On the 23d of February, between seven and eight in the evening, there was an alarm of fire, and my house was in danger. I took my writings and carried to a neighbour's. I returned in about five minutes and found about a dozen soldiers in my house: they assisted me to carry off my goods, some to one place and some to another. The next day, the prisoner, who is a

<p>Mrs. Edmonds. That box was kept in a closet. I remember seeing the prisoner take it away; I told my husband that the prisoner had taken this box: he charged a constable with him: we got a warrant, and searched the prisoner's lodging, in Rochester Row, Tottlefields; there I found a part of my property, (some of the things produced in court and deposed to) part of the box was found, and the prisoner confessed he had burned the other part. Rochester Row is about a quarter of a mile from Pye Street.</p>

<p>I removed the goods to my wife's aunt's for safety, they were afterwards conveyed to my lodgings without my privity or knowledge by my wife.</p>

<p>I was drinking with the prosecutor at the Butcher's Arms. I had occasion to go to the necessary, and there I found the watch: the next day I pawned the watch to get some things out of pawn.</p>

<p>Wise. No, I never stirred off my seat.</p>

The boy drove at the rate of a mile in three minutes and a half and four minutes Mr. Penwarne was in the chaise with me, and his servant rode behind the chaise; I delivered him a pistol; we were stopped just at the enterance of the last heath towards Hounslow; which I find since, is called

I saw at a distance two men coming from the Heath into the road, they road, they rode on at a moderate rate towards the chaise, it was between the two Heaths; we were going at the rate of fourteen or fifteen miles an hour, they were coming moderately on at the rate of five or six mile an hour: when they came within about five yards of the heads of the horses, one dropped on one side of the chaise, and the other on the other, and came up to the body of the chaise; just as they were about the windows of the chaise, the man on the right hand of the chaise cried Holloa, stop, and the chaise immediately stopped. I find since that that was Barret , by his being taken in the situation in which he was with his hair over his shoulders, I laid hold of a pistol and dropped my own glass, the glass on that side was up, we were going so fast I suppose it was all done in two or three seconds before they came to the chaise door; as soon as the man upon the right hand side cried holloa stop, he said d - n you down with your door, as soon as my glass was let down, the man on the left hand side run a pistol into the side of the chaise, and said, d - n your blood deliver your money, or I will blow your brains out.</p>
<p>Q. What kind of a pistol was it.</p>
<p>Pike. It appeared to be a short pistol, the lock was on the side of the barrel in the old fashion way, I leaned forward to look at him, he cried G - d d - n you, he swore very much, he appeared very drunk. I told him not to behave ill, and he would have what he wanted presently; after
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177504260006"/> that, he swore very much; he was not I suppose pleased at my looking at him; he said God d - n you be quick or I will blow your brains out; at the instant, I was lifting my pistol to fire at him, for I thought myself in great danger from him as a drunken man: at that instant the pistol came in at the other door, and the other man said d - n you deliver your money instantly; finding there was one on each side, I thought I had better desist.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose that pistol was presented to the other gentleman in the chaise?</p>
<p>Pike. It was in the chaise door; they endeavoured to avoid shewing their faces a good deal, but I saw the faces of both of them. I gave them more than five shillings: Gregory was on the left hand, my side of the chaise, Barrett on the other side. I gave my purse to Barrett, and so did Mr. Penwarne.</p>
<p>Q. How came you not to give your purse to the man on your side?</p>
<p>Pike. He appeared to be drunk, he reeled upon his horse, I imagined he was in danger of falling from his horse.</p>
<p>Q. Did you give your purse as well as the five shillings?</p>
<p>Pike. Yes, Barrett said, when I gave my purse, let the gentlemen off. Barrett behaved exceeding well, very decent; he did not appear so violent, nor did I apprehend myself in so much danger from him as Gregory; I thought that, as a drunken man, he might have inadvertently fired, and his pistol was within a few inches of my head. As soon as I had delivered my purse, and Barrett had left me, Gregory said, Now G - d d - n you, now for your watches.</p>
<p>Q. Did they both demand your watches?</p>
<p>Pike. Yes, I told him I had none: he said, G - d d - n you, say upon your honour. To comply with his whim, I said, I had none upon my honour; he bid me say so again, which I did; then he said to the driver, D - n you go on, or I will blow your brains out. The driver drove on to Hounslow: when we came to the corner, there were some lusty young fellows standing there. I said, my lods, I am this moment robbed, there is forty pounds a piece reward for you, and I have a brace of pistols, and you may have the horses. They swore they would go after them. I ordered the driver to get fresh horses, and go to London. I was a good deal fatigued, I had come from Bridgwater, which is near a hundred and fifty miles that day; and I got into London about eight o'clock: I went to the coffee house, and sent for one of Sir

