<interp inst="t17720219-1-person36" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I had been up to Middlerow, Holborn, on the 25th of last month. Coming back about three o'clock, I went into the Horse-shoe, a public house in Holborn. I saw there the prisoner, the accomplice, and another who is not taken, they were drinking together; while I was drinking my beer, they asked me where I was going; I said, to Leaden-hall. They asked me to drink with them. They said they were going that way, and asked me if we should have a coach among us. I said, I did not mind it much. One went into Smithfield and ordered a coach, and instead of going to Leaden-hall, they carried me up Long-lane and into Goswell-street, and from thence to the Duke's-head at Islington. I said we were going wrong; they said, No, it all came into one road. Then they brought me back to the old Sun-dial just by Swan-alley; there we went in and had a pot of beer, which I paid for; it was then between six and seven o'clock. The woman of the house would have had me lay there that night. They said, I came in with them, and should go with them; when we came to that house they sent the coach away.</p>
<p>Q. Who paid for the coach?</p>
<p>Gates. It cost me a pot of beer and six-pence. After we had drank a pot of beer, we came out of that house; as soon as I got out of the door they said, this is your way, pointing down the Rope-walk,

As soon as they had got my purse, they ran away down Swan-alley; I got up and pursued them.</p>
<p>Q. Did you call out when they robbed you?</p>
<p>Gates. I durst not; I was afraid of my life.</p>
<p>Q. What had you in your purse?</p>
<p>Gates. Fourteen shillings within a few half-pence; I had counted it about two or three hours before.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the prisoner was one of them?</p>
<p>Gates. Yes.</p>
<p>Gates. Was you sober?</p>
<p>Gates. I had drank a little, but I was sober.</p>
<p>Court. Consider, this is a heavy charge you bring against these people; are you very certain the prisoner is one of them?</p>
<p>Gates. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What place is this rope-walk? is it a thoroughfare?</p>
<p>Gates. Yes. I ran after them, and called out, Stop thief! but they got out of my sight presently. I met only a man and a woman there.</p>
<p>Q. You was sober enough to run?</p>
<p>Gates. Yes; and I had a hand-basket upon my arm, that I had carried some sowls in from my master.</p>
<p>Q. Why did the woman want you to lay at the alehouse?</p>
<p>Gates. She would have me lie there, because she thought I was in bad company, as I was a countryman.</p>
<p>Q. Where do you live?</p>
<p>Gates. In Essex.</p>
<p>Q. Are you not pretty well acquainted with London streets?</p>
<p>Gates. I have been at Leadenhall-market, but I am not much acquainted with London.</p>
<p>Q. Had you pulled your purse out while you was in their company?</p>
<p>Gates. Yes, I had, to pay my reckoning.</p>
<p>Jonathan Shilcock. The prisoner, his brother John and I were drinking at the Horse-shoe and Chequer on Snow-hill, we had two pints of beer before the prosecutor came in; he called for a pint of beer, and asked me to drink. He said, he liked a good hearty fellow; that he had got 8 s. in his pocket, and if we had a mind to go and have a frolick, he would spend it upon us. He told me he had a cart in Whitechapel or Leadenhall-market; I said, he had best go through Smithfield. He was in liquor, and did not care to walk, so we went all together to Smithfield; there we took a coach. We ordered the coachman to stop at the Black Horse in Long-lane, and I think we had a pot of beer. There was one
<persName id="t17720219-1-person37"> George Sweatman

