Re: Pierrepoint Auction
On the the who was hung in 1834 page is a Link that takes you to a site on executions.
Ive sent them the story of William Jobling hung at Durham Gaol because I saw a section on Prisons used for executions inc Durham.
I also learned they executed people for burglary
Executed lots of wives for murdering husbands (wonder why?)and illigitemate children.
