On the 6th of February last I retired to rest about eleven o'clock at night, and as I supposed about two or three o'clock in the morning, I heard a noise, I attributed it, however, to some company going away from the next house; it did not induce me to arise.</p>
<p>Q. What does your family consist of - A. Myself and wife, and I think at that time there were three maid servants sleeping in the house, and the children.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what state your house was in when you went to bed, as to its fastenings - A. I did not particularly examine it that night, I remained till about seven o'clock in the morning, when one of my servants knocked at my door, and informed me that the house had been robbed; I immediately went down stairs, I found the kitchen in disorder, the drawers of the dresser being open.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose then it was quite light - A. It was then quite day light, and the door on the side of the house, leading out into the yard, was open; I concluded they went out that way; there was no marks of violence there. I missed several things, a great coat, half a dozen pair of boots, and two gowns belonging to my wife, a wine strainer and some silver spoons; I had a servant of the name of Ive, she informed me that she had lost a considerable quantity of wearing apparel. Upon this; after I had dressed myself, I went into the fore court, where I discovered a small iron bar which goes across the outside of the laundry window was forced away, it had been fastened on by screws, it appeared to have been wrenched off; I rather suppose that the inside shutter had been neglected to be fastened, besides that there were two little mortise bolts which fastened the window down at the bottom; I apprehended the bolts had not been properly put in; and when this little bar was moved, which was the centre bar of three bars, the window would open, and that is the way they easily could enter. The cross bar was in the center of the two others, and I think there was room enough for a man to go through between the two others. The laundry communicates to the kitchen and the lower part of the house, the laundry was in the front, and the kitchen at the back of the house.</p>
<p>Q. When you heard the noise in the night what quarter of the house did that noise seem to you to come from - A. I awoke in the night; it was not sufficient for me to tell where it was; the impression on my mind was that it was a step of a carriage being put down. On the top of the kitchen stairs there is a door always fastened every night by an iron bar, that prevented their getting up stairs. With regard to the property being stolen, I have seen some of it since.</p>

<p>Q. On the 6th of February what time did you go to bed - A.About half past ten or eleven; before I went to bed I fastened the outer doors, and the door in the passage.</p>
<p>Q. With respect to the lower windows of the house, did you look at them - A.The shutter on the inside of this window was not fast, owing to the iron bar being lost; I cannot say whether the window was bolted down or not; I saw all the cross bars safe in the course of the day, and all the lower windows in the rest of the house were fastened.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the door of the yard was fastened when you went to bed - A. Yes; I looked at it the last thing.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you get up in the morning - A.About seven o'clock; Mary Hatfield, the house maid, was up first.</p>
<p>Q. You got up at seven, it was light then - A. No; it was getting light; I was just coming down, the house maid came up to me and said there had been thieves in the house. When I went down stairs I

I saw the middle bar of the laundry window wrenched off; it was left hanging at one end.</p>

On the night of the 18th of November, a little after twelve, I went about Mr. How's grounds, to see if there were any poachers. I found a net at a gate on the Wednesday night before; I saw Wicks on the Saturday night, the night in question; I saw Wicks on the 18th in Mr. How's park; Lee was in company with me; I had left him at a certain place while I went to the gate; I had a dog with me. I saw Wicks get up out of a bush, and go towards the gate; it was a bright moon light night. I did not know Wicks then; I saw a man get over the gate; I ran up to the gate and holloed to him to stop. I called to my dog, hold him; my dog was a little way behind; he did not come up instantly. I ran after Wicks holloing to him to stop, or I would shoot him; he was running; he turned round instantly and fired at me; I instantly fired at him. We were about the distance of thirty yards; he stopped till I came up to him; then, and turned round the butt end of the gun to me. I asked him who he was; he would not speak. I told him I had another charge, having a double barrelled gun; my dog came up and seized him by the smock frock. I turned the butt end of my gun at him, to avoid discharging it at him; we fought some time with the guns; the dog kept hold of him all the time; and when he spoke, he said, pray do not take my life away. I never stuck him afterwards; I took the gun out of his hands and put it in the hedge; the dog still holding him, I collared him and got the dog off. Lee came up, I told him to take hold of the man; the prisoner said to Lee, you are a d - nd tight fellow, ant you.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw Wicks turn round for the purpose
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180912060006"/>of firing, were you near enough to see which way he pointed the gun - A. I did not know he had a gun at the time I saw him turn round and front me.</p>
<p>Q. Are you able to say whether Wicks knowed your voice - A. He knew me before, he had seen me often enough; he knew I was game keeper to Mr. How. I was in my shooting dress that night. This is the gun that Wicks had, it is cracked in the stock just by the lock; I thought it was broken by my fighting;. Wicks said it would kill at seventy yards it is longer in the barrel than most guns. I got the prisoner into Mr. How's out-house and searched him; I found powder and number one shot on him, and a knife.</p>
<p>Court. Young man you told us you did not know he had a gun in his hand, of course you could not see till he fired, were you sensible of any motion of any wind at the time the gun went off. - A. No; I thought I heard a shot in the hedge at the time when the gun went off, I could not take my oath of that.</p>
<p>Q. Was the dog up to you when the prisoner let his gun off. - A. No; the dog was between the gate and me, he had not passed me.</p>

