On Tuesday the 6th Instant, I was going to carry home a pair of pumps to a gentleman, and in the afternoon I missed them; I had seen them in the morning; on the Saturday following, when I went down into my shop, about seven in the morning, my servant informed me another pair of shoes were stolen; they were all bespoke shoes, and had names in them; I supposed they were taken while my servant was sweeping the shop; accordingly on the Monday morning following I went down with him, and while he swept the shop I went on the stairs to watch; I saw the prisoner come into the shop, and take a pair of shoes from the window, and put them under his great coat; he turned and went out of the shop; I followed him and took him about 25 yards from my shop, with these shoes on him. I took him before the Justice; he confessed taking the pumps on the Saturday and the shoes on Monday.</p>

<p>Randal. I would not swear to a nicety.</p>

The prisoner said, sir, I beg your pardon, you have overlooked a queen Ann's guinea at the bottom of your cash in your hand; I looked it over again, and suffered the prisoner to put his hand among my cash; he took out five guineas, looked over the rest, and found never a queen Ann's guinea among them; then he said he begged pardon for giving me so much trouble, and dropt a guinea into my hand again, in such a way as if he meant to conceal part of the money, by the found it appeared as if he dropt only a guinea; I saw more money in his hand, which he removed into his other hand, in which was a handkerchief; then upon my seizing him, he pushed the money into his waistcoat pocket; I got over the counter; the prisoner ran away; I pursued him, and called, stop thief! when he had run about fifteen yards, I stopt him, and I took four guineas out of his waistcoat pocket, and when I examined my cash account, I missed just four guineas.</p>
<p>- Shagg. I live at Mr. Nicoll's, in St. Paul's Church Yard; I heard the cry of, stop thief!

<p>I did not say so; the money was my own; my wife went out of the shop, and I was running to overtake her when they stopt me.</p>

<p>The constable deposed that he took the prisoner into custody; after which he knocked down one of the watchmen and run away, but they pursued him and retook him.</p>
<p>The prisoner, in his defence, said, he was innocent; that he was walking home when he was stopt; that he saw a person run by on the other side of the way.</p>
<p>He called three witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

I keep the Duke of Grafton's Head, a public house in Tottenham-court Road; when this happened, Count and Steadman came into my house; Count told me their master's son had been robbed, and asked me to go with them; I did; they were in a one horse chaise; I ordered my man to bring my horse out; I took a pair of pistols with me; and I went before them through the Turnpike. As I came up by Battle-bridge, near Grays-Inn-lane-road, I saw three men peeping through the rails; I went past them a good way; when I supposed I was out of their sight, I dismounted, pulled out a handkerchief, and tied it to my bridle, and led my horse, so that he was my screen. I saw Murphy, Earle, and Lewis together. I heard them talk how they would attack the chaise, which was then in sight; I was then about as near to them as the length of the Court.</p>
<p>Q. Could they see your horse?</p>
<p>Plenius. Yes, they might, I suppose; they took it to be a stray horse. I accompanied them in this manner thirty or forty roods; the chaise was in the new road, a good way off towards Paddington; one of them swore a bitter oath; he said d - n your eyes, there is a carriage comming, mind how you come on, the first that resists shoot him; they were on foot; they panted; Lewis went in the middle of the road, Earle went outside of the rails in the foot path, and Murphy about three or four yards before him; there is a Turnpike facing Grays-Inn-lane-road. I pulled off my handkerchief and mounted; I turned round the corner at the Turnpike house; the chaise was then about twice the length of this court distant; then Lewis laid hold of the bridle; Murphy went on the left side of the chaise, and Earle on the right side, and demanded their money or their life; I saw Steadman, who sat in the chaise, give Murphy a cut; Earle received a cut from Count, by which, he fell to the ground; he then said D - n you, why don't you fire? upon that, Lewis fired; they were all three in a heap upon the ground; I fired at Lewis immediately; when they found we had fire arms, they began to run; I bid Steadman take care of Earle, and I said I would pursue the others; I did: Murphy got under the rails into the field, so I followed Lewis; I threw him down with my horse; I kept him there till some of our people came up, and secured him; as soon as Lewis fired, he threw his pistol into the field; it was found there two or three days after; I took Lewis and Earle to my house, which is about a quarter of a mile off. I found some powder upon Earle; I asked Earle about the robbery that had been committed about an hour before; Earle said that he knew about it, but the man who had the watch was gone; that was what he said. This was Saturday night; it was about eight days after, when I saw Murphy; he passed the street at their examination; Hinchcliffe said, there is the man that robbed me; I told Mr. Welch what he said; I went out and brought him in; that was Murphy; I am positive he
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177210210010"/> is the man I saw attack the chaise; I charged him with the robbery; he said he knew nothing about it; I told the justice, if he was the person, he had a cut upon the shoulder; the Justice bid him pull off his great coat; he was very loth to do it; the Justice made him pull it off, and there was a cut through his coat and waistcoat, and also in his flesh.</p>
<p>Q. Did Earle say any thing before the Justice about this robbery?</p>
<p>Plenius. No: he said he had been at Bartholomew-fair, and the powder was to blow the sausage womens pans up.</p>

