All was fast over night; and I found the bar of the kitchen window in the area forced up, and the shutter open, and the sash up, when I got up, which was about eight in the morning. The maid got up a little before, and came and called me. We missed a large quantity of plate, to the amount of two or 300 l. worth, which we have not been able to discover since. I missed a pair of leather breeches that hung up in a back room by the kitchen.

<p>Q. What is become of Fanning?</p>
<p>Kenney. He is gone to sea. We went out a little after eleven at night. We went up and down the Strand, and at last pitched upon this house; I don't know the name of the street; it is within two or three streets of Hungerford-Market. This was on a Sunday night, but it was the Monday morning that the robbery was done. We got in at the area gate; we were disturbed before it was done; I think it was Fanning that broke the window shutter. I ran through a court for fear of the watchman, and had not an opportunity of returning for some time; when I returned it was transacted. It was dark, we could hardly find our way back again. Fanning brought me some of the plate, and handed it over the rails.</p>

There was Mr. Smith shewed me part of a table-spoon, and asked me if I knew it? I said, Yes, it is mine; here is my crest upon it; said he, a woman brought the bowl to me to sell; it appeared to have been fresh broke. I said to my maid, Do you miss a spoon? She said, she washed them up but just now. (The spoon produced in two pieces, and a fellow to it.) The crests agree, they both are my property. The prisoner is a woman that takes the ashes away from gentlemens chambers for the cinders. She used sometimes to assist my servant; I have given her 2 s. a week besides her victuals, for these last two or three months.</p>

I examined her how she got it; she said, she found it among some cinders. I said, it appeared to be fresh broke. I desired she would pull the other part of it out of her pocket. She stood to it a good while that she found it. Then I asked the other woman where she did business? She said, in the Temple. I said, if you do not go and enquire about, I'll have you committed. Then the prisoner took me to her own room, and took the handle of the spoon up, and gave it me.</p>

<p>Hastenny. I awaked about five.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know she went away about three?</p>
<p>Hastenny. The hostler told me so. When I awaked I missed seven guineas, two half guineas, and a canvas bag. I counted my money before I went to bed, but not before her. I had sixteen guineas when I came to town, and I had paid a grocer eight guineas about twelve o'clock, in St. John's-street. I never had my purse out after that; I had 6 s. out of the eight guineas, which I put in another pocket; and I felt my purse in my pocket when I went to bed.

The constable searched her, and found a guinea and three and sixpence, and eighteen pennyworth of halfpence in her pocket; and in her room we found anew pair of stays, and a new handkerchief. We took her before the justice, he committed her for farther examination; and when I came up to town again, she was taken before him again; and after that, the man where she lodged brought the purse and five guineas. (Produced in court.) I can swear to the purse or canvas bag, I bought it at Coventry; it is a double purse, here are two parts in it. Then the prisoner owned she took it.</p>

In about four or five days after, in removing a table, a drawer sell out, and a snuff-box sell out and five guineas. I carried them to Justice Girdler; they were in this yellow bag.</p>
<p>Rich. Maylin. I am a constable. This bag and five guineas were delivered to me. At first the prisoner denied ever seeing the man.

