William Norman was indicted [Text unreadable in original.] the East-India House, and for Assaulting Samuel Quessenborow . It appeared that there was a great Insurrection of the Weavers, and they came to the East-India House and broke a Pannel of the Gate, and 4 or 5 of them got in, then they broke over the Portcullis's and got into the Court yard, intending to rifle the Treasury; but in the mean time notice was given to my Lord Mayor, and the Sheriffs, who presently came, and the Multitude was dispersed; Mr. Quessenborow then shut the Gate to, and stood with his back against it; and the Prisoner finding that he could not get out, he struck him several blows on the Arm with a great Stick; he still detainid him, till he got assistance and took him; there was other Evidence that did declare, That the Multitude said that the Company had not made a Dividend for some years, but they would make one now; and when that they had done there, they would go to the Bank; the matter was fully proved against him, the Jury found him guilty of the said Misdemeanor.
