Ann Allen, alias, Broken-back Nan , and Ruth Pattison , both of the Parish of St. Leonards Bromeley , in the County of Middlesex, were Indicted for Felony and Burglary, in breaking the House of John Coleman on the 12th of August , between the hours of 12 and 4 in the afternoon, and taking thence a pair of flaxen Sheets, and 8 Offinbridge Pillowbers, and divers other Goods . It appeared upon search, that there was found in Pattison's Room, some pieces of ragg'd Linnen, which the Prosecutor's Wife said was taken from her whilst she was gone a Hay-making; but Pattison said, that the Rags she found in the Street, and washed them on purpose to Sell. There was no Evidence against Allen, so they were both acquitted .