I saw him in July, the time of our hay harvest, we was having a merry making, and Johnston was among them, Wicks and Johnston were talking about shooting, Wicks was boasting of shooting with Johnston for a guinea. I said to Wicks, mind what you are about or else Johnston will catch you.</p>
<p>Q. Did Johnston hear this. - A. No; Johnston was a little way behind, I was thinking that if Wicks went out a poaching, Johnston would catch him, he said, if I was in an hedge and I thought he saw me, I would be d - nd if I would not blow his brains out. I said to Johnston, when he and I went round the ground, mind what you are after, Wicks says he will blow your brains out.</p>

I did not know who they were, I tried to make my escape, to run away if I could, he holloed, hoy, stop, if you do not stop I will shoot you, I went to turn round to stop, my gun went off, I could not help it, I had been trying to shoot a rabbit; he set the dog on me, I held my gun up that he might not beat my brains out; the dog pulled me down. I got up, and the dog got me down again: he beat me so, I have no use of my arms, and one of my fingers is beaten all to pieces.</p>

When I got to the top story, I perceived the wet come through the ceiling: I went upon the roof, and found the lead was missing from the gutters of all the three houses, except a small piece that hung over to blind my sight: by seeing that, I should have
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180912060007"/>concluded the lead was all safe; the piece that was left was about three feet long at the end. I went into one of the kitchens of the unfinished houses, and saw some lead standing up by the kitchen wall, concealed; some boards were placed round it. I went to Mr. Armstrong and the other officers to come and watch with me. About half seven I saw a man come on the terrace: he jumped from there into the house where I saw the lead. In two or three minutes he returned with something under his arm like a bundle: he went off with the bundle. Mr. Armstrong went into the houses, and said one of the pieces of lead were gone. In about a quarter of an hour, the same man returned again: I am certain it was the same man by his walk and by his coat: I saw him jump down the same place again; the officers had placed themselves in the kitchen during the time he was gone; I took a lanthorn, and went into the empty house, and saw the prisoner in the custody of the officers: he had moved the lead three feet from where I had seen it on the same day; I am sure he is the man that was taken. I am quite clear of it. I was looking out of the one pair of stairs window when he first came; the lamp gave a light to the terrace.</p>
<p>Q. When you went in the kitchen, the prisoner had none of the lead about him then. - A. No, the prisoner was secured, and taken before a magistrate: on comparing the lead in the kitchen with that upon the house, they were the same in breadth and thickness; it made a complete join: I make no doubt but that it was the lead that came off my houses.</p>

On the night of the 5th of November, Mr. Emmins applied to me: I went with Bishop and my son to some new houses of his in Hackkney Road. I had a candle and lanthorn, and saw the lead behind the boards in the kitchen: there were two pieces; one a very large roll, and the other a small one: the timber was put over them as before; then I and Bishop went to the adjoining house: after I had been there some time, I had occasion to go through that very house where the lead was, I found one piece gone from the kitchen: then Bishop placed himself in the front kitchen, and I placed myself to command a view of the kitchen where the lead was left: in about twenty minutes I heard something; I looked and let it come into the second kitchen, where the lead was. I saw the figure of a man; I seized him, and never let him go, which was the prisoner at the bar. Bishop instantly came to me and the prosecutor; I sent him for a candle and lanthorn; I never quitted the prisoner till he got a candle and landthorn, and then the prosecutor measured the wall where the lead lodged against, from where it laid flat on the ground.</p>
<p>Q. What distance was that. - A. Two or three feet: he took particular notice; I requested him, he being a builder.</p>
<p>Q. When you last left it, and put the timber before it, it stood against the wall - A. Yes, and when I took the prisoner, it laid flat on the ground. I found this basket and a bit of a blanket at the side of the foredoor, which was not there when we went in the first time. This large piece of lead I locked up in the cupboard on the Monday; it was compared with the piece that the prosecutor produced; it matched.</p>

<p>DANIEL BISHOP. I was present with Armstrong; I was placed in the front kitchen, and Armstrong in the back. The prisoner passed me about three yards: when I came up to him, Armstrong had hold of him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you notice the different situation of the lead when you left it to where it was when you apprehended the prisoner. - A. Yes; Armstrong has given a right account of it; I saw the two pieces of lead fitted; they corresponded.</p>

Yes, perfectly well; I knew all was in my purse: on Tuesday night I had reckoned what money I had in my purse, and I had not any occasion to take any money out of my purse.

On Monday the 30th of October, I missed a plank, I saw it concealed in a ditch. I watched on Monday night, he did not come then. On the Tuesday I concealed myself; I saw the prisoner come from the ditch with the plank on his shoulder; it was then about half past nine o'clock; he came up to me and said holloa. I never answered him; I walked towards Twickenham; he threw the plank off his shoulder, and followed me. The prisoner said who are you; he came and looked in my face. I turned round and would not let him see my face, because he would know me. He said d - mn your eyes I will see who you are; he followed me towards Mr. Gosling's. Then I set off upon a run. I was going to jump over a wall; he then holloed out, stop him, here is a man going to jump over the wall. I concealed myself; it was very foggy. He missed me and went towards Mr. Goslings, then he turned back, and went towards where the plank was. I took off my great coat; I went round by the water side, and met him again by the stile, about an hundred yards from where he had got the plank; I jumped over the stile and let him pass with the same plank on his shoulder. I pulled off my shoes and followed him; he went home, plank and all; I saw him house himself and the plank. On the next day I got a warrant, and went to his house with a constable; we searched the house, we could not find any thing but a small piece; we received information that there was a trap door; we went in again and took up a piece of sacking before the fire, and found half the plank there. There were some more pieces that he had cut from the same plank; he was building a cart.</p>

