Executions and executioners -- England -- Early works to 1800
Found in 1 record:
(Incomplete?) list of executions conducted at the Tyburn gallows in England for the years 1731 and 1732. The list consists of three pages and a fragment; the list provides names, dates of execution, and sometimes the offense committed. The list notes that an experiment was made on a criminal in 1731: "pierce Tympanum and test hearing." The list may have been made for "Dr. Cotton"(?).
