On Thursday morning the 2nd of April about six o'clock, I was passing Cullum-street, I saw three men come out of the warehouse of Messrs. Darby and Hilton, and the last man that came out was the prisoner; each man had a canvas bag with goods in. The two first men passed me with very little notice; I noticed that they had bags with goods in it. When I came up to the prisoner he spoke to me and says, how are you master. I believe I have known him for five years. I made some reply similar to that; he followed the other two; I was a little struck; I turned round, I saw him go to the other two, I went to the end of the street, I saw the three men go up Lime-street for Leadenhall-street; I then concluded that they might be men employed by Messrs. Darby and Hilton. I went to my employ and took no further notice. On the next day I was passing by I saw a smith working at the door.</p>
<p>Q. You learned the next morning that they had been robbed. - A. Yes; I informed the prosecutors in the course of the day; I described who the prisoner was.</p>

On Tuesday morning I went to the warehouse about seven o'clock in the morning, the lock was on but the padlock was off; I found the door upon the spring lock; there did not appear any marks of violence on the door.</p>
<p>Q. Upon going into the warehouse did you perceive any thing, could you perceive that any thing had been taken away. - A. It was a snowy morning, I observed some footsteps of men in the warehouse, and part of the way up stairs, there was some flakes of snow on the floor; on seeing them footsteps I had some idea the depredators were up stairs, I went up stairs in hopes of taking them, I found no one there; we missed the goods in question; the woollen cloth was taken from the top of the warehouse, and the linen from the two pair of stairs. I had seen the goods a short time before.</p>
<p>Q. What was the value of these goods. - A. About forty pound altogether.</p>

<p>Q. That will make all the difference. - A. It was Wednesday, the 8th day of the month of April, I met him in Lime-street, rather nearer six than seven, about a quarter after six as near as I can guess; I saw the prisoner have a load upon his knot, he took it off and put it in a Hackney coach, and a gentleman in a light coat and a pair of boots gave him a shilling, and asked him whether that would satisfy him; the prisoner said to me he wanted a word with me, I stopped, he said, now I want a pair of good strong shoes; we went to the nearest public house, we had a glass of liquor, I measured him for a pair of shoes, and that

<p>Q. You are sure that all you say is very correct, when did you hear that he was taken up. - A. I never heard that he was taken up till last Sunday was a week, when I carried the shoes home.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to recollect that it was the 8th of April. - A. Because it was my birth-day.</p>
<p>Court. Are you sure it was the 8th of April. - A. Yes, sir, I be.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any body give him a shilling. - A. Yes, a gentleman in a light coloured great coat, a dark coloured waistcoat, and a pair of boots; he asked him if he was satisfied; he had an umbrella in his hand, being a coarse morning; there was another person by his side, he looked like a labouring man.</p>
<p>Q. Did he appear to be in the gentleman's company. - A. They were both by the coach, I cannot tell whether they were in company or no.</p>
<p>Q. When were you applied to to give an account of this. - A. Not before this morning.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to know this was the 8th day of April. - A. Because it was my birth-day.</p>
<p>Q. I want to know how you came to know, it was material for you to prove, that the day on which you saw him was the 8th of April - are you quite sure he was not in prison on the 8th of April. - A. I am positive he was not, except it was late at night.</p>
<p>Cartwright. The prisoner was apprehended on Friday the 3d of April; the trial was put off last session; Wednesday the 8th of April was the first day of the session. On the Saturday before the session he was committed to the Compter, and he was there on the Wednesday following.</p>
<p>The prisoner left his defence to his counsel, called one witness, who gave him a good character.</p>

