<p>Q. In the month of November last, had you any horses grazing at Mr. Froggett's, near Hendon - A. Yes, I had twelve.</p>
<p>Q. On Wednesday, the 10th of November, did you see them all safe - A. It was on the Friday preceding the Wednesday, they were all safe then. I sent for them home on the 17th, only ten were brought home; two bay geldings were missing.</p>
<p>Q. What were the value of them - A. Seventy pounds both. On the 17th I learned two were missing; on the Tuesday following, I received some information from Cambridge of the two bay horses; on the Wednesday, I went to Cambridge; I found my horses; they were brought and delivered back to me.</p>
<p>Q. Were these two geldings that were delivered to you at Cambridge the two geldings you missed - A. They were.</p>

<p>Q. Were the horses all safe then - A. I did not tell them then. I told them on Monday; they were safe then.</p>
<p>Q. On Tuesday did any thing strike you as wrong - A. No. The gate was shut, a lashing stick was drawed through the staple, and nailed each side of the stick, the gate was fast; on Tuesday morning the horses appeared to be there; I did not count them. On Wednesday, first of all, I looked round the field to see whether the horses were there or not; the horses were all gone, and the gate was open.</p>
<p>Q. How did it appear to you that the gate had been opened - A. The gate could not have been opened without the stick had been broken out; the stick had been fastened with a nail each side. I went all round the field; I could not trace how they got out any where, but at the gateway; it being wet and dirty, there were the marks of their feet at the gateway. I found ten horses in the Edgware-road, in a field about half a mile off; the two geldings I could not find; they were two of the twelve.</p>
<p>WILLIAM NUNN. I am a horse-dealer; I reside at Cambridge.</p>
<p>Q. Were you at Cambridge fair on Saturday the 20th of November last - A. I was not at the fair, it was Cambridge market day; on the market day I saw

I exchanged a horse of mine for the bay gelding, and I gave a one-pound note, and a shilling to boot; my man took the gelding home.</p>
<p>Q. Did he afterwards propose to you to buy another horse - A. I told him I could not buy it; I had got another, I would exchange with him for it. We exchanged for that, and I gave him five golden guineas, and another horse in exchange for it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you examine these two bay geldings more particularly after you had exchanged - A. I did, after they were cleaned I found them much better horses than those I had exchanged them for; upon that I went in search of the prisoner; I found him at the White Horse, and the younger prisoner at the Bell.</p>
<p>Q. Which of them did you find first - A. The eldest. I found out the youngest at the Bell in Northampton-street; something a friend of mine said to me induced me to think there was another. When I saw the young one, I asked him whether he was waiting for a young man of the name of Loakes; he said he was. I then told him, I had exchanged some horses with him, and I thought they were stolen. The young one went with me to the White Horse, there we found the elder; I told the elder that I had strong suspicion the horses were stolen horses. He gave me the name of

He told me they were Lord St. John's horses; the other horse had a broken leg, and he was to be sold. Then I went with them both to the Mayor; they were both examined separately; they were detained, and the horses were detained.</p>
<p>Q. In consequence of what you learned, did you make any communication to Mr. Wilkinson - A. I did; he came down and swore to the horses; they were delivered to him as his property.</p>

<p>Q. By both, whom do you mean - A. Both the prisoners at the bar; they did not come in together directly, but afterwards one brought one, and the other the other; the young one brought the other, his name is I Robert Moore; they are brothers to the best of my knowledge. At about six o'clock in the afternoon they brought in the two geldings; I took one of them to be shod at Mr. Balam's, Cross-street,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181401120004"/>Islington; they were both shod on Wednesday morning, one by Balam, and the other by another person. The horses were taken away on Thursday afternoon, what time I cannot say; I was not at home. I did not see either of them after the Thursday.</p>
<p>Q. Have you since seen these two bay geldings - A. Yes, it was in the second week after they were taken away; I saw them in the custody of Mr. Wilkinson.</p>
<p>Mr. Wilkinson. The two geldings I shewed to the last witness were the two that Mr. Nunn bought of the prisoner.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. to Richards. You only took one to be shod - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw him on the over night in the stable it was dark - A. Yes.</p>

