They dropped down, and one said, d - n her a b - h, she will not come. I said, Who will not come? One of them struck me; I called out for help. One ran up Church-yard-alley, the prisoner made up Fetter-lane. I ran after him, and called Stop thief! when in New-street square, he turned about, and attempted to strike me; then he ran again, and went against a man on horseback. He swore to me, D - n you, I'll stop thief you. He was stopped by a man, and we took him to

I sent for Mr. Bell, the constable, and we took him to the watch-house by St. Andrew's church. Just before he went in he dropped this wet linen. My apprentice took it up. The constable searched him in the watch-house, and found two silk handkerchiefs upon him which were dry, (the linen that he dropped was wet.) The prisoner said, Give me the handkerchiefs again, they are my own. They must get over a wall eight feet high to get into my yard. They had unbolted the gate on the inside to secure a retreat. It had been bolted a little before; my maid was hanging up wet linen to dry in a two pair of stairs room at the time. This linen may, or may not be my property; I cannot swear to it, not being marked. I don't know that any of my linen is marked.</p>

<p>Jer. Neal. I live in Ratcliff-highway. I lost the things laid in the indictment (mentioning them) on the 19th of December. I found one of my shirts on the prisoner's back, the evening Mr. Wyn stopped him.</p>
<p>Mr. Wyn. I keep a sale-shop. The prisoner came to my shop, and told me, he was an unfortunate man that had lost his ship in Yarmouth-roads. He appeared in a creditable manner. He brought this cardinal, and asked me a guinea for it. I said, You never bought it, or you would know better what to ask for it. He said, his wife bought it, and she was dead. I gave him seven shillings for it. Two or three days after, Mrs. Neal came to my house and described it. I shewed it her, and she swore to it. I said, if the man comes again, I will stop him. The prisoner came again, and I stopped him, and before the justice the prosecutor owned the shirt he had on; and the justice ordered him to take it off.</p>

I said, I had only two pence half-penny, and was a poor working man. I do not know the prisoner. The other was an Irishman, named Maden; he is an evidence. He rifled my pockets, and took my two pence halfpenny. The other person desired him not to take it. Maden said, D - n the bougre, it will serve me to buy a pint of purl. He had a stick in his hand. Then he looked at my legs, and saw I had an old pair of boots on. He bid me pull them off, and said, if I would not, he would. He pulled them off; I believe the other person at that time laid his hand on my shoulder; then Maden took my coat off, and said, D - n your eyes, you bougre, let us have the handkerchief from your neck.</p>
<p>Q. Did the other person assist?</p>
<p>Summer. No; he did not.</p>
<p>Q. Had he any weapon?</p>
<p>Summer. I did not see any thing in his hand; all the words I heard him say, was when Maden was pulling my boats off; then he said, Pull them off; make no words about it. The same night I met Maden in East Smithfield, with my boots on: I collar'd him; he struck me, and I struck him; we were up and down several times. At last he stripped himself out of his jacket, which I had hold of, and ran away. He was taken the next day by one of Justice Fielding's men.</p>

I gave the prisoner my shoes, he put them on, and I the boots. I was taken up the day after by the India-house, and the prisoner the same night, on suspicion of being

<p>Wil. Mylam. On the 26th of December, I was called out of my work-shop, and told I was robbed. Some of my neighbours brought the prisoner back; he would not stand search: I bid him go about his business. He went away, and they brought him back again in about five minutes time. They told me where my things were. I went with them into Old Gravel-lane, and saw my things lying in a shop on a counter. Then we took them to my house. I took the prisoner before Justice Camper, who made his mittimus to Newgate.</p>

<p>I buy old clothes about London. I was in Old-Gravel-lane; a woman called to me, to know if I would buy a looking-glass. I bought it for seven shillings and six-pence. I went into a shop to buy some tea, and desired the gentleman to let me put them there till I came back. I was going to buy some goods. I went to that broker's shop to buy a bedstead. We could not agree for it: there they took and searched me: nothing was found upon me. They offered to make it up if I would pay a guinea and a half, and I would not.</p>

