B - G - , of the County of Denbigh Gentlewoman , Anne Richardson , and Jane Bromley of Westminster , were all Three Indicted; B - G - as Principle, and the two latter as Accessary; for the Murther of Mrs. B - G -s Female Infant , on the 4th of November last: The Evidence for the King Deposed, that the Child was found Dead, lying in a Vault, in some Old Ruined Houses, in Park-Street Westminster , being a most amazing Spectacle, having no Covering about it; and its Tongue forced out of the Mouth which was done by great Violence; it was further declared

by a person of Quality, with whom Mrs. B. had lived, that she complained of the Gripes, and took a Coach and went abroad, and after this it was proved by others, that she was Deliver'd at Richardson House, at Westminster, and that Richardson and Bromley carried the Child after it was Born, to the place above said, and that B. - owned it to be hers; but there was no Evidence, that could Charge her to have offered any Violence to the Child, and Richardson and Bromley came for her after she was Delivered, and found the Child Dead, But whether born alive or no, could not be found, and the Prisoner Mrs B - had made provision for her lying in; So in the End they were all Acquitted .
