    • It cannot be proved which James Ennever this is, but it seems likely it is this James as he is the only one of about the correct age. There is also a John Johnson living in St Clement Danes but no trace of a David Detmar.

      1508. JOHN JOHNSON, JAMES ENNEVER , and DAVID DETMAR , were indicted for stealing, on the 14th of April, 1 handkerchief, value 3s., the goods of Frederick Pickard, from his person; to which

      JOHNSON pleaded GUILTY . Aged 17—Recommended to mercy.— Confined Three Months.

      FREDERICK PICKARD . I went to Greenwich fair on the 14th of April—I had a handkerchief in my pocket—I saw it safe about five minutes before I received information from the policeman—I then looked about, and saw my handkerchief in the prisoner Johnson's hand—this is it.

      CHARLES BURGESS GOFF (police-constable L 31.) I was there on duty about two o'clock in the afternoon—I saw the prisoners there together for about an hour—they were walking and talking together—I saw them go behind several gentlemen—Johnson was in the middle each time, and felt four or five gentlemen's pockets—the others stood one on each side of him, so as to cover him, and prevent any body seeing him—I then saw them go behind the prosecutor—Johnson went first, and the other two closed on him—Ennever stood on his left hand, and lifted the tail of bis coat against Johnson, while Johnson took the handkerchief—Detmar was on the right-hand side of Johnson, but I lost sight of him the moment the handkerchief was taken.

      JONATHAN WHICHER (police-constable E 47.) I was with Goff, and saw the prisoners for upwards of an hour, walking and talking together—I saw Johnson feel several gentlemen's pockets—the other two went and closed up behind him, I suppose, to endeavour to conceal him—I saw Johnson take the handkerchief from the prosecutor's pocket—I immediately took him into custody—before he took it the others were one on each side of him, but the moment I took Johnson with the handkerchief in his hand, I looked round, and Detmar was gone.

      CHARLES BURGESS GOFF re-examined. Ennever and Detmar must have seen Johnson take this, and I have no doubt they must have seen him try the other pockets.

      ENNEVER— NOT GUILTY .

      DETMAR— NOT GUILTY .
