I went to her lodgings to enquire about her: the people gave her a very bad character. When I came home, I missed these window curtains and a bed-tick. I went again in search for her. I found her near her lodging sitting in a room. I asked her how she came to leave my service; she said, I find you missed things, and I was afraid you should suspect me. I said, I suppose the plain truth is, you have robbed me; she said, yes, she had. She confessed to taking the goods; I then charged her with the counterpane, the tea-chest, and the curtains; she acknowledged she had stolen them. She told me she had pawned the counterpane at Mr. Rochford's in Bishopsgate-street; the window curtains at Mr. Davidson's at London Wall; and the tea-chest in Houndsditch.

I went down a little way; she wanted me to go lower down; I told her I would not: I began to feel about her for my watch; she said, what do you want to rob me? I said, no; I only want my watch again. Just as I spoke them words the two other prisoners came up to me; they came one of each side of me, and laid hold on each side my collar; there was another man came with them; they clapped something to my breast, which I believe were pistols.</p>
<p>Q. Which of them?</p>
<p>Wright. Both. I told them the girl had taken my watch, and I begged they would not use me ill; they bid me go a little farther along with them; I begged for my liberty; they pulled me farther down, and began to feel all about me; one of them put his hand into my fob, and took out my money; the other put his hand into my breeches pocket, and took out a shilling, which was all I had in that pocket; I had four guineas in my fob; then they laid me down upon my back, and they clapped something to my breast again; I begged they would spare my life and take all I had; they stript off my coat and waistcoat and took off my hat; then they said, Run for your life, or I will blow your brains out. I immediately ran, and I run against a post and knocked myself backwards; I got up again and ran a little way, and called the watch, and went back again to the place, but they were all gone; somebody looked out at the: window and said they knew the people.</p>
<p>Q. After the three men came up, what became of the woman?</p>
<p>Wright. She stood by; and begged they would take my life before they parted with me; as I lay upon my back I took particular notice of them. I went home to my lodgings, and in the morning I went to Sir

<p>Q. How did you describe them?</p>
<p>Wright. That one of them was about five foot and six or seven inches; the other a short man, with a long nose and black curled hair.</p>
<p>Q. Could you tell the dress they were in?</p>
<p>Wright. I told Sir John, that I believed they had both of them blue jackets on, but I could not be certain.</p>
<p>Q. What account did you give of the woman?</p>
<p>Wright. That she was a stout, bold, large featured woman, and had a manly look.</p>
<p>(Note, the prisoners answered this description.)</p>
<p>Q. What account did you give of the third man?</p>
<p>Wright. That he was quite a young fellow.</p>
<p>Q. He did nothing to you, did he?</p>
<p>Wright. He gave me a push on the back as they were driving me away.</p>
<p>Q. When were they taken?</p>
<p>Wright. The woman was taken the day after the robbery; I was not present at taking her; I saw her at the prison at White-Chapel.</p>
<p>Q. When were the men taken?</p>
<p>Wright. The day following; and I saw them before the bench of Justices at the Rotation at White-Chapel, on the Wednesday following.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know either of them?</p>
<p>Wright. Yes; very well.</p>
<p>Q. Did you get any of your things again?</p>
<p>Wright. No nothing at all. Josephs said before the Justice that if I could swear to him he would turn King's evidence. Simpson was taken first; I swore to him: when I had sworn to him, he asked the Justices to admit him an evidence; and said then he would help me to all my things again.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177009120007"/>Q. Where had you been that night?</p>
<p>Wright. I had been that day to a club-feast, at the Vine in the Minories. I was there from twelve o'clock to nine at night.</p>
<p>Q. Had you been drinking pretty freely?</p>
<p>Wright. No; very trifling.</p>
<p>Q. What became of you after nine o'clock?</p>
<p>Wright. Several of us went to a dancing in Spitalfields. I staid there some time; and as I was going back to the club, to call for two or three acquaintances, I met a young woman at Rosemary-lane, who told me she was afraid to go through Rosemary-lane by herself, and begged I would go with her; I walked with her to the top of Rosemary-lane; she leaned upon my arm; in coming back again I was robbed.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sober?</p>
<p>Wright. I was not perfectly sober, but I was very sensible.</p>
<p>Q. Was it light or dark?</p>
<p>Wright. There were several lamps just by where I was robbed.</p>
<p>Q. Was there light enough to distinguish a person's face?</p>

<p>Q. Was you a going with her when she took your watch?</p>

<p>Q.

