Quarter Sessions

John Tattersall, Mary Campbell, and Margaret Cliff, (not in the calendar) were charged with stealing from the person of Wm. Travers, at Burnley, on the 7th of April, four shillings and fivepence.
Mr. Whigham conducted the prosecution.
Mr Addeson appeared for the prisoner Tattersall. Wm. Travers, on being called, stated that he was a painter, and resided at Burnley; was, on Monday night last,in Cannon-street, in Burnley, in company with two soldiers. They heard a cry of murder proceeding from a house, and he (witness) boldly rushed in, and saw the prisoner Tattersall, assisted by the two female prisoners, holding a gentleman down on the floor. Told them not to murder him, if they robbed him. The gentleman got up, took up his hat and went away. When the gentleman had gone, the two women ordered witness to go away. He refused to do so until he saw more about it, and was attacked by the woman Campbell with a poker, shovel, and brush. One of the women then said go and fetch Jack. Jack had gone away a short time before the gentleman. Jack came and up with his fist, and knocked witness down. The two women, when he was down, held him; and, during the scuffle, his pocket was rifled of one half-crown, one shilling pence, sixpence, and five-pence in copper. Could not say which of them put their hand in his pocket. He called out "murder!" and a policeman came. The prisoner (Tattersall) had him on the ground at the time. His pocket was torn, and his money taken out. He told the constable he had been robbed of four shillings and five-pence, and charged the prisoners with taking it.
Thomas Green, a private in the 56th regiment, deposed to being with the last witness, on Monday night last, and accompanying him to his lodgings, where he saw him give his landlady three half-crowns to take care of. He asked for one of them back, which, with some moeny he had in his hand, amounted to four shillings and five-pence. He (witness) afterwards went to the house in Cannon-street, where he saw Tattersall holding Travers down, and the two women standing near him.
Sykes, a special constable, at Burnley, also deposed to seeing the prosecutor on the ground, and the prisoner Tattersall having hold of his neckcloth.
The jury returned a verdict of not guilty, the evidence not being conclusive as to which of the three had stolen the money.

Quarter Sessions

John Heyes, 30 (n.), and Elizabeth Nutter, 20 (n.), were charged with stealing, at Burnley, on the 26th March, a pair of shoes, the property of Jonathan Wright. The female prisoner pleaded guilty.
Mr Ingham prosecuted.
It appeared that the prisoners had gone after dusk into the shop of the prosecutor, who keeps a shoe warehouse, at Burnley, under pretence of buying a pair of shoes, and took their opportunity of abstracting a pair from behind the counter, where they had asked permission to look at some. They then went away, saying there were none which suited. Elizabeth Hodgson saw the prisoners together that evening, at the King's Arms, and the shoes under the woman's shawl. The male prisoner was also seen by her to take the shoes from under the female prisoner's shawl, saying, at the same time, he would make somebody a good bargain of them. The shoes were prodused and identified. A record of a previous conviction was put in and proved against the prisoner Heyes, who was sentenced to ten years' transportation; the female prisoner to two months' hard labour at the House of Correction.
