The same Night ran awa y one Richard Cross, alias Richard Breeding, who, it is supo'd, stole the said Horse: He is a tall Man, of a dark Complexion, with port, black, currd Hair; his Cloathing was a blew Broadcloth Coat and Wastecoat, a dark coloured Kersy Coat, an d a Pair of purple coloured Leather Breeches: He is this Country born. Whoever apprebends the said Runaway and Horse, shall have Two Pistoles Reward paid bySamuel Earle.

      Orange Co. Court Order Book I March 1738/9 (Virginia) "At a Call'd Court held for Orange County the xxii day of March, 1738. Richard Cross alias Richard Breaden, a prisoner committed to the goal of this County by a precept under the hand and Sea l of Benj. Cave Gent. one of his Majesties Justices of sd. county dated the 17th day of march 1738 on suspicion of feloniously taking a Gray Gelding belonging to Philip Buckner of Gloucester County, Gent. being brought before the Court and Exami ned and all the Witnesses and Circumstances relating to the said Fact being duly
      heard and considered this Court are of Opinion that the said Richard Cross alias Breaden, is guilty of that fact whereof he is accused and that he ought to be tryed for same before the Gen'l Court and therefore remand the said Richad Cross alia s Breadon to the county Goal there to
      remain until he shall be thence delivered by due Course of Law." Samuel Earle and James Herndon put up 100 Pounds each as bond to appear in court to give evidence
      Virginia Colonial Decisions; Reports by Randolf and Barradahl 1728-1741 ----the Horse belonged to one Buckner in Gloucester and had stray'd into Prince W'm. where he was taken up by one Earl and kept on his plantation 3 or 4 months---from whenc e the Prisoner took him apparently with
      Felonious intent--" But "The Court started a doubt that this Horse, being a stray, as they Termed it, Felony could not be committed by taking it---" "The Court were of Opinion that it was no Felony and so the Prisoner was acquitted. There wa s I think only 6 Judges ag't 5."
