ELIZABETH BROWN, Theft - stealing from master, 26th October 1826.
1983. ELIZABETH BROWN was indicted for stealing, on the 20th of September , 1 watch, value 30s.; eight silver spoons, value 18s., and 1 shawl, value 2s. , the goods of Charles Christian , her master.
REBECCA CHRISTIAN . I am the wife of Charles Christian; we live in Sun-yard, Lower East Smithfield . The prisoner was my servant . On the 20th of September, I went out, and left her mangling; I returned in twenty minutes, and she was out, and never returned; she had come to me on the 10th of August, and had not asked my leave to go away. I then missed a watch, eight spoons, and a shawl; when she was taken, she had the shawl I on.
CHARLES CHRISTIAN. When my wife came home, she inquired for the servant: I thought she was up-stairs, but she was gone. Next day I found the watch and spoons in pawn.
RICHARD ROPER . I am a pawnbroker, and live in Whitechapel. I have a watch pawned on the 20th of September, in the name of Theodocia Brown; I believe the prisoner to be the person.
WILLIAM JOHN LONGER . I live with Mr. Williams, pawnbroker, Spitalfields. I have four tea-spoons pawned by the prisoner on the 21st of September.
THOMAS ORORN . I am an officer, and received her in charge; she had this shawl on.(Property produced and sworn to.)
