WHereas in the Account of the Proceedings of the last Sessions, published the 15th day of April last, it was among other things Incerted, That the Right Honourable the Earl of Stamford was likewise discharged by His Majesties Gracious Pardon. Now these are to certifie the Reader, That the same was a mistake for that his Lordship came to the said Sessions upon no other account than to hear the Tryal of one Jacob Joyner, son of that Joyner that keeps the Bull-head Tavern at Chairing-Cross, and commonly called and known by the Name of Cobb Joyner, which said Joyner was by the Grand Jury of Westminster found Guilty of Robbing his Lordship of a Jewel worth about 7 or 800 l. and the Witnesses bound over to prosecute, which Witnesses attended for that purpose; but the Court (taking notice that the Felony being committed before the 20th of March last past, was Pardoned by His Majesties late Gracious and General Pardon) did thereupon discharge Joyner of that Felony by Vertue of the said Pardon, and dismiss'd the Witnesses from further Attendance on that Court; but Joyner is continued in Custody upon an Action of Trover brought for recovering the said Jewel, and another for Scandalum Magnatum, wherein the Damages are laid 10000 l.
