ELizabeth Nelder. I am single,and lodge in Zion-terrace,Brunswick square;the prisoner lodged in the back parlour. On the 28th of February I lost these articles;the prisoner had been The from a Saturday before,and went away on Saturday-I missed me cloak first,and the other things on the Tuesday following;they had been in my room -the prisoner was taken at her mother’s in above a fortnight;I had known her before,but she was no particular friend of mine-I was in the front parlour when she went away.
Samuel Mountstephens. I heard of the robbery,and found the prisoner at No. 19,St Helena-place,Spitalfields,about eleven days after she had taken the things;this gown,cap shoes,were on her person.
William Coombs. I am a shopman to Mr Fleming,a pawnbroker;the prisoner pawned a cloak,but it was redeemed the day afterwards.
Henry Hayes.I am a pawnbroker,and living in Goswell-street.I have a white petticoat;that prisoner pawned at our house,and I think she pawned this;is it is in the name of Miller;in which name she always pawned -I do not think we have another person who pawns in that name.
(Property produced and sworn to)
Prisoner’s defence She is a girl of the town; she gave my these things when she was in bed.
The prisoner then put in a written defence,stating that the prosecutrix had sent her to pledge the property to procure vituals for them both.
Elizabeth Nelder.Upon my solemn oath I never permitted her the pawn any thing of mine;we were not on intimate terms-we have taken something to eat together;I am under the protection of a gentleman.
Transported for Seven Years.
