Elizabeth Brown , Wife of Joseph Brown , was Indicted for feloniously stealing from Mary Denton , on the 1st of December , one Dowlass Shirt value 2 s. 6 d. a Flaxen Apron, and some other Goods . She was also tried on another Indictment for feloniously stealing from Sir George Downing Baronet , one Flaxen Table-cloth value 5 s. on the 10th of June : The Evidence deposed, that the Prisoner came frequently to Sir George Downing's Brewhouse, where the Goods lay for Water, and the Goods were missing, and afterwards found in the Prisoner's House: but she having a Husband, and it not being positively proved that she stole the Goods, she was acquitted of both Indictments.
