<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley. You have been a little acquainted with the prisoner - A. Yes, he keeps horses and carts.</p>
<p>Q. Formerly you were good neighbours together - have you not been in the habits of lending to each other - A. If he asked me to lend him a thing I lent it to him.</p>

<p>Q. Your father is an attorney, you keep his house - A. Yes, I do. On the 13th of May, about five o'clock in the afternoon, I had occasion to go to my sideboard drawer in the dining room up stairs where I keep my laces: I took up my card of lace, I found it had been cut - three yards of this broad lace, two of this narrow lace, and one yard from a third card.</p>
<p>Q. Was this drawer kept locked - A. Yes, and the key in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what number of yards was on each card - A. On the Sunday before I had seven yards of one piece of lace, seven yards of the other, and nine yards of another.</p>
<p>Q. Upon which did you find the greater number of yards taken away - A. From the broad lace - that was nine yards; it was all Valenciennes lace. I am sure I never left the key in my drawer, and I am quite sure I saw them there on the Sunday; I had measured it shortly before the Sunday.</p>
<p>Q. Are you quite sure that on the Friday there were three yards deficient of the broad lace - A. I am.</p>
<p>Q. On your thinking they were something deficient on the Friday, did you take the trouble to measure them and see how much they were deficient - A. I did; and I found that quantity I have mentioned deficient: I came down and said, Mary I have been robbed of my lace and by you; she was very insolent and offered a great deal of abuse; she asked me if I meant to make her a thief; I said she undoubtedly was the thief, there was nobody in the house to go to it but her. After denying it repeatedly, she said Miss Combe I have stole the lace, if you will not tell your father I will bring it every bit back again, it is at my aunt Murray's, it is safe. I had never seen her aunt Murray then. I said run Mary and fetch me back my lace, and I will not tell my father.</p>
<p>Q. Nobody else was by but yourself and her - A. No; she went out as if to go to her aunt's to fetch me back my lace; of course I exported it; she returned with her aunt, they both came in together, and said they had sold it to two strange men.</p>
<p>Q. What passed before that - something must have been said - A. The prisoner said this is my aunt Muray, she has something to say to you. I said, May have you brought back my lace that you promised me, she said no, I have not; then I says, if you have not I must go and tell my father, and immediately I went and made him acquainted how I had been robbed; my father said, Mary if you have pawned the lace give me the duplicates, and there is the door for you, and he would have paid her her wages; she said, and her aunt also, that they had not the duplicates, they had sold the lace to two strange men; they did not know how much for; at last they said they had burnt the lace; she told two or three stories at that time; she first of all said, that she had sold the lace to two strange men; then she said that Mary brought it to her on Wednesday morning; that she said in the hearing of the prisoner, and told her to take care of it till she called for it; that she never saw the prisoner afterwards till the Friday; on that day the prisoner came to her and said aunt I want the lace, for Miss Combe has missed it. and for fear you should be in trouble and the lace should be produced against me, here goes, and crammed it in the fire, and her aunt saw her burn it. My father not believing it, sent for an officer to take charge of her; Mr. Perry came, he took charge of her. I asked the prisoner how she came to rob me; she said she took the key slily out of my my pocket, cut the lace, and put the key slily in my pocket again. I never missed the key out of my pocket. I believe she said that in the presence of the officer.</p>
<p>Q. Did you used to leave your bed room door open - A. She used to call me of a morning; she might have had an opportunity of taking the key out of my pocket; she did not say how she took them out, only that she took them out unbeknown to me.</p>
<p>Q. How much did you give a yard for this lace - A. Thirty shillings a yard for the broad lace, and eight shillings a yard for the other lace.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any person here that knows what lace you had - A. No; the lace has not been found; if she had returned the duplicates I should not have come here. I missed the lace about five o'clock; the prisoner was taken up the same evening about five o'clock; she had her hearing the next day. I always looked upon her as a very honest girl before this, and I hope mercy will be extended to her; I took her from the recommendation of a friend who knew her.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. How long has this girl lived in your family - A. About six weeks.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you had the lace - A. I suppose these four years; I bought eleven yards and a half of the broad lace; I have used two yards and a half of the broad lace.</p>
<p>Q. Mrs. Murray is not here - A. No.</p>
<p>COURT. When did you cut the two yards and a half from the broad lace - A. About four years ago.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. After your supposed loss - did you ascertain by measure whether any was taken off - A. Yes, it has been taken.</p>
<p>Q. Now you cannot misunderstand the question, I will repeat it again lest you should - you say you saw the lace on the Sunday before the Friday, then it contained nine yards - we are correct about that - A. You are.</p>
<p>Q. And shortly before that Sunday you had measured it, it contained nine yards then - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you on the Friday, when you found it deficient
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180807130005"/>measure it again - A. I did; in my father's presence; I did not measure it in the prisoner's presence. I said how many yards I had been robbed of before the magistrate.</p>
<p>Q. How came you not to tell her how many yards you had lost - A. Because I did not know till I had measured it.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to measure the lace behind the girl's back - A. My father charged her in custody immediately and I measured the laces the next day.</p>
<p>COURT. Did it neither occur to you nor your father to measure the lace before you took the prisoner in custody - A. No. I told the constable it was about two or three yards of the Valenciennes lace; and that I missed lace to the value of five pound; I did not say how many yards, nor did he ask me.</p>
<p>- PERRY. I am an officer of the Thame police. The prisoner was given into my charge; Miss Combe charged her with stealing four or five yards of lace, of different sorts; the prisoner and her aunt were present, they seemed to be very much alarmed. No lace has been found. Mrs. Murray was bound over; she is not here.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. She told you there were four or five yards missing; that was all she said - A. Yes; she did not say of the value of four or five pounds.</p>
<p>The prisoner left her defence to her counsel, called one witness, who gave her a good character.</p>

