    I do wonder if Pentonville had so many visitors in the past?

    The new Gaol blurb mentions prisoners transferred to Bedford and many Bedford prisoners are mentioned in the site previously linked to on this thread.

    He died in 1858. He was in jail for stealing a pewter mug from the pub. His brother was also charged but Charles ended up in jail, his brother didn't. Thanks to some English rellies I have a fair bit of information, including his cause of death...kidney blockage, but just thought I would see if there was anything more. I will check that out, thanks Mutters. :)

    I've just realised that I have that link saved in my favourites from several years ago that TonyV put up. I thought the picture looked familiar.;)

    Sorry to try and get back on track :rolleyes:, but there are countless trial records to view and download FOC from the Old Bailey site. This could be well worth a visit.

    I have yet to find complete confirmation but it appears that one of my black sheep was up before the Beak there on at least 2 occasions in the late 1700's, and he was from Lancashire.