<p>Q. Was a bay gelding brought to you by the last witness, Richards - A. There was. I have since seen that bay gelding again, Mr. Wilkinson brought it to my shop; it is the one to the best of my knowledge; he had rather particular feet; I believe it to be the same horse, I cannot swear it to be the same. The horse was brought to me to be shod about the middle of November; Mr. Wilkinson brought it about a fortnight afterwards; I think it is the same horse; it is the same colour, and appeared to be the same horse.</p>

I went to the door; I saw the prisoner just going off the step of the door, with the hind quarter of mutton under his arm; I took it from him. I said, what a shame to rob a poor widow woman with four children. I delivered him to Oram, the patrol. I can swear to the mutton being Mrs. Matthews's property.

He called out two or three times at Mrs. Matthews's shop before any body answered; he asked if they had lost any mutton; this woman came to the step of the door, she said, she would look. She looked all round the place, and said, you had better take him in custody until Mrs. Matthews came home. I paid thirteen shillings for the quarter of mutton in Clare-market.</p>
<p>Q. to Mrs. Andrews. Had any body got hold of him when you went out - A. I do not know; there was a crowd collected. He then did not say he had bought it in Clare-market.</p>

I could get no redress at all; I came down stairs, and sat content until the watchman came; the watchman went in, took her, and out her in the watchhouse. The next morning I went upto the pawnbrokers and saw my watch.</p>
<p>JAMES - . I live with Mr. Watts, pawnbroker, East Smithfield. On the 30th of December, in the evening, the prisoner pawned this watch with me for twenty-eight shillings.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. That is my watch; I missed it out of my buffett.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Q. Did not you tell me to pawn the watch to get some money to pay the two carpenters that came into the room to mend your buffett -</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. No.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. She gave me the watch to pawn, and had three quarterns of rum for the two carpenters. I pawned the watch by her order.</p>

<p>Q. Had you any property in your house in December last - A. Yes, I had five one-pound notes in my chest; I had put them by to pay my rent. I saw them in my chest about a fortnight before I missed them. I locked them up in my chest, and kept the key in my pocket. I missed them on the 8th of December. I saw my chest was broken open. I asked my wife if she had broken it open; she denied it. The prisoner came in and said, your wife did not break it open. I asked the prisoner if she broke it open for her. My wife said, I left nobody else but you here on Friday when I went out. I then said to the prisoner, I will make you suffer for it. The prisoner called me up into her room, and acknowledged that she had changed one of the pound notes; in about an hour after she acknowledged that she had changed two of them. On the next morning I had her taken up to the magistrate. She acknowledged that she exchanged two one-pound notes. This is a chisel that I lent to the prisoner's husband; I never saw it after until I saw it in my chest. The prisoner borrowed it of my wife for her husband's use.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I changed a one-pound note for his wife to get some things out of pawn for her.</p>

<p>Q. What reason have you to charge the prisoner with taking it - A. On the 4th of December the prisoner went to the linen-drapers and changed a five-pound note, as the linen-draper told me, and on the same night she brought home a new pelisse from the tailor's at Tottenham; she told me that she brought it from town, she paid for it with a two-pound and a one-pound note; she said, it was not paid for, and on the 4th I saw her pay a two-pound note away; I cannot say it was mine, I rather think so; and she went to the linen-drapers on Sunday morning, and paid for some cloth. I have not found any of my money.</p>

Mr. Turnbridge went to the door, and asked if such a man lived there; they said he did, he was not within, and then I saw the prisoner coming along within four houses of his own door. I asked him if he lived at that door where the light was; he denied it. I took him to the door where the light was; the woman of the house said here is Mr. Shade. He took his key from his pocket, and unlocked his room door, which is the lower room. The officer searched the room, and found nothing. He made his escape while we were searching the room. I pursued him and brought him back; we then took him to the watchhouse.</p>

I asked the prisoner where he got the feather bed; he said it was a bed that his wife's father gave him seven years ago. He said he found the pot in a ditch.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I found the pot. My wife's father gave her the bed when he went in the workhouse. He has lost the use of his limbs; he cannot get across the place without being carried.</p>

In the course of half an hour after he replaced it the workmen were going to their tea; I heard a step up this landing; I was in the cellar. I came from there, and saw the prisoner walking from the passage into the yard. I saw he had something in his apron; I asked him what he had; he said, some linen.