I work for Mr. Hinchcliffe; young Mr. Hinchcliffe came in on Saturday night, near eight o'clock, on the 5th of September, and said he had been robbed of his watch; Mr. Count and I went in pursuit of them; we called at Mr. Plenius in Tottenham-court road; he went with us; we apprehended Earle and Lewis; they were carried to Mr. Plenius's.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any thing said by Earle or Lewis about the robbery?</p>
<p>Steadman. No; Earle was that night; at the Middlesex Hospital (he was cut in his head so we took him to the Hospital) I said to him, you young dog where is the watch? he said the person that we did not take, had got it; I talked to him all the way to the hospital; he would not tell me any thing, till he came to the hospital; he bled pretty much, and was very sore; he thought he was dying I believe.</p>
<p>Q. Did you say any thing about the robbery?</p>
<p>Steadman. No; I believe Murphy is one that attacked us, I can't be certain of it, only that mark upon his shoulder, I am sensible I cut the man upon the shoulder; Count was with me when Earle spoke.</p>

<p>Earle. I was cut in such a manner I had not sense to speak a word.</p>
<p>Q. to Steadman. Do you remember the people that attacked you?</p>
<p>Steadman. Yes, very well; Murphy came on my left side; I was driving the chaise; I took notice of them as they came up; Earle came on the right side. I was at the Justice's when Murphy was charged with having a cut upon his shoulder; his cloaths were taken off and I saw the cut; there was a cut in his coat and waistcoat which was sewed up.</p>
<p>Cross Examination.</p>
<p>Q. Did you say this at the Justice's the first examination?</p>
<p>Steadman. No; we thought he had be. taken up for other affairs then, so we said nothing about ours; he was not brought to the bar in account of our affair; I did not see him till the second examination.</p>
<p>Q. Was he charged with your affair then?</p>
<p>Steadman. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did you say any thing about him then?</p>
<p>Steadman. No; the Justice did not ask us any question about him?</p>
<p>Q. You saw him in custody of the constable?</p>
<p>Steadman. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell the constable that he was one of them?</p>
<p>Steadman. No; if I had known they had intended to set him at liberty, I should have spoke; I did not think that he was taken up on our affair.</p>
<p>Murphy's Defence.</p>
<p>It is very odd they should swear to me, when at the Justice's they said it was so dark they could not distinguish one man from another.</p>
<p>Earle's Defence.</p>
<p>I was going to my brother's in Bowling-green lane, Marybone; I heard the cry of stop thief! I ran along the road to see what was the matter; one of these men ran across the road, and cut me down; I asked him what that was for; he said I was thief; then he tied my hands behind me, and said I was going to rob a chaise; then they took me to the house, and from thence to the hospital; I never spoke a word, good, bad, nor indifferent, till I went before the Justice.</p>

On the 28th of September, about half after ten at night, as I was going down the street to the wharf, I saw two or three people coming up the street with some sacks on their backs; I suspected them, and I dogged them; I saw Collings go with one sack of coals down into a milk cellar in Essex-street; accordingly I stepped over the way, and by that time the prisoner Haslet, and another with him, came with another sack; as soon as I began to challenge them what they had got, and how they came by it, they threw the sack down, and run away. Then the master and mistress of the milk cellar came to me, and asked what I did there; I said I believed they had something in their cellar they should not have there; they would not let me go down at first, but presently they did, and there I saw Collings, and the sack of coals tied round with a garter; I looked at Collings knees, and saw he had but one garter on: Collings said he picked the coals out of the Thames; I opened the sack and looked at the coals; they were large coals, and as clean as when they came out of the pit; then Haslet was brought down; I charged Haslet, but he denied knowing any thing of it; then Collings said he had been with him that night.</p>

