Old Bailey Proceedings Online (http://www.oldbaileyonline.org, version 8.0, 23 March 2020), December 1816, trial of GEORGE WARWICK JOHN WARWICK (t18161204-4).
GEORGE WARWICK, JOHN WARWICK, Theft > burglary, 4th December 1816.
4. GEORGE WARWICK and JOHN WARWICK were indicted for burglariously breaking and entering the dwelling-house of Edmund Jordan , about twelve in the night of the 19th of November , at Harmondsworth , with intent to steal, and stealing therein two sheets, value 6s. four pounds weight of pork, value 2s. two loaves of bread, value 2s. one gallon of elder wine, value 5s. one bottle, value 1s. and four pounds weight of cheese , the property of the said Edmund Jordan .

EDMUND JORDAN. I live at Harmondsworth. On the 20th of last month, in consequence of information I had received, I went down stairs about four o’clock in the morning, and observed my pantry window (which was a lattice, and not made to open), broken open; it was safe at eleven o’clock the preceding night; a small man could get through the hole which was broken-the pantry is part of my house. I searched and found I had lost the articles enumerated in the indictment; they were taken from different rooms in my house, I am sure all the articles were safe the night before. I also lost two loaves out of my bakehouse, which was locked the night before, and is part of the house.

STEPHEN LEE . I belong to the horse-patrole. In consequence of information which I received, I went to the Sun public-house at Harmondsworth, and secured the two prisoners; on searching them, I found these two sheets on them. I did not find any thing else on them.

(Produced and sworn to).

Both the prisoners pleaded distress.



Recommended to mercy by the prosecutor .

First Middlesex jury, before Mr. Baron Richards .
