JOHN JONES . I am a jeweller, and live in Union-street, Hackney-road.On the night of the 26th of June I was in Hackney-road, near St.Thomas's-street, a little after ten o'clock—it was not a very clearnight, nor yet very dark—I observed a two-wheeled gig coming towardsLondon, and three persons in it—It was drawn by one horse—the prisonerBryant was driving, and Nind was on the left-hand side in thegig—Bryant was in the middle, and a person not present was on hisright hand—they were coming at the rate of seven or eight miles anhour—Bryant sometimes sat forward, and sometimes backwards—it was nota very large gig—I saw Nind's hat fall—the gig was pulled up to pickup the hat—somebody walking along picked it up, and gave it to Nind—Iwas about 200 yards off, on the right-hand side—the gig was going fromme—I saw it start again at about the same rate as before.

JURY. Q. What was the distance between the hat and gig when itstopped? A. Three or four yards—they pulled up immediately.

MR. BODKIN. Q. Shortly after they started did you hear a noise? A. Myattention was drawn to a shop window at the time of the accident—Iheard a noise, looked round, and a boy bad been run over—this wasfifty or a hundred yards after they had started after getting thebat—the gig went on after the accident—I ran after it, and found itstopped by Deering, and the same three persons were in it—Bryant said,"Leave go of the horse, for the horse and chaise are mine"—Deering hadhold of the horse at the time—they were detained, and taken back to anapothecary's shop, where the boy was carried.

COURT. Q. You saw them then in the shop, were they drunk? A. Theywere.

Cross-examined by MR. CLARKSON. Q. You are quite sure Bryant wasdriving? A. Quite—I never saw either of them before—it was not a veryclear night, nor very dark, but there was plenty of lamps in the shopsround to give a view of what was running along the road—I served sevenyears to a jeweller—it is six years since I was out of myapprenticeship—I have followed the jewellery ever since—I now work forPerkins, in Gray's-inn-lane, facing Elm-street—he has a manufacturingshop, but not a show shop—I have not always worked for him since myapprenticeship—I was a policeman fourteen or sixteen months—my timeexpired about three years ago—on the night in question I was comingfrom Cambridge-heath—I had been taking a walk—I started about eighto'clock—I was coming up the road from nine to ten o'clock—I did not goto Cambridge-heath to see any body—I did not go to a public-house—thefact is, I had no money, if I had I might, have gone—I had no objectin going out but to take a walk—I

COURT. Q. You say Bryant was driving—are you sure the man who sat inthe middle was driving? A. Yes—I saw them before they came up to me—Iwas on the right-hand side, and they on the left—I was as near to thegig as I am to your Lordship—there was very little light from the

light of the evening—I cannot say whether there was any apron to thegig, or any thing to cover their legs—when I came up to them, whenDeering stopped them, Bryant had the reins and was sitting in themiddle.

I knew William Young—I was playing with him thatevening—he was fourteen years old, and so am I—we were running acrossthe road playing at touch—I noticed a carrier's cart going towardsHackley—it was not going very fast—it was trotting—we had done playingwhen the accident happened, and Young ran across the road to gohome—the carrier's cart was on the side we were—he ran from behind thecart, and ran directly under the gig horse's head—the horse and chaisewere coming towards Shoreditch, meeting the cart—I cannot exactly tellhow near it came to the cart—I did not notice how near the nearestwheel of the gig was to the cart—they did not drive so as nearly totouch each other—Young ran direct from behind the cart under thehorse's head—I do not think there was room for a horse to go betweenthe gig and the cart—the horse struck out his knee, and that knockedhim down backwards—I saw the horse and

COURT. Q. Which hand did he knock you down with? A. His right hand—hehad nothing in his hand, no whip—he moved his hand backwards, andknocked me down—he turned his head round—he told me to get down—Icalled out loud to them that they had run over a boy.

the lad—I did not see them before—I saw the lad knocked down—the gigwent on much faster—I could not tell who was in it—I took the deceasedto a doctor's shop.

JOHN DEERIKG . I am a grocer, and live in Hope-street, Hackney. I wasin Hackney-road, and heard a call of "Stop thief,'—I saw about a dozenpeople standing by the gate, and saw a gig starting from the corner ofUnion-street—it passed me—I stopped it at Shoreditch church—the boywas knocked down about three hundred yards from the church—threegentlemen were in the gig, the two prisoners, and one who is nothere—when I stopped the gig, the one not here was driving—he wassitting on the left-hand side of the chaise, the wrong side for thedriver—Bryant told me to let go, that it was his horse and chaise, andhe took hold of one of the reins—he seemed to be about half drunk, andMr. Nind not so bad—I should say the man who was driving was sober.

THOMAS MALIN . I am a policeman. I was on duty in Hackney-road, andsaw a horse and gig coming towards me, with three persons in it, whoappeared to be drunk—this was after the accident—I cannot say who wasdriving—I saw Deering overtake the gig, and come up as fast aspossible—Bryant appeared very much in liquor—he had hold of one of thereins—I took them into custody.
Cross-examined. Q. You let go of one of them? A. No—he got away—Icannot say whether that was the man who was driving—the boys play verymuch in the road on my beat—I had attempted to keep the boys out ofthe road several times during the night, before the accidenthappened—there are two or three accidents a week there.

I am house surgeon at St. Bartholomew's Hospital.Young was brought there on the night of the accident, in a state ofinsensibility, labouring under an injury of the head—he died on theMonday afterwards, of a fracture of the skull, with an effusion ofblood on the brain—if knocked down by a horse and gig, that mighthappen—the knee of the horse might have produced the fracture, withouthis being run over—falling heavily on the back of his head wouldproduce the fracture—I should think it doubtful whether the wheel wentover his head—there was a graze on the led cheek, but that might becaused by something else.
Cross-examined. Q. Do you know that the prisoners have paid thefuneral expenses of the lad? A. I have heard so.

About Me

I've been a journalist, researcher & content producer for two decades. Before that, my mum would teach me about tracing her own family tree, in a time without online Genealogy tools, piquing my interest at a young age.
