze in Rag-fair; we took her before the sitting Alderman, he gave me a warrant to search her house. We found a housewife upon the table, with some of my lace, and two pieces of ribbon, which were my property, also several lappets made of gauze, and several remnants of lace which I can swear to. In a box we found one cap, under the bed another; in the pocket of a blue coat we found some pieces of lace. Under the dresser one plain gauze flowered bordered handkerchief, one gauze laced mob, one queen's mob, one queen's round cap, and about 5 yards of blue ribbon, 5 yards of black edging was found in the room, and the trimmings of my red cardinal, which I can swear to. (The goods produced in court, and deposed to by the prosecutrix.) Mr. Kennet was at the finding the rest. I asked her whose coat that was, in which the piece of lace was, she said it was the man's she lived with. I asked her if it was her husband's, she said no, that she sometimes lived with him, and sometime swent away. There is the mark of a woman's foot on a piece of board, that lay just under the window, where she came into the shop. (Produced in court with a dirty print of a woman's foot upon it. Inspected by the Jury.)</p>
<p>Mr. Kennet. On the 9th of October in the evening, I was sent for to Mr. Bruin's, he described the woman that had brought the gauze. I said I knew her, and mentioned where she lived; I sent for her, (it was the prisoner.) She said she bought the gauze in Rag-fair; I took her in custody on suspicion of being concerned in this robbery. The next day we took her before Sir

I went to the house where she lived, and found part of the things; a poor woman came down and said, O sir, I have found the rest of the things, there was a place broke in the garret, up into a cockloft, a hole was broke through, and it had a communication with the next house; then the woman handed the things through a hole out of a room even with the floor I was in. The things she handed through were a sack of butter, and 2 pieces of blue serge, a red cloak, a small piece of cheque, a great number of caps, a large quantity of other gauze, a little box with caps and ribbons. I took them home, and carried the woman at the bar next day to be examined; there was a man appeared in her behalf, and wanted it to be made up, his name was Wilks, he is a kind of a carpenter, and now he is turned quack-doctor, and was going to open a shop in Chick-lane. I have heard nothing of him since.</p>

The watchmen came and took the prisoner out of the cellar to the watch house. (He produced a dark lanthorn, and an iron wrenching tool;) these were found upon him, he begged to be let go.</p>

I asked the prisoner if he knew any thing of my waistcoat; he said he took it one night when he came from Richmond to my Lady's very wet, and he had put it into his box and had lost the key. On the 28th of November I missed one of my shirts out of the pantry, between the hours of 12 and 1 in the day: I went and enquired after him: he lodged near my Lady's house in the Meuse. I met him in the Strand: I said, Now pray Mr. Whittall, give me my waistcoat, I want it; he said it was in his box; I went with him: he took the key and opened the box, and said the waistcoat is not here, that he had taken it home for me: I asked him who saw him bring it home, he said they all saw him: the next morning I told my Lady what had happened: she said she expected me to pay for the spoons; then I went and got a warrant, and took him up: he was asked by the Justice in what manner he lived; he said his wife supported him: the Justice said, It was a scandal to the breeches to be supported by a wife for three years together: he was taken to the Round-house till the Monday: I went and got an hundred hand-bills printed: I had not been gone above an hour before I found two spoons at Mr. Fleming's, a pawn-broker at the corner of Crane-court (produced and deposed to). As we were carrying him to prison, he owned my waistcoat was at the same place, where I went and found it (produced and deposed to). He told me of the shirt, and I found it accordingly: he owned he took and pledged them.</p>

I am apprentice to my father: on the 2d of this instant, Mr. Pigg came and brought a hand-bill, and mentioned the tablespoons and a waistcoat: I went and found the spoons; they were brought by the prisoner: I have known him two or three years.</p>

About the 5th of November last I had been out, and when I came home I missed two pair of pumps which I had put out at the door for sale. About a fortnight after came a man from Bridewell, and asked me if I had lost two pair of pumps. I went according to his direction to Justice Welch, there I saw the prisoner: he said I should have them again: he ordered two journey men bakers to go and get the pumps from pawn, that lay one pair in the name of

The answer they brought from the other pawn-broker was, there were no shoes pawned in such a name: then I went to the pawn-broker, and asked if he had a pair pawned in the name of

I said, if you will go with me, I'll go and take them out, and you shall hear no more of it. I went to the pawn-broker, and took as many things out as came to 7 s. 8 d. she said they were all. I sent her home with them. I staid a little with the pawnbroker. When I came home, she was absconded. After that I missed my prayer book. I met the woman that recommended her, and she together: she ran away, I ran and brought her to my house; then I went to the pawn broker, and said I insisted he should bring her to justice: then he said he had two pair of breeches, my prayer book, a gown, a napkin, and two coloured aprons.

