Reference Number: s16750414-1

There were besides these a great number of other Falonyes burglaries, and petty Larcenyes, too long to reherse in this short Narrative.

There were in all twenty condemned to be hanged, 16. men and 4 women one of which women was the before mentioned person for Murthering her Bastard, and of the men, the Sadler that Killed the Bayly; and the

Broker before mentioned.

The Sadler carried himself very submissively and Christianly at his condemnation, declaring that he expected not life, and could not plead for it, but in respect he had been so little time in Prison, and that the time he had been there was taken up with visits by his friends, desired of the Court that they would grant some more than usual time before his Execution, to prepare for his Soul, to which the Court declared they would take into consideration, and so proceeded to pass judgment of death upon him.

There were in all 21 Persons burned in the hand, and about 9 more to be Transported.
