William Edwards and John Edwards , of the Parish of Christ-Church , were Indicted for stealing one silver Tankard, value 5 l. 10 s. on the 24th of July last, from one Jonathan Marfin . The Evidence for the King was the Wife of the said Marfin; who deposed that the Prisoners coming into her house in Warwick-Lane , called for two Tankards of Drink, and whil'st she and her Servant were busie about the house, they took their opportunity to steal away the Tankard: The Prisoners had but little to say in their Defence, but that they knew nothing of it, and said they were never in the house; using many other frivolous Excuses, and being taken notice of in Court to have lived very Idle Lives, and having no one to appear on their sides; and the Evidence against them being very possitive, they were both brought in Guilty of the Felony, &c.