I lodge at the prisoner's mother's, and have known him these four years. I never saw Gates before. We took this Sweatman into the coach, and the prisoner's brother got upon the box. We ordered the coachman to drive up Goswell street to Islington. We went to the Turk's head (I believe it is) The prosecutor paid 6 d. and the prisoner or the other man, paid the other 6 d. for the coach. We discharged the coach there, and the coachman went into the rank. We staid there half an
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177202190004"/> hour, and had a pot of beer and half a pint of gin. Then we called the same coach out of the rank again. We stopped at the Pyed Bull coming down Islington; there we had half a pint of aniseed, which the prisoner and his brother paid for between them. From thence we went to the Gun in Goswell-street, where we had a pint of aniseed. Then we went to Swan-alley, where we discharged the coach. We all four went into a public house at the corner, I don't know the sign; we had a pot of beer, which the prosecutor paid for. We staid there about a quarter of an hour; the prosecutor was not willing to go out of the house; we told him it was a house where they enlisted people for the East-India service, and he would be trepanned; he was so fuddled he could hardly stand. We all four went out together; the prosecutor wanted to go into Bishopsgate-street or Whitechapel; we told him it would be as near to go down the Rope-walk. When we had got about two or three yards down the Rope-walk, he was not willing to pay his reckoning.</p>
<p>Q. You said he paid for the pot of beer and other things?</p>
<p>Shilcock. He did not pay his share; we had liquor at other houses which he did not pay towards; we all got about him and held him, I can't say which held him; there was the prisoner, his brother, Sweatman, and myself.</p>
<p>Q. Was he pushed down?</p>
<p>Shilcock. No; he was pushed up against the wall; there was a hole in the bottom of his purse, and a shilling or so might drop out; there was 9 s. 6 d. I believe, and a bad shilling in the purse; they held him while I took the purse out of his pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see his money at any time before this?</p>
<p>Shilcock. Yes, I saw him pull his purse out at the Duke's Head at Islington. When I took his purse, I told the other three to come to me at the Magpie, Clerkenwell, to share the money.</p>
<p>Q. Did Gates pursue you?</p>
<p>Shilcock. I saw no more of him till I was taken the next morning, near Hicks's-hall; I surrendered myself to the watchman. We shared the money among us at the Magpie, Clerkenwell-green.</p>

<p>Plato. Yes, very sober. We watched at the house in the morning, and

<p>I don't know what I did; I was quite in liquor; it cost me four or five shillings that day. I could have had some friends here if I had expected my trial to come on.</p>

<p>Plato. Not in liquor.</p>
<p>Q. How was the prisoner when you took him?</p>
<p>Plato. He was sober.</p>

I ordered one of the samples to be cut off the pattern book, and sent it round to the piece-brokers, to desire them to stop it if it should be offered to them. There had been none offered that night; I sent again next morning, and one Mr. Davis said some had been offered him in samples; that the man was to come again with the whole quantity, and then he would stop him; the 30th was Thursday. On the Tuesday following, one Mr. Teage told me a person had offered to sell him some silk; as we had sent to stop twist, he thought it might be mine. I went to his house, and the prisoner came in while I was there. He said he had been in search of the persons he bought it of, to shew that he came honestly by it, but could not find them. I asked him if he had ever sold any thing in Bedfordbury before; he said, no. I mentioned Mr. Davis's name; he said, no. I then desired him to walk with me to Mr. Davis's; he made no objection, but went with me; just before he came to the door, he said, he did recollect Mr. Davis, for he had bought a parcel of twist at the same time that he bought the silk, and had sold it to Mr. Davis. We went into Mr. Davis's shop, and Mrs. Davis said they had bought the twist two days before I sent; and that her husband bid her say she had not bought it; he was not at home.

<p>- Teage, who is a taylor and piece-broker in Bedfordbury, deposed that he offered some silk to him for sale; that suspecting it was stolen, he stopt it; that the prisoner went away to bring the person of whom he bought it; that then he went and informed Mr. Walker of the circumstance, who came to his shop, where he saw the prisoner.</p>
<p>The prisoner said in his defence, that he gave a man a guinea and half for the twist at a public house, but that he had not seen him since. He called two people, who gave him a good character, but could not tell where he worked.</p>

<p>- Fletcher. I was on duty at Somerset-house on the 22d of January, and was stationed at the back of the Savoy. I saw two men, between ten and eleven o'clock at night at the water-side; I challenged them; they ran away at first; then one said to the other, D - n it, it is only the sentry. Then they came back; they passed me, and went among the craft. I know one to be Hart. I went back to my post, and in five minutes time the same two men came up, each had a sack on his shoulder; they went up towards the Strand; I followed them to the steps that went up to the Strand; Hart called me by my name. I said, I don't know you. He said, D - n it, don't you know Will. Hart? then I recollected it was a man I had been at a trial with. I gave information of it to Mr. Smith; in consequence of that, Hart was taken up; at first he denied it, afterwards he confessed that he and Field stole the oats, and sold them to a baker in St. Ann's-lane, Westminster.</p>
<p>The constable confirmed this evidence respecting the confession, and that they sold the oats and some sacks at the baker's, but that the sacks had no marks.</p>