<p>Haslet's Defence.</p>
<p>He never saw me with any coals on my back: as I was going along the street, a boy came to me, and said some gentlemen wanted to see me at the Crown, in Essex-street; I went, and when I came there he said it was over the way in a milk cellar; I went to the milk cellar, and May charged me with stealing some coals.</p>

I dined before I went to the house of call; at four o'clock Mr. Maurice asked me to go into Mrs. Johnson's, the Cock and Magpye, Drury-lane; I objected to go in because I had no money; he said he had money, and desired me to go in, I did: we sat down and drank a pint of beer; he desired me to walk out into the yard; I did; there he desired me to take notice, as he had some business with Mrs. Johnson; we sat down in the kitchen; he wrote something down upon a piece of paper about three inches square; Mrs. Johnson was in the bar: he went into the bar to Mrs. Johnson with it. He had before desired me to take notice, so I went to the bar, and saw Mrs. Johnson sign it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any conversation between them?</p>
<p>Moore. No, I saw no more pass; then we came into the room, he desired me to look at the receipt and see if I could be sure that was Mrs. Johnson's hand writing; I made use of an oath that he should desire me to take notice of so trifling a thing as a receipt for three shillings, for I did not know of any deception then; I read the receipt, it was for three shillings then: it was dated 8th of Sept. He bid me put it in my pocket; I did: he asked me immediately for it, and I gave it him, then he desired me to go up stairs with him into his room; I did not know he lodged there before. When I went into the room he took up a box, from whence he took a smaller box, out of which he took some promissory notes for small sums, one of which was I think for five pounds or five guineas; I did not observe whose note that was; he said I will show you the deception; he took the receipt that Mrs. Johnson had signed; he took off the the written receipt from the rest of the paper; it had been slightly gumed on the other paper; he separated it, and so made it into two; there stood on one paper the bare receipt without any name, on the other was a blank piece of paper, excepting only an L, a figure of three, and two scratches above and below the figure of three, and

I asked him what was his intention; he said he had no intention of hurting her, he meant only to marry her; he said he would call Mrs. Johnson aside into a room, and he intended to present that note to her for payment, if she refused to marry him: I told him I thought no man could have the face to do so; he said he did not intend to injure Mrs. Johnson, but he imagined she could not procure bail, and said she would consent to marry him. We drank I believe a pint of beer in this room; then we went down stairs again, and I went home. I frequented Mr. Dobson's house, where I casually met with him several days, and we occasionally drank together. About a week or a fortnight after this, Mrs. Johnson, and some gentlemen of her acquaintance, came to Mr. Dobson's; I was there; Maurice came in a few minutes after them; Mr. Dobson called me up; when they informed me of the affair I was struck with great surprise; told them that I knew something of it, but I did not tell them what then; on the next morning I went and acquainted my friend (one Mr. Day) of it, and asked his advice, the next morning I sent to Mrs. Johnson to come to me; when they came, I gave to Mr. Skinner, her attorney, the same information concerning it, as I have done now; we then went to Sir

Mr. Mayhew said he would write a letter; Maurice put the receipt in his pocket book, and we came away; coming out at the door, I said, how was this contracted? he gave me no answer; then I said I supposed it was something of his late wife's affair; he said it was right enough, and Moore saw her sign it. I had no farther conversation with him; he asked me every day if any body had enquired for him.</p>
<p>Q. from the prisoner to Moore. Whether he has not received a certain sum of money for swearing against me?</p>

When Mrs. Johnson's friends came to me, I expressed to them the nature of my situation, I was turned out of Mrs. Dobson's house; turned down stairs, and used in a most desperate manner, and ever since they have not admitted me any where for subsistence.

