<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>Q. Your house is in the city. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know where the things were found. - A. I do not; when I saw the property there they were in the county of Middlesex.</p>
<p>- PURWELL sworn. I was present when the prisoner's box was opened at Mr. Wood's house, in Finsbury-square, on the 29th of April.</p>

<p>Purwell. I saw these things found in her box.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner present at the time. - A. Yes, she said that she bought them in Whitecross-street, at a pawnbroker's shop; this pocket book was likewise found in her pocket with this gold broach, she said that she found them in sweeping the floor about three years ago, but she could not tell where it was that she found the broach and the pocket book; the tablecloth was found in her box, and this napkin.</p>
<p>Ray. On the 29th of April, about half after nine in
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180605210004"/>the morning, her box had been opened before I came, and some spoons had been found in the box, which were delivered to me, the linen I found myself in the box; I searched her pocket and took out this pocket book and the broach; I asked her where she got it, she said that she found the pocket book and the broach when she was sweeping a room, between two and three years ago; I then asked her where she got the spoons, she told me that she bought them at a pawnbroker's in Red cross-street, and gave five shillings or five shillings and three pence for them; I asked her where she got the linen from, she said she had them left her by an aunt of hers; the letters has been picked out, but there is very plain the remainder of the V, on the tablecloth; on the towel there is the remains of the V, and the number 18, on it.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) Are these things your property. - A. With respect to the linen I cannot venture to swear to, but as to the spoons I have no doubt at all.</p>
<p>Q. Is there on the linen any mark. - A. Yes, the towel has a V and the figure 18.</p>
<p>Q. Your surname does begin with a V. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. I want to know whether your linen was so marked. - A. I believe it was.</p>
<p>Q. Were you in the habit of having your linen marked with the initials of your name, and numbered. - A. I was.</p>
<p>Q. From the circumstance of being marked with a V and numbered, do you believe they are yours. A. I verily believe they are, I cannot take upon me to say positively, but I have no doubt in my own mind that the table-cloth and the napkin are mine; with respect to the table cloth we have some of the same identical pattern that I remember in use, but I own that it is not decisive; the spoons I venture to swear positively are mine, they are particularly marked, and I think I know their faces from the frequent use of them; the desert spoon is marked with the crest of a mermaid, the tea spoon has a

I am clerk to Mr. Vandercombe and reside in his house; the broach which was produced I am perfectly confident is my property; the pocket book I believe to be mine, the broach was enclosed inside of the pocket book when I lost it, the pocket book has been very much worn since and defaced, I lost it shortly after it was given to me, I put it in my drawers in my bed room in Mr. Vandercombe's house: I do not know that my drawers were always locked.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I picked up the pocket book when I was sweeping up the room after the carpenters had done working in the room, the young gentleman moved out of his room into another room, I did not consider the pocket book of any value, I thought it was to be thrown away; that gold pin I never noticed was in the pocket book; as for the spoons I gave five shillings and ninepence for them, they have been in my possession near five years, I bought them at a pawnbroker's in Red-cross-street, the table linen has been mine fifteen years, before I ever saw Mr. Vandercombe.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) Whether this is possible to be true that she should have the plate and the linen in the way she states. - A. The linen she says she has had fifteen years; I cannot say any more than I have, it may possibly be the case, but with respect to the spoons they have been in my house before April 1805.</p>
<p>Q. How long was she in your service. - A. Only two months.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180605210005"/>handkerchiefs pawned at his house in the course of the week, he told me had one, it had been fetched out half an hour before I came there, I went to another pawnbroker's, he told me that two of the handkerchiefs that I had described were fetched out that morning, and he had one left, I asked him to stop the person that pawned them and send to me, which he did, and the prisoner was taken to the office in Marlborough-street; after that she owned to the three handkerchiefs and the two shirts that she had taken out of my box.</p>
<p>- ROBERTS sworn. I live at No. 25, Great Windmill-street, I keep a sale shop.</p>
<p>Q. Look at the prisoner at the bar, did you ever see her before. - A. I think so, she came to me on the 28th of April with an old check shirt, said her husband had gone to sea and left her, I told her it was not good enough; she asked me if I bought silk handkerchiefs, she had the ticket of three in her hand, she said she would bring them, instead of bringing three she brought but two, a cotton handkerchief and a silk one; I produce them; I am sure I had them of the prisoner. (The property identified by the prosecutor.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was in distress when I took them, I had not a bit of bread to eat for my child nor myself.</p>
<p>The prisoner called two witnesses, who gave her a good character.</p>

On Sunday, the 20th of April, as I was crying the hour of twelve o'clock, I saw the prisoner sitting down, I asked him what he was about, he said he was easing himself; I put up my lanthorn, and missed the spout, and I saw a lamp lighter's ladder up against the slaughter house, I desired him to get up, I saw the spout under him, he had no shoes on; there was no other person near, I took him to the watchhouse without his shoes, I returned for the ladder, and found the shoes under the steps of the ladder.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) You have no doubt of that lead being yours. - A. I have not the least doubt in the world.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was along with a few relations, it was late before I came home, I went up stairs and pulled my shoes off; I was taken so bad with a pain in my bowels, I came down to ease myself, I saw a man run away; before I could get my breeches unbuttoned the watchman came and took me to the watchhouse.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence.