In Holywell Street the prisoner at the bar came to me as I was going the hour ten o'clock on the 29th of May; he ask me where my box was, I ask him what he wanted with my box, he said he should like to sit down and eat his supper in the box, he had some victuals in his hand; I asked him the reason he did not go home, he said his master and he had some words, his master had discharged him, he said that his relations lived at a distance from town, he would not wish to go till it was light; I told him it was very seldom I went in the box and sat this hot weather, he might sit in the box and eat his supper; when he went in the box he asked me what I would drink, I told him I had had my usual allowance I wanted no more; he said he had a crown piece, and somebody told him they would not give more than four shillings and three-pence for it; I looked at it, it was a very good one; I told him if he wanted a pint of beer to go to the public house, the landlord would take it; he went in the public house, and brought a pint of ale and a glass; I blamed him for spending so much of his money. After he had ate his supper, he asked me if I could find a bottle; a bottle was procur'd, he went and bought three half quarterns of peppermint, when he had ate his supper, he said he should sit at the bottom of the box and have a sleep. I left him in the bottom of the box apparently asleep, when I was going the hour of eleven he followed me, he said he could not sleep contentedly, he would rather walk by the side of me; in walking along he said he had got a very good find, he had got some yellow boys, he could not tell how many, he had not counted them; he put them out of the nutmeg grater and counted over fourteen guineas, he said he had no pockets. I told him it was not safe to carry them about without a pocket. I begged him to put it into my hands, I would take care of it till the morning for him; he said he had some pieces of paper, he could not tell the value of them, or whether they were good for any thing or not. When I came to the box I was short of candle, I asked him to get me a candle and a halfpennyworth of snuff; when he returned he shewed me the notes; I found them to be two five pound notes he said he had another, it was put up in two squares, but by some means or other he had lost it; he and I went in pursuit of this note; we could not find it.</p>
<p>Q. Where did he suppose he had lost it - A. He could not tell where.</p>
<p>Q. Had he any more money about him - A. Two dollars and a shilling he shewed me; he told me he found them in one of Mr. Rhodes's fields, the notes the money, and the knife that he ate his supper with, he found them altogether in a rag; this is all the money he produced to me, he went to the public house to get some more liquor; the landlord came and asked me whether I sent him I said No, I desired the landlord to detain him while I went for the officer of the night. I delivered up the boy to the officer of the night.</p>

The coat, pocket handkerchief and apron, are my husband's; the shirts are worth seven shillings each, the coat half a crown, the new holland shift, fourteen shillings; this pillow case is mine.</p>
<p>Lyon's Defence. I get my living buying and selling old clothes. On the 2nd of June a young man asked me if I would buy two shirts; I gave him six shillings and sixpence for them; I went and pledged them for five shillings. I do not think it is my place if any body brings things to me to ask them whether they stole them or not.</p>
<p>Whittingham's Defence. That apron is my own, I bought it; on Wednesday the 1st of June, I got up from my lodgings in Wentworth street; I went to this woman, I told her I was going to my diseased mother at Deptford; I had a bundle, I took it away with me, which was a waistcoat in a handkerchief.</p>

