Old Bailey Transcript: (t17900915-4)
(http://www.oldbaileyonline.org) 15th September 1790.
ANN GUY was indicted for stealing, on the 26th of November last, a linen shirt, value 8 s. one cotton petticoat, value 4 s. and two linen sheets, value 5 s. the property of John Lee.
JOHN LEE sworn.
I live in the Lower-street, Islington. I lost the things in the indictment from my house, on Thursday, the 26th of November last: I did not see the prisoner take them: I saw them at Mr. Townsend’s, the pawnbroker, in Shoreditch.
I am wife of the last witness. I lost the things in the indictment out of the drawers in the one pair of stairs; on Thursday, the 26th of November, the drawers were not broke open: the prisoner nursed my child at that time: I never saw them till I saw them at the pawnbroker’s, ten months after.
- COOKSON sworn.
I produce the things: they were pledged in the name of Ann Lee ; but I cannot say by whom: I know nothing of the prisoner: duplicates were given of the things.
I am servant to Mr. Lee. I put the things in the drawer: they were missed the 26th of November.
ANN TOMS sworn.
I keep a little chandler’s shop in Brooks’s-gardens. The prisoner came to live there. The prisoner came to me for credit, and brought me this duplicate for a shirt, and a pair of sheets: I cannot tell the day or the month. (The things deposed to.) The duplicate is dated the 28th of November.
I never saw the things, nor never had the duplicate.
Tried by the second Middlesex Jury before Mr. RECORDER.

### Interesting note! Ann was also tried for Housebreaking the same day (t17900915-15) but found Not Guilty of that crime. Both transcripts are consecutive in the records (http://www.oldbaileyonline.org).

In the colony Ann had a de-facto relationship with Thomas Akers (First Fleet Convict, Charlotte, 1788). This relationship started about 1792 and was very long lasting. No record of a marriage has been found.
