<p>Nicholson. No, I described him to the watchman, and told him how I had been used; the boy was taken up a little after, that very night, and carried to the watch-house in Wapping; the next morning he confessed the fact, and said one was a tall man, and the other shorter, in a brown coat; that one went by the name of Jack, and the other Castleton; he said they had desired him to go along with them, and he should have better clothes; that he went with them, and they desired him to come over the way to me as I was going along, and ask what I had got in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Were there no other people going along at that time?</p>
<p>Nicholson. I saw none.</p>
<p>Q. from Craycraft. What house did you come out of at that time of the night?</p>
<p>Nicholson. I came out of Mr. Jackson's house, the ship in Distress.</p>
<p>Q. from Craycraft. Whether you did not go into any house where were women?</p>
<p>Nicholson. No, I did not, I only had a pot or two of beer at Jackson's, and changed a nine shilling piece; I had been with a shipmate.</p>

<interp inst="t17680706-28-person236" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I shall be sixteen years of age on the 17th of August next. On Sunday was se'nnight I was at the Black-boy on Saltpetre-bank; I went there with other boys that had been out to pick pockets, one of their names was Terry Tinley; there was Craycraft in that house cursing and swearing, in a lewd woman's company; she was got away, and he swore if he could come at her he would searify her face, so that she should never go into company again; he did not know her name, but I do; the other prisoner sat by Craycraft.</p>
<p>Q. How many people were in the house?</p>
<p>Sullivan. There were one man and two women, the man was the waiter, and one of the women was the woman of the house's daughter; Craycraft called me Irishman; he said, here Irishman, drink; they had the Saturday before asked me to go with them; as soon as I had drank, Craycraft put his finger up to his nose and looked to the door, signifying I was to go out; I went out and staid at the corner of Blackboy-alley; he went out at the other door and made a noise after the woman, but could not find her; the other prisoner came out also; we all three went down Saltpetre-bank, about half way, a little below Terry Finley's, we met Terry, he asked me where I was going; I said, down the bank; said Craycraft, come along with us; we all four went down together, and went into Blackhorse-yard; there Craycraft told hold of my arm and searched me for money, and the other prisoner searched Terry Finley, but we had not a farthing about us; then Mr. Nicholson came by; said Craycraft, there is a sucking cull, that is, a drunken gentleman, go and ask him what he has got; he had something white in his pocket; I went up to him and said, what is that coming out of your pocket; he said, get away you little bastard; then Craycraft came behind him and knocked him down with his double fist; after he dropped, Craycraft put his hand to his eyes, and Bourn picked his pocket; the man said he had got but two-pence halfpenny in the world; then Craycraft said, hush, you thief, if you offer to speak a word, I'll cut your throat directly; the constable of the night was in the watch-house, which is close by the turning; I crossed the way, and we went up the bank to Mrs. Evans's at the Black Boy; I stood at the door while they went in and had a quartern of gin or aniseed, it cost two pence halfpenny; they had changed a six-pence, and they gave me the three-pence halfpenny; I returned it to Craycraft again; Craycraft told me the thief (meaning the man they robbed) had but a shilling.</p>
<p>Q. What became of Terry Finley?</p>
<p>Sullivan. As soon as Bourn let him go to Craycraft, after he had knocked the man down, Terry ran away; we went after this towards Tower-hill, and met a sailor, and robbed him; after that we came to the watch house, near where we robbed Nicholson; Craycraft put his head into the watch-house, and said, d - n you, blast you all together; when he was at a little distance he said, if they were to come after him he would cut their throats directly; Nicholson was in the watch-house; seeing me, he said, there is the lad; I said I will not run away; the two prisoners ran away, and they took me into the watch-house. The next day they brought me to the bench of Justices in Whitechapel; I confessed the fact and had my liberty, and was sitting in the constable's house;
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176807060012"/> last Monday se'nnight I saw the two prisoners go by, both their hats were flapped; I said there are the two men; I had told the constable one of them had a black patch on the left side his check, which he had when taken; there were two men singing ballads in the street; the two prisoners stopped and stood talking to two sailors; Mrs. Chapman sent for her husband, he came and took them.</p>
<p>Q. from Craycraft. Whether you are hired, or had the clothes you have on to tell this story?</p>
<p>Suilivan. I had not a shirt to my back, I was full of vermin; these clothes I have on were then in pawn, and they were got out for me; I worked very hard for this coat, but as for the money that bought the shirt and waistcoat, it was not got honestly.</p>
<p>Q. from Craycraft. Whether the constable is not to put you apprentice.</p>
<p>Sullivan. No, the Justices said to the constable, mind after this thing is over, do you take care of this boy, as he says he has friends in his own country, send him over to them, they live at Waterford in Ireland.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you followed picking of pockets?</p>
<p>Sullivan. I have followed it about two or three months; I have been almost six years from my own country.</p>

