ROBERT BENNET DARNLEY . I live in the Harrow-road , with my mother, at present, in Paddington parish.
Q. Who keeps the house - A. Elizabeth Potticary , widow. The prisoner was a lodger in the house. The watch was hanging over the mantle-piece, in my mother's room, at half past eight o'clock on the 23d. My mother died on the evening before, at half past eight o'clock, on the 22d. On the 23d, I went to Pimlico, and from there I went into the city, and when I went up stairs, on my return home,
the nurse told me the watch was gone from off the mantle piece.
Q. Who is Dempster, Latham, and Timothy Leach
- A. Executors, and Edmund Bennet Darnley is my son. My mother left the watch to him.
SARAH HUNT . I lived with the lady sixteen years ago, and when she was taken ill, she sent for me to come and take care of her and her property. She died on the 22d of October. I asked the prisoner to help me in laying the body out. About one o'clock at night I called her, and she helped me in laying her out. I gave her half-a-crown, and discharged her. Between three and four in the afternoon, she came to me very tipsy; that was the next day. I asked her what she wanted; she said, would I give her a pot of water for her tea. I looked at the watch, and said, I would give her a pot of water, when I had done tea. She then went to the fire place and took the watch.
Q. You did not see her take it, did you - A. No. I did not miss it until she went down stairs. The undertaker came, and I did not see any more of it until the undertaker was gone. As soon as the undertaker came, she ran out of the street-door. I then called out to Mr. Darnley, and said, Oh! Mr. Darnley, that wretch has taken your mother's watch. Mr. Darnley is the lady's own son. We pursued her, but could not find her.
FRANCIS WILKINSON . The prisoner came, on Friday night, the 23d, about half past four. She said she had been laying a woman out, and she had got a watch to pledge for her son, in the name of Thomas Smith , and if I would pledge it for her, she would give me a few half pence. The same watch I took to the pawnbrokers for her.
THOMAS NEATE . I am a pawnbroker. I live in Bird-street, Manchester-square. This is the watch, the last witness pledged with me, on the 23d. I lent her 2l. upon it.
SAMUEL MILES . I am a constable. On the 23d of October, Mr. Darnley came to me. He said the prisoner had robbed him of his mother's watch. I know the prisoner; she was tried here last April sessions. I took her in custody.
Q. to Prosecutor. Now look at the watch - A. I am sure it is mine.