On the 8th of November last, the prisoner came into my shop; he asked to look at a watch, stating that he had seen it in the front sash. I took it out; he said he must have a chain with it. It was a silver hunting watch, a gold chain, and he chosed three seals. I put them all together, set the watch right; we could not agree about the key; I gave him a gilt key to wind the watch until I got the gold key made. He said he had not the money for it in his pocket; he said if you will send it to No. 4, Southampton-row, I will send the money by the bearer.</p>
<p>Q. Did he give you any name - A. He did not. He was dressed in a middling way. I called my young man. The prisoner went out of the house. I said to my young man, John, follow the gentleman immediately, and remember you do not leave the goods without the money.</p>
<p>Q. Did you afterwards receive from your boy any note - A. I went to the house myself to No. 4, Southampton-row; I found a check upon the banker, I think Hammersley and Co. Pall Mall.</p>

<p>Q. Do you think it would have been at other parts of the body, but from its origin in the wound - A. I think not.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any erysipelas there before the wound - A. I rather think not. I think the wound was the acting cause of the erysipelas.</p>
<p>Q. When you saw the erysipelas in the wound, and saw it spreading over other parts of the body, did you, as a rational man, think it proceeded from the wound - A. Yes, I rather think it produced from the wound, but there are causes which it might produce besides wounds.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. She and I had been together a month or six weeks, or better. We had been drinking together several times; she was passionate and abusive; she abused me much that morning. The drink rather took effect of me. When she spilled my beer I went from her and touched another pint pot. I am very sorry I happened to do such a thing. I never intended to do any such thing.</p>

<p>Q. Who was up last on the 3rd of December - A. I was up last; about eleven I went to bed. I examined the house to see whether the doors and windows were fast; they were all fast.</p>
<p>Q. Who came down first in the morning - A. The prisoner; he lodged with me at that time; he went down to go to his master's work.</p>
<p>Q. Then he was in your house that night - A. Yes; he went to bed and came down first in the morning. On the 13th of November twelvemonth, his master came to me and engaged to rent a stable of me; he introduced four horses to his stable, and once or twice he changed his carter; at last the prisoner was his carter.</p>
<p>Q. He lodged in your house on the night in question - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. The doors and windows were all fastened - A. Yes. When he came down he knocked at my bedroom door, and asked me for the key of the stair-case door; I gave it him. In consequence of my having suspicion, and I had been frequently robbed since he had been in the house; I followed him down; when I came to the stair case door, the key that I had given to him to open the stair-case door he had kept to let himself into the larder, which larder is part of my dwelling-house, all under the same roof. I found in the larder he had helped himself to a slice of cheese, which he had cut off and laid on his smock frock, on the ground. The cheese weighed about eleven pounds, or better. He was in the act of turning to help himself to another piece; or something else. This was about five o'clock in the morning, three hours before day light nearly, within a few minutes. I then tried to lock him in the larder by way of security. I found the key in the door, and with my turning I could not make the key set upon the lock. I told him to go and do his horses, or what be pleased, he should not go out. I secured him in the yard.</p>
<p>Q. You found him in the larder, and you secured him at five o'clock in the morning - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What is the value of the cheese - A. I valued it at three pence.</p>
<p>Q. Was your larder locked the over night - A. I am positive of that myself, my wife locked it. At eight o'clock the prisoner made his escape out of the yard by getting over a coal shed. We then traced him to Putney Heath; we found him at a public-house.</p>
<p>The prisoner said nothing in his defence, nor called any witnesses to his character.</p>