I went home immediately, and found those things missing that are laid in the indictment; some of them we have found again at different pawnbrokers. I was informed somebody that belonged to the house did it; I had a suspicion of the prisoner. I took her up, and found a pair of my stockings on her legs; this was the 30th of January. She lodged over my kitchen. She denied the charge utterly. Mr. alderman Harley thought it a matter of little consequence; he then discharged her. She went to lodge at a particular friend's of my own mother's by which means we came to a farther knowledge. I took her up again; she then owned it, and by her directions I found at three different pawnbrokers a shirt and a handkerchief that I can swear to, four linen shifts, six linen aprons, six handkerchiefs, a pair of black stockings on her legs, two soosee handkerchiefs, a shirt, three yards and a half of linen cloth, and two napkins.</p>
<p>Mrs. Barker. I had been out and returned about five o'clock in the evening, on the 29th of January. I could not get in; the prisoner ran down, and asked me, how I did? While I was trying at the padlock, she pulled it and undid it: I went to go into the parlour, and found my door open, and the things in a confusion. I found the wood of my closet was broke, which I had locked at my going out. I missed the things laid in the indictment (mentioning them.) We have found them all but four handkerchiefs, and one apron, and one shift. She produced one shift and two napkins out of her drawers. (The things found produced and deposed to) They were found by her directions at three different pawnbrokers, except what she produced.</p>
<p>Wil. Windsor. On the 27th of January the prisoner pledged this piece of new cloth with me. (Holding it in his hand.)</p>
<p>The other pawnbrokers deposed the prisoner pledged the other goods with them.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>They came and told me they had a suspicion I had robbed them. I showed her my stockings on my legs, and told her I bought them in Field-lane. I went with her there, and the woman was frighted, and said, I did not buy them there. I was put in the Compter, and brought to be re-examined. I said, I had carried some things to pawn, to raise money for my husband. I did not open the door; but I took a bundle that was upon a chair. I shut the door after me. Mrs. Barker promised me I might make use of that bundle to fetch my things out of pawn.</p>

<p>Q. Does your warehouse join your dwelling-house?</p>
<p>Stevens. No; it is cross the yard from my dwelling house; it joins to my kitchen.</p>
<p>Q. Does any body sleep in that part?</p>
<p>Stevens. No; I missed some cheeses; there being a great quantity, I cannot tell how many were missing. My servant seeing mark of feet upon some coals, told me of it I went into the cellar, and saw it myself; they led to the hole where the jack-weight went down. I went into my warehouse above, and saw marks of feet on some cheeses. The prisoner Wild had lived with me about two months, and had been gone but the Sunday before. I suspected him. I ordered the watchman, if he saw any body about there, to secure them. On the Monday, the watchman called me up before twelve at night, and told me, he had got one of them. He had got a boy. I examined him if he was not concerned with Wild? He said, No, he never was; but he had told him, he could get up a hole and get things; and he had received some nutmegs from him. Then I went w ith the watchman to the woman's house at the bar, where Wild lived, and called him to get up; he was some time before he did. When I charged him, he cryed, and desired to speak with me backwards. He then told me he had taken a cheese. Soon after he said he had taken two, and that they were in that house. We found one in the cellar cut in two, and about three pounds of it gone. The man of the house declared his innocence; he went up stairs to his wife. The other cheese was found in his bed-room, but I was not by at the time.</p>
<p>Q. Why was not the man indicted, and not the woman?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. Wild charged her only, and said, she told him, she would find a secret place to put what he brought.</p>
<p>The watchman confirmed that of Wild's confession, and finding the two cheeses.</p>
<p>Stevens junior gave the same account his father had done.</p>
<p>The two prisoners denied knowing any thing of the cheeses.</p>

<p>Q. Did you know either of the prisoners before?</p>
<p>Evans. No; I had never seen either of them to my knowledge. I followed them, and called stop thief! Duncken turned about, and threatened to knock my brains out if I made a noise. I followed him at a distance, full the length of the street, behind, and saw him by the light of the lamps. There were very few people stirring: I met a man. I told him, that man had stole my hat. he went up to Duncken and told him, that man says you took his hat. Said Duncken, You see I have no hat about me. Said the man, then you had better stop and clear yourself. Then a watchman came up, and he was taken and carried to the watch-house.</p>
<p>Q. Did he run or walk?</p>
<p>Evans. I do not remember he ran; he walked a pretty quick pace.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it after you lost your hat, before you took the prisoner?</p>
<p>Evans. This might be ten or twelve minutes from first to last. I described the man that ran away with my hat, and my hat; and Carral was taken the Tuesday following by the same watchman. I was sent for before justice Welch; he had my hat on his head; I have it here.</p>