<p>Q. On the 26th of May was there a sale in Mr. Eddis's rooms - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Among the articles was there a watch with a chain and seal - A. There was, in a place that was partitioned off.</p>
<p>Q. Were they afterwards produced - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner at the bar - A. I do, he was in that quarter of the room where these articles were; I missed them on the day of the sale, about three quarters of an hour after I saw the prisoner in the room. About ten days after the loss of these goods, I went to Newgate street to pay an account; on my way to Newgate street I called in at Mr. Abbott's who were selling off their China; immediately on my entering the room, I saw the prisoner Fazakerly, I accosted him with how do you do; on my going into the room he was coming out, so that we soon met each other, I the moment I entered the room, saw the seals, I kept my eye on the two seals that I saw suspended to a watch chain; on my going near him to identify these seals; I observed him put them under his waistcoat. I immediately made a snatch at them, observing that he had some pretty seals there; upon my seizing the seals the prisoner said something, but however what was said by him was unintelligible; he made his way to the door quickly, I following of him; when he got into Fleet street (this house is the corner of Bride's passage); he attempted to make the best of his way, he was just upon the point of running, I seized him by the collar, he asked me if I meaned to tear his shirt, I told him no, but he must go along with me; he said he only meaned to go the back way; I entwined my arms around him, and he walked peaceable with me to the Strand, towards where the property was taken from, to Mr. Eddis's; Mr. Eddis being out I sent for him, upon
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180807130011"/>on Mr. Eddis's return he came into the parlour where the prisoner and I were; I then delivered to Mr. Eddis the two seals and part of the chain that I snatched from the prisoner; when I snatched at them they came off the chain being very slight. Mr. Eddis then said where is the watch sir; he pulled it out of his pocket, together with the remainder of the chain; Mr. Eddis then said where is the gold neck chain besides; the prisoner pulled out a pocket book and produced the duplicate of a chain. He was then taken into custody.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. I observe, Mr. Smith, at the time you saw the prisoner, after you saw him at your rooms, ten days had elapsed - A. I believe so.</p>
<p>Q. So his possession of this property was after he had been ten days in your room - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Your's is a public room and of course open to any body - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was there many persons there that day - A. No; very few; there was none of the plate dealers there that day.</p>
<p>Q. My purpose is answered if there were other persons there; how many persons were there - A. I will say to the amount of eight persons where this watch was deposited.</p>
<p>Q. How long before you missed the articles had you taken an account of the things in the sale room - They were all there about an hour and half before the plate sale; the plate sale does not commence immediately.</p>
<p>Q. Then for what you know there may have been twenty people passing and repassing in that room; it any person had been so disposed as to take them they might; it was an open room for any body - A. I should not have let a chimney sweeper or a dustman in there: we admit none in that room but persons of genteel appearance, Mr. Fazakerly is a of a very respectable appearance.</p>
<p>Q. How lately before had you taken stock - A. I believe that does not apply to sales every morning; an hour and a half before the sale commences we call over the sale; this was a metal watch, lot one; we had it two clear days in our possession; I know of the watch coming to us; I know it was in our sale room.</p>
<p>Q. How long has Mr. Eddis had this sale room in the Strand - A. About two years. I am a clerk to him.</p>
<p>Q. You are not partner to him - A. I am not.</p>

<p>Q. Do you recollect the sale on the 26th of last June at your rooms - A. I do.</p>
<p>Q. Relate to his lordship and the jury what brought you to your house - A. I was sent for; I was introduced into the parlour; I asked the prisoner what he had done with the watch; he produced it me.</p>
<p>Q. Was that watch sent to you for sale - A. It was, by Mr. Patmore on Ludgate hill; I then enquired what he had done with the gold neck chain; he told me he pawned it at Mr. Milton's, Westminster road; he produced me the duplicate and supplicated for mercy.</p>
<p>Q. The watch having been lost I believe you paid for it - A. I paid two pound seven shillings; the duplicate of the gold neck chain I have in my pocket book.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Do you know whether it is an unredeemed pledge - A. I should presum not.</p>
<p>Q. Unredeemed pledges, I believe, when the time is out. then they are to be sold - A. They are compelled to sell them.</p>
<p>Q. These pledges when they get into your hands they are to fetch what they can, and according to the sale and the quantity of bidders they are sold. - A. Certainly.</p>
<p>Q. Therefore this article when it came to the hammer it might not have fetched more than thirty eight shillings - A. I will save you a great deal of trouble; it was not to be sold under two pound ten shillings; I as agent am to take my commission out of it.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. I never received any money for them, and if I suffer for it I cannot help it.</p>

