I am a watchman in Pancras Parish; on Tuesday morning, the 19th of May, I saw the prisoners about a quarter after four come out of Windmill-street, Tottenham-court road, each of them had a bundle on his back; they crossed down on the left hand side towards Russel-street; Henry Green, a brother watchman, and I pursued them; we thought it was bedding, one was tied up in a blanket, the other in a coverlid; when we came to Russel-street corner, Emmington, a watchman of St. Giles's, was smoaking his pipe, I beckoned to him and he came up; I thought before we were not sufficient to seize them; Emmerton came up and we seized Alsworth at the corner of Russel-street; Adshead upon that threw down his bundle and ran up Russel-street, another watchman of St. Giles's pursued him, and he was stopt; we took Alsworth away to Giles's round-house; Adshead was brought in soon afterwards. Leadbetter searched Alsworth before Adshead came in; I don't know what he took out of his pocket, we opened the bundle in the public house; they were both secured then. The bundles contained all these cloaths and many more; we carried the clothes to Justice Cox's, and from thence we took them to the Justices Office in Litchfield-street. When we first stopt them and asked them what they had got there; Alsworth said, what is that to you? we asked them where they were going with them? they said they were their own property, and it was hard they should be stopt, that they were going to remove them to prevent their being seized.</p>

Bannister and Emmington took Alsworth to the round house; I took the bundles to a public house, from whence we went with them to Mr. Cox's; we looked at them there, and then tied them up again; these are the things that were in the bundles.</p>

I stopt Adshead, and said, my friend, what have you got here? he immediately threw it down and ran away; I turned short round and caught Alsworth by the collar, and kept him fast till Bannister came to my assistance, and we took him to the round house; while we were examining his pockets, Adshead was brought in by Oldham and one Mitchell.

<p>Bannister. He began to search him on the outside, but searched him in the inside: Emmington held the hat inside the watch house, and Leadbetter put them into his hat as he took them out of his pocket.</p>

<p>Q. Did you lose sight of him?</p>
<p>Oldham. Yes, turning the corner till the man stopt him. I am sure he is the same man; then he was searched inside the round-house, and the things taken from him by Leadbetter. I was not present when Alsworth was searched.</p>
<p>Alsworth's Defence.</p>
<p>I was a going up the street where the gentlewoman lives; I don't know the name of the street; two people came out of the fore door of the house, with a bundle; one stood on the other side of the way; I stopped, when they got the things they went through the passage that went up stairs and led me to a chapel; I and Adshead followed them; with that they put down their bundles, and stood some time; I said to Adshead, stand a little aside, for I believe they have stole these things; we did; they whispered one another; then they went away forty yards from these bundles; I believe we went up and looked at the bundles. I said where Mrs. Bellamy lived before Justice Cox, that the things might be found; I said we would carry them home; we took them on our backs; some things tumbled out of the bundles, Adshead put some of the things in his pocket, and I put some in mine; they are the things that have been produced in court. When we came down Tottenham-court-road that man laid hold of me; he asked me where I was going with the bundles; I said if he chose it he might go and see where I was going with them. Bannister watched me from the place till they stopt me.</p>
<p>Q. to Bannister. Did you see them pick the bundles up?</p>
<p>Bannister. No; I saw them upon their backs.</p>
<p>Adshead. I acknowledge myself guilty of the charge, and beg the mercy of the court; it is my first offence, and I am a young man.</p>

