1480. MARY ANDERSON and JOHN EVANS were indicted for stealing, on the 22d of September , two half-crowns and four shillings, the monies of Isaac Barron , from his person .

ISAAC BARRON . I am a straw hat manufacturer . I I saw the prisoner Anderson in Ropemaker-street , about eleven o’clock at night; she accosted me; I said I wanted nothing to do with her. She thrust me against the wall, put her hand into my breeches pocket, and took out two half-crowns and four shillings. I saw three shillings and a half-crown in her hand; I felt and missed it all - she ran off - I followed, and found her talking to Evans - he was with her at first - she had left him to come to me. He was a hundred yards off. I found them in Crown-court, about twenty yards off; I asked her for my money; she gave me one half-crown and three shillings back, and said she had given the rest away. Evans heard her say it. I met a watchman, who took them to the watch-house, and found half a crown and one shilling on Evans. I know the shilling by a mark on it.

DIX MOORE. I am a constable. The prosecutors charged the prisoners with robbing him, and said Evans was in Anderson’s company. He knew the shilling found on Evans. He came voluntarily to the watch-house, Evans said the shilling was his own; the prosecutor said he could swear to it.

ISAAC BARRON . I know it by a black mark on the head.

ANDERSON’s Defence. He pulled me about in an indecent manner, and gave me the money.

EVANS’s Defence. I was speaking to this woman; she turned down a court with the prosecutros; I heard a cry of Stop thief! and she had just got up to me, when he took her - I followed them to the watch-house, from curiosity, and was detained.


Transported for Seven Years .

EVANS - GUILTY . Aged 42.

Transported for life .

Second Middlesex Jury, before W. Arabin, Esq.
