There was an information made on Thursday se'ennight at Sir John Fielding's office, about eight or nine at night, of a robbery committed that night upon the Kentish town road; next night three men were sent from Sir John's to wait at the back of Battlebridge turnpike, in order to see if there was any thing stirring of these people on the road; nothing occurred that night; the same method was pursued the next night at Battlebridge turnpike, which commanded several different roads; I, Halliburton and Taylor were posted at Battle-bridge turnpike; about seven an information was received at Sir John's, that a coach had been robbed by two men on the Hampstead road; upon that Mr. Bond and Jennings came immediately to us in a coach, and informed us of the account they had received; we all got into the coach and went along near Fig lane, in hopes of being stopt; we got into the Hampstead road near the mile stone; we saw two men come by on my side, and one man on the other side; I suspected these were the men; I directly opened the coach door and jumped out; upon that the two prisoners and Humphreys took to their heels, and jumped over a gate; they were taken in the manner described by the other witnesses; we found nothing upon them that night, but early next morning, as soon as it was light, having a suspicion they might have dropped some of their weapons; we went to search, and near the gate in some water; I found this pistol (producing it) loaded with a slug, and charged with powder and primed, and about twenty yards farther in the field the men run over, I found this cutlass ( producing it.)</p>

On Thursday se'ennight the two prisoners and I went to the Castle at Kentish town; we had a pot of beer and a paper of tobacco; we staid there about a quarter of an hour and then went away; I went on hearing the conversation about a robbery I had committed; the other two followed me in about five minutes; I waited at the door; I left the beer for them to pay for. We went down Kentish town, where we robbed a coach. I had at the Castle this cutlass; May had this pistol; Wilson had a hanger; (produced in court) I had it under my coat, putting the point into my pocket; I cannot tell how they concealed the pistol and hanger; Male presented the pistol and stopped the horses; Male opened the coach door; I was on the other side; he took something on the other side of the coach; I heard them desire them to put the pistol away and they would give them the money; we were all concerned in the robbery. After I got over the gate I threw away the cutlass, but Male did not know that I threw it away, nor I did not know that he had thrown the pistol away; but the pistol and cutlass now produced, were the pistol and cutlass we had at that time. The reason why we run away upon Sir John's coach stopping, was, because we knew it very well by the pace: a common stage goes much faster.</p>
<p>Q. How long have the prisoners and you been connected?</p>
<p>Humphreys. Wilson about a month, Male longer,</p>
