William Palmer , was Indicted for Perjury, in giving a false Information upon Oath before the Lord Chief Justice Holt against one David Davis , on the 29th of August last, wherein the said Palmer deposed upon Oath, that as he was coming from Newmarket to London, he was assaulted, in Epping Forest, on the 25th of July last, by 2 persons, one of which was David Davis, who took from him 5 Guineas in Money, a Drapdeberry Coat, and a Mourning Sword . The Evidence against the Prisoner was another Affidavit made before the Lord Chief Justice Holt, wherein the Prisoner deposed upon Oath, that David Davis did not commit that Robbery; but he was prevailed upon to inform against him by an old Woman living nigh Hide Park Corner, who promised him 10s reward for his service. The Prisoner could say little else for himself, than that he was in drink when he gave the second Information; but that not satisfying the Jury, they found him guilty of the Indictment.