On the 21st of November, about five o'clock in the evening, the prisoner came into my shop to look at some stockings; I shewed her some; she said she had not money enough for them, she would go and ask her husband for more money. She came back again, and asked to see some prints. I shewed her some but they would not suit her. After she was gone, I missed a piece of callimanco. I had nobody but myself in the shop at the time; I could not follow her.</p>
<p>Q. Am I to understand you that during the time she was there, there was no other person in the shop but you. - A. There was no other person in the shop but me at that time. She came again on the Thursday, to look at some muslin's for her husbands handkerchiefs; I shewed her eleven pieces, the prices would not suit her. She asked to see some gloves; I shewed her some, she bought one pair; while I was looking for the gloves, she rolled a piece of muslin up in her bundle.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see her - A. No, I did not, when I had shewn her the gloves, I counted over the muslins, instead of being eleven pieces there was only ten, I missed one; she kept the pair of gloves and paid for them. She went away, delivering the muslin to me before she went; I followed part of the way home. She hid herself in some stable in Bankside. Soon after, she started; I followed her to the constable's house, and gave charge of her to the constable. He went with me to search her lodgings, where we found three duplicates of some stuff that was pawned on the 22d of last month. I went with the constable afterwards, to see the stuff and the calimanco at the pawnbrokers; it was exactly the colour and pattern of that which I lost.</p>

On the morning of the 23d of November, between eight and nine o'clock, Mr. Powis brought the prisoner to my door and gave her in charge to me, for stealing a piece of calimanco and other articles.

She said she had three children at home; I went home with her to see about the children: Mr. Powis accompanied me to her house where she lived. I then asked her for her duplicates; she then refused giving me her duplicates, but she opened her drawer, and I was going to look in it, she took out a roll of paper, which she was going to throw in the fire; I catched her hand and took from her a duplicate of a piece of calimanco stuff, pledged at Mr. Wrights for 2 s. 6 d.

<p>Q. to Mr. Powis. I understood you only found two pieces, do they form the twenty eight yards - A.It was taken in one piece and cut into four.</p>

<p>Q. Do you mean they persuaded you to go up stairs. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What do you talk about making you? you do not mean to say they forced you by manual force and violence. - A. No; as soon as I got up stairs, they asked me if I would treat them; I was going to treat them; I could not get the money out soon before that lady put her hand into my bosom, and robbed me of a handkerchief-pin, a handkerchief, and some silver: they called out to Mr. M'Carty, a publican, to bring up three half quarterns of rum, and change for a pound note. When M'Carty came up, he said here is the change for the pound note. I immediately refused to give the pound note: I was going down stairs; they snatched my hat off; and away I went down with the landlord to his own house without a hat. When I came into M'Carty's house, I set myself in the bar: I called for six pennyworth of rum and water: the prisoners came in, and gave me the hat. I then said to the prisoners, you have robbed me of a handkerchief-pin: if you will give it back again, I will spend five shillings; the handkerchief-pin was worth 2 l. or 3 l. I pulled out a handful of bank-notes, to the amount of 80 l. or 90 l.</p>
<p>Q. Do you walk about with that money in your pocket. - A. I was going to pay my distiller: when I took this money out of my pocket, a 10 l. note was the first of the bundle. I was going to give it to the landlord to treat them, to get my pin back again. One of the prisoners snatched it clean out of my hand, and gave it to the other: the landlord told Sullivan to give me the note back again: she abused me in all languages.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean by all languages. - A. Bad language.</p>
<p>Q. Were you sober. - A. I was perfectly sober. The landlord sent for the watchman, and one of them got away. Some man knocked me in the mud; I lost my hat: Sullivan was taken to the watch-house, and searched; nothing was found on her. Fitzhenry was brought in afterwards, and searched the note was never found.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. - You are a publican: where do you live. - A. In Long-alley, Moorfields; I am a married man; I have five children.</p>
<p>Q. What time in the evening. - A. I believe it was between seven and eight in the evening; I know it was on the 13th; I put it down when I went home in the evening; I know I was robbed.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you put it down. - A. I put it down in my head to keep it.</p>
<p>Q. You did not put down the day of the week; did you, is that so. - A. I know it was on the 13th. I cannot say any thing what day of the week it was.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you been in the public line. - A. A. About fourteen months.</p>
<p>Q. What had you been before - A. I do not know what I had been before; I came here for justice.</p>
<p>Q. You will not give me any other account. - A. No.</p>
<p>Court. This gentleman is trying you, to know whether what you say is true, therefore answer, or else the jury will say, very likely, you deserve no credit.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. Inform these gentlemen what you were, before these fourteen months. - A. A dealer in cloaths. I have been in Holland, I bought old cloaths and took them there to sell them. It is now about four years ago since I returned from Holland, and since then, I bought old silver, clothes, or any thing of that kind.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your solemn oath, were you never in a court of justice before this day - A. I came here to have justice for what I lost.</p>