<p>Q. What sort of a building are these sand houses - A. They are about twelve feet one way and nineteen the other; they are built with brick, sticks laid on the top of them and covered with straw; there were six sand houses in a row; I slept in the third and the prisoner slept in the second.</p>
<p>Q. How long after you reached home did the prisoner come home - A. In about twenty minutes or a quarter of an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Did the child come home with them - A. I do not know. Main said, Bob are you here; I said, yes; he said I thought you had not come away; I said, yes, I said I have come from the house this quarter of an hour; he said if he had known when I came away he would have come with me.</p>
<p>Q. Had he any light with him - A. No light as I thought. I went to bed and went to sleep; within the course of two hours I was alarmed by my shirt sleeve being on fire; I pulled off my shirt and came out naked; Hollingsworth lent me a blanket to put round me; I went to the prisoners at the bar, they were standing about twenty yards from me; I said how, in the name of God, could these sand houses be set on fire. The man was dressed and the woman had a gown and petticoat on; whether she had a cap or bonnet on I cannot say; I said, Reuben, sure you was not so foolish as to bring a lighted pipe in; he said no, by God, I had no light at all; I then went and alarmed the three other people that were in the sand houses; then I heard him crying out the child, saying my child is burnt.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear the child crying at all - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was it possible for him to have got the child out - A. The child might have been got out when I got out; but whether it was dead then I cannot say; we could not have gone in the sand house, but we had hoes and rakes that we could have reached him and dragged him out; the next morning I went in the sand house, the child was in a lump of straw laying within a yard of the sand house door; I took a hoe and found out the child; the straw blazed up; there was a jug of water brought and throwed on the straw and on the child; I carried the body out.</p>

<p>Q. On the night of the 22nd of June, what time did you go to bed - A. At eleven o'clock. I secured the shop the last thing before I went to bed; I saw the bolts of the door fast, top and bottom, and the screws of the windows were all fast.</p>
<p>COURT. Is your shop the lower part of your house - A. Yes; I occupy the whole house; I got up a little after seven in the morning, and I went down to the shop a quarter before eight o'clock. I went to the shutters; in taking down the second shutter I perceived it drop into my hands; the screw of that shutter which was fastened in the shop remained in; it was cut in the wood; after I took down the shutters, I saw a pane of glass broke quite out; I then returned into the shop to see what I had lost; I discovered seventeen pieces of Irish linen gone; there were a great many pieces of prints taken down and very much disfigured by some person's feet; there were the print of feet upon the prints as if there had been more persons than one.</p>
<p>Q. Whereabouts is the value of these seventeen pieces of Irish linen - the whole amount - A. The cost price is about fifty pound. I found the shop door was left open; upon discovering my loss I went to the Foundling watchhouse.</p>
<p>Q. There you got some information that led you up to St. Giles's watchhouse - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What part of your property did you see - A. I saw six pieces of Irish linen; I looked at them; I knew them to be mine; they have my wife's marks upon them; the prisoner was there in custody; the goods were kept and produced before the magistrate by them.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Reynolds. I think you said you had been about a month in that business - A. I had.</p>
<p>Q. That is a very short time, you had not an opportunity of being acquainted with one thing any more than another, how do you know it was Irish linen - A. I know it by the invoice.</p>
<p>COURT. Do you know Irish linen when you see it - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. From the appearance of the things that
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180807130019"/>were thrown about, must it not take up a great deal of time - A. Yes, and to take out the glass in the manner it was done.</p>

<p>- COOK. Q. You are a patrol - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Where is your beat - A. Down Russel square. On this night, just before three o'clock, I was going my round from Southampton row, I was going to Woburn place, about two hundred yards off; I saw the prisoner and another man, he had the bag on his shoulder; I stood up against the pillar of Bolton house, where I could have command of them and they could not see me. When they came abreast of me; I sprang out and seized the other man, I said what have you got here; the prisoner faced round and struck me upon the head as hard as he could; the blows rather stagnated me for a bit; the other threw the bundle upon my toes, and took towards Bedford place; I alarmed the constable; the rattles sprung in all directions; the prisoner got within two yards of Bedford place, by that time I had sufficiently recovered myself to pursue him; the prisoner at the bar seeing a watchman coming out of the box, run from him; I then thought to cross him; he being of lighter heels got away; the watchman in Guildford street stopped him; I am sure it was the prisoner at the bar, and he was the same person that struck me with a knotted stick, it was like a black thorn stick. When I saw the watchman in Guildford street stop him, I went towards the property which lay at Bolton house door, captain Blackhall's door; I heard him say when he was locked up in Marlborough street, D - n my eyes, we have made a crack, but we are spoiled; he was going on further in the discourse, but he saw me; then he stopped.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Reynolds. You saw him very distinctly - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You are quite sure that you saw him - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. This was the 22nd of June - A. It was the 23d of June in the morning; it was break of day. When I stopped the other man, the property was tied up in two separate parcels, it was in a bag.</p>
<p>Q. And it was not the prisoner that had the bag - A. No.</p>
<p>COURT. It was just before three o'clock when you stopped him - A. Yes.</p>