I am an officer belonging to St. John's; Wapping; last Sunday night was a week about a quarter before twelve, I was at the watch-house door; I saw two men and this lad come down from Saltpetre bank; then I went to the chair; one of them came to the watch-house and said, d - n you, blast your eyes all together; the lad said some bad word to that purpose; then I spoke to one of the watchmen to come along with me, thinking they were going about some bad work; we went down a thoroughfare into Nightingale-lane, and stood at a corner about ten minutes; hearing no disturbance at all we returned to the watch-house; I laid my arm upon the watch-house door, up came the lad and the two prisoners; the lad crossed the way and said, indeed, Sir, I did not go to run away, I did not go to do it, crying and whining, as much as to say he was an apprentice to one of them; one of them talked to him as though he was his master, but I cannot be positive as to the words; then they went up Saltpetre-bank; I said to the watchmen, these people have done something amiss, this was just as the watch was going out twelve; about five minutes after this, one of the watchmen found the prosecutor and brought him in; we asked him what was the matter; he told me he had been robbed; then I took two of my watchmen and went, and searched every corner about Saltpetre-bank, but
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176807060013"/> found nobody; then I went round Well-street and to the watch-house again, then to Nightingale-lane; coming back, one of the watchmen came running to me, and said the man has got the lad, that was one that robbed him; then I went and found him in the watch-house, and was told the other two were run away; I put the lad in the dark hole behind; I asked him some questions, he seemed to deny it at first; then I took him to the cage and locked him up about three. The next morning about eight or nine I took him out, and had him examined before the bench of Justices; he said one of the two men was named Cassady, that the tall one which is Craycraft, had a black patch on his left cheek, and the other went by the name of Jack.</p>
<p>Q. to Sullivan. Do you remember what was said as you went by the watch-house after the robbery?</p>
<p>Sullivan. I did sham a cry, and talk as if one of them was my master, that they should not mistrust us.</p>
<p>Chambers. Then I had a warrant to apprehend them; the lad said he never had been concerned with them before; he told the Justices how the robbery was committed, that the two prisoners stood at a corner, and they said to him, there is a sucking call, go to him; that he went up to Nicholson and asked him what he had in his pocket, and that the tall man came behind him and knocked him down, and put his hand upon his eyes, and said if he spoke he would cut his throat; that Nicholson said, for God's sake, spare my life, take my money, and something about his saying he had but two-pence halfpenny.</p>
<p>Q. What time was the boy taken?</p>
<p>Chambers. I believe he was taken a little after one o'clock; I took the two prisoners the same day, being Monday; there were two men singing ballads about Wilkes; the lad was then in my kitchen; he saw the prisoners go by, he told my wife they were the men; my wife sent my apprentice for me, I had a cutlace under my coat; the lad had told me they were blood-thirsty men, and desired me not to go unarmed; I went, they were talking to some paviours and two other people; I with assistance secured them.</p>
<p>Q. Did the lad tell you any thing of another lad being with them?</p>
<p>Chambers. He did, he said his name was Terry Finley of about twelve years of age, but he ran away when the man was knocked down; that lad follows picking of pockets; I do believe Craycraft was the man that looked into the watch-house and said, d - n you, blast you all together; they had the same coloured clothes on as now; one wore lighter clothes than the other, with flapped hats; I took particular notice of the boy, I can swear to him in particular.</p>

<p>P. Ewen. He did, and I told him I would sooner beg my bread.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you imagine he had made away with himself?</p>
<p>P. Ewen. Because he must imagine justice would overtake him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you fall when he shot you?</p>
<p>P. Ewen. No, I was supported by two persons.</p>
<p>Q. Was he never out of his senses while he lived with you?</p>
<p>P. Ewen. No, only when he was drunk, he was then as other drunken men are.</p>

