Description
Despite the frequency with which criminals were sentenced to death, crime was still on the rise in England in the mid-18th century. One of the most popular publications of the era was The Newgate Calendar, which described convictions for everything from associating with gypsies and cutting down fruit trees to murders, robberies, and kidnappings, and the source for many of the crimes recounted here. We meet Catherine Hayes, burnt alive for the murder of her husband; Reverend Wheatley, sentenced to public penance for adultery; John Everett, sentenced to death for highway robbery; and Francis Smith, condemned to death for the murder of a supposed ghost.
