CHARLES ELSWORTH, CHARLES NUTTALL, ROBERT WELDON, JAMES RANDALL, JABEZ GREEN, MARY ANN KING, Theft > grand larceny, Miscellaneous > perverting justice, 14th January 1824.
Middlesex Cases, Second Jury,
Before Mr. Recorder.
221. CHARLES ELSWORTH , CHARLES NUTTALL , ROBERT WELDON , JAMES RANDALL , and JABEZ GREEN were indicted for stealing, on the 26th of December , six saws, value 20 s.; eleven planes, value 20 s.; a stock, value 7 s.; a bit, value 6 d.; a pair of dividers, value 6 d.; a chisel, value 6 d.; a gauge, value 6 d., and a bevil, value 1 s., the goods of George Watmough ; and two trowels, value 2 s., the goods of Charles Lindsay ; and a trowel, value 1 s. , the goods of Thomas Clark ; and MARY ANN KING was indicted for feloniously receiving, harbouring, and maintaining the said prisoners, well knowing them to have committed the said felony .
GEORGE WATMOUGH . I am a carpenter . I was working at a house in Asher-street West , and left the house on the 24th of December, about half-past four o’clock. Lindsay and Clark worked in the adjoining house. I left all my tools, which were worth 3 l. or 4 l., locked up in a chest, and the house locked up. I saw five persons lurking about the house on Christmas-eve, after dinner; Weldon was one of them - I cannot be certain of the others. On the 26th, between nine and ten o’clock in the morning, I found a hole cut through the brick work; my chest broken open, and most of my tools gone. I found them at Queen-square office next day, with a glue kettle, which was also taken.
THOMAS PACE . I am an officer. On the 26th of December, about half-past eleven o’clock, I apprehended all the prisoners in one room - Elsworth was just coming out; I pushed him into the room, and found a quantity of tools under a half-tester bed, and Nuttall was filing a key. I called Handley in; there was only one bed in the room; they all denied knowing anything of the tools. King acknowledged that the room was her’s, and said she had been out all night. I know that she lived there.
Cross-examined by MR. LAW. Q. Where did you find them - A. At No. 1, Pump-court, Perkins’s-rents, Old Pye-street. Some of the tools were in a cupboard.
EDWARD JOHN HANDLEY . I was with Pace; his account is correct. Weldon was nearest to the trowels - I asked who they belonged to; he said to a plaisterer up stairs. I went up; there was no plaisterer there.
(Property produced and sworn to.)
WELDON - GUILTY . Aged 15.
GREEN - GUILTY . Aged 21.
Transported for Seven Years .
KING - GUILTY . Aged 21.
Confined One Year .
Before Mr. Justice Burrough.