On the 16th of September last I went to Mrs. Johnson; I went into the fore parlour on the right hand side, and Mr. Armstrong followed me in; Mrs. Johnson was there, and some other people were there, the prisoner was not; Mr. Armstrong told Mrs. Johnson, he had a writ against her; he arrested her at the sait of Underwood; I was one of her bail. I never heard Maurice say any thing about it; he was a journeyman taylor and lodged at Mrs. Johnson's. On the 18th, when we went to Mr. Dobson's, after waiting a little while, Mr. Maurice came in; we asked him to go up stairs; he did; we talked to him about this note; he seemed vastly confused, did not know what to do; we asked him how he could be so cruel; he said he never meant to hurt Mrs. Johnson, he had a very great respect for her; we said, did she ever owe you a farthing in her life? he would not answer any such question; we asked him how he could be so cruel as to arrest her, what a base man he must be; as we then supposed the matter was, before we discovered Moore's account, that as she did not look at the receipt when she signed it, we supposed that she had signed the note of hand, and did not look at the contents. He said if Mrs. Johnson, or her friends, knew his heart, they would be happy, and make themselves easy; I called him into a room by himself, where I discoursed an hour with him about the matter; he would not answer any thing material. Moore (after Mr. Dobson informed us he knew more about the matter) said he believed Mr. Maurice was a very honest man; we sent for Moore up stairs; he said, I think, he knew nothing about it. Moore sent for us next day; he said it was in his own breast to discover this affair; that he was a poor man, and that it would be attended with loss of time, and he expected to be satisfied for it; we asked him his sum; he said ten guineas; we proposed five guineas; he said if it was put in any other man's hands, it would be the same to him; it was not our offer but his request.</p>
<p>Q. How did the note run?</p>
<p>Asto. It ran, we promise to pay five guineas for trouble or loss of time.</p>
<p>Q. Was any thing said in it on conviction?</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>The note was wrote first before she signed it; I had no intention in the world to deceive Mrs. Johnson; I had it in my pocket a few days after; going along Fleet-street, I shewed it to an acquaintance; I met at the end of Fleet-market, one Mr. Keyland, who lives at Islington; I told him I asked Mrs. Johnson to sign it; he told me I had not best shew it to Mrs. Johnson; he asked me if I was acquainted with any attorney; he told me of one Mr. Mayhew, he was acquainted with; he recommended me to give it to him; we drank a pint of beer together; he went into a public house; I went to the chambers to Mr. Mayhew; I told him a gentleman wanted him at the Cock; he came there; I shewed him the note. Keyland bid me tell him it was a good note. I did not know any body could be taken out of their house and be imprisoned without a warrant.</p>

The two prisoners and I set out together from St. Giles's on a Sunday; I don't know the day of the month, about nine in the morning; we lay together in Westminster; the night before we agreed to go to Richmond, in order to rob; we met Mr. Heley in the way, near Hammersmith; we dined at Brentford; about four o'clock, after dinner, we crossed in the ferry to Richmond; we walked round the Green, but there were so many watch boxes and lamps, we thought that place would not do for us; we crossed Kew Bridge: we drank at an alehouse or two, in order to make us almost drunk to raise our spirits; then we went to a place which I have since heard is called Shepherd's Bush. A post chaise came up; it was not quite dark but I thought it was dark enough that we could not be seen; we could hardly see one another; we all cried out to the driver of the chaise, stop! There were two Gentlemen in the chaise; I took a watch and some money from one gentleman, and some money from the other, and both their hats; after I got their money, I demanded their watches; the gentlemen said they had but one, and one of them gave me a watch; there was a person behind the chaise.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Forbes. Was there any person be-behind the chaise?</p>
<p>Forbes. Yes, there was.</p>
<p>Evans. After I had got the watch and the money, Wiggins said give me me your hats; we took them, and went away across the fields, we went, I believe, two miles out of the way; we cut the hats to pieces in the first field, because they were fantail hats; that was not the sort we wanted. I was with the two prisoners when Mr. Bond came up; I made off; Wiggins had the watch from me, what he did with it I can't say; I had the silver to divide when we came to town.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Forbes. Do you know who demanded your hat?</p>
<p>Forbes. I remember that after the money was given, a different voice from that which demanded our money, said give me your hats.</p>
<p>Wiggins's Defence.</p>
<p>I was near the place; but I was not there with any intent on to rob; I lost myself there, and afterwards I went away over the fields.</p>