(The hide identified by the prosecutor.)</p>
<p>Blake's Defence. On the 6th of May last, coming from Bilingsgate (I am a porter, and get my bread at various markets, and sometimes at Bilingsgate, I have a wife and three small children), I had left my basket at Bilingsgate; a man at the corner says, porter, do you want a job, I says yes, he agreed to give me a couple of shillings to take it to the Blue-Coat Boy, he said he was not in a hurry, I might take it at my leisure; I goes home to leave what supply I had, my wife was not at home. That man is totally innocent, you may depend upon it; I asked him to let me leave it there till I found my children; I went to the prisoner's house to buy some potatoes after I had found my children.</p>
<p>Q. Now where is the man that gave you this to carry. - A. I never saw the man from that time to this; frequently as I go along the street I carry things of this sort.</p>
<p>Dodson's Defence. I can say no more; he came in and asked me liberty to put it there while he looked
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180605210011"/>for his children, it remained there during half an hour; during that time Mr. Sapwell came in, I told him Mr. Blake brought it.</p>
<p>Blake. The officer seems to tell you as how the hide was secreted and covered over; I pitched it in the shop, I assure you.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to tell the officer you knew nothing at all about it. - A. If I did, my lord, at the time, it was from the agitation of my mind.</p>
<p>Blake called no witnesses to character.</p>
<p>Dodson called four witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. These breeches are a common colour, you stated that you knew them by a white calico lining, a little spot, and a white metal button, did you ever see any breeches lined with any other calico than white, there is nothing peculiar in their having white calico lining. - A.

<p>Prisoner's Defence. The prosecutor in one place observed that there is a button which is nearly coming off, which supports the gallowses, which is in consequence of his wearing his breeches so high; when I had these breeches this button was perfectly fast, and it is lose now, in consequence of the heavy irons they put on me at Bow-street; I purchased these breeches promiscuously, in the middle of the street of a Jew, I saw them hanging across the man's arm, they attracted my attention seeing them a good pair of breeches, to the best of my knowledge I gave twenty-three shillings for them, if they are stole it is unknown to me.</p>
<p>Q.(to Lavender.) Had he heavy irons on before you took off the breeches. - A. Yes, he had an iron on about a week, and he wore these breeches, because we knew nothing about them breeches.</p>

<p>Q. Did the woman that you picked up assist. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. How came you not to make such an effort as that while you were in the room three hours. - A. I did, I called the watchman, when I was up stairs the watchman knocked at the door; when I said I would break the windows if they would not let me out, Ranger took me by the shoulders, opened the door, and pushed me out.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask for the two pound note. - A. No, at the time that I was put into the court, I called the watchman again.</p>
<p>Q. What court was it. - A. Marygold court, in the Strand; the watchman came to my assistance, he knocked at the door and was refused admittance; he advised me to go to St. Martin's watchhouse, and relate the story to the constable of the night, which I did, the constable came from the watchhouse with me to the house, he knocked and was refused admittance; I told him the situation I was in, and all the circumstance, he saw how my shirt was torn and my hand was bleeding; when he knocked they said Mr. Ranger was gone out and they had lost the key, they could not open the door; we heard Ranger talking to some of the women.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this. - A. That was after two o'clock in the morning.</p>
<p>Q. What o'clock was it when you first went. - A. About a quarter before eleven; the constable went away and desired me and the watchman to remain at the door till he should return, he returned to the watchman and me, we waited at the door till half after six, at last a man came out of the house, we then gained admittance; we went up stairs and found the woman prisoner in bed with her clothes on, the constable took her into custody, and returned down stairs and knocked at Ranger's door, he refused opening it, a girl came from the back parlour and told him if he went through her room there was a little door with a bolt, he might go into it, which he did and found Ranger in bed; after we had got him in custody, he asked leave to go into the yard, the constable gave him leave (he had not quite dressed himself), instead of going in the yard he went up stairs and made off out of the back of the house, and was missing for about a week.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever find your note again. - A. No, I did not see it after it dropped on the ground.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp.</p>
<p>Q. You picked up up this girl and went into Marygold court. - A. She picked me up.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you had been in the room some time before she and you had a dispute. - A. I had not been there above five or ten minutes before the dispute began, I offered her a compliment, but she did not think that was enough; there was some words between us, but there was no disturbance.</p>
<p>Q. Mr. Ranger came up upon being called, and after he had been there a little while he returned down again. - A. He did.</p>
<p>Q. Then this woman put herself against the door, and vowed you should not go till you had paid her what she demanded. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You got down stairs after being there about three hours. - A. Yes, when I got down stairs Mr. Ranger locked the door, Mrs. Gamble came down stairs as the mistress of the house, she vowed I should not go any farther without paying immediately; she saw the note in my hand, she put my hand into her mouth and bit it.</p>
<p>Q. Will you venture to swear that Mrs. Gamble at that time knew that you had a two pound note in your hand. - A. I certainly could not swear to that, I believe she knew it by her attempting to bite me, I resisted by striking her.</p>
<p>Q. Whether with the pain that you received from the bite the note did not drop on the floor. - A. I cannot say.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know how the note went. - A. I should naturally suppose that she took it out of my hand, I can only venture to swear I lost it there.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your oath, will you venture to swear that Mr. Ranger knew any thing at all of your having a two pound note. - A. No.</p>

