3/7/1822 Old Bailey:
JOHN KERNS and CHARLES MARSH were indicted for stealing, on the 1st of July , at St. Mary, Islington, four silver salt cellars, value 20 s., and twelve silver spoons value 2 l., the goods of Philip William Thomas , in his dwelling-house.

KERNS’s Defence. Being short of work, I went to the New River to wash; I walked across the field into the road, got over a gate, and laid down in an oat field, and was taken by these men, who asked where the clothes were which I had stolen, and forty or fifty yards off some of the plate was found.
MARSH’S Defence. I went to seek for work in the country, and about two o’clock, finding myself tired and dirty, I went to the river to wash; I afterwards heard the cry, and ran across the field, as any one else would; I got over into the garden and went to sleep.