On the stairs Fitzhenry put her hand over my shoulder and took off his hat. I said it is better to lose your hat than your money. He came to my house and sat inside my bar, and called for sixpenny worth of brandy and water; I made it him; we both drank it. When both the prisoners came in with the hat, they handed it to him. He told me he was robbed of a handkerchief pin, and a silk handkerchief. He offered to spend five shillings to get the handkerchief back again; he took out a handful of notes, out of them he took a ten pound note and held it open in his hand; here landlord, he said, let them have five shillings-worth out of this.</p>

I said it is of no use, I cannot get the note from them. I shut the door and sent for the watchman, and gave them in charge.</p>

<p>Q. When you got up there, Barnett made a complaint to you, that they had stole his handkerchief pin - A. Not immediately, he did not; he did not say a word about it in their lodging, he did mention it when I was going to leave the room.</p>
<p>Q. How came it when the hat was taken off his head, that you, and he, did not return and take it from them - A. Why, what was I to trouble my head about another man's affairs.</p>
<p>Court. What did you go over for - A. To serve the liquor. I thought it better for him to come away without his hat, than lose his money.</p>
<p>Q. Had you seen any of his money then - A. I had seen a lot of notes in his hand.</p>
<p>Q. Then before he came to your house he pulled out his money - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Were you in court when Barnett was examined - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did not you observe, that he did not say that he pulled out the notes in their room - A. I did not observe that in particular.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. I think you told my lord just now, that he was perfectly sober - A.No, I was not asked the question.</p>
<p>Q. Yes, you were, and you distinctly answered the question, that he was quite sober - A. He said, himself, that he was not quite sober, here now.</p>
<p>Court. He said he was quite sober, I asked particular, I did not think his behaviour was that of a sober man.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. Pray what time of night was it - A. It was between ten and eleven when I went to the watch-house. It was near ten when they came to my house.</p>
<p>The prisoners were not put on their defence.</p>

<p>Q. On the 8th of November you had the care of a box, had not you - A. Yes, I had, it belonged to a society of taylors that used the house.</p>
<p>Q. It contained the contributions of the society - I believe so, I know nothing of the contents of the box at all, it was left in my care.</p>
<p>Q. Who kept the keys of it - A. The stewards: there were three locks and keys.</p>
<p>Q. Who were the stewards - A. Douglas was one, the name of the other I do not know. I had the charge of the box during the time of their sitting, it was in the club room, and sometimes I took it in my sleeping-room. On the 8th of November it was in the club room.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose the club room was not locked, was it - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. What time of the day did you see the box last - A. About one at night. They were obliged to make their monthly payments. The stewards did not leave the room till one at night.</p>
<p>Q. You saw it after the club had left your house, did you - A. I did, they called me up in the room.</p>
<p>Q. When did you miss the box - A. The same morning about seven o'clock, my wife missed the box and the servant; she apprized me of it; I came down stairs and found the box missing, and the prisoner at the bar also.</p>
<p>Q. How long had she lived with you - A. About ten or eleven days.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know what time she left your house - A. I cannot say, she went into the room about one o'clock; I saw her after the club was gone.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see the box and the girl again - A. On Friday last about nine o'clock in the evening, there was a person, that knew that she committed this robbery, saw her in Rose street, Long-acre, at a door way, sitting there; he came and informed me, I went to Rose-street and saw her, she was sitting in a door way much intoxicated. I said, is this you Ann; she said, yes master. I gave her in charge to a watchman, and took her to the watchhouse; when she was in the watchhouse, she told me that the box was at a shoe-blacks place, in a court in Shire-lane; I went there, and one of the officers of Bow-street went with me, and found the box according to her direction; the box was forced open, there were the books in number, but the cash was gone.</p>
<p>Prisoner. There was no such thing in it, as he said; I took this box, I do not deny; he told me if I would tell where the box was, he would forgive me. The cash in it was of little consequence.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I said the loss of the books to the society was the most consequence; I did not say I would forgive her.</p>

<p>Q. Was it dark or quite light. - A. It was rather dark, it was not quite light.</p>

I found a rag in her bosom, in that rag was a seven shilling piece, seven or eight shillings in silver, and in her right hand I found some half-pence, and three shillings in silver.

