[Francis Piggot [Horton], 29 years old and John Johnson, 17, were found guilty of assault and robbery and executed at Tyburn on 12 June 1741, an account of which, including biographical details, was recorded by the Newgate Ordinary, ref. no. OA17410612] 

 

[Constable] Edward Harvey: The last Witness came to me on the 25th of April, and told me, that a Man had been robbed of his Watch and Buckle, and he had told him where he lived, and that he knew one of the persons. We set out about 7 o'Clock in the Morning, and got Information, that a Milkwoman in Gray's-Inn Lane used to come to Piggot; […]  at last I came to the right, and on my enquiring for Piggot, the Woman said , he and another were just gone out together, but would be within in a short time. […]  So I sent the Watchman and the Prosecutor [Henry Corner] into Bow-street […] the two Prisoners came in. I catch'd up a poker, and told them what my Business was, and then one of the Women lock'd them up in her Room; but after some Time, they surrendered, and we carried them before Justice Poulson, who examined them separate. They both confessed the Fact; Johnson in particular said, he held Corner down, and stopped his Mouth, while Piggot took his Watch and Buckle, and then both ran away. Horton owned the same, and behaved with great Boldness at the Justice's, and went out snapping his Fingers, singing., At the Tree I shall suffer with Pleasure; and said, he should have a short Life and a merry one.
