457. Hannah Parker , spinster , was indicted for stealing a flannel petticoat, value 2 s. and two linen aprons, value 2 s. the property of Mary Hall , spinster ; a linen shirt, value 6 s. the property of George Heathcock ; one linen shirt, value 3 s. and one neckcloth, value 6 d. the property of Thomas Lucas ; one linen shift value 3 s. the property of Hannah Burton , spinster ; a shift, the property of Elizabeth Deschier ; a shift, the property of Eleanor Lovell ; two linen handkerchiefs, the property of Elizabeth Lilley ; a pair of linen sleeves, the property of William Baylis ; a cheque apron, the property of Sarah Woodfield , spinster ; and a shirt , the property of Thomas Jourdan , August 11 . *

Mr. Miles. The prisoner lived with one Mr. Reyner, in Hoxton town; Mary Hall lives with me; she said there was some body frequented the house that was not honest; we could not tell who to suspect; there was a cloak of Mary Hall's missing; we went over to the prisoner's mistress, and desired she would look over the prisoner's things; she did, and came and brought an apron; after that we made farther enquiry; there were after that two pair of sleeves; then the prisoner being taken up, and charged with taking these things, she confessed she had sent one Anne Allen to pawn several things at Mr. Cox's, a petticoat, two handkerchiefs and an apron.

Mary Hall. I live with Mr. Miles, I lost a petticoat and two linen aprons; one of the aprons and petticoat were found at the pawnbroker's, (produced in court and deposed to;) the prisoner told me she had sent them there. I lost them some time in May last, and found them the 12th of August; we lost many things five months ago; the prisoner owned she had taken a good many things, but could not tell the number of them; the other things belong to people that are out of their minds under my master's care.

Prisoner. I hope the court will be as favourable as possible.