<p>Q. Had you your money loose in your pocket. - A. My money was wrapped up in a bit of linen in my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Before you saw the prisoner how much money had you. - A. I had sixteen half Joes, fourteen guineas, fifteen shillings, and a one pound bank note in my pocket book, that was all the money I had, and when the prisoner was gone, I had two half joes remaining. I lost all my money but two half Joes. The landlord went for a constable; I got some of my money again.</p>
<p>JOSEPH CHRISTOPHER. I am a publican.</p>
<p>Q. It was in your house where these people were drinking - A. Yes. On the 16th of November Westwell was in my house, in the evening. I remember seeing the prisoner, he was sitting near Westwell. The prosecutor told me he treated the prisoner with three half quarterns of gin. He told me he was robbed.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner by at that time - A. He was in the house, but not by at the time. I wrote a note, and gave it to the prosecutor to go to Lambeth-street office and bring an officer with him. When he came back he told me he could not find the office, and he had lost the note; he was a good deal in liquor. I then sent for a constable, and described the person of the prisoner to him, the prisoner was then gone. The constable returned and told me he could not find him. My wife came in about a quarter of an hour after the constable was gone. I left my wife in the bar, and went with the constable to the Bee-hive public house, and found him.</p>
<p>Q. How long might this be after the prosecutor had told you that that the prisoner had robbed him - A. An hour and a half. We found him there in company with another man. We took them in custody, and searched them at the watch-house. On the prisoner we found in his jacket one half joe; it is the value of 1 l. 16 s. We continued searching him; he said, so help his God he had no more. I observed his shoe being off (he had only one shoe, he is a cripple). I was going to take his shoe up, the prisoner picked up his shoe himself, he turned the shoe topsy turvy; I laid hold of his hand, as also did the constable, and found twelve half joes in his hand that had held the shoe. The watch-house keeper took his protection box out of his pocket, and found a one pound bank note and a sixpence was found on him.</p>

The watch-house keeper found a one pound note in his protection box; afterwards we found a six-pence. The other man was locked up, he had three hearings, he had this man's watch, we found nothing else on him.</p>
<p>THOMAS WEBB. Q. You keep the watch-house, do you - A. Yes; I was present on this search. I found the protection box on the place where we take the charges. It was put there by Mr. Cooper or the other man when they took the money from the prisoner. I found a one pound note in the protection box. The box was not on the table before they came in.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. It was my own property. I went into this public house, this man came and knocked up against my foot, I pushed him off, and he struck me; then four Portuguese struck him; after that he came to me, he said I know I am in the wrong; Westwell put his hand in his pocket and gave me some money. I never looked at it, but put it in my pocket.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I never gave him any money.</p>
<p>Q. Is that the man that you laid hold of when you awoke - A. Yes, and the rest of people pushed me about; they said I should not impose upon a cripple.</p>

I went after Fox, she was about twenty yards before the others. Underneath her apron I perceived something white. I asked her what she had got, she said nothing. I put my hand under her apron, and pulled out a piece of muslin. She told me two girls gave it her. I took her to Mr. James. I asked her where she had been to, she said that she had been to her brother in Purple-street, near Gray's-inn-lane, and she came up Chancery-lane to go to West Smithfield, and in passing by our house somebody gave her the muslin.</p>

