Jjnt Shv, the platnttf' daughter, was

lance with her. lie was about four months
older than herself. In that month she
was going home with some work, when
he vnet her, and asked her if he should
accompany her, and ahe replied in the ne

next evening but she said ahe did not
wish any such thing. About two or three
evenings afterwarda she met him again as
she wss going home with some work
He asked her if abe would take a walk
with him, which ahe refused. In Janua
ry, 1819, he met hernear the Limekilns,
in the Greenwich 'roadT'IIe said he had
aomcthing to ssy to her. He got off his
horse, and made her take bold of his arm.
They walked to Lea Grove. He solemn
ly promised to marry Iter, and offered a
piomise in writing, which she refused, aa
she trusted to bis honor. In the begin.
ningof March, 1830, she became preg
nant, and in the foltowinr November she
was brought to bed. Her father knew

was onttoo soon, and he feared ahe would
catch cold; he said he wanted to see her
father her father had maintained the
child ever since. Previous to that time
ahe had devoted her earnings to the main
tenance of her father and mother, and
since then to the support of her child.

wards the Rose and Crown. At that time
she used to sleep at the house of her fa
ther with a girl about 15. Iter reason
for not wishing her parents to know of
ber acquaintance with the defendant was,
that the did not believe the defendant
meant to perform hia promise of mar

relief from the parish fur the support of
her child nor any money from the defen
