Also known as Julianna
Convicted: Middlesex Gaol Delivery, Old Bailey, London, 19 September 1810
Crime: Highway robbery
Sentence: 7 years
James Escombe told the court that Ann came up to him late at night in Holborn, near the Coach and Horses Inn and put her arm around him. He realised immediately she had taken his watch. He reached out to grab her; Ann cried murder and Escombe cried out that he had been robbed. She got away when two Hackeny coachmen stopped and restrained Escombe. A week later, Escombe went in search of her with his landlord and found Ann in a nearby inn. She ran away again to a house in Shorts Gardens and they followed her and made her accompany them to the watchhouse. The watch was not found.
