<p>Q. Are you sure that is the man that took the bundle?</p>
<p>Oram. Yes; I saw his face very well. After he had the bundle the other man asked the prisoner where his pistol was; the prisoner then took a pistol from a pocket, I believe inside his coat, and held it to his breast, and said he would shoot him dead if he would not deliver his money; the prisoner put his hand to his pocket, and said, d - n you, you have money; he turned out his pocket and found none; then the prisoner turned to me, and said madam, your money! I gave him two-pence farthing and two keys; the other man said give the lady her keys again; I took one and left the other in his hand. There were three men a-coming over the style which was not many yards from us; they seeing that, the prisoner took up the bundle and run a-cross the field; the three men came up; we told them of it, but they did

Parish came and told his master he had seen the prisoner cutting up a sheep in Oxford-market, which is not a great way from Mr. Hunt's.</p>
<p>Q. Do you live with Mr. Hunt?</p>
<p>Oram. No; I live in Rathbone Place. Mr. Hunt sent his daughter for me to see if I knew the man; I went, and the moment I saw him I knew him again; he was taken up immediately.</p>

My master sent for Mrs. Oram; when she saw him she said that was the man; the beadle was fetched and he was taken; I was not by when he was taken; I was before the Justice.</p>

The people stript him; his body and limbs were very fair; there was no bruise upon his body at all; I examined his head; upon the left side of his head I saw a bruise; that was the only bruise I saw about him; I did not make any further examination that morning; I deferred the rest till I was sent for by the Coroner's Jury, on the Friday afternoon; then I laid the skull bare, and precisely under the contusion I found a fracture of the skull and a depressure; the skull was depressed and beat in upon the brains, a round piece, something bigger than a shilling; from thence a fracture extended both ways forwards almost to the eye, and backwards to the hind part of the head.</p>
<p>Q. Was that from your opinion the cause of his death?</p>
<p>Palver. No doubt of it; there was no outward wound, the skin was not broke or even grazed.</p>

<p>Livard. Yes.</p>
<p>Allan. He pulled out ten or twelve shillings at my house when he paid for the pint of beer, as I was told by my ostler; I did not see that; I changed a shilling for him.</p>
<p>Q. Was he a man of substance?</p>
<p>Allan. By all accounts he was: he said when he took the money out to pay me for the poor, this is not the pocket where I keep my gold, I am not afraid of giving gold instead of silver.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see which pocket he said was not the pocket where he kept his gold?</p>

When I put the key in the door, the prisoner threw down the window and attempted to run out; Mr. Fray and I took him immediately; he had got in at the window and shut himself in, and was packing the things up; it was a very fine moon light morning. I missed the three pair of shoes and boots, and found them about five in the morning hid by the Park Gate.

Thomas has been a workman there six years; these hoops, which were the stores of the cooperage in which Thomas was employed, were open to him to take hoops, in order to hoop the casks. On the 21st of December I was before Justice Sherwood; some hoops were produced with marks belonging to the Victualling Office; there were two new ones that had never been used.</p>

Leverett is a smith in East Smithfield; he makes grates: I have known Thomas twice or thrice in a week bring hoops in his pocket; he brought these hoops (describing them) in false leather pockets inside his coat; the hoops had the king's broad arrow upon them. On the 2d of August particularly, he brought four; they were tied up in order to make them portable. On the 3d o f September he brought two; all these hoops had the broad arrow upon them. On the 3d or 4th of September Leverett told me that if I could get any thing above twelve shillings per hundred for the hoops brought by Thomas, I should have all above that for myself, and said he had two or
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177310200019"/> three hundred weight of the same kind to dispose of; Leverett cut one of these hoops Thomas brought in my presence, and beat out the broad arrow upon the anvil; then he gave to me a piece of that hoop as a sample of the iron he had to dispose of, and ordered me to go and dispose of it. I have seen Thomas bring iron to Leverett innumerable times. Instead of carrying this piece of iron I had for a sample to dispose of to any person, I went and made a discovery to the Lords of the Admiralty. When Leverett beat out the broad arrow, he said if that was seen upon them, the persons would not purchase it. Leverett gave three-pence halfpenny for each hoop, which weighed about three or four pound, and each hoop was in truth worth seven pence. I know Leverett gave that sum to Thomas, for I have seen him pay the money for the hoops,</p>

