Robert Rose , was indicted for Stealing a Bridle, value 2 s. a Pannel Value 6 s. and a brown Gelding value 9 l. the Goods of Thomas Miller , September 14 .

Thomas Miller thus depos'd. I went to Waltham Fair, and put my Horse up at the Green Man at Waltham Abby , about 11 in the Morning, from whence he was lost before 3 in the Afternoon; but on the Friday following I found him again in Smithfield, where the Prisoner offered him to sale; when I ask'd him where he got the Horse him away for another Horse, with Waltham Abby.

Thomas Barns thus depos'd. I carried the Horse to Grass in the Field belonging to the Green Man without taking off the Bridle and Saddle, and when I came to look for him, he was gone, and an old scrubbed Horse with a Bridle and a Saddle left in his room, and I suppose that was what he mean by swapping.

Thomas Wyat thus depos'd. The Prisoner brought the Horse with the Bridle and saddle to my Stable for the Market, and would have had me to have sold him; but I refus'd, and advis'd him to do it himself. Guilty . Death .
