<p>Q. Which of the prisoners? - A. Ivory; he had hold of the brown mare, I think it was the brown mare; I did not see Turner with the other horse, his father had locked him up.</p>
<p>Q. Then it is a mistake that you found the two prisoners with the horses, because you only found

<p>Q. Was it the horse or the mare that Ivory stood near? - A. I think that Ivory stood at the head of the mare, I am not quite positive, there was a number of people standing about; they said, that Turner's father had secured him, till some officers came, over the stable; I went up stairs, and took him into custody; I brought him down stairs, and took him to the Office, and White went away with Ivory, the other boy, and Wood led the horses down to the Office; then Turner told me there had been another boy riding one of the horses; I asked him what they were riding him for; he said, to sell; there were three horse-dealers looking at them; thinking he might be a witness, I asked him to shew me him, he could not find him; going to the Office, he told me that Ivory and he went to Hendon together with intent to steal lambs, fowls, ducks, geese, or horses, if they could see any; they broke a barn open at Hendon, they stole the horse from the barn, and returning back to town they stole the mare in question off the green from among some others that were there; they charged one another with the same thing backwards and forwards, one laid it to one, and the other laid it to the other.</p>

<p>Q. Did he tell you where he got it? - A.He said he took the bridle from his master, and this bridle being on the poney, I asked him whose horse it was that he was upon; he made answer, that it belonged to his master; I made him dismount the poney, and hold her by the bridle; I drove him and the horse before me to the Mews; I then said, is there any body here that will run for an officer; immediately a person went, and the officers came in the course of ten minutes.</p>

<p>Q. Was the window put to, or only hasped? - A. There was no hasp at all to it, it is a small sash, it draws with a slide, I saw my husband put the sash to, it was only closed; I saw the prisoner put his head and arms in, and the moment I saw him I screamed out; I had seen him the same morning in the house, I know it to be the same face, I looked very stedfast at him, but the fright seized me much; he took nothing away from me.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your screaming out, what did he do? - A. He went to roll off from the tiles; he got up the shed and on the tiling, to get into my window; my husband got out of bed, and saw him roll off the tiles.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180405160006"/>Q. Good woman, had you the candle within the room at the window, or had you lit the rushlight? - A. I had not lighted the rush-light, I was going to light it.</p>

Eldridge, here is a man coming in at the window; I immediately jumped out, and saw the prisoner go from the window, I knew his person before, I saw his body but not his face; I had suspicion before, and sat up on purpose on Saturday night to watch; a neighbour of mine told me, on Saturday the 5th, that he saw some persons of suspicious character about my house; I put my family to bed that night, there are two ways to my house, I shut up the house, and left the candle burning in the bar, and after shutting the front door, I went and walked in the street to see if any body went up; about half after one at night, I saw a man and a woman go up to the front of my house; I followed up, and saw the two prisoners close to the door; I said to them, what do you want here; I spoke to both of them; the man made answer, d - n it we only want a glass of gin; I said, you did not come after a glass of gin; the woman said, let us have a drop of gin; to have a better sight of them I went and unlocked the bar, and went into the bar, a misfortune happened, the candle went out; he said, governor, give me hold of the candle, I will get you a light; the prisoner Williams got me a light, and then I served them each with a glass of gin.</p>
<p>Q. Having seen these prisoners so satisfactorily that night, can you say it was the prisoner at the bar that rolled off the tiles? - A. I saw them again on Monday morning; when the man rolled from the tiles, I put on my breeches, and went out immediately, I pursued them in the street; I saw the woman stand close by the tiles, she said, make haste, come along; the tiles broke where he rolled off, and one of the rafters gave way, and he fell; she said, get up, come along, make haste; I sleep in the front room, the house is back from the street, there is a shed on the right-hand side going up, at the front of the house, and any person getting on the tiles of that shed may easily get in, the window is not above a foot, or a foot and a half, from the top of the tiles; it is a sliding sash window, without any hasp.</p>
<p>Q. When you came down, you saw the two prisoners at the bar run away? - A. I did; I saw the man go first, and the woman follow; a neighbour of mine was coming up the gateway, he said to me, it is a tallish man, and a shortish woman.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw this neighbour of your's, the prisoners then had got out of sight? - A. They got out of the gateway over to Gloucester-court, I was as quick as possible, I was not above two minutes; I then ran after them, I went over to them, and catched him by the collar; he resisted very much, made use of very bad language; he swore to me, and said, you b - y thief, what did I want; I said, what did you want, getting in at my window; he tried to get from me, and dragged me near twenty yards to a corner of an alley; the woman stuck close to him, I did not observe her assist him in any thing; there were some women standing at the end of the alley, they said, that is the thief; a neighbour was coming by, his name is Prince, and the watchman came up, and we secured them both that night.</p>
<p>Q. Do you recollect when you went to bed, whether there was any thing on this chest of drawers? - A. There was a gilt metal watch, and a parcel of halfpence in the room; near to the drawers there was a club-box containing twenty or thirty pounds, about three or four yards off; and on the drawers there were about ten or a dozen shillings, I had not counted them; he had opened the window far enough that I could easily get in or out, or any middling sized man; I gave charge of them both that night; the watchman was negligent, and did not search either; I positively swore to the woman; the officer was reprimanded, and fined forty shillings, by the Magistrate; I took her up again on the Saturday following of the Monday.</p>
<p>JOSEPH PRINCE sworn. - On the 7th of May, I was coming from my benefit-club about half past eleven at night, I saw Mr. Eldridge coming along with only his breeches and shirt on; we took the man up, and the woman followed us to the watch-house, the watchman took him to the watchhouse.</p>