<p>Young. Yes; and was gone when I took these hoops upon him; I had seen him there twice that morning, at nine and eleven o'clock.</p>
<p>- Child. I bought some hoops of Leverett with the broad arrow upon them; I took them for a debt Leverett owed me; he sent me home to my house a parcel of hoops with the broad arrow upon them.</p>
<p>Thomas's Defence.</p>
<p>I am totally innocent of the charge; I never sold any hoops to Leverett.</p>
<p>Leverett's Defence.</p>
<p>As to the old iron which Child speaks of, which was a transaction in January, there was one Nash who keeps an old iron shop, and makes nails; I buy my iron of that Nash; I bought those hoops of him which I sent to Child. As to the other charge of the iron spoken of by Hayward, and the other witnesses, I am innocent of that. As to Hayward he is a bad man, and has an anger against me; either of these witnesses would have said nothing at all, or spoke in my favour, if I had given them a guinea a piece.</p>

<p>Mrs. Green. I have lodged in his house three months; I never saw Thomas bring any iron to the house; I never saw any iron of this kind in the house. I never saw any iron in the house but old iron, and no iron that had the broad arrow upon it.</p>

On Friday evening the 17th of September, at ten o'clock, my cellar door was fast locked; it opens into the street; the next morning I found the door open; I went into the cellar and missed some butter; I could not tell the exact quantity I missed, but was sure butter was missing; I heard nothing more of this matter till that day fortnight, and then Barnsby being taken up, and being before Justice Fielding, I heard him say then that there were five firkins taken away.</p>

The prisoner desired I would not discover it, therefore I did not tell Holliday I had seen this butter at Cuthbert's till after Barnsby was taken.</p>

Bradley, Croft and myself went that Saturday morning between four and five to this cellar door of Mr. Holliday's; we unlocked the padlock but found still the door did not open; that there was an inside lock to it, therefore I forced open the door. When I had got open Crofts went into the cellar, and took out three firkins; we first took one of these firkins a piece and carried it down to one Kemp's in Peter-street, Saffron-hill, and left them there, then we all three came back to the cellar; I only went down into the cellar the second time, and brought up two more firkins, and Crofts and

<p>Barnsby. Then we went to one Wallace, who lives in Chick-lane, and told him we had some butter; he said he would not buy it unless it was very good; we agreed at last for a groat a pound, but Wallace, when we brought the butter to him, tasted it, and would not give so much for it. The same afternoon we took from Cuthbert's another firkin and part of a third firkin, and carried that to Green. Kemp bought part and Keeling had part. This day three weeks I went again to Cuthbert's; Cuthbert then told me he had sold some for kitchen stuff; he gave me 5 s. 3 d. in part, and said he would account for the rest when the whole was sold, and that he had not disposed of the other. Cuthbert knew this butter was stolen; he had dealt with me before for stolen goods. I was taken up about an affair after, and no more conversation with Cuthbert about the butter.</p>
<p>Bradley's Defence.</p>
<p>I know nothing of it; I am quite innocent.</p>
<p>Cuthbert's Defence.</p>
<p>The butter was left at my house by Bradley and Croft, about seven in the morning; Bradley came to me and desired to borrow two sacks, because his goods were seized. Bradley kept a chandler's shop and wanted to remove some butter; I lent him two sacks; Bradley went away with the sacks; some time after Crofts and he brought the sacks, containing five firkins of butter; I told them they might put them in that room up stairs, which they did; the next day they took two of them, and I insisted upon it they should take the other three, but in the interim Smith came to take a room; I shewed him the room where the butter was; I told him it was there to be sold; I told him it was a chandler in distress wanted to sell it; these people never came back for the butter. Smith told me a friend had lost some butter, but he did not mention the name of that friend. Being resolved to get rid of the butter I went to Croft and he fetched it away.</p>