On Thursday the 23rd of April, about four o'clock in the afternoon, I was in Mr. Wood's shop, opposite Mr. Gray's; in consequence of what passed I went out immediately, and saw Jones and another woman in Mr. Gray's shop, and a little child was playing by the door; I saw Sharp by a sadler's shop, about thirty yards off near Devonshire-street; there was a fourth woman, she was standing at the corner of New-street, a few doors from Mr. Gray's; I went behind the carts in the street, and presently I saw Jones come out and the other woman. Jones had a long duffell cloak on; directly these women came out of the shop, Sharp and the woman at New-street followed them; they all four went together up Rose-alley, which is a narrow alley and thoroughfare into New-street, and into Petticoat-lane; when they were in Rose-alley Jones stooped down, and said to Sharp, I want to tie up my stocking, Jones and Sharp turned into the passage of a house, I turned my face as they could not see me; I saw something pass from Jones to Sharp; after that they all four joined together again, and went up the alley together; I was behind them, I could see distinctly a piece of something under Sharp's apron, but what it was I did not then know; after that she rolled it up in her apron and carried it loose; I took hold of Sharp, Jones and one of the other woman turned to the right and the other woman went to the left; I asked Sharp what she had got; I took the print from her; she said she found it in Rose-alley. As I was bringing it back and the woman to the shop, I met Mr. Gray in Rose-alley, he was pursuing the woman. I have had the callico ever since.</p>
<p>Q. What became of Jones. - A. I took Sharp to the Compter, she gave me information; Shepherd and I went and took Jones about an hour afterwards in Rose-lane; I told her what I took her for; I took her to Mr. Gray's shop, and the shopman said that was one of the women that were in the shop, and had seen her in the shop before.</p>

I had but eighteen pence, I had been to Orange-lane, to buy some oranges; as I was coming along Whitechapel I met my sister, we went into the Coach and Horses, and had a pint of porter; I had fifteen pence halfpenny then; going down the corner of Rose-lane there was some people a quarreling, they began to fight, they were both parted; I said what an odious thing it was for women to quarrel in the street; the officers came, one took the woman I was talking with, and the other took me; they let the other woman go; he says you have been stealing a piece of print; I never was in that gentleman's shop.</p>
<p>Sharp's Defence. As I went up Rose-alley I saw the print lay, I saw no one near it, neither man not woman; when I got to the top of Rose-alley, that gentleman tapped me on the shoulder, and asked me what I had got, I shewed it him, he said he would take me where it belonged to; he took me into the gentleman's shop, they gave charge of me; as for this woman I never saw her before I saw her in the Poultry compter.</p>
<p>Sharp called two witnesses, who gave her a good character.</p>

About ten minutes afterwards I come down and stood at my door; I then saw two men at Mr. Williams' door, one with his face towards the lock, as if he was doing something to it with his hands, and the other with his back towards the door, with a view of watching any thing that might occur. When the man with his back towards the door saw me, he touched the other man, meaning as I suppose that he saw me. I then went into the shop and told Mr. Wilkins, my husband; on our return they were gone. I kept watching, and about a quarter of an hour more,

On looking down the area I distinctly saw another man. I took him as he was scaling the iron railings.</p>

<p>Q. You do not mean that the prisoner was attempting to get away. - A. Yes, I do; he, the prisoner, was pulling me from one side of the street to the other, struggling to get away; we brought him to No. 32, and from thence took him to the watchhouse.</p>

From information from her son, I believe it is, it was a little boy, I traced out Hobbs near Queen-square, she was servant to a gentleman. I searched her box; not finding any thing that led to the charge I went away; I returned back and took Broomfield to the same place; I directed her to stand at the door till she saw Mrs. Hobbs open the door; she challenged her to be one of the women that came to her along with the other prisoner. I took her in custody; Hobbs told me where the gown was pledged. I and my brother officer searched Brand's room, which was underneath the room that was broken open in the same house. I found this bed-winch; I thought by the marks upon the door post it had been used to force the door open. I fitted it to it, and it fitted exactly.

<p>Prisoner's Defence. Mrs. Parkinson has known my family for twenty years. In the year 1804, I became acquainted with her daughter, at which time I was a

<join result="persNameOccupation" targOrder="Y" targets="t18070513-24-defend253 t18070513-24-deflabel157"/>. I have not been capable of following it, owing to a complaint in my head. After she had put her husband in a private mad house, where he remained thirteen months, she permitted her daughter to sleep with me; in one of my mad fits I slept with her daughter; she was to give me seven hundred pounds to buy a commission in the horse-guards; she promised me two hundred pounds; thirty-three pounds I returned her back; nine pound I paid for a gin score.</p>
<p>Court. Do you assert that ever you have been deranged in your mind. - A. Yes, from a nervous complaint in my head. At this time twelvemonth I had a letter from Mrs. Parkinson; she there speaks highly of my character; and adds, that she would protect me for the honour I had done to her daughter in marrying her.</p>
<p>Court. I called on you for your defence.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Mrs. Parkinson by a drunken habit swore her life against me.</p>
<p>Court. It is unbecoming you to throw any implication on Mrs. Parkinson's character. I want you to say something in your own defence.</p>
<p>Prisoner. The infamy of the mother has forced me to do what I have done; she has been infamous enough to take the duplicate of a watch from me; she swore her life against her daughter, and detained her in Tothill-fields. As for the two hundred pounds she said I had, every farthing was laid out in the repair of her mother's house, except forty pounds.</p>

