      James Gibbs was indicted for stealing on the 28th of May, one watch value 2L, one pelisse value 1L, one waistcoat value 10s, one handkerchief value 2s, and one pair of stockings value 1s, the goods of John Burnikell.

      John Burnikell: I belong to a Newcastle ship. The prisoner was also on board the ship. We arrived in the river in May and moored near the Tower on the Middlesex side of the river. I missed my things on the 28th of May. My watch was on my bed's head, and the other articles in my chest - the prisoner could get at it. Suspecting him, I got an officer and he was taken two days afterwards. I went directly, and saw my watch in Wright's window. He is a pawnbroker. The prisoner had been on board nine or ten months.

      Edward Green: I am an officer. On the 28th of May Burnikell described the prisoner to me - on the 30th I found him at the George in St Ann's Lane, Westminster, and found the duplicate of the watch pledged at Wright's in his pocket. He was in bed; he got up. The prosecutor claimed the clothes which he had got on. - He confessed they were his.

      James Courtney: I live with Mr Wright, who is a pawnbroker, and lives in Tothill St, Westminster. On the 28th of May I took the watch in pledge from the prisoner for 1L.

      Property produced and sworn to.

      Confined three months. Guilty. Aged 19.