<p>Wright. I am positive.</p>
<p>Q. Did you challenge them immediately when you first saw them?</p>
<p>Wright. Yes, I did. I never had a doubt.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. You had been drinking in that house a great while, was you not disguised?</p>
<p>Wright. I take care never to disguise myself with liquor.</p>
<p>Q. The woman that leaned upon your arm was not the prisoner, was she?</p>
<p>Wright. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was you going any where with that woman?</p>
<p>Wright. No.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath, did she not ask you to go to a house with her?</p>
<p>Wright. No, she did not.</p>
<p>Q. Was not you greatly surprized?</p>
<p>Wright. Greatly so.</p>
<p>Q. And would not that surprize take away your recollection?</p>
<p>Wright. I was not surprized by the woman, when I lay upon my back my surprize was more over.</p>
<p>Q. Had you been in no house after you left the club but the place you danced at, with no woman nor man?</p>
<p>Wright. No.</p>

I was informed, between twelve and one in the morning, on the 11th of August, that my wife was in the prisoner's shop. I went to his door, and I heard my wife and him talking how they would get warrants for me, and the like. I knocked at the door, and desired him to let my property come out.</p>
<p>Q. What did you mean by your property?</p>
<p>Creighton. I meant my wife. Soon after the prisoner called out watch three times. I said I would keep watch till the watchman came.

<p>Q. Did you tell him what kind of property?</p>
<p>Creighton. Yes; my wife, I asked the prisoner three times to open the door; at last he said, if you attempt to come in here I will blow your brain out. I took hold of the door, to open it, and the door flew open in my face. I had my hand upon the knocker; there are two steps to the house, and the door opens into the street. I stept up the first step, and the prisoner clapt a pistol to my forehead, and snap'd it; the watchman jumpt up and told him if he did not lay the pistol down, he would knock him down; then he laid it down upon the table. When he snap'd the pistol at my forehead, he struck me with it, that the blood ran down my face. I have the fear of it now. The prisoner bid me look if my wife was there or not. The watchman went about the room with his lanthorn; he told me she was behind the bed-stead. I bid her come home. I charged the watch with him, and he charged them with me, so we were both taken to the watch-house. After we had been sometime at the watch-house, the constable discharged us; he ran home directly. I went to drink a pint of purl, then I went to go home, my wife was along side of me then. I was obliged to go by the prisoner's house to go home. I saw the prisoner at his door, with a pistol in his hand; this was about an hour after he left the watch-house. I went on, he snap'd the pistol; he cock'd it again, and snap'd it the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177009120011"/> second time; it missed fire again; the passage is not above two yards wide; his house is opposite the end of the passage; when I got within about thirteen or fourteen yards of him, he directed it at me again, and then it went off. I heard the whistling of the ball or slug go by my ear.</p>
<p>Q. Can you tell when a ball passes you?</p>
<p>Creighton. Yes. I have been in the King's service, and have been among a good many. I saw

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I never robbed my master of any thing in my life. I have had fifteen hundred or two thousand pounds of my master's in my hands, and I never wronged him of any thing in my life. Mr. Clay told me he would not hurt me. I sold them on their account.</p>
<p>Mr. Noble. Mr. Clay told him, that if he made an ample confession of what he had robbed us of, he would be so favourable as not to touch his life, but that he would certainly transport him; he has robbed us of one hundred and seventy pounds worth of goods. We never had any dealing with this lady.</p>

I went out on Sunday the 26th of August, about five in the afternoon, and left only the prisoners in my house. I returned again about a quarter before eight, and found my servant was gone out. I waited about half an hour in the square. When the prisoner came to the door, I took the key from her to let myself in, and found the lock was only catched. After I had been at home some little time, I missed the things mentioned in the indictment; then I sent for several men as witnesses, and examined the house. There were no signs of any person having got in over the garden-wall; and the stairs, which were fresh cleaned, had not the marks of a foot upon them. When we came to the garret, we found two-chairs that had stood in the maid's room standing in the passage, under the trap-door, which was wide open, with two of the maid's boxes upon them. Two or three men went out at the trap-door, and there were no signs of any person's having been out there. I then accused the prisoner, who all along denied it. I have never seen any of the things since.</p>