About two o'clock in the morning I was at the corner of a place that goes into Wheeler-street, Spital Fields; I heard the footsteps of some people; I stooped down and had my eye to the corner of Wheeler-street; in a minute or two I catched hold of the prisoner by the lower part of his body; at that time this piece of lead fell from him between him and me. I kept by the lead, and kept hold of the prisoner; he was very much alarmed at my catching hold of him. As soon as he came to speak, I said what did you drop the lead for; he said he had it not. I instantly, when the other officers came up, turned him round to let them see the dirt marks that were on his clothes; the prisoner was secured, and the lead was advertised, and on Tuesday the 5th of May this piece of lead was produced at the office by Mr. Walker, a plumber; I then produced this piece of lead, and it tallied with the other.</p>

<p>Q. You were only put as a sort of clog to him. - A. Just so. Allen charged the prisoner before the magistrate with selling him a stolen horse; the prisoner said he did not steal it. He did not disown but that it was stolen.</p>

The Oxford blue then said they must all change their names, and if we have the luck to sell the cows, as well as the mare, we will all meet at the top of Holborn, and buy new clothes; I'll desert, and we will go down into Yorkshire and steal horses, and sell them at fairs; he said he had met this Benson and the Oxford blue at Windsor, and there this appointment was made.

My watch and ring laid upon the table; they took them both; I will not be sure which took the ring, whether it was the prisoner or the other person, but I am sure the prisoner took the watch; they took them out of my room and fastened my door; I padlock my door when I go out; I sell shoes; they put the hasp on the staple and fastened me in the room; it was about a quarter of an hour before I could get out, I called to my neighbours some time, at last they heard me and took the hasp off and let me out.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180705130018"/> coming out of the house with a tea kettle in his hand, at his usual time of leaving work; I asked him what he had got in his hand, he said nothing; he immediately put his hand behind him, trying to hide it. I immediately collared him, I took him into the warehouse, and sent for an officer. I gave charge of him.</p>
<p>Q. How do you know the kettle to be yours. - A. I have every reason to think it is; I cannot swear to it The prisoner went down upon his knees and begged my pardon, and said it was the first time he had ever done so. I saw the things the officer brought from his lodgings; I can swear to the pottidge pot; that has our private mark upon it.</p>
<p>Cross examined by Mr. Knapp. You do not take your private mark off when they go out of your custody. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Therefore if you had sold this pottidge pot it would have the private mark of your shop upon it. - A. It would.</p>

I went with the constable to the prisoner's lodgings; we found three sauce pans, a pottidge pot, two flat irons, and a gridiron; I can swear to the pottidge pot by the mark. The prisoner owned taking the tea kettle.</p>
<p>- WILLIAMSON. I am a servant to Mr. Scholing. I can only speak to the tea kettle; it was one made by my father, he made one dozen last February.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. I suppose you could not tell one from the other. - A. I cannot speak to that.</p>