I soon fainted by their pulling me about; then they got me up on the seat. When I came to myself, I found one of them standing by my side, one sitting opposite me, and the other was doing with me as my husband did.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know which that was?</p>
<p>Smith. No; two of them had to do with me, or else one of them twice, I can't tell which.</p>
<p>Q. Where his private parts in yours?</p>
<p>Smith. Yes; I took hold of it with my hand; I screamed, and one of them said he would cut my throat if I was not quiet; I was in such confusion I can't tell which; they cut my apron string.</p>
<p>Q. Did you perceive any thing come from the man that was using you so?</p>
<p>Smith. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Had he actual carnal knowledge of you?</p>
<p>Smith. He had indeed. I put my head out of the window as soon as I could, and cried out murder! the men kept hollowing and hooting inside and outside the coach; a brother of one in the coach was upon the box with the coachman, and there were some more behind the coach; they kept pulling me into the coach; I did not know where I was; I believe the coachman did not drive up the main street. They hauled me up and down, and pulled me about as they chose. I did not know whether they were men or boys; I said if you have fathers or mothers or wives, if you are men, have humanity towards me, for I have just lain in; they said they would lye in with me; they kept cursing, swearing and hallowing; they made no particular answer to any thing.</p>
<p>Q. You say you was lain with twice: when was the second time?</p>
<p>Smith. Some time after the first.</p>
<p>Q. And in the same manner?</p>
<p>Smith. It was not quite so plain; I found they had hold of me, and had lain with me, but I cannot be so punctual to that as the other. I am a married woman; I am sure of it from circumstances.</p>
<p>Q. Had they entered your body?</p>
<p>Smith. I am sure they had the first time, and I had reason to believe they had the second time; the coach was stopt at Aldgate at twelve o'clock by the mob upon my screaming, where they had drove me during that time I can't say; a person came up to the coach; they told him. I was a woman of the town and was in liquor; there was a clergyman asked me where I lived, I told him; he ordered the coachman to drive me home. The men jumped out of the coach window, and a man came into the coach to see me home; I was afraid that man was as bad as themselves. The coachman was taken into custody; he gave us the names of the men and told us where we might find them, and they were accordingly taken that night.</p>
<p>Q. Are these the three men?</p>
<p>Smith. They owned they were before my Lord Mayor, and confessed all but the fact.</p>
<p>Q. Can you swear these are the three men that were in the coach?</p>
<p>Smith. I can't tell, it was dark; they owned they were.</p>
<p>On her cross examination, she said,</p>
<p>"that her husband had kept a public house, but was now out of employment; that she had been married three years; that she had been informed her husband was an officer of the marshall's court, before her marriage; that she spent the evening of the 16th of January with her brother, at the Golden Cross, Charing Cross, where they supped, and had a bowl of punch with Mr. Hargrave, one of the proprietors of the stage coaches; that they took the coach about half after ten; that she was quite sober; that her brother put her into the coach, and was himself getting in when the coachman came out of the house; that they did not desire her to get out of the coach, but rushed in immediately; that her brother wanted her to get out of the coach, but they would not let her."</p>

I went backwards and missed a waiter; I ran to the window and saw several persons, one called out, We have taken one, and there are more in the yard; I went into the shop, and told my servant to run round by Creed-lane, and stop all he met; I went back to the window, and saw the prisoner by the palisadoes in the yard; I went out, my servants came to my assistance, and we pulled him into the parlour; we sent for the constable, and searched him; we found a chissel in his side pocket; we searched for fire-arms, but found none. When we had him in the parlour I taxed him with breaking into my house eight months ago; he said no, he did not; for this was his first offence. I lost a silver waiter, a table spoon, a salt seller, and salt-spoon out of the parlour; the palisadoes are breast high and sharp-pointed; the ground is nearly on a line with the bottom of the window; I was in the parlour about twenty minutes before, the plate was safe then; the window was shut down; there is a sort of a spring bolt; the candles had been lighted, but they were put out. When I went out of the parlour, Mrs. Greenough followed me and put them out.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177206030025"/>Q. Was there any appearance of force on the frame of the window?</p>
<p>Greenough. No, none at all.</p>
<p>- Greenough, jun. On the 19th of May, in the evening, between nine and ten, nearer than nine; I happened to come into the counting house to my father; the servant came down, crying thieves! I went round according to my father's order; I found several persons with plate, that I knew to be my father's; I took it from them, and brought it home with me. I saw the man within the rails, and there were two or three persons came up, who would have got him over the rails, with a pretence to have him directly before the justice; but I thought he was more secure within the rails; (the plate produced and deposed to.)</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Was it light enough to see him?</p>
<p>Greenough. There was light enough; there were lights brought out.</p>
<p>Q. Was the night entirely set in?</p>
<p>Greenough. Yes, quite dark.</p>

I saw the prisoner and another man looking into Mr. Greenough's window; they gave a cough and parted. I went in, and told the woman of the house where I lodge, I believed there were thieves in the court. I came again to the door and looked, and they had got close to the windows; I shut the door and said they were there; I looked again, and they had got the window up, and one jumped in; I then said there is one in; she said, I had better go to the fore door of Mr. Greenough's, and alarm them; I went to go, but the man came out, with a piece of plate in his hand; I asked him what he did there? he then put the plate down, and pretended to put the shutters too; then I made an alarm of thieves! and he attempted to make his escape; I gave him a knock of the head, and he fell immediately: I kept him there till I got assistance.</p>
<p>Q. from the prisoner. Did not you say before my lord mayor, that I had nothing in my hand?</p>
<p>Weed. I said no such thing, but that you had plate in your hand.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I was going by the window; it was open; and I saw the plate there, which was a very great temptation; I could not resist it: It is my first offence.</p>