<p>Pike. I beg to be excused saying that; the one rode upon a bay horse, the other upon a black horse; the person that was upon my side upon the left hand, was upon a black horse or a more: the person on the right side of the chaise, rode upon a bay horse.</p>

<p>Pike. I did verily believe it was; I said so at the time:</p>
<p>Q. Had you such a recollection of him, that you could say with a degree of certainty that he was one of the men?</p>
<p>Pike. I do verily believe that he was the person that was upon the right hand side of the chaise; his hair was then loose about his shoulders, as it was when he robbed us. I was introduced into the back room, where Sir John was sitting: Barrett was in the outer room, with his hair down. I sat about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour in Sir John's room, when they were both brought in, and examined together. I had a bad crooked sixpence in the purse, I received it in change; I put it into my green purse, and gave it altogether into his hand.

<p>Pike. We were drove a mile in three minutes and a half.</p>
<p>Q. How long might you be coming from Salt Hill to the place where you was robbed?</p>
<p>Pike. I do suppose we were not quite fifty minutes coming: I had my watch in my portmanteau when we were robbed; but when I came into Hounslow I asked what o'clock it was, they said, between six and seven; it was not quite seven.</p>
<p>Q. If you set out at near six, I suppose it must be pretty near seven when you was robbed. This was pretty near Hounslow?</p>
<p>Pike, Yes, we drove pretty fast, as we did all the way. We came from Salt Hill to Hounslow in less than sixty minutes, and were robbed.</p>

<p>Q. Your chaise was going at a prodigious great rate, and the glasses were up: it was impossible to make much observation upon them then?</p>
<p>Pike. I could see them clearly through the glass.</p>
<p>Q. I think you said, they avoided shewing their faces?</p>
<p>Pike. They passed the chaise, and immediately cried, holloa stop.</p>

<p>Pike. I should be very sorry to prejudice the court, I would rather go on the other side. I feel a great deal in my own mind upon this occasion.</p>

When we came to Salt Hill, Mr. Pike seemed to be dubious of our going over the Heath; we did not stay, I believe, at Salt Hill five minutes. It was nearer six than five when we left Salt Hill: we desired Mr. Partridge to give us a good pair of horses to put us over the Heath as quick as possible; we asked for four, but he said, there was no danger in the world, and he would give us a

I put my hand in my pocket and gave him, to the best of my remembrance, about eight shillings, though I think rather more.</p>

<p>Q. How long might he be at the chaise?</p>
<p>Penwarne. He did not detain us above five minutes: he behaved as civil as could be.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw him at Sir John Fielding's, was his hair in the like condition as when he robbed you?</p>
<p>Penwarne. Yes, I remarked his hair a good deal.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take any notice of Gregory?</p>
<p>Penwarne. No, I never so much as looked at him, I heard him swear a good deal, and thought he was drunk, by his talk.</p>
<p>Q. What time in the evening was it, that you was robbed?</p>
<p>Penwarne. I suppose it might be before seven; we drove at a great rate. I did not observe him till I saw him put his hand into his pocket and take out a pistol, then it struck me a good deal; I thought what his errand was immediately.</p>
<p>Q. What coloured horse was Barrett on?</p>
<p>Penwarne. It struck me that it was a bay.</p>