On the 17th of April, 1768, I heard a noise in the passage on that morning, between one and two o'clock, crying out, Looms! Looms! Looms! Broad Looms! Blast your eyes and limbs, get your pistols ready! Get your pistols ready! They were then in the inside of the house in the passage. There is a right-hand door and a left-hand door in the passage; the right-hand door leads to another house; they began breaking that door. One of them said, Blast you, Cox says it is the left-hand door. Cox was a journeyman in my house, and had left the outward door open for them, as I found afterwards; after that he turned evidence against Perrin. They began blasting their eyes and limbs, and called, Open the door! In about a minute they burst my room door open; two of them came in first; they turned the chairs and table up in the room, and got immediately on my bed, one with a pistol, the other with a cutlass. He with the cutlass was by me, the other was by my wife. I saw the glimmer of a light, and said, I would arise. He with the cutlass gave me three blows, one on my back, the other on my shoulder, and the other below my elbow; I was as black as my hat from my shoulder down to my elbow; this was as I raised myself up. The other kept with his pistol to my wife's head. They cried out, D - n them, blow their brains out if they stir. I was made to lie down again. I perceived them go to the drawer, where were four 10 l. bank notes, and one 20 l. thirteen guineas in gold and 17 s. in silver, and a crown in half-pence; they took it all, and seventy guineas worth of ribbon; there were an hundred pieces
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177006300010"/> of it. The next day I went to Sir John Fielding and got a warrant, and took up Perrin. We went to see for the prisoner, but he got off to Dublin, with another man that stands indicted with him. Since that I advertised him, and he was taken at Coventry. I particularly know the prisoner's voice, because he formerly worked for me. He has a very odd voice; I could know it from an hundred people. He went by three names. I went to see if it was the same; I saw it was he, so I said no more. There was a light when they took the things, but they covered me with a pillow. I had heard the prisoner's voice before they came into the room, when they cried, Looms, blast your eyes and limbs! My wife is ill, or she would have been here; Cox is at Coventry now, I imagine.</p>

Between one and two in the night my little dog made a prodigious noise. I opened my room door, and came out and listened upon the stairs; I cannot say I heard any thing but my dog. I went in again and shut my door, thinking it was something in the street that disturbed the dog. After that the dog made more noise; then I came down. They had broke in at the window, and broke my bureau open, and taken several things away; the windows were unbolted and left open; they had taken away a counterpane, three table-cloths, a gun, and other things.

On the 14th of this month, a little after two in the morning, I heard a noise in my house; I opened my room door and peeped over the banmisters of the stairs; I had a gun by me, having been surprized almost every night. I found my two double doors were both wide open; I heard a whispering in my parlour. The first thing I saw was a man come out of my parlour, with this was candle in his hand, endeavouring to come up stairs. I rang the bell for a gentleman that lay above, to come down. He ran down in his shirt. The thieves ran over the bank by the water-works, and turned down towards Bagnigge Wells. I ran down and saw four of them; two went first, and two after them. One of the first had a bundle in his hand, and one of the other two had a bundle. I said to the gentleman, There they are; whip your clothes on, I will pursue them. While he went up to dress himself, I got my gun in my hand, and went behind them all the way to Bunhill-Row. Just by the French pest-house there was a carpenter coming out of his house to go to work, a little before four o'clock. I said, My friend, for God's sake assist me; I have a suspicion of them four men robbing my house. He called to the watch; the watchman ran after them; one made his escape, we took three of them in Bunhill-Row.

<p>I was drinking with the other prisoner; we met the evidence about seven or eight in the evening, and we went to the Green Man on Saffron-hill. We staid drinking till it was late; we could not get in; we all four went down Grays-Inn-lane together.

On the 10th of December, at night, my wife heard a noise, and awaked me about two; she said she thought somebody had got into the house; I thought it was the horses in the stable, and we took no notice of it; but coming down in the morning, we found the house was broke open: all was safe when we went to bed. They had broke in at the parlour window; the shutter was broke open, the screw that was to keep the sash down was forced up and bent: my bar was broke, and a box of halfpence taken away. I missed six silver spoons, a pound of tea, a bottle of gin, a red leather trunk, and some table linen. I never got any of my things again but the trunk. I never saw the prisoners till I saw them now. The trunk and an iron crow, which they left in the bar, are here. (Produced in court). The crow about fourteen inches long.

<p>Pearce. I am a founder. I cannot tell what the prisoners, or Tudor were bred to. We went all round Paddington; the watchman disturbed us.

<p>Pearce. They belonged to us all; we joined to buy them; then he lifted Wharton in, and then shut the shutter to. I opened the door, he came in at that, and helped break the bar. Tudor was at the door all the time; we generally leave one without to watch.

<p>I was here last sessions, indicted for buying stolen goods.

