Timothy Penniston , of the Parish of St. Martins in the Fields , was indicted for Forging and Counterfeiting a Sixpenny Stamp, and did stamp several quantities of Paper, and uttered the same, knowing it to be false , on the 20th of June last. It appeared that he did drive the Trade for some time, and there was found in his Lodgings a Block fitting for such purposes, and under his Bed they found the Dye; there was one Evidence that did see him stamp 7 Quires at one time; he denied the Fact, and said that he knew nothing of the matter, and that the Block was none of his; but the Fact was fully proved against him; the Jury found him guilty .

[Death. See summary.]
