[John Freel, Rose Keefe, Michael Murray and Mary Freele were indicted for theft at the home of one of the listeners, John Ferquharson. At trial on 23 October 1771 Mary Freel was acquitted, the others all found guilty and sentenced to death]  

 

John Ferquharson: I am a victualler, and live in a yard near St. Giles's. Mary Freel, Michael Murray and Mary Delaney came into my house on the 2d of October, between eight and nine at night, along with two fiddles; Murray pretended to be very drunk; they came with the fiddle playing down the court where I live. They danced in the house, and rapped all their hands on the table together to make a noise; they called for liquor to the amount of two shillings and three pence as fast as I could serve them. Rose Keefe came in a little after the music began[.]

[…]

 

Catherine Delaney: […] Mrs. Freel wanted to speak with me; I went to her; she asked me to go and drink with her at Ferquharson's, I went with her, I think the music was there before I came in; Keefe was there only part of the time; Mrs. Freel came down at last and bid them go home, upon which they all went away. I knew nothing at that time of what was doing above stairs.