On the 17th of November, about eight o'clock in the evening, the prisoner was going home; I had long suspected him, and I had called on Mr. Davis the constable to be in readiness; when I went in he said as usual good night; I replied good night, Benjamin; he advanced two or three paces, I called him back, I told him I had reason to believe, and I could prove it by my own servant, that he had long been a rascal to me. I asked him if he had any property in the bank, if he had any property out at interest, and if he had any property at home, to all which questions he positively denied having any; Mr. Davis came in, and I desired the prisoner to turn out his pockets; he turned them out, and there were a great many more halfpence than it was necessary for him to have in his pocket; I asked him whose property the halfpence were, he said mine, meaning his own; Mr. Davis then put his hand down his side, he rather resented; he had concealed in his breeches a cake of soap, it was divided in two; halves were on each side; I asked him whose property that was; for the soap, when joined, was the same as a banker's check; he said his apron was dirty, he took a little bit to wash it.</p>
<p>Q. How much was the weight of the soap - A. They are generally on an average about three pound; I identified some of the halfpence; there was a sixpence in his shoe.</p>
<p>Q. What quantity of halfpence was found upon him - A. I did not count them; there were two or three that I knew. I then desired him to give me his keys, he did, and every one of these keys have separate locks at his habitation, and all his drawers were lined with clothes, rings, broaches and silk stockings, and a variety of other things; he had six gallons of gin in his cellar, four gallons of rum, preserved damsens, and exclusive of that, in one of his iniquitous nests I found forty guineas, beside half crown pieces, and all from poverty and woe; when I took him he had scarce a shirt or a shoe; and it is an iniquitous thing that a retail tradesman should be plundered by such a rascal.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. How long had this man been with you - A. Near twenty years.</p>
<p>Q. These rings, and all these quantity of things, were your's - A. If you took a man from an indigent state, and had placed him behind your counter, you would have thought so. He was a labourer in the India house; I only had him late of an evening.</p>
<p>Q. Do not you know that he had a legacy left him of a considerable sum of money - A. I do not believe it. He told me he found some money in the tea pot, but that was a deception. He is a rascal; it is a duty that I owe to society to bring him before this court; as to the rigour of the law, I do not wish to go to the extent of it.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not got possession of a considerable property of this man, of which you made no claim - A. Yes; here it is in my hand: forty guineas, four score half guineas; his sister desired me to take the four watches.</p>
<p>Q. You have not been able to trace where he sold these things of yours to raise that money - A. He is too sly for that.</p>
<p>Q.Did not you refuse to let this man have a guinea to defend himself - A. I said I would bring it before the court, and to them I would humbly submit.</p>
<p>Q. On the day he was searched you only found two or three halfpence - A.What he took that night was very little short of four shillings.</p>
<p>MR. DAVIS. Q You were sent for to search this man - A.Yes, I asked the prisoner if he had any of his master's property about him; he said he had not; I told him I must search him; I put my hand in between the lining and the upper part of his breeches, and took out these two bits of soap, making one cake, broken in two; I asked him whose property that was; he said his master's. I put my hand towards his waistcoat pocket, he emptied it into my hands; the halfpence, I examined them, and found two marked halfpence as described by Mr. Everatt; I found in a pocket half a guinea, and sixpence in his shoe.</p>
<p>The prisoner left his defence to his counsel, and called five witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Where were you on the 27th of November last - A. I left my place on the Monday, I do not know what day of the month it was; I left my place between four and five, I took my lodgings that very evening in Maid lane in the Borough; I had lived at the City coffee house, Mr. Readers, a twelve month.</p>
<p>Q. When you left Mr. Readers, you received your wages - A. Yes; I received seven pound eleven shillings and two-pence; I went to the doctor's to pay my bill, in Queen-street, between six and seven; I went to pay the chandler shop woman and the washer, woman what I owed; we got talking, it was near ten o'clock when I came away. They told me at my lodgings if I was not home at ten o'clock I could not be let in; I intended to go to Long Acre to Mrs. Haggerston's, the George, to try to get a bed; on my going there, on the other side of Temple bar, I met with the prisoner, she was going as if to Covent Garden; I said to her, young woman, will you be so good as to tell me of a lodging. I dare say when I met her it was half after eleven o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Where had you been from ten o'clock at the time you left your washerwoman till half after eleven o'clock - A. I had been no where, but kept straight on from Little St. Thomas the Apostle, where my washerwoman lived. I told the prisoner I would give her any thing if she would take me to a good house, as I was a stranger; she took me up a court, and when I came up to a public house she asked me to give her something to drink; I gave her a glass of rum, and after that she said she was damnably hungry; I said I was going to have a pint of porter and some bread and cheese, she was welcome to have part; she did take part of it; after that she took me to Ship-yard, to the Old Rose hotel; I asked the landlady if I could have a bed; she said yes, and took me up stairs to see the room; the prisoner said she would go up with me, she would be a protection for me; the landlady took me into the room; I asked her what it was for the bed, she replied three shillings; I gave her a dollar and she gave me two shillings; the prisoner said she would stop with me if it was agreeable, she was destitute of a bed; I said to her, as you are a servant like myself I have no objection, if you are quite clean you shall sleep with me; she said she was quite clean. I gave consent for her to sleep with me. In the course of conversation, as we were sitting down, I said I do not think you are a servant; she said, what do you think I am; I said I did not know; then she told me that she was an unfortunate woman; I said cannot you reform and become a servant, it is better than going in the streets; she replied, thank God, I have found a friend at last, and she burst out a crying. I set for some time, and then said, there is more joy over one sinner that repenteth than over ninety nine just persons; I told her I was no scholar, I had heard so. Before I went to bed I counted my money, I had a two pound bank note, and two shillings in silver, and six pennyworth of halfpence, a pocket handkerchief, a snuff box, and two bills that I had been and paid; I put it into my pocket; the prisoner was present; she saw my note on the table, and the two shillings in my hands; in about two minutes afterward she said, my dear, you seem fatigued, you had better go to bed; I undressed myself and went to bed; I left my pockets all of a lump with my clothes on the chair by the side of the bed. I said, before I got into bed, which side will you sleep on; she said, you sleep on the further side, next the wall.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose that was on the other side to where the chair was - A. Yes. We had a candle on the hob in the fire place, close to the chair; I went into bed; I sat up on the bed; she was sitting in the room; I heard the pockets chink.</p>
<p>Q. Where the curtains drawn - A. Yes, almost close together. When I heard the pocket chink I put the curtains of oneside, I saw her hand in my pocket; I saw the prisoner take the note out in her hand; I said you have robbed me, you have got the note out of my pocket; I told her if she would give me the note I would make no disturbance in the house; she said, blast you, search me; she took her cap and shook her hair about; I said I did not understand searching her; I said do not think that I am afraid of you, for I will go down to the landlady directly; I run down with my garment on and fetched her up stairs; I told her the woman up stairs had robbed me.</p>
<p>Q. Is the landlady here - A. No. They said at Bow-street they did not want any body. The landlady told Collins she had got my money; she denied it; she told them to search her; the landlady searched the bed and every where and could not find it.</p>
<p>Q. Did the landlady search her person - A. She did not, and I was afraid to touch her for fear she should give me a thumping; I said I would have the watchman in if she did not give me the note; the watchman came up stairs, he said now my good woman, give this girl her note; Collins said to the watchman, search me.</p>
<p>Q. Did the watchman search her - A. He did not; I told him to search her, the landlady said I had not the modesty of a woman; to tell him to search her; I told the watchman to keep her safe till I got my clothes on, I would follow him, and at the watchhouse I told them to take charge of her; they wanted to turn her out and me; I told her if they did turn her out it should be the worse for them; they then took her into a back room and told me they searched her, they could not find any thing upon her. I did not see her searched, I went back to the room and searched, and found nothing there. I took the prisoner before the magistrate the next day, and told him the same thing that I do now. At the office she said she would give me a pound note, and make up the rest when she could, if I would not prosecute her.</p>
<p>Q.Young woman, you said you left Mr. Reader, whom you had lived with a twelvemonth - A. Yes; I was a house maid; my mistress died while I was there.</p>
<p>Q. Now you say you had been to the washerwoman and to the chandler's shop had you drank any thing with them - A. No; I had not tasted any thing but at my dinner at Mr. Reader's, except my tea, until I met with the prisoner.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. It was about half past eleven o'clock on Tuesday night when this woman overtook me between Temple bar and Chancery-lane, she tapped me on the shoulder, she said, it is a cold night, will you
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180912060019"/>have something to drink, I feel for your situation; I said thanky, ma'am; she said, can you inform me where I can get a lodging; I said I cannot get you a place but at a house that receives company; she said she did not mind what place it was, if she could get clean sheets; she said would not I have some refreshment first; she took me up a place to a public house, I said I would have a glass of gin; she said no, I should have a glass of rum; she heard a parcel of men singing in the tap-room, she said that it was a long while ago that she heard singing; she had a pot of beer warmed it, and put some ginger in it; I drank none of it. She asked me if I could smoke, I said no; we left there; she paid for the liquor and the bread and cheese. We went to the Old Rose; when we got up, stairs she told me she would get me a character if I would reform; I said I must go, she told me it was rather late then, it was near one o'clock in the morning, there was nobody about; I should get no good; it was rather cold, I got into bed, then she asked for her pockets. I gave them to her, then she said I had robbed her of a two pound note; I said, you are wellcome to search me; she went to the door and called the landlady up, she and the landlady searched me, then she sent for the watchman. I was sent to Clare-market-watchhouse and searched; they were going to turn me out, they saw she was intoxicated. She swore that she saw me take it out of her pocket.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutrix. She says that you drank this pot of beer - A It was only a pint; I had no ginger in it; it was only warmed by the fire; and fourpenny worth of bread and cheese.</p>
<p>Q.She says that when the landlady came up she and you searched her - A. She never was searched, her stockings were never taken off.</p>
<p>Q.Who keeps the Rose tavern - A. I do not know; I never was there before.</p>