On the 27th of August last my master and the family were in Yorkshire; I was left alone in the house; I went to bed about ten at night; all the doors and windows were fast; I arose about half after six o'clock in the morning; the first thing I observed was the dining room was open; the windows were fast; the door of the dining room I fastened last as I went to bed; I found a chest belonging to Mrs. Barton, who is now in France, and has been there nine months, in the room broke open; it was in a closet kept within the dining room; it was put in there, locked, a fortnight before, when the family went into the country; I had not seen it out of this closet till the morning when I found it broke open, and the closet door was open. I went down stairs and saw the office door and all the drawers except one open, and the back door to the garden was broke open, which door I am sure was fast when I went to bed; the bottom of the door was broke away; two pieces were taken out, one over the other, by which means the person could get into the house. As to any of the plate, and things mentioned in the indictment that have been lost, I can give no account of them, excepting two silver tea spoons marked E. P. they were

On the 6th of September, about half after seven in the morning, the prisoner came to my shop, and enquired if I had good second hand watches to sell; I shewed him one; he liked it and asked the price; I said 55 s he said he was not a good judge of watches himself, but he had an acquaintance that lived in the town, and would bring him in half an hour; he asked me if I took plate in exchange; I said yes, if it was sterling and good. The prisoner returned in about half an hour with another man, whom I did not know then; his name is Simpson; he looked at the watch and liked it, and desired I would mention the lowest price; I said fifty shillings; then I desired the prisoner to shew me his plate; upon which he produced a silver waiter, two silver salts, a silver gilt cann and a silver flat-bottom candlestick; I looked at them several times; I suspected him and sent my apprentice for

I went home, and in an hour after was sent for to the Town-hall. The plate was delivered to one Finley, a serjeant at mace. (The silver waiter, gilt cann, salts and candlestick produced). they are the same the prisoner produced to me; I saw them put in the trunk to the other things at the Town-hall; the trunk was locked, and the key was delivered to the serjeant at mace.</p>

I am a constable: I was sent for by Mr. Harrison, about eight in the morning of the 6th of September; I saw in his shop the prisoner and Simpson; Mr. Harrison told me he suspected some plate produced was not honestly come by; the prisoner said he had some friends, and particularly one Hill, who he had served his apprenticeship with, but that having broke his indentures, he was obliged to go from him; he said his aunt had left him, his brother, and father an equal share of the plate, and that was his share; Mr. Harrison asked him why he did not dispose of it in London; he said he had not a mind, he was not among his friends; he muttered something further that I could not

Between twelve and one I went, in company with Mr. Harrison, to one of the Aldermen, and carried the plate; returning to Mr. Harrison's, we met with Simpson. Between two and three we found the prisoner by the Key-side, at a shoemaker's house; I called him to the door and told him I was come for him that he might let the magistrate know how he came by the plate; he said he was very willing to do so, because he could give a clear account how he came by it, and accordingly went quietly into the Town-hall; I went for Mr. Harrison, and he came with me to the Court; the prisoner in the Town-hall delivered me these spoons out of his pocket; two that have been now produced I am sure are two of them.</p>

On the 6th of September, between two and three in the afternoon, I first saw the prisoner, in the Town Court, before Alderman Moseley; two spoons were taken out of his pocket. (The spoons shown him); they are the same. By Mr. Moseley's orders I went to one Mitchel's house, in High Bridge; there I found a trunk; it was locked; I brought it to the Court while the prisoner was there; Mr. Moseley asked him if he had the key of the trunk; he took the key out of his pocket, and Mr. Harrison opened the trunk or chest with the key; I saw a great quantity of plate, and all the things were locked up again in my presence, and the key delivered to me; I have kept the key ever since; the chest has been opened two or three times, but always in my presence; there was nothing taken out. When I went to Mrs. Mitchel's she gave me three small silver spoons, and another that was gilt; I brought them to the Town Court, and shewed them to the prisoner; he acknowledged them to be his, and said he had given them to the woman of the house; there was also a gold girdle (producing it); the prisoner acknowledged that girdle to be his.</p>