<p>Q. When you went to the field, and had information of the sheep that was lost, did you see any part of it - A. In a few minutes after I went down two men brought the fore part of the sheep; they said they had detected the man, and had taken him to the watchhouse. I then knew the parts of the sheep to be mine, because it is a remarkable sheep.</p>
<p>COURT. You said the sheep was yours and Mansfield's - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How many were there in the whole - A. There were nineteen. I knew the sheep by the marks, and by the head. The patrol took that part of the sheep down to where the other part was; that part was compared with the other part, it appeared to be the same sheep; the parts corresponded; the hind quarters corresponded with the fore quarters left on the skin. He had cut the sheep in two, and skinned the hind quarters, and left the fore quarters on the skin. They were all joined so as to constitute the entire whole sheep.</p>

I and the constable of the night searched him; we found a knife upon him; his pockets were filled with horse hair and cow hair</p>

We made search there; we found the sheep wild there, in two meadows; there was one sheep running about; we went to one part of the field; we found a dissected skin and entrails put into the ditch, covered over with roots of grass. We took it with us to Mr. Hopkinson. When we found the skin we did not find the fore part of the mutton. This was the dissected skin, belonging to the hind part. We returned again to the field; in the centre of that field there had been a pond, under a knapsack laid the head, and a little distance from the head laid the bladder and gall, and a little distance was some blood, as if the sheep had been killed there. We went to another part of the field; we found the fore part of the sheep with the skin on. We then went to Mr. Hopkinson, and took the whole together. I put the parts together. I am a butcher.

<p>Q. Did you put the nails in the heels - A. No; I mended the shoes; I thought it was the marks of the prisoner's shoes. I went to Read, the officer; he and I went again to the footsteps, and afterwards we went to the prisoner's house. We came to the prisoner's house about two o'clock on the Sunday. When I came there I saw the prisoner; we said we came to search for some mutton that was there; he said he had no mutton in the house. We were going to search in the cellar; the wife said they had got no mutton but what they got from Dorley. Dorley, that is the name of a farm at some distance. We searched the cupboard, and found some mutton. The cupboard was in the back room, over the fire place. We searched the cupboard; we found part of a loin cut up into steaks. From that we searched in the cellar; we found two legs, two shoulders, and a loin. They were in separate pieces, suspended with a string to a beam. The necks and breasts were left on the skin.</p>
<p>COURT. Both breasts were remaining on the skin, were they - A. Yes.</p>
<p>COURT. Had the mutton the appearance as if cut up by a butcher - A. No, it is haggled; it had the appearance of having been cut up by some person not used to it.</p>
<p>Q. How many sheep had you in the field - A. Forty-two on Saturday night, and the next morning forty-one; we lost one sheep. The skin was found in the same field where the sheep were in. The prisoner lived about a mile from me, from Uxbridge.</p>
<p>Mr. Barry. There is a market there on Saturday - A. No, on Thursday.</p>
<p>Q. What is the prisoner - A. The prisoner is a labourer.</p>

We compared the shoulders; they seemed to fit very well according to the cutting them off; they were cut off very bad indeed, irregularly.</p>

<p>Mr. Alley. You compared the fore quarters with the parts on the skin - A. Yes, and they fitted; we could not compare the hind quarters, they were cut from the loin; we could not compare the loin, they were cut in steaks, all in pieces.</p>

<persName id="t18140112-33-person345">Jones</persName> I had suspicion there was mutton there; he told me there was none, I was welcome to search the house. I then asked him what place that was; he said it was the cellar. I said we will look in the cellar first; we opened the door to go down, Jones's wife hallooed out Jones, we have no mutton but what you got from Dorley; that is about three miles from the prisoner's house, a farm-house belonging to Mr. Hammond. I said, where was the mutton; he said, up stairs; that was after his wife said he had no mutton but what came from Dorley. I went up stairs, there were on two plates the fat caul and kidney fat of a sheep, and in another plate was part of a loin or loins, and two kidneys of a sheep.</p>
<p>Q. To the parts of the sheep in the field were both kidneys gone - A. Yes. I said, is this the mutton. I thought the prisoner was upon the move, then I secured the prisoner. In searching the further part of the cupboard I found the middle of the loin of mutton covered over with a cloth in the same cupboard. I went into the cellar, it was dark; I got a candle; I found two legs and two shoulders suspended with pitchnettle string. On searching the prisoner I found some Pitchnettle string, pitchnettle is what they tie sacks with. The mutton was very badly butchered indeed, nor was the sheep skinned as a butcher would skin it; it was very badly skinned indeed.</p>
<p>COURT. Was the meat fresh - A. It was very fresh.</p>
<p>Q. Could you judge how long it had been killed - A. I should have thought recently by the appearance of the mutton. I went then and saw the skin of the beast, and the young lamb that was cut out of the sheep, with Fowler, the shepherd; I put my hand to the dug of the yew the dug was full of milk, as it was so near lambing. I compared the parts with what we brought from the field about the middle of the loin where it comes off the neck, it exactly tallied in thickness. In my own opinion they were the same parts of the same sheep, only seperated with the knife. The fat on the skin matched with the part in the leg; in the corresponding part of the leg I found a deficiency in fat, they fitted. There was part of the udder of the yew left in the skin; the udders were taken from both legs.</p>
<p>Q. Do butchers commonly sell cauls - A. Not usually at one time, as we found; both kidneys had been taken from the sheep, and we found two kidneys.</p>
<p>The prisoner left his defence to his counsel.</p>