<p>Q. How many miles did you come an hour?</p>
<p>Penwarne. I should suppose twelve or fourteen miles: the horses set off a gallop, and never stopped galloping till we came to a little town, I don't know the name of it, I believe it is Cramford.</p>
<p>Q. How long might you be before you was robbed?</p>
<p>Penwarne. About fifty minutes, I should suppose.</p>

<p>Penwarne. I never saw him before to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Valentine Crew. I was behind the chaise on the 19th of March. When the chaise was coming to town, it was stopped at Hounslow Heath: just as we got to Butcher's Grove, I saw two men coming up to the chaise; I took particular notice of Barrett before he came to the chaise. Barrett rode a brown bay horse: when they came to the chaise, Barrett twice cried, stop; the driver pulled in; and he said, down with your glasses: the other was up close by the driver's side. He cried, down with the glasses; which they immediately did; then he said, I want your money. He was on the right side of the chaise: in less than a minute Gregory came from the driver with another pistol, and said to me, D - n you, if you stir I will blow your brains out. I had a single pistol, with which I was going to blow Barrett's brains out.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure it was Barrett?</p>
<p>Crew. Yes, I am certain of it. I did not take the pistol out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. I understand you was going to fire?</p>
<p>Crew. I did not take the pistol out of my pocket; I unbolted it.</p>
<p>Q. Did Gregory see what you was going about?</p>
<p>Crew. I do not know; he came round by the wheel of the chaise, fronting the hind wheel, and said, if I stirred, or to that purpose, he would blow my brains out, and said, Deliver, deliver, or I will blow your brains out directly. Barrett, I believe, had got the money, and Gregory demanded the watches.</p>
<p>Q. Barrett demanded the money of Mr. Pike?</p>
<p>Crew. Yes, and said, D - n your blood deliver directly.</p>
<p>Q. Look at the two prisoners: what do you say as to Barrett?</p>
<p>Crew. I say, he is the person, but his hair was not done up as it is now. Barrett was on the right hand side of the chaise. I am positive as to Barrett; his hair was hanging strait over his shoulders, in the same manner as it was when he came before Sir

<p>Crew. I believe it was about eight minutes before seven o'clock; I had my watch in my hand about ten minutes before, when on the other heath, it then wanted a quarter of seven; it was not above five minutes after. I observed how long we were going the mile.</p>
<p>Q. The money was given directly as the glasses were put down?</p>
<p>Crew. No, it might be a minute and a half after. When they had got the money, Barrett asked, if they had any watches? Mr. Pike, and Mr. Penwarne said, they had no watches: the prisoners said, have you not, upon your honour. They said, they had not, upon their honour: then they bid the driver drive on.</p>

Just as he was speaking this, the hostler brought in another, which he had dropped at the stable door, which exactly matched that I had taken from him. I then searched his pockets, and found a guinea and half in gold, fourteen shillings and sixpence in silver, a bad sixpence, eight pennyworth of halfpence, and two farthings.

<p>Mr. Barrett asked me to go down with him to Alysbury; he said, he was engaged with a company of comedians. I agreed to go with him; his horse was taken lame, that we could not proceed any further than Longford that night: just as we were going to bed there, these people came, and said, there had been a robbery committed on the road, and they believed we were the people, and accordingly they took us to Bow Street.</p>
<p>Barrett's Defence.</p>
<p>On the Sunday, before I was taken, I had engaged in a party with a company of comedians, I met with Gregory, and asked him to accompany me. We dined at Kew Bridge, and stayed till four in the evening: accordingly we set forward; my horse became lame, I had him bled at Hounslow, for which I paid sixpence. By the time the horse was bled it was quite dusk; accordingly, I said, to Gregory, we must keep up a sharp pace, or else we shall be very late before we come to any place: we rode on, it was quite dark before we got two miles over the Heath. I said, then we would put up at the first house we come at. It had been a very rainy day, I began to repent of my undertaking, because it was such a rainy day. We were riding fastish, I was intimidated; he said, you have got pistols, you can defend yourself. I said, I was not used to be out of an evening, I was not found of it; I would therefore put up at the first house we came to. Accordingly we put up at the King's Head at Longford; we asked if they had any thing for supper; we went first, and saw the horses safe in the stable, and desired them to be taken care of: the lame one, the ostler said, he was very lame, but believed, he would be able to proceed on the journey in the morning: we desired to be called early.

