John Hall , Philip Clarke and John Jones , of the Parish of St. Sepulchers , were Indicted for Felony and Burglary, for breaking the House of Jonathan Brittaile , on the 14th of December last, about 9 in the Night, and taking thence 54 Ells of Linnen Cloath, value 3 l. The Evidence deposed, that he had a Lodger that went out and left the Key under the Door, and that the Prisoners took the Key and went in, and took the Goods and went their ways; but Hall being taken and carried to the Counter, confest the Fact, saying that the rest of them were with him in the Robbery, and that they had given him but Half a Crown for his Share. Another Evidence deposed. That Clark likewise confest that he carried away the Goods: And another Evidence deposed, that Jones did own the Fact, and said, that they were sold to one Bess Knightly , but could not be had again, but said he was willing to pay his share in Money of what the Goods were worth. They all of them upon their Trial denied the Fact, saying they knew nothing of it, and denied that they ever confest any such thing: But that did not avail them, they being known to be Offenders, and could not call any to their Reputation, the Jury thereupon found them all three Guilty of the said Felony and Burglary.