I was called up on the 17th a little before 7, and told my cellar window was broke open; I came down and found the bolt and staple were wrenched off; I found the tap-room door between that and the cellar broke open also; I found the tea chest removed from the dresser to the counter, where I serve my liquor, open, and the 5 spoons, strainer and tongs were taken out. My daughter looked round and missed several pair of stockings; I missed halfpence and farthings to the amount, I believe, of 3 or 4 l. but I can safely say there were 50 s. worth missing. I found two burners in the cellar which they had taken from some lamps. I advertised the things on the 18th, and the same evening Mr. Clark came to my house, and asked me what I had lost; I told him, and that the spoons were marked C, R, W. Said he I have got four of the spoons, and had not an opportunity of reading the paper in the morning as usual, so had not stopped the person that brought them, but should know the person if he saw her, and that he had been after her but could not find her, she not living at the place she had told him: he took her on the 20th, and brought her to me; it was the prisoner English. I asked her several questions; she answered me but few: I said tell me how I may come at these persons that have used me in this manner. At last she said he will come about noon to her house. Mr. Clark, Mr. Chapman the headborough, and I, waited the opportunity, and the prisoner, Pritchard, came much about that time; but I having English in my care, I was not at the taking him: he and Hughes were both brought together to me at the Black Horse in George-street, near my house. I asked them several questions; Pritchard told me he was in my house. I desired him to tell me where my tongs and strainer were; he said he could not tell, but

Hughes acknowledged he was in my house with Pritchard, but did not know where the things were sold; before the Justice, he asked them if they were in the house, Pritchard said yes.

I asked her if she knew Mrs. White's christian name, she said Rachel; I said, then you must know that they are Mrs. White's spoons; she said the could not read.

I believe I staid rather too long. One of them said to me, you seem to be a little in liquor, and I am so too; we had both better leave our watches with the landlord, which we both did. After I had got out of doors, I returned, and asked the landlord to give me my watch again. I thought I should not be that way for some time. Then I went out of the door to go home, as it was very late. The prisoner at the bar came and clasped me round the neck; I dare say I was not six yards from the door, and swore she would give me a kiss; she had got my head backwards. There were several people, men and women, pushing me about; she put her hand into my pocket, and took out the money; there were 15 guineas in my pocket, and I found only two guineas and a 5 s. 3 d. left. I cried out, hold her, I am robbed. I never let go of her; she took 13 guineas out of my pocket, and some silver. I never parted with her, though I was pinched to such a degree, that my arms were black and blue; and I had been several times on my knees, yet I kept hold of her, and delivered her into the hands of the officer.</p>

I was constable of the night; going my round at one o'clock, about 100 yards distance, I heard a person cry, I have been robb'd. When I came up I found the prosecutor and prisoner struggling together. The prisoner was trying to get away; at first the man said he had been robb'd, but did not mention the sum; he charged the prisoner; and she charged him. I took them both to the watch-house, and there he charged her with having robb'd him of 13 guineas. She was searched, and only half a guinea found upon her; she said she had not the money herself, but she knew who had; and that if she thought she should have been taken, it should not have been he and another such that should have taken her.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>They say so many false things against me I do not know what to say. When he gave the constable charge of me, he said I had taken 100 l. and a gold watch; then he said 300 l. and then 2, till the gentlemen at the victualling-office came and advised with him; then he said he had lost 13 guineas. He was in company with a woman in the public house: after the woman was gone, he got tossing up. The landlady said she would appear in my behalf, but she would not come for fear of losing her licence.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Did you see the prisoner in the public house?</p>