<p>Prisoner Williams's defence. I had been hard to work that day, I mended two pair of shoes, and was not done till nine at night, and I had to take them as far as Tooley-street before I sold them; coming along I met this woman, and was going over the way to an alley to get some drink; this man came to me, and said, were not you up at my window; he went away, and brought another man to me, he tore my jacket; I said, if you are a constable do not use me bad; he called two watchmen, I laid hold of each of their arms, and went with them.</p>
<p>Prince. He tried to make his escape before the watchmen came up; I did not tare his jacket, he tore my waistcoat.</p>
<p>Prisoner Nun's defence. Mr. Eldridge gave charge of me the same night; he told me, after my name was taken down in the book, I might go home, and come again in the morning; he said to me, what a d - d piece of nonsense this is, I cannot swear to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180405160007"/>Williams; tell him from me that I cannot swear to him, nor my wife neither. He made it his business to follow me to Playhouse-yard, and told me the same, and last Saturday he took me up on the same suit; he said at the watch-house he could swear to me, but he could not swear to the man.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I saw her in the street the next morning, and I said to her, tell me the truth, did you come after the club-box, or privately to rob me? she said she did not know what he was after, he was so drunk.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell her you were not positive to Williams? - A. I never did.</p>
<p>Q.(To Prince.) When the prisoner at the bar tore your waistcoat, did he appear to be drunk? - A. He did not.</p>

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. Do you know that of your own knowledge? - A. I heard so; there was a very large dog that we left in the house; he was out of the house then; not seeing the dog, I immediately pulled the door to, and desired her to fetch the watchman; when the watchman came, I begged his lantern, and I found my bed-room had been entered by some person, and a pair of kerseymere breeches, a pair of pantaloons, a metal watch, and a toilenet waistcoat, had been taking from a large trunk in the room.</p>
<p>Q. Was the trunk locked? - A. No; I heard nothing of the things till about ten days; I was passing Golden-lane, and saw the kerseymere breeches in the shop of a salesman, his name is Parr; I gave him a deposit, and desired him to put them by; I went to a Magistrate, and traced them to the prisoner; on the same day she was apprehended; she denied having any knowledge of it; she said she never had them.</p>
<p>Q. You are sure this happened on the 15th day of April, on a Sunday? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any violence used in order to get into your room? - A. The bed-room door was never fastened.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any violence used to the house? - A. Yes, the door must have been opened by a pick-lock key.</p>
<p>Q. That was more likely to be used by a man than by a woman? - A. I should think so myself.</p>
<p>Q. You did not see any of these articles till about ten days after? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the prisoner's house? - A. In Wentworth-street, Spitalfields.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know she is a married woman? - A. I think she said she was before the Magistrate, and that she lived with her husband.</p>
<p>Q. There is a person of the name of Abrahams, a witness, a Jew? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. He was taken up for this? - A. He was, on the same day.</p>

