Original Text:
874. SAMUEL JAMES HODGSON was indicted for stealing, on the 15th of April, 3 yards of silk, value 8s., the goods of Thomas Gardner, his master.

SUSAN GARDNER. I am the wife of Thomas Gardner. I keep a haberdasher's shop in Norton-falgate - the prisoner was in my service about five weeks - on the 15th of April I desired to see his box, with an officer - I thought I saw him take something up with his coat - I took the coat, and found this paper with this silk folded in it - I said,"This is my silk" - the prisoner said, "That silk I bought and paid for, and I can show you an invoice of it" - he then paused some minutes, and said, "Can you swear to that silk?" - I said, "I can - there are about three yards of it - here is a notch which corresponds with the roll of silk that was in the shop" - I went into the shop, and compared the silk, and it matched exactly - the prisoner then said, "If you will walk up stairs, I will explain it to you"- he then said, "I have cut the silk off" - he went on his knees and begged me to forgive him - I said, "No; you thought very little of robbing me, but for the protection of my own property I must give you into custody" - he had no right to cut that silk.

Cross-examined by MR. STAMMERS. Q. How long have you been in the retail trade? A. About seventeen years -
See originalif a shopman wishes to purchase any thing, the custom is for him to apply to another person in the shop, and have it cut off, and then bring it to his employer to have it entered in a book - it is not the custom for a shopman to take goods for his own use, and to enter it in the evening - the prisoner never mentioned to me that he wanted a piece of silk of this kind - he says he named it to some of my young people - I received information of this from my boy, and sent for the officer - the prisoner looked into his pocket-book for the invoice of this, but did not find it, and when he went up stairs he said he cut it off the roll.

WILLIAM ALEFOUNDER. I am shop-boy to the prosecutor. I was there that morning - I saw the prisoner come to the top of the shop, and take a yard measure down - he went to the bottom of the shop, put his hand under the wrapper, took down a piece of silk and put it on the counter - he put the yard measure to the silk, and took the scissors out of his pocket and cut the silk off - he put it into his pocket, rolled the roll up, and put it into its place.

Cross-examined. Q. Where were you? A. At the door, cleaning the window - there was no one in the shop - he did not conceal this - there was a pile of boxes before him - he did not cut off a random piece - he measured it with the stick - I do not think there was a carpenter at work.

BENJAMIN BEAVIS. I was sent for to take the prisoner- the silk was found in my presence.

Prisoner's Defence. I deny any felonious intention of appropriating it to my own use - it is the custom of our trade for a shopman to have any goods he may want - it is immaterial whether it is measured by yourself or any one else - I can bring two witnesses who will swear that I showed them a piece of silk on the Thursday before, and on the Monday I ascertained what quantity I wanted - the value of a young man depends on his knowing his business, with regard to leaving such a length of silk as may be of benefit to his employer - I said to one of my witnesses that if I cut three yards off one of the pieces, it would be an injury, as it would leave but eleven yards, which would be an unsaleable length - it is not likely if I had wished to appropriate this to my own use that I should take the measure and cut it off - the carpenter stood close to me when I cut it off, but I have not been able to procure him - he said to me, "Shall I remove, Sir, am I in your way?" - I said"No, not at all" - there were boards on the counter, but they did not conceal me at all - this boy has had an animosity against me for a fortnight before - he cannot deny that on the Wednesday or Thursday before, he was very saucy, and I told him I would box his ears - he continued his impertinence, and I took hold of his ears, but did not hurt him - his father came there that day - I told him, and he desired me to correct him at any time - on the morning this happened, he was very sancy, while he was on the steps - I was obliged to tell him to do the windows over again - he said Mr. Withers, who was my predecessor, never told him to do it, and he would not - I said he was very saucy, and if it were not that I should have to pay for the glass, I would knock him off the steps; and when I went to breakfast he said I had been cutting off silk, and not entered it- it is only spite and malice that has induced this charge by him - all that I have had has been entered, both cash and goods.

MARGARET GLYNN. I am Mrs. Gardner's niece; I help her in her shop. On the 8th of April the prisoner had some stockings and some ribbon for his own use, at a low price, and Mrs. Gardner entered them in the book - I think it was about the same time the prisoner told me he wanted a piece of silk for some bonnets - I told him it would take three yards to make two bonnets, which I understood he wanted - he brought two pieces to me, and said one was fourteen yards long, and he asked if I thought two yards would do for the bonnets, as it would leave twelve yards, which would make a dress - I told him I thought it would require three yards - he said he thought he should have it, but he did not say what quantity - I never entered things- I never knew any one to have things when Mrs. Gardner was not there.

COURT. Q. Did he tell you he had cut off three yards? A. No. He never desired me to enter it to him.

MARY ANN PRIESTLY. I am apprentice to Mrs. Gardner. I was standing by the last witnesses when the prisoner asked her what quantity it would take to make two bonnets - she said "Three yards;" and I said so too.

MRS. GARDNER re-examined. I searched the prisoner's box, about half-past eight o'clock that morning - when I heard of this, I called the boy up - the prisoner asked him how he dared to say such a thing; and put himself in a great passion - I said, "Do not put yourself in a passion; you have no objection to my searching your box?" - he said,"No, nor my person either" - I then sent for the officer.(Field Wade, painter, and Joseph Charles Jefferys, gave the prisoner a good character.)

Publication

 

A Dictionary of London Author Henry A Harben Year published 1918

 

"Blue Hart Court

 

West out of Little Bell Alley to Little Swan Alley. In Coleman Street Ward (Strype, ed. 1720-O.S. 1880).

 

Removed for the formation of Throgmorton Avenue, etc. "

 

"George Alley, pretty long, and indifferently well built. White Rose Court, but indifferent, falls into Masons Alley; which is also but mean, and so into Basing hall street. Bell Alley, very long, goes out of Coleman street, and runs Eastward to the Passage into Token house Yard; and then it turns Northward, and runs as far as London Wall. The part of this Alley, from Coleman street to Mulbery Court, is pretty broad, and indifferent well built and inhabited: But the part running Northward, is more narrow, and hath some good Houses, especially on the East side. In this Alley are several small Courts, viz. Mulbery Court, goeth up steps very narrow and dark, but after the entrance, it is a pretty handsome Court: On the West side it hath a Passage into Whites Alley. Whalebone Court, pretty handsome, with a Free stone Pavement. Pitchers Court, a large square Place, with pretty good Buildings; hath a Passage into Whites Alley. Blue Hart Court, a good handsome genteel Place, with a Free stone Pavement; hath a Passage down Steps, into Swan Alley. Whites Alley, very long, but narrow, comes out of Coleman street, and falls into Pitchers Court; which is a good handsome place, having a Door into Bell Alley, and a passage thereunto upon sufferance. On the North side, and about the middle of the Alley, is a place called Alms House Yard, containing six Houses, for so many poor Men and their Wives; or the Survivers of them, belonging to the Company of Leathersellers. Pump Court, but small and ordinary. Carpenters Yard, being only a large Timber Yard. White Hind Court, a pretty handsome Place, but narrow."

 

The above from John Stow’s Elizabethan classic, A Survey of London, was first published in 1598, with a second edition following in 1603. In the century following Stow’s death, however, the Tudor capital so lovingly depicted and recorded in Stow’s Survey was dramatically transformed. The huge growth of the metropolis, the devastation wrought by the Great Fire of 1666 and the subsequent rebuilding of the City made an updating of the Survey highly desirable. It was to answer this need that John Strype (1643-1737), the ecclesiastical historian and biographer, published a new, hugely expanded version of Stow’s Survey of London in 1720.
