[The three accused were found guilty of assault and robbery on 16 January 1741, sentenced to death and executed at Tyburn on 18 March 1741. An account of the executions describes one of the listeners, Thomas Richardson, as Elizabeth Fox’s husband, who turned evidence and so ‘hang’d his wife’ (Ordinary’s Account, 18 March 1741, ref.  OA17410318)]

 

Elizabeth Fox, Priscilla Mahon, alias Trilcourt, and John Elvar, of St. Martin in the Fields, were indicted for that they on the 23d of October last, in the dwelling-House of a Person unknown, on William Layton, in the Peace, &c. did make an Assault, and  […] did steal, etc.

 

William Layton: As I was going down the Hay-market, the 23d of October, between 7 and 8 o'Clock, the Prisoner Fox came up to me; I said Mistress it is a very cold Night, and she said a Dram wou'd do very well […]  I went with her to this House, and Mabon followed us in, and when we had drank 3 Quarterns [of rum], I would have come out, and was got to the Door for that Purpose, but Fox and Mabon siezed me[.]

[…]

Richardson: I believe it was a little after Eleven when the Thing was done; - they made a Noise and sung  the Countryman some Songs, that he might not hear the Watch pass by.