<interp inst="t17680706-29-person256" type="gender" value="female"/> </persName> . I lodge in the house, I was in my own apartment, I heard a great cry of murder, I thought there were thieves below murdering the people, and if I go down they will murder me; I listened at the window, and heard Mr. Blake's voice, which I knew very well, I was at his wedding at Kensington; I hearing the maid
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176807060015"/> cry murder in the garden, I went to the window; just as I got to the window I heard a pistol go off, I saw Mrs. Ewen's hair and cap all on fire; she cried, hold me, hold me, I am a dead woman, that wretch (or that poor creature) has murdered me.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who fired the pistol?</p>
<p>E. Freeman. I am sure it was the prisoner that fired it; I went down into the entry, she met me, and said, O Mrs. Freeman, he has shot me, he has shot me! I said, God forbid; she said, the bullet is in me, send for a doctor; I saw blood running down her neck: after this I heard another pistol go off in the garden.</p>
<p>P. Ewen. It was not this gentlewoman that saw the prisoner fly from the window, she is gone into Essex, that was she that said she saw the pistol come out of his pocket; as soon as she heard he was coming out of the hospital she was in great terror, and would not stay.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>She came to my lodgings about three or four days before this happened; I asked her for a few things that were planted in the garden; she said I should have none; I desired to have a few of some that were mine when I married her; she would not let me; I made over some houshold goods to her, and have not had them to this moment; I also made over some houses to her, one at Hyde park-corner, and another at Knights-bridge, and the house she lives in; she has a silver punch ladle that was mine.</p>
<p>P. Ewen. These were my houses before I was married to him, the ladle was bought with my money.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not think of any such thing as firing a pistol; I went there and sat down, and asked for a little small beer; she would not give me any; I asked for a little water; she denied it me, and said she would turn me out of the house; I said I would not go out till she turned me out; I said, will you be friends with me; she said she would; I went to buss her, and going to put my mouth to her she snatched her head away, and the pistol went off accidentally; as for another pistol, I had never another about me; when she cried out, she was killed, I was so frightened that I did not know what I did; I intended to make away with myself, if she would not let me be with her, that was the reason I carried a pistol; when I married to her, the other woman was parted from me 26 or 27 years, and had married another man.</p>
<p>The record of his trial and conviction for bigamy was read in court, and also his receiving his punishment for the same.</p>

<p>Q. Where had you been drinking that afternoon?</p>
<p>Campbell. Why with company that I met with, I had been drinking a good deal.</p>
<p>Q. Can you recollect what past?</p>
<p>Campbell. There was a good deal past between me and her, I was not so stupid in liquor but I remember what she did; she took away my purse and four guineas.</p>
<p>Q. What room did she carry you into?</p>
<p>Campbell. The ground floor in the kitchen.</p>

<p>Q. Did she give you the rest again?</p>
<p>Campbell. She dropped it on the floor, and went out to an alehouse opposite where she lives.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it before you discovered she had robbed you?</p>
<p>Campbell. I soon discovered it, I went after her immediately, and charged her; she pretended she had given the money to another, and she would endeavour to find it out; she left me there, and ran away; I took her up, the next day I got a constable, and searched all over for money; she denied it.</p>
<p>Q. How many times had you visited this lady before?</p>

On the 18th of June I happened to be in liquor; I picked the prisoner up, I do not know the place she took me to; I met with her in Cheapside; I know my money was safe in a canvas bag, buttoned in my pocket, the same as laid in the indictment (mentioning the separate pieces) as we walked together talking of things in our way; I believe I had not been in her company above half an hour, it may be not a quarter of an hour, before my purse and money were gone; I told her she had taken it, she denied it.</p>
<p>Q. What house had you been in?</p>
<p>Slogden. We had been in no house, I told her if she would return it, I would give her half a guinea, and let all drop; she still denied it; I took her down to the corner of the street, I was so much in liquor I do not know the street; upon that a watchman that heard the dispute between us came, I told him I had lost my money; he walked back with me to the place in the street where I missed it; we took her with us, we could not find it; I then charged the watch with her, they sent for a woman to search her in the watch-house; the woman found the money and purse upon her; she kicked and scratched a good deal, and was very unwilling to be searched, it was not in her apparel.</p>
<p>Q. Where had she concealed it?</p>
<p>Slogden. It was found in her body, the bag and money was all turned out in the watch-house; then the prisoner did not deny taking it.</p>

<p>They searched me in a very indecent manner, I picked the canvas bag up not far from the place where the gentleman and I were together; he gave me six-pence, I do not know that he dropped his purse; then he took it out of his purse.</p>