I went out on the 20th of January, about three o'clock in the afternoon and returned again about six, when I saw West at the window, looking into the shop; when he saw me, he shifted his place, and went on the other side of the way. I went into my house and drank tea, and then, as I suspected West, I went to see what was become of him. Then I perceived that half a pane of glass was taken out; the pane was cracked before, and there were two pair of shoes gone, that lay against that pane. The hole was big enough for a man to put his arm in at.</p>
<p>Q. Are you certain that you lost two pair of shoes?</p>
<p>Smith. Yes; I am certain I lost two pair. I searched for the piece of glass, but could not find it. I saw no more of West that night. Then I went to the pawnbrokers, and informed them how I was robbed, and desired them to stop the shoes if they should be offered.</p>

On the Tuesday following a woman came to my shop with the shoes Mr. Smith had desired me to stop. I told her, I must stop her. She said, she had them of one West. She went away, and West came, and said he bought them in Rosemary-lane, for 3 s. 6 d. I told him I would enquire of Mr. Smith, before I delivered the shoes to him; and that if he, Mr. Smith, did not claim them, he should have them the next morning. The prisoner went away.</p>
<p>Q. to the prosecutor. Was the shop door shut?</p>
<p>Smith. Yes; but I took no particular notice of the window at that time, as my attention was fixed upon West.</p>
<p>White. West came again, and Kirk with him; but Kirk said nothing about the shoes.</p>
<p>Smith. When Kirk was before the Justice, he had a pair of pumps on, which I am positive are my property; they were remarkably thin; they were made to go abroad. I generally sell them for 5 s. 6 d. but they are not worth a shilling for this country's wear.</p>
<p>West's Defence.</p>
<p>I am a sailor. I happened to meet an old clothes-man in Rosemary-lane. I was going to sea again, and wanted some things; so I bought these shoes of him.</p>
<p>Kirk's Defence.</p>
<p>I am a cabinet-maker; I changed a pair of shoes with a shop-mate for these shoes. I told the Justice, if he would give me till Monday, I could find the man; but he committed me.</p>

They came down to my house in a coach, three or four together; Jennings, who went by the name of Gordon, was one; they staid about five or ten minutes, or half an hour; it is about three weeks or a month ago. Gordon and the two lads were saying in the tap-room, that these two girls had got away with the notes; they asked me to stop the girls. A little after that they were leaning their heads down, I saw two lottery tickets that were 20 l. prizes. I said, what is that? Gordon immediately went and thrust them into the fire.</p>
<p>Q. How could you distinguish that they were prizes?</p>
<p>Rooke. There was an L, a figure of 2, and an o, wrote in ink. After they had desired me to stop this girl, they wanted me to let them out. I said, No; having stopt her, I will stop you all; I will send for Mr. Noakes to take charge of you. The two women frequented the house before I kept it; they sold fish about, and paid their way very well; one of the sisters owes me a score now. I never heard any thing bad of them till this affair.</p>
<p>Court. Nor of Gordon, nor the boys, I dare say?</p>
<p>Rooke. No farther than frequenting my house.</p>
<p>Q. Was your house frequented by a great deal of such company as that?</p>
<p>Rooke. It was frequented by such company as that before I kept it.</p>
<p>Court. I hope the Justices have taken away your licence.</p>
<p>Rooke. It is already taken away. I can't help my house being bad.</p>
<p>Court. No; it is not the house that is bad; it is the keeper of it that is bad.</p>

