William Marvel and Elizabeth Tailor of Stepney , were Indicted for Felony and Burglary, in breaking the House of James Tailor on the 7th of June , and taking 5 flaxen Shirts, and other Goods belonging to Jacob de Lass . It appeared, that the Prosecutor's Window was opened, as was the House door, and a Trunk with the Goods taken out, part of which was found in the Prisoner's possession, who said they bought them from two Soldiers in Bunhill-fields; which they could not prove. The Evidence was very plain as to the Felony, but not as to the Burglary: They were brought in guilty of Felony only .