<p>Q. Where did you use to keep your money. - A. In the bottom drawer of a chest of drawers.</p>
<p>Q. When you went out on the Tuesday, did you know what money you had left in the bottom drawer. A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was it kept locked. - A. Yes, I always kept it locked.</p>
<p>Q. Had you seen your money in the course of that day before you went out. - A. I had not seen it for a week before, my wife had; when I last saw it there was one two pound note, four one pound notes, and one guinea; I kept them in a tin box.</p>
<p>Q. Upon coming home Tuesday afternoon did you go to your bottom drawer. - A. I had no occasion to go to it; I looked at it and saw the drawer open; I always kept the keys in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Was this woman in the house that day. - A. She was, she was hired that day to look after the children; my wife was gone to church. I looked into the drawer, I was alarmed that the tin case and the contents were gone; the indenture and the money together were gone.</p>
<p>Q. Was the woman in the house when you returned. A. No, she was gone; I was alarmed that she should leave the house so clandestinely; I did not expect her to leave the house till my wife came home.</p>
<p>Q. When did you expect your wife to return. - A. I did not know when my wife would return; when I came home the prisoner was gone, and left the house in the care of the children.</p>
<p>Q. Did the prisoner come back at all. - A. No. I I found her on the Saturday afterwards in Shoreditch in the street, I saw her in company of my brother-in-law, he had found her out.</p>
<p>Q. What age is your children. - A. The eldest is ten, the other is eight; I found the indenture by the prisoner's direction in the neighbourhood of Whitechapel, where she told me she had slept.</p>
<p>Q. Did you get any of your money or your notes again. - A. No, she told me where she had changed the two pound note, that was at a pawnbroker's at Islington; the pawnbroker told me the woman had changed a note; he told me he did not know whether it was a two pound note or a one.</p>
<p>Q. Before she told you that, did not you tell her it would be better for her. - A. No, she made no hesitation of telling me. The tin box contained the whole of the property. She changed the guinea at a gin-shop in Fleet-street; she told me she forced the drawer open and she took them; I found the drawer was forced open; the lock was standing up when I found it.</p>
<p>Q. In consequence of her living in the house did she know that you and your wife kept the money there. - A. I do not know; she further told me that she went with Mrs. Butcher, and this Mrs. Butcher had robbed her of one of the one pound notes. The prisoner told me she had purchased a gown and cap at the pawnbroker's at Islington; he said that she had bought a gown and cap there, but he did not know whether it was a one pound note or a two.</p>
<p>Prisoner. The drawer was open when I went to the drawer.</p>

<p>Q. What time did you return home in the afternoon.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180705130019"/> - A. It might be four o'clock, my husband then was gone out to seek for me.</p>
<p>Q. When you left the house was that drawer safe that you kept the money in. - A. Yes, I looked at the money before I went out; I opened the tin case and I counted it; I opened the drawer by taking another drawer out, and then I could get at the money; I have frequently done that before the prisoner's face; there was one two pound note, four pound notes, and a guinea.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the prisoner after she was in custody. - A. I saw her at the Falcon public house; I asked her what she had done with the things. I told her I would not forgive her for leaving my five children, they might have been scalded to death; she told me if I would forgive her, she would pay me by installments; I said how can you get the money, she said she might pay me in a week; I said what rob another poor family, and distress them as you have me; she said she took it out of the drawer, and she knew it was there, for I shewed it her when I went out; I searched her, I found none of the money; she said she was robbed of a part of it.</p>
<p>- HINKS. You are the brother-in-law to the last witness. - A. Yes. I went in pursuit of this woman, I found her on Saturday the 2nd of May, about a quarter before one, in the street in Shoreditch, facing the Swan public house. I asked her how Mrs. Owen did, she told me she did not know, she had not seen her since Tuesday; I then taxed her with the robbery, and she strongly denied it; I asked her if she would have the kindness to accompany me to Mrs. Green, an acquaintance of hers in Spitalfields, she said she had no objection to go; when we came to Mrs. Green's, Mrs. Green burst out a crying; I had prior to that told Mrs. Green what had past; the prisoner sat down, Mrs. Green told her she had ruined herself, and broke her heart.

<p>Q. Did you get them there. - A.

She then told me she changed a guinea at a wine vaults in Fleet-street; we then all three went to Islington; where she had purchased a gown and a cap, the pawnbroker said she was in his house believed on the Tuesday afternoon, in company with Mrs. Butcher, and bought a gown and a cap, but he could not be positive whether it was a one pound note or a two, that she had changed; then she told me that Mrs. Butcher and her went to Highgate to see a child of hers that she had out at nurse; and that she bought the child a doll that cost her eighteen pence, and a small tea pot that cost her four pence; and coming back from Highgate in company with Mrs. Butcher and the hackney coachman, they called at the Britannia to have tea; they went in the coach again, this woman told her the coachman had done her, meaning that he had taken part of the money away; she went to Mrs. Butcher the next morning, and asked her for the money that she had missed, when she was sober; Mrs. Butcher told her she knew nothing of it, and threw a gown after her, and shoved her out of the door. After that she pawned the gown that she had bought of the pawnbroker for four shillings, and laid it out in gin and spirits; and after that money was spent, she pawned her shift, and had no one on when I took her, according to her own account.</p>