I made up towards him; but he being in another parish, I went no farther. I heard a dispute between the prisoner and him; the prisoner threatned to dash his brains out if he made any noise. After that I went and took Duncken into custody. The prosecutor said, he and another had robbed him of his hat. Duncken owned Carral and he had been together. We took him to the watch house. After that I met with Carral, knowing him before; and the prosecutor had described him. He made his escape out of a public house; but on the Tuesday night after, he was stripped to fight another man, and I took him. He had the prosecutor's hat, which he had put off with his clothes. I asked him how he came by that hat? He said, he had lost his own, and he found that in the street. coming up Holborn. At first he said, he would be evidence against Duncken; but afterwards said, he would clear Duncken, and himself also. I have known Carral many years; he and I went to school together.</p>
<p>Jos. Brown, another watchman, confirmed the evidence given by Chapman, as to the taking both prisoners, &c.</p>
<p>Duncken's Defence.</p>
<p>I never saw my prosecutor in my life before; he was coming without a hat on. I walked along; he came behind me, and said, You are the man that took my hat off. I said, Here is a watchman, I am willing to go with you to him. I know nothing at all about it.</p>
<p>Carral's Defence.</p>
<p>I got the hat accidentally, coming home. I had lost my own. I found it in Holborn, and I made bold to wear it.</p>

<p>Emanuel. I can't tell, because I have got a great family.</p>

<p>Emanuel. Yes, sometimes.</p>
<p>W. Lovit. I was at work in my master's shop in Gutter-lane. I heard this Jew cry out, stop thief! I ran out. He said, There he goes, that is he, pointing to the prisoner. I ran; the cloth lay on the ground; I trod upon that, and followed the prisoner into a court; there I took him. I brought him back to this Emanuel; the Jew. He told me, he saw the prisoner take the piece of cloth out of Mr. Saxby's shop. The prisoner said, he was not the thief. The Jew said, You are the thief; I saw you take it out, and give it to another man at the door.</p>
<p>Q. to Emanuel. You are sworn to tell the truth; declare it as you ought to do.</p>
<p>Emanuel. I can't say I saw the prisoner's face when he took it.</p>

I had sent a little girl for some beer: she, on coming in, said, she met a woman with some bottles in a tub, coming up out of my cellar. I went out, and there was the prisoner. She had them in a tub with which she cries about for kitchen-stuff. I desired her to bring them back; there were thirteen of them. She said, she had bought them of a servant. She would not go back for some time. She persisted she bought them. I sent for a constable: then she began to cry, and fell on her knees, and implored mercy, and acknowledged the fact. She said, she was necessitated to go down into the cellar to make water, and the D - l tempted her to steal the bottles. That door is usually open in the day-time.</p>

On Friday seven-night in the afternoon, a gentleman came to me, and asked me, whether or not there were some people in the information about the coiners, that were not taken? I could not inform him. I took him to the justice: he made information against the prisoner's wife and one Morris. He imagined the prisoner to be Morris. There was a warrant granted. He said to me, You must use some stratagem, or you will never get into his house. There is a door to go in under an arch-way, and when people knock at the door, he looks out at a window and fees who it is, before he will let any body in. I made up a piece of paper in the form of a letter, and sent Mr. Taylor with it as a porter. I said, Knock at the door, and if he looks out, tell him there is a letter for him. Mr. Taylor went and knocked at the door: the prisoner looked out at the window, and asked who was there. Said Taylor, Sir, is your name Martin? He said, yes. Said Taylor, I have a letter for you. The prisoner came and unbolted the door, but it was fastened with a chain, so that it opened about nine inches. I put my knee in, and said, Mr. Martin, open the door. He would not for a long time; but at last he did. I went in, and up stairs, and in searching on the top of a shelf in a closet, I found this plate, all but the milk-pot and tea-tongs. (A silver half pint, a silver pint, a silver pepper-castor, a milk-jug, a punch-ladle, five table spoons, tea-tongs and boat, produced in court.) The others I found in the house.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. These I believe to be my property. Here is a private mark which I made myself on the half pint. I don't absolutely swear to the spoons; they have taken the cyphers almost out. I have one here which matches with them, which they did not take, which makes the half dozen complete. Here is a bruise on the milk-pot, by which I can swear to that. I can swear to all but the spoons; and I believe them to be mine.</p>