I became acquainted with him the latter end of August; we went out all three together, from Reynolds's house in Labour-in-vain alley.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you set out?</p>
<p>Armstrong. I think we set out in the afternoon. Smith and I went together to Reynolds's house; from thence we proceeded to Brentford. We generally appointed what place to go to.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sober?</p>
<p>Armstrong. We always kept ourselves sober. I had a pistol, Smith bought it; I believe I carried it all the way. Reynolds and Smith had each a stick. The pistol was loaded. We turned up a lane, and crossed two fields and over some stiles. We overtook the gentleman and two ladies; and after we passed them we turned down a lane; we saw a house, we were at a stand whether we should attack the gentleman or not. We all turned back; and I believe I was the first person that laid hold of the gentleman, and Smith I believe was the next. The ladies flew back, and Smith left me and Reynolds, and went to them. The gentleman asked me if I was in a joke: I said I was in earnest, and took his watch from out of his right hand; then I searched his right hand pocket and took his money; Reynolds was taking money out of his other pocket, and he took and cut the pocket out. To the best of my knowledge Reynolds, took the buckles out of his shoes and knees. Smith took the ladies money, in two purses, and both their buckles. I took one sleeve button out of one of the ladies sleeves. I took this handkerchief from Mr. Eaton; and Reynolds took some papers from him, and the knives. After this we ran away. There are some posts. Reynolds staid behind some time; he said Mr. Eaton shook hands with him: he in coming after us did not observe the post; he ran against one and knocked himself down. We crossed the water by Kewgreen, and so came home, to the best of my remembrance.</p>
<p>Q. This is so lately you must remember these circumstances?</p>
<p>Armstrong. We have had so many of these things, that I cannot remember them to distinguish one from the other. I gave my two associates a shilling for this handkerchief; the watch was sold to a gentleman at Charing-cross; I saw Smith sell it: I was about near the door. This knife here produced was found in Reynolds's pocket when

<p>Q. Did you see where he took it from?</p>
<p>Cooke. I think he took it from his bosom. He ran away, I called out stop thief; a man tripped up his heels; he was never out of my sight till taken. I got a constable and charged him; he was taken to the Compter, and next day before the sitting Alderman at Guildhall. I there produced the handkerchief: he there said he took it

<p>I picked up the handkerchief. A man passed by me, I did not know him; he went up by the market. The gentleman turned about, and asked me if it was his handkerchief: I said if it was, he might have it. I gave it him, and he gave charge of me directly. If it had been a handkerchief of gold, I should never have attempted to steal it.</p>

He wanted to go through the George-inn-yard on Snow-hill, and the gate was shut, so he ran down to the Fox and Knot; there being no way through he came back, and we laid hold of him (it was the prisoner), and took him to the Compter.

<p>Mr. Austin. I am a gangsman: on the 18th of November, between the hours of 2 and 3, I called who would work. The prisoner was standing on the quays; he ran towards me with other people; most of them wore tickets. I said, the tickets would work before the others. About 15 minutes after I saw him in our half story; he stooped and picked up something; he had his trowsers under his arm. I said, what have you got here? I felt and found sugar in them. I took him to the Cock and Anchor to the rest of our people, and examined his trowsers, and found about twenty pounds of sugar in them (produced in court). Then he said he took it from a hogshead: I found the head of it was broke in.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>The sugar that was taken from me, was given to me by a ship-mate.</p>

<p>Mr. Davidson. I am a pawn-broker, and live by London-wall; the lad at the bar was brought up in our ward school: I knew he could not come honestly by the buckle, which he brought to my house the 5th of November to be valued. I was not at home, but my young man stopped it, and gave me an account that the prisoner brought it. On the Wednesday morning the prisoner came again, and said to me, as he did not offer it to pledge or sell, I had no right to stop it. I said, tell me how you came by it; I know you must have stole it, as he had told my young man that a jeweller had offered him 15 s. for it. He said a young woman gave it him upon her death-bed in Holborn. I said that would not do for me: where do you live? He said he lived at 'Squire Grant's in Long-acre. I desired his mother would come to satisfy me it was his own: he said she could not come till Sunday. She not coming, I advertised it on the Thursday. I sent, and could find no such person as 'Squire Grant in Long-acre. On the Wednesday in the afternoon the prisoner came with a gentleman, which I suppose was sent by one Lewis an attorney, to make a