Smith went to pick the gentleman's pocket; he came back, and said there was nothing but a pocket-book. We sent him back again, and he brought the pocket-book. I believe the gentleman had come from the play-house; it was just at the corner, coming out across the way. He brought it behind his coat; we took it from him, and went into Govent-garden market with it; we opened it; we saw some notes in it, and a locket fell out, that Mr. Noakes has; there is a true-lover's knot to it; I took it up, and put it into my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. How many went into the market to examine it?</p>
<p>Kenney. All of us. Gordon said, give it me; I said, I will keep it myself; I put it in my pocket. He said, let's go to Westminster. We went to the Oak in Thieving-lane. Gordon saw Graham at the Hope, and we all went with her; she opened the pocket-book, and saw some silver instruments in it, and she pulled out two lottery tickets. Upon searching farther, she said to Gordon, here is a 50 l. bank note; come and kiss me, my dear. The gentleman said there was a 25 l. note; I did not see that.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177202190014"/> She searched the book over, and said there were notes. We tore the book, and burnt it and the other papers; Gordon had the lottery tickets, and brought them to the Hope afterwards. Graham asked Gordon if he would have any beef for supper; she said, she had got a shilling. She went out with pretence to get some, but did not return again; and I saw her no more till she was taken; she took Miller with her.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you been in this way?</p>
<p>Kenney. Not long; I was a porter before, and worked very hard.</p>
<p>Q. What had Michener to do in it?</p>

He went out, I desired my husband to shut the windows: then the prisoner came back, and said he would push my husband's head in the dunghill: he hit him, and when he pushed him down the second time, his leg caught in the drain, and broke; which was the cause of his death. He ran at him, as if he was going to hit him again, and threatened that he would hit him; but did not: he died of a mortification in his leg.</p>
<p>On her cross examination she said that the prisoner said, when he came into the house, that a man had attempted to steal his uncle's ducks; that they knocked him down; that the deceased said to him, You a good man, and cry for being knock'd down, and said that when he was of the age of the prisoner, he did not fear any man: that then they talk'd about wrestling, but that her husband said that he would not wrestle or fight again at any time, unless he was drunk. She said her husband did not call the prisoner back when he was gone away, but only called after him, and told him, that both he and his uncle were shuffling fellows; that the prisoner stript, and came back again, and then the accident happen'd. She said that Parsons and James were not by at the same time, but at a distance by Dewell's cloaths; that her husband took hold of the prisoner by the collar, and tore his shirt, but that he only took hold of the prisoner's collar in order to support himself.</p>

They had two or three more quarts of wine after that, and paid for every thing as they had it in.</p>
<p>Q. Had they any boxes?</p>
<p>Lloyd. No; One went out to fetch a horse; which of them I can't tell. In about a quarter or half an hour the horse came to the door. I offered to put the horse in my stable, which they refused, and said, perhaps they might not stay ten minutes, or perhaps they might dine. They were consulting backwards and forwards, sometimes one, sometimes two were out together. Presently I heard the found of gold. I went in to see if they were gaming, but I could not perceive that they were. One man and Hopkins went out together; when they had been out about four or five minutes, the other two came to me and said if the gentlemen came and enquired for him he desired I would tell them they were gone to the Brown-Bear in Smithfield. I forgot to mention that I saw one box opened, and I saw some lace in it; it was such a box as these.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who brought them?</p>
<p>Lloyd. I did not take notice. The man that told me that went out and the prisoner took the wallets off the table, and put them across the horse; the boxes were in the wallet. I held the horse, and he went down the road very easy; my house is built fifty feet from the road. I went as far as the road for a fight, and came back very gently.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any part of the conversation, when the four men were in the room?</p>
<p>Lloyd. No; I heard no talk about the lace. I lifted it up at the end and saw it was lace, while the four men were in the room. I was no sooner come in doors, than Hopkins came back and enquired what was become of the gentlemen? I told him they were gone to the Brown-Bear in Smithfield; the prisoner rode upon the horse.

I serve milk in the city, and we leave milk to serve at home by a little child; she informed me that she saw a woman in the room, upon which I set this man to watch.</p>

It was behind the stair-foot, and there was a hole cut through the door that I might see; she asked the child to get her a better farthing, and in the mean time advanced farther into the room, and took these metal buckles (producing them) from a shelf at the further side of the room; she took them into her left hand, and put them under her apron; she then went to the child, and took the farthing and milk, and went out of the house directly. I pursued her, and caught her at about twenty yards off; she was just by the constable's door; I gave her in charge of the constable.</p>