<p>Pearce. Underwood used to tell me he would have me, what they call hobbled, and I was afraid of my life. I was taken up about three weeks ago; then I gave information, as I wanted to clear myself.</p>

I had seen it was fast over night about ten, when I went to bed. My wife was alarmed by the noise of breaking the beaufet between one and two in the night, in the lower parlour fronting the street, close by the window: we lay, in the back parlour. She got out of bed and left me asleep. She opened the door and there saw a man in the fore parlour. He d - d her, and said he would blow her brains out; upon which I awaked, and came out into that parlour, but he was gone. I found my bureau and book-case open, which were shut over night, but not locked; all the drawers were taken out: they had taken away a silver watch, capped, and jewel, a coral, set in silver, two guineas, a pair of knee-buckles. I found a pistol, an iron crow, and a chissel lying in the window. (Produced in court).</p>

<p>Pearce. We reached over the rails with our iron crows. After I was in, Underwood handed Wharton in. I struck a light, and Underwood put the shutters to. We took a silver watch, that hung over the chimney-piece. I took two guineas in gold in a metal box; a child's coral, and a pair of knee-buckles; and, in breaking open the beaufet, we heard a noise in the back parlour, and made our escape out at the window, and left an iron crow, a chissel and pistol, in the house. We both ran home with the things we had got, and Underwood made away with them. When the door was opening I ran away first; Wharton said something about d - ning, but I was out.

On Saturday the 19th of May instant, I kept my door open till pretty near twelve at night; (as my business runs pretty late on Saturday nights) then I bolted and locked my door, and fastened my window shutters; after that my wife and I were sitting by the fire side till between twelve and one: we heard the window light breaking; that was the glass over the door. I then judged my house was going to be attacked; I said to my wife, If my house is attacked, we had better wait till they enter, for may be they may, at another time attack us, when we are not so properly prepared. I proposed to stand it till they entered: we retired from the shop into the parlour; then I heard them picking the glass out of the frame, and it was falling down piece after piece. I pulled off my shoes, and went up stairs and brought down my musket and sword; I had kept my piece loaded sometime; as several houses near me had been broke open lately, I judged they would soon attack me. I put a little fresh powder in the pan, and rubbed the hammer. After watching some time, and hearing pieces of glass still falling, I heard, about one o'clock, a brushing sort of a noise; I judged they were then entering into the house. I said I believed they were then come in. I stood watching, with my parlour door in my hand. I had an inward door to prevent people from coming into the shop; that was double locked. I said, I am sure he is in, for I hear him move backwards and forwards in the passage. I had double locked the passage door. I presented my piece low to hit his legs, not to kill him. I snapped it, but it did not go off; finding that, I pricked him with my sword in his left arm.</p>
<p>Q. How had he got in?</p>
<p>Andrews. He got in at the fan light over the door. He informed me afterwards they put him in with his feet foremost. My wife had the candle, but, upon my opening the door, I knocked it out of her hand. The prisoner, finding my sword had pricked him, surrendered, and said he would tell me all he knew. I got him in my arms and held him fast. My wife went out at the back door and called murder, thieves! and some neighbours came: Mr. Gosset came to the door, and said, Let me in; and after that came another neighbour: there came in a man, a stranger, that I did not like. As soon as a light came, I heard something fall, which was this snuff-box, (producing one, with tinder in it) which I believe was put in over the door. I asked the prisoner what he would discover, and how long he had been in the gang; he said twelve months, or upwards. I asked him how many there were of the gang; he said fourteen or fifteen; I asked where they resorted; he said upon Salt-petre-bank; I asked him how many were in the gang that attacked my house; he said four besides himself. When Mr. Gosset and Mr. Stockbridge were come in, I asked these questions again, and then he gave the same answers. I thought it necessary to be upon him as soon as ever he was in; had I given him time to have opened the door, the rest might have come in, and been too powerful for me.</p>

