Trolly Lolly , of the Parish of St. Mary Whitechappel , was indicted for breaking the House of Christopher Hurt , and stealing thence 1 Pair of Flaxen Sheets, value 10 s. and other Goods from the said Christopher Hurt, on the 22d of July last. The Prosecutor depos'd, That being in Bed he heard a Noise, and looking out of the Window, saw the Prisoner go out of his House with the Goods, upon which he ran out and took her. A Lodger swore, That being obliged to rise early on the Account of his Business that Morning, he lock'd the Door after him, and put the Key under it. The Prisoner in her Defence said she was going a Hay-making, and saw the Door wide open; which being a very poor one, she was found Guilty of Felony and Burglary .