On the 15th of January last, I carried him home a new wig, between ten and eleven in the forenoon; he lived on Millbank, Westminster. There was a man they called Arnold, and a good deal of plate on the table, and a pair of scales and weights. There was a pint pot, a half pint pot, some spoons, some foreign pieces of silver, and broken buckles. This person they called Arnold, asked five and eight-pence an ounce for it. Mr. Martin said, it was too much. At last they agreed for five and six-pence, and Mr. Martin paid him the money upon the table. Then I tried the wig on, and he paid me for it, and I gave him a receipt. I was served with a subpoena to come here. He paid me a guinea for the peruke; and I believe he has the receipt in his pocket now.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know that Arnold before?</p>
<p>Lee. I believe I have seen him before. I did not then know his name; but when he was going away, the prisoner said, Mr. Arnold, I wish you a good morning.</p>

<p>Q. How did you find out this prosecutor?</p>
<p>Bond. By a hand-bill from Goldsmith's-hall, that he had had dispersed about. I could perceive the spoons had cyphers on them, but were in part filed out, which made me suspect the plate was stolen; so I brought that and the prisoner away together. When he was examined about the plate, he did not mention a word about buying it of Arnold; neither did he mention being in company with this last witness. All he said was, he desired Sir John would discharge the woman that he lived with: he said, she knew nothing of his affairs.</p>

I came home from money-gathering on the 6th of January about nine in the evening. I went to the Coach and Horses in Whitechapel; there was the prisoner and another woman with her; they asked me to drink; after I had drank, the prisoner asked me to treat her with a dram: I told her I had no money. She asked again; I told her, if she would get me change for a guinea I would treat her with a dram. I gave her a guinea; she went and brought some change, but it was not right; she said it

<p>Q. Had you been drinking before?</p>
<p>Edwards. I had had two glasses of brandy and part of a pint of hot. I was a little in liquor, but not much. She saw I had other money in my purse. I came out there, and was going home; she followed me, and said she wanted to speak to me. I went up

She began fumbling about my breeches: then she said, There is somebody coming: then she went away about a couple of yards and came directly. After some little time she said again there was somebody coming, and ran to the corner of Petticoat-lane: as soon as she got to the lane, I clapped my hand to my pocket and missed my pocket-book; then I felt in my breeches-pocket and missed my money.</p>
<p>Q. What money did you lose?</p>
<p>Edwards. In all it was 20 l. 6 s. 10 d. It is impossible to tell what species of money it was, I had some at one house and some at another, and gave change at some places. I know I had fifteen guineas, two moidore, two half guineas, a six-and-ninepenny piece, and two quarter guineas. I ran to the corner of Petticoat-lane, and looked about Whitechapel, but could see nothing of her. Then I went to the Three Jolly Weavers; there I found her and the other girl. I took her to the Coach and Horses, and told her she had robbed me. She said she had not seen me, and had never been out of the Coach and Horses with me, and had just then come from the Coach and Horses. I know I had my money in my pocket after I got to the corner of Petticoat-lane. Nobody came near me but she.</p>
<p>Q. What pocket was your money in?</p>
<p>Edwards. It was in my right hand breeches-pocket. I will not say the pocket was buttoned. I never got a farthing of it again. She never owned it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>He came in at the Coach and Horses, and asked me if I would drink part of a pint of purl: after that he asked me to drink a dram of gin. I would have rasberry. He gave me a guinea to change. I got change and gave it him. He said he lived with Mr. Matthews, a butcher. He went out and came in again, with his face all over mud, and said he believed I had robbed him. He knocked me down. I asked what he meant by that; he insisted upon my being searched. I was searched by a constable, and nothing found upon me.</p>