On the 16th of November about eight o'clock in the evening, I was sitting in the accompting house, there is a window between the accompting house and the shop; on my looking through the window I saw the prisoner, he was laying flat on the counter in the shop with his face close to the till; I had but a transient sight of him, but he appeared to be busily employed.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe the position of his hands - A. No; I could not.</p>
<p>Q. Was the door of the shop open or shut - A. I am not sure whether it was fastened or put to; I went into the shop and saw it was not fastened, only put to; I fastened the shop door inside, to prevent the prisoner going out, I called my niece and sent up for my brother, before my brother came down the prisoner went up to the corner of the shop where the witness will prove that three one pound notes were afterwards found; I went up to the till and looked in, there were in it ten or eleven shillings, and some halfpence; in the afternoon I put two one pound bank notes in it.</p>
<p>Q. How long before you saw the prisoner there - A. It might be two or three hours before; and some small gold, some seven shilling pieces, I cannot say how many; I believe more than one seven shilling piece, and I put one half guinea in, and some silver.</p>
<p>Q. Had you taken this money in the course of business - A. Yes; in the afternoon; I had taken the money of different customers; no other person had served behind the counter during the afternoon; when I first ran in the shop and got between him and the shop door; I asked the prisoner what business he had there; he replied by asking what he had done, he said he had nothing about him, and then I instantly fastened the shop door. When my brother came down he laid hold of the prisoner and sent me to fetch Mr. Midlam, our next door neighbour; Mr. Midlam went in, he, my brother, and myself took the prisoner into a back parlour; when there my brother took a few shillings out of the prisoner's waistcoat pocket; Mr. Midlam told the prisoner to pull off his shoes, which he refused to do, I stooped down and endeavoured to pull one of his shoes off, I could not; Mr. Midlam laid hold of his leg and forced one of his shoes off, and in that shoe there were two seven shilling pieces. My brother then told me to fetch a constable; the prisoner then said, for God's sake do not; my brother insisted upon knowing where the prisoner had put the rest of the money, and the prisoner repeatedly begged of him to forgive him. I went for the constable, and when the constable came he searched the prisoner in the parlour, he found nothing more on him.</p>
<p>Q. You did not see any notes found - A. No; when the notes were found the prisoner said he did not know any thing of the notes.</p>
<p>Prisoner. The lady swore, at Marlborough-street that she knew nothing about the seven shilling pieces.</p>
<p>Witness. I told the justice that I could not be so certain that they were in the till at the time. Upon the prisoner was found two seven shilling pieces, he said they were his own; that made some impression on my mind, and it induced me to doubt whether I had not given them away in change for the identical notes which I had put into the till, but not the half guinea; I put a half guinea in the till, there was no half guinea found on the prisoner.</p>

