Death Recorded by Pip Wright
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IN SUFFOLK 1732 - 1900


This book looks at the death penalty as it was applied in Suffolk during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. During that time, Assize court judges handed out about a thousand death sentences to felons for a whole range of crimes, from simple theft to murder. Of those, about 170 were hanged, most before an audience of thousands. Some became famous like William Corder, their stories often repeated. Others have become forgotten in the mists of time. This book attempts to make available the details that survive of all those who were tried and found guilty of capital charges.