When I returned, I saw the light was removed into my room, I unlocked the street door, and three men run down stairs; they blew their candle out, but the snuff was a-light: hearing them running down stairs, I pulled the door to again, but they wrenched it out of my hand, and rushed out, one, one way, another the other way, and the prisoner ran across the street. Mr. Hudson tripped up his heels as he was running. I saw him next day, before the justice: I did not see him when he was tripped up and taken by Hudson, not to be sure to his person, I went up to my apartment; I found the door wrenched open; I left it double locked when I went out: there were a shirt unmade, an apron, and a piece of cloth dropped on the outside of my door.

She returned with Campion and some other people: she seemed slurried, and said, now they have got into my room; she opened the street door, and they were coming down stairs with as much speed as they could. I cannot say how many came out, it was so dark: I am positive the prisoner is one that came out of the house, I kept my eye upon him; I took him three or four yards from the door, I never had my eyes off him till I took him; I was close to the door: I delivered him to proper people to take care of him, and went home; I was not in the house. I went next day before the justice; there he said, there were two more besides him in the house. I am very positive he is one that came out of the house.</p>

On Friday, the 24th of March, between seven and eight in the evening, I walked out from my chambers in Gray's Inn, to a lodging at Kentish Town, that I had for the sake of the air: that evening, Mrs. Camplin, at whose house I lodged, and I and a young gentleman, my nephew, a studentin physic, took a walk. We set off a little after seven; and in a field, on the other side of Fig-lane, we saw before us, three men in the foot path; one of them staid behind.</p>
<p>Q. It was duskish then, I suppose?</p>
<p>Urquhart. Rather dark, it was pretty dark. The men were about twenty yards off, when we saw them; one of them lagged behind, and stood by the bank: there is a high bank, on each side of the foot-path; I went on and passed that man, and Mrs. Camplin and my nephew followed me; when I came within about a yard and a half of the two foremost men, both of them turned about, and one presented a pistol to my head and said stop or you are a dead man; I was a little alarmed at this; I said, what is the meaning of all this, Sir, said he, your life or your money; he had scarcely finished these words, when my nephew left me and made a blow at the pistol with a stick, that surprized me a little, as I would have given them a little money, rather than run any risk; but, however, he drove the pistol out of the man's hand, and it fell into the ditch, I think, then he beat them about the head, the other two seized me, and pulled me by the neck and arm to get me down, but my nephew knocked them about so, that two of them were under the necessity of creeping off as well as they could, the third who is the prisoner at the bar, had hold of me by the neck, he pulled me down with him; he was knocked down, he fell like a stone, by some lucky blow the young gentleman gave him; we secured him, the other two went away and we heard no more of them; when the man recovered a little from his blows, we said, he must go along with us; he said, he would, my nephew got hold of one of his arms, Mrs. Camplin the other, and we took him

I shewed them several watches; they bought one, they gave earnest for it, and left it to be repaired. After they were gone, I missed a silver case single watch, maker's name, J. Davis. On Monday, one of the men, who were with the prisoner, who bargained for the watch, came for it. I told him, when they were there, on Friday, I missed a watch; he seemed surprised, and said, the Black must have taken it. Having no suspicion of him, I let him have the watch away, he had bargained for. Two or three days after, the prisoner came into my shop, and shewed me an old watch he had, I took the watch, and then charged him with the robbery: he denied it; I sent for a constable, and he was taken to justice Welch's office. I found a watch paper in the watch I took from him; by the direction of that paper I went to Mr. Triquet, in Cranbourne Alley, and there I found my watch.</p>