About three o'clock I had occasion to look in the counter till, I saw there a one pound note. In the course of the afternoon I went up stairs and left my sister to serve in the shop.</p>
<p>Q Did you observe what gold there was - A. No; I only recollect the pound note being indisposed; I went up stairs, I remained there till about eight o'clock in the evening, when I was called down; and when I came in the shop I saw the prisoner standing in the shop near the door; my sister informed me that she had detained the prisoner for stealing the money out of the till; I sent for Mr. Midlam when he came we took the prisoner into the back parlour, he was searched, Mr. Midlam took off one of his shoes, and there two seven shilling pieces in it; I then asked the prisoner what he had done with the rest of the money, at first he denied any knowledge of of it, but upon repeating the question, and ordering the constable to be sent for, he said, will you let me go if I tell you; to that I made no reply, but again insisted upon knowing where the rest of the money was; he then said, if you will let me go I will shew you where it is; I then said, I suppose you have given it to some of your accomplices at the door, or words to that effect, the prisoner answered, no, it is in the shop. I then went with Mr. Midlam into the shop, taking the prisoner to shew us. When we got half way along the shop the prisoner turned round to me and rather stopped me, and said, you have children of your own, pray forgive me, and I will never do so again; immediately after this I saw Mr. Midlam go into the corner of the shop, there he stooped down; it was the right corner as we came from the shop door.</p>
<p>Q. to Mrs. Salmon. You have heard your brother describe this place to which Mr. Midlam went up, was that the corner where you saw the prisoner go when you came in the shop - A. Yes, that was the very corner.</p>
<p>Q. Did either your brother or Mr. Midlam point out the corner where they found the note - A.Yes; they both pointed out the corner, and I am sure that is the place to which the prisoner went up.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Salmon. You say he turned a little to the right - A. Yes; Mr. Midlam stooped down then and took up a note from off the floor.</p>
<p>Q. It was laying unconcealed then, was it - A. Yes. He then turned his hand to a tea chest that stood on the same spot, in the corner, or near the corner, and between the tea chest and the wall; he took up two other notes wrapped up together; I did not examine them; they appeared to be bank notes as he had them in his hand.</p>
<p>MR. MIDLAM. Q. You have been in court while Mr. Salmon has been examined - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. His account is correct - A. Yes. I kept the notes myself and the two seven shilling pieces till the constable came, and then I gave them to him. They were three one pound notes; I do not recollect the numbers.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. I went into the shop in order to buy some sugar for an aged mother, for whom I am her chief support, no person being in the shop I leaned against the counter to rest myself until they came; when the prosecutrix rushed from the parlour, bolted the door, and accused me of robbing the till. I was taken into the back room and searched, nothing was found on me but money that was my own.</p>

<p>Q. Do you keep this house - A. No, It is Neale and Cadwallader's house. This warehouse which I have is seperate from theirs; they are shut out from me entirely, and I have a door into the street. All I know is, the prisoner was brought back in the custody of two officers, and the five pieces of callico also.</p>
<p>WILLIAM TRANGE. I am clerk to Mr. Moore. On Monday, the 4th of December, about half past nine in the morning, I was in the accompting-house, I saw the prisoner come in and take from the counter a quantity of prints, he ran out with them; I followed him as soon as I was able; I saw him about half a dozen yards from the door with the prints under his arm; I pursued him down Ironmonger lane with the cry of stop thief; about half way down Ironmonger-lane I saw two men coming up which I believe to be constables: when he saw them he directed his course into a church-yard leading into the Old Jewry; I and the constables pursued him into the Old Jewry, there he stopped and was taken; I believe I was the first that collared him; I never lost sight of him from the first time I saw him with the goods under his arm, untill he was taken. When I collared him he asked me what I wanted; I told him I wanted him.</p>
<p>Q.What became of the prints - A. I saw him drop them; a servant of Mr. Boydell was sweeping the door, he saw me pursuing the prisoner, and saw him drop the prints, and remained with them untill we returned and the man with us.</p>

<p>JOHN BROWN. About half past nine on Monday morning I was going down Ironmonger-lane; I heard the cry of stop thief, the prisoner was coming towards me; he saw me, he turned round, ran through a church yard into the old jury; I caught him in the middle of the Old Jewry and took him back to the house.</p>

<p>Prosecutor. I have no doubt it is my sugar. When it was found I could have pointed out the spot from whence it was taken.</p>
<p>Q. Do you allow them to take this sugar for tea - A They are allowed to take it into their sitting room to sweeten their tea, but not in this quantity, not to secret it in the place where they keep their clothes.</p>

<p>Q. Did you lose any thing on the 26th of October - A. We lost some pieces of kerseymere and patent cord which was in the window, the prisoner was in the shop, she cried out thieves. I ran to the window, I saw the pieces falling out of the window; the shop door was locked. I could not find the key of the door. I screamed out thieves; the prisoner said it was of no use, they were gone; she did not seem affected by it. We took the prisoner before the Lord Mayor, he was pleased to release her; after that we thought proper to to search her box, and there we found a few very trifling things indeed.</p>
<p>- PUGH. The servants box was brought down stairs; Mrs. Pickard picked out these things; the prisoner acknowledged this piece of silk was her mistress's; she said she had never done the like before she knew nothing of the kerseymere.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My box laid in the landing place; my mistress went often to my box; I was taken up and the gentleman acquitted me; as I was going out my mistress told me to call on the next day, she would pay me my wages. When I went she wanted to stop four shillings and six-pence. I asked her for what; she said, if I did not hold my tongue she would put me where I was before; I would not take less than my full wages. At the compter I sent to her for my money, I was almost lost for the want of it; I had nothing to support me.</p>
<p>The prisoner called two witnesses, who gave her a good character.</p>