On the 20th of this month (Which was on a Sunday) I lay out of town; and as I was coming home in the morning I met my warehouseman: I was surprised to see him, supposing something wrong had happened: he told me, when he came to work he found the street-door open, and the marks of feet in the garden, and he suppose my apprentice, the prisoner Cook, with somebody else, had done it. When I came home, I found my desk had been forced open. I judged, by a large pair of the scissars which lay by, the screws were forced out of the desk; the lock was still locked. I examined my desk and papers: I found every drawer of papers had been tumbled over, which was, I suppose, to look for bank notes: there were a great many notes of hand, which I found they would not take away. I left in a canvas bag, on the Saturday night, nine or ten guineas, which they took away: there were guineas and half guineas. I-missed forty half-crowns, two crown pieces, two silver dollars, a remarkable medal, a silver pint mug from the kitcken, and four tea-spoons. Cook was missing; he had been my apprentice about two years (he is about eighteen or nineteen years of age): then my two apprentices went in pursuit of him; they brought him home about nine or ten in the morning: there was found upon him eleven half-crowns, and two half-guineas, I believe.</p>

I went down, and found my street door open, which I saw fast at eleven o'clock, before I went to bed, and the chain up cross it. I found the lock of my compting-house broke. I missed a 3 l. 12 s. piece a French crown, a Spanish dollar, a Prussian six-dollar, two English crown pieces, and five, six, or seven pounds in loose silver; there might be six or seven half crowns, two or three half moidores, a 6 s. 9 d. or two, and several five-and-three-pences, two four-and-six-pences; here were some half guineas, three three shilling papers of halfpence, a green silk purse; out of a
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177006300017"/> closet, in the same room I missed five large silver table-spoons with a crest-upon them, and the letter W on the back of the bowls, two silver tea-spoons, not marked, a little pair of sugar-tongs, and two pair of dog-skin shoes. The prisoner lived servant with me, and had been discharged from me about nine months before that time; he had been at my house the day before, to see his late fellow-servants; they all had a suspicion of him. I dispatched my servants to see for him, one went one way, and the other another; they took him the same day, the 12th of May, with some of the things upon him. I saw him searched; he had one of my pairs of shoes on his feet, and a pair of my metal buckles in his shoes. I asked him what was become of my silver spoons and tongs? He said, they were at the lodgings of a girl that he had kept company with, in Wentworth-street. The constable went there; it is between Whitechapel and Spitalfields; the prisoner went with him. Then we suspected he must have the money or the purse about him; and in his breeches we found 5 l. 2 s. a French crown that I swear to, by having a mark upon it, two English crowns, a Spanish dollar, a Prussian six-dollar, a 3 l. 12 s. a six and nine-pence, a four and six-pence, three thirteen and six-pences, five guineas, three half guineas, two quarter guineas, concealed under his ham, and fifteen shillings and six-pence in silver, loose in his waistcoat pocket. The prisoner owned in the presence of six or seven people, that he took all these things out of my desk. I asked him how he broke the desk open? He said, with a small sugar-chopper that lay in the window; and it appeared to be done by such an instrument. When I went to bed, it lay in the farther window, and in the morning it lay in the window next to the desk.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask him how he got out?</p>
<p>Walker. He said he went out at the house door.</p>
<p>Q. How long had he lived with you?</p>
<p>Walker. He lived with me about four months.</p>
<p>Q. Could he speak English? (He pretended not to understand English.)</p>
<p>Walker. I have heard him speak English three or four years ago; he lived servant where I served my time.</p>

I went a second time, and saw him in the street, going along, and the servant after him. I ran and laid hold of him, and said, You are my prisoner, and brought him to a public house near Whitechapel church, into a back room. Mr. Walker came. I searched the prisoner, and found a pair of shoes and a pair of metal buckles in them. Mr. Walker asked the prisoner, what he had done with the spoons and the money; he said, he left them in a drawer in his lodging. I went with him to his lodging, and searched all the drawers, but found none; but upon a half-tester bed I found five tablespoons, two tea-spoons, and a pair of tea-tongs, all silver, in a handkerchief. Then I went to the Minories, where he said he had sold a pair of buckles to Mr. Harding; then I came back to the public house. We took the prisoner's shoes off, and opened the right knee of his breeches, after that the left, then the silver and gold sell out in a green purse; I took them up, and laid them on the table before him.</p>