<p>Q. Was their warehouse broken open at any time and when. - A. On Thursday morning the 17th of April I went to the warehouse; I found the padlock was off, the staple and the door had been forced open, I saw a quantity of cambric muslins laying on the ground.</p>
<p>Q. Did you upon looking at the muslins and cambrics miss any. - A. I did not touch them, it is not my department, I did not touch them till I made Mr. Lewis acquainted with it; when Mr. Lewis arrived, I went in, I found a padlock that did not belong to the warehouse, which was left there, and another padlock which belonged to the warehouse, and an iron crow.</p>

Yes, it was safe as far as I know; I went to the watchhouse and resigned my coat and lanthorn, and about five o'clock I went round again; on my going on to cry the hour of five o'clock, I observed a hackney coach draw up to the warehouse door, I took particular notice of the number, 146, it was a yellow bodied coach, I directly walked down to see what they were about, I had great suspicions that it was a robbery, I saw the property put into the coach, by the coachman and another person who is not here.</p>

<p>SAMUEL TAUNTON sworn. Examined by Mr. Knapp. I am an officer of Bow-street.</p>
<p>Q. From information that you received, did you apprehended the prisoner. - A. I did, in company with Townshend, on the 17th of April last, at No. 20, William's Mews, Devonshire-street, Portland Place, between nine and ten o'clock at night; when the prisoner opened the door I informed him that we were two officers, that I suspected he had some property that did not belong to him, he replied that he had nothing but what he worked hard for, and paid for, and that we were welcome to search any part of his premises that we liked; we went up one pair of stairs and searched two rooms and a hay lost, and found nothing, I then came down stairs and and searched the stable, and inside of the coach.</p>
<p>Q. What was the number of the coach. - A.146, a yellow bodied coach; I then renewed my search up stairs, and opened a window of a back room (his bed room), there was a kind of blind which went up two foot from the lower part of the window, sloping in this way (witness describing); I pushed up the window, and there I found two pieces in paper, and two pieces out of paper, there was four pieces altogether; I then told the prisoner that was what I was looking for, I asked him where he got it, he told me that he found them in his coach when he came home at five o'clock; in the afternoon on the Friday following he was examined at Bow-street, and this property was identified by Mr. Macalpine. The prisoner is the owner of the coach, he told me he had only one pair
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180605210020"/>of plates, he drove them himself.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. (to Macalpine) Look at that muslin, is that one of the four pieces that were missing on that day - A. I believe it to be, I have no doubt of it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was called by a person in Cheapside, at two o'clock in the morning, he ordered me to Finsbury-square, he stopped me at Moorgate, there a person came to the coach, he said something, what I do not know, to the man in the coach; I was desired to go up Chiswell-street, I waited there two hours, when a parcel was brought to the coach; I went away according to his directions, he ordered me to 61, Smithfield, when I got there he stopped the coach again, he ordered me to go to Back Hill, when I got there he pointed to the place opposite of the hill, that leads to Clerkenwell Green, there he went out with the things, he told me he should be back again to pay me my fare; I waited there a considerable time, and during the time I waited I got into the coach, and on my sitting down in the straw I put my arm on the parcel; I waited, no person coming to me, I went home, I informed my wife that I had had a job and had not got my fare; I described the person, saying, that if he called by that description, there was his property; it was on my drawers, I went out with the coach the same day.</p>
<p>Court. Where was you at five o'clock in the morning. - A. I was not home till half after five.</p>