<p>Q.(To the prisoner.) Do you mean to say you never was in Drewett's house? - A. No, I had not been two hours in London; I never had nothing but the two towels.</p>
<p>Q.(To Kennedy.) You saw him pick up the two towels? - A. I saw him and the boys pick up all the things.</p>
<p>Q. You saw him drop several things? - A. Yes, they dropped from him as he was running; first one, two, and three.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know the two prisoners at the bar? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Have you known them before? - A. I have known King for three years, and Mussard for two years.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this? - A. About a quarter before seven o'clock at night, I saw the gentleman's chaise coming along Long-lane.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the same gentleman come along Smithfield? - A. Yes; he drove to the King's Head, and there he stopped; I saw King take a knife out of his pocket and cut the strap; I do not know whether it was a strap or a rope; then he took it up on his arms and put it on his left shoulder, and went towards the end of Long-lane.</p>
<p>Q. At that time, when you observed King cut the straps, whereabouts was the other prisoner? did you see the other prisoner there? - A. He was standing a few yards from where Ryland was standing.</p>
<p>Q. Were they standing in Smithfield; Ryland and Mussard? - A. Just against the cross-way; it may be about a dozen yards from the chaise; Ryland was not half a yard from me, Muslin was standing two yards from me, and close to King.</p>
<p>Mr. Gleed. Q. After King had taken away the box from the chaise, what did King do with the box? - A. He went towards Long-lane with the box on his shoulder; as soon as they left me, I went to the King's Head, and informed the gentleman of it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any thing pass after at the end of Long-lane? - A. I saw them all three together, they were one on each side, and King in the middle.</p>
<p>Court. Q. Who had the box? - A. King; King was in the middle, and Muslin and Ryland were on each side, that was all I saw then; I went to the King's Head, and informed the gentleman, he was gone to Mr. Scott's, the toy-shop; he came to me afterwards; I did not tell him then that I knew the prisoners, I described the men.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure these are the two men? - A. I am sure these are the two men, and Ryland was the third; and the next day I saw Ryland in Smithfield, he offered me a one-pound note, and I would not take it; King offered me a one-pound note, he was in company with three men, one of the men was of the name of Higgins; King put his hand in his pocket, and clapped me on the shoulder, and said, here, take this.</p>
<p>Q. What did he offer it for? - A. He did not say.</p>
<p>Q. Did they see you were on the watch? - A. Yes, they saw me standing there.</p>
<p>Q. I am talking of the day before - did they see you the day before? - A. I do not know whether they saw me or no, I saw them.</p>
<p>Q. It was light enough for them to see you, if they had a mind to see you? - A. One of them stood close by me, about a yard off, and the other two yards off.</p>
<p>Q. At the place where they were standing, could they see the chaise? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Mr. Gleed. Q. Did any other thing pass? - A. On the Monday following, as I was going to my brother's in Golden-lane, I saw Ryland and Muslin standing together at a public-house door.</p>
<p>Court. Q. What time of the day? - A. It was in the evening, about eight o'clock; he asked me where I was going.</p>
<p>Q. Who asked you? - A. Ryland; I said, to my brother's; he then said he wanted to speak to me.</p>
<p>Q. Did you stop? - A. I did; he asked me what I meant to do in this business, those are the words he said to me; I said, to do that which was right; he said, if you do nothing in it, I will give you a couple of guineas.</p>
<p>Q. Which of them was it that said that? - A. I do not know which.</p>
<p>Q. Could the other man hear, whoever it might have been that said that? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. At the time that you saw King doing the act that you were talking of, Muslin and Ryland were as far off as you were? - A. I was within three yards.</p>
<p>Q. Muslin and Ryland were close to you? - A. Muslin was, and Ryland was about two yards off; I was standing at the cross way just where they cut the trunk from the back of the chaise.</p>
<p>Q. At the second time you met Ryland and Muslin, how far distant was Muslin from Ryland? - A. The second time we met was at a public-house door.</p>
<p>Q. Do you mean to swear, that, talking to one man, that another man must hear? - A. He might if he liked.</p>

<p>Q. In consequence of any information did you go to his house, and when? - A. On Monday the 16th of April I went to his house opposite the Red-lion, Hampstead, I told him I was coming that way, as he had offered me a chimney-piece for sale I thought it was a good opportunity; he very readily shewed it me; when I saw it I knew it to be mine; I then asked him if he could let me have a wider shelf; he said if I liked the chimney-piece as it was I might make a wider shelf for it; I told him I wished to have it without any alteration, therefore if he could make me a shelf to suit my purpose I would call and treat with him; he said he had a shelf at Ship's that would do for me, and after a pause he said it would not, it was not so wide as that; on that same morning I called again, I saw a little slip of marble in Ship's presence that I knew to be mine; I caused the prisoner to be apprehended immediately; the slip was brought from Ship's the next day by the officer.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. Whether that stone you swear to, and this chimney-shelf which he readily shewed you, was not at one time or other to be made up in a chimney-piece for you? - A. At no time; the shelf is mason's work; he had no mason's work from us in Portland-road; he had then a small pedestal to make for us.</p>
<p>Q. He was employed by other masters as well as you? - A. Certainly; the prisoner is a carver, he never was employed by us in doing any thing like a mason.</p>
<p>Q. What is Ship? - A. He is a polisher of stones.</p>
<p>Court. Q. You went to this man's house under the idea of buying a chimney-piece? - A. Yes, I thought it was an opportunity of seeing whether it was mine.</p>
<p>Q. Where does he get chimney-pieces from, he only being a carver? - A. I understood then from him he made chimney-pieces.</p>

<p>Prosecutor. I told Waterman, that, if I had this stone brought from my yard to compare with that stone found upon him, he would see that nothing but a saw parted it; there is a shake in each; he said, he could not help it, he bought it of a man in the Curtain-road; he took the child from his wife, and in a moment threw it into her lap, and then run away across the fields; we went after him, and took him; I have since compared it, I am positive it was sawed off the piece of marble in my yard, because of the shake, and the black veins answer one with the other, and these corners taken off there; its rough part is taken from the rock. (The prosecutor identified the pieces of marble, by comparing them both with other pieces of marble they had been sawed from, which corresponded.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I purchased the marble of Nevill Edmonds, he lived in the Curtain-road, since that he let his yard to go to Norfolk, I paid him twelve shillings a foot for it.</p>