The prisoner at the bar was laying in the same bed. Seeing her in bed, I said, I would not go to bed, but I would lay upon the bed. I laid down without pulling off my clothes. I soon felt her hand in my breeches. I removed my money into my coat-pocket, and laid upon it.</p>
<p>Q. Did she see you move it?</p>
<p>Smith. Not as I know of; my money was in a little leather purse, and that in a large one. I felt her hand going to one side. I put my hand in my pocket, and found my money was gone. She was going off.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to sleep?</p>
<p>Smith. No, I never slept at all; I was not in the room above half an hour, and I had not laid down above ten minutes before I missed my purse. I laid hold of her when I missed it, and a man came up and sell to beating me about for some time, and in struggling we all fell down stairs together. Then the woman of the house came and beat me with a poker about the head. They turned me out into the street, and I was knocked down once in the street. I begged of a man to let me be in his house, or I did not know but I should have been killed. I went to bed, and there lay till morning. The next morning a man asked me what was the matter? I told him. He said, Could you know the person that took your money? I said, I should. He went into the house, and brought the prisoner out directly. I knew her again. He ransacked her; what he found, I do not know. I was told she had money in her stocking, but I never could know the truth of it; I never saw it since. There was five guineas, a six shilling and nine pence, and a nine shilling piece. There was some silver, but I do not know how much.</p>
<p>Q. How came you by so much money?</p>
<p>Smith. I saved it at my labour; it is what I could save out of two years wages; I lived with a farmer.</p>
<p>Q. What was your business in London?</p>
<p>Smith. I came to seek for work.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sober?</p>
<p>Smith. I was very sensible and very sober; they behaved very well till after I was up stairs.</p>
<p>Q. Did you feel her take your money?</p>
<p>Smith. No; I felt her hand in my fob. When she was before the Justice she said, she knew nothing of me or my money either.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I never saw the man in my life till the day I was taken up before the bench.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Are you sure this is the woman that took your money?</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177006300019"/>Prosecutor. I am very sure; the blood that came from me by their beating me was upon her clothes in the morning when she was taken up. I bled very much; I could hardly see out of my eyes.</p>

<p>Ward. I have known him about two years. He came down the yard in a poor dishabille; he said he had been sick, but I found since he had been in Tothilfields Bridewell.

I was a friend to him.</p>
<p>Q. Why do you charge him?</p>
<p>Ward. I found all his clothes which he had on under the manger, and he was not to be found. I was told he was an acquaintance of Ogilvie's. I went to Tybern, expecting I should see him when Ogilvie was executed; there I met with him. He had none of my things on. I got a constable and charged him; he confessed he had pawned my coat to Mr. Jones, in Westminster. I went there and found it. (Produced and deposed to.)

<p>Mr. Mills. I live in Cold Bath Fields, I am a carpenter and broker. The prisoner brought this measure to me last Saturday, between one and two o'clock, in a bag.

He said, I suppose you will give me no more than the price of old copper, 9 d. a pound. I said, Honest friend, how came you by it, it is a regular gallon measure? He said, it was his own property, and I should have it very cheap. I said, I was of opinion it was stole, how long have you had it? He said, he had had it some time, he bought it at Camberwood, (I suppose meaning Camberwell) for four shillings and a pint.

<p>Q. How did they get into your house?</p>
<p>Pryer. They got in over the door. They had struck in a large pane of glass; some of it flew four or five yards into the passage; it seemed to have been done by one blow: there was blood upon it. I missed about forty watches. My servant told me he found the door unbolted. About a week, or ten days after, Mr. Brebrook and another man, came to my house, and told me the prisoner was taken at Rochester. I found fourteen of my watches in the prisoner's house. They are only in the inside cases. (Produced in court ). They have all my name and numbers upon them, and the Arabick characters for figures. I have the outside cases here to them. (Produced in court). The prisoner told me, if I would get him the King's pardon, he would discover the whole of what I had lost. I did not promise him that I would. I took him before Sir

<p>Prosecutor. I am sure it could not be broke at or after five that morning, for I lay awake from that time, and if it had been done then I must have heard it; my room comes over the passage. We found drops of blood about the passage, and they had taken an apron of the maid's to wipe the blood; it was found bloody. I suppose they cut their hands with breaking the glass.</p>