<p>Q. Is your shop the bottom of the house in which you live - A. Yes, and part of the house.</p>
<p>Q. On the night of the 9th of January, had you fastened the door of your shop - A. Yes; I came down about five o'clock and found the door fast. Between ten and eleven I went to bed, and about one o'clock I was disturbed by my brother-in-law calling me; I went to the window and asked what was the matter; he said Mr. Rouche come down immediately, the shop is broken open. I came down, and found the shop was broken open, and the prisoner in the watchman and patrol's custody.</p>
<p>Q. Have you seen the goods that were found in the basket - A. Yes; I took them to the watchhouse just as they are. The basket is mine; there was some old bits of leather in it. The basket was emptied out, and he had packed up these old boots and shoes from various places in the shop where they were hanging; some were hanging very high. He had packed up thirteen pair of shoes, two pair of boots, and two bottles of blacking.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was going home; I found this place open as I came by; I could not get in my lodgings, so I went in there.</p>

<p>Q. Was any body with you - A. No one. I saw the prisoner and another man; at first of their meeting me they asked me if I was homeward bound; I told them I was. They passed on before me, and took no further notice. They came to a small turning, I passed them there; they followed me back again. They went on my left, and crossed me on the right; they went before me again. I passed them the second time; the prisoner crossed and passed between me and the wall, and took my watch from me; they turned down a street, I saw them turn down, I cried out stop thief. Then in a short time the prisoner was brought forward; I knew him to be the person that took my watch; he was taken to the watchhouse.</p>
<p>Q. The watch was not found upon him, was it - A. No. I value the watch at one-pound.</p>
<p>MR. WHEATLEY. I am constable of St. George's in the East. The prosecutor came to me at the watchhouse, and desired me to take the prisoner. On the evening stated in the indictment, I heard the cry of stop thief; the prisoner was taken immediately. Upon the prosecutor seeing the prisoner, the prosecutor said the prisoner was the man that robbed him. The prosecutor was a little fresh; he seemed positive he was the man, and there is no doubt but he was the man; I had my doubt in consequence of the fog. I searched the prisoner; I did not find the watch. The watch was produced to me the next morning; I received the watch of Mrs. Jackson. This is the watch.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. This is my watch.</p>

<p>Q. Do you remember when the prisoner was confined there - A. Yes, it was a Tuesday evening. The next morning the prosecutor and I was at the watch-house at the time the prisoner was locked up.</p>
<p>Q. Was it in the presence of the prisoner - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. State what passed - A. Mr. Spencer asked the prisoner if he would return the property; the prisoner said he would return him the property if Mr. Spencer would not prosecute. I asked the prisoner if he had any body to go of his errand; I called

Then she returned again, and said the watch was detained for five shillings; he gave her some silver; she went out, and returned with the watch; she then delivered the watch to the prisoner. The prisoner delivered the watch to me; I kept the watch, sent for Mr. Wheatley; when Mr. Wheatley came I asked Mr. Spencer if that was his watch; he said yes. I delivered the watch to Mr. Wheatley.</p>
