All England Crime & Punishment

Do you have a Black Sheep in your family? If you do, then many congratulations! You can find out so much about ancestors who overstepped the mark and broke the law.

Back in the 12th to 15th centuries, agreements were reached as to the ownership of lands following legal disputes. These are recorded in the “Feet of Fines” and are available here.

You may have an ancestor who had his wicked way with a girl and then ran off rather than marry her. Bastardy or Affiliation Orders can help you to track him down. Some Coroner’s Inquests escaped being destroyed and are also offered by our suppliers, as are books containing photographs and records of some felons.

The Newgate Calendar is a fascinating read that covers the crimes of notorious people in the 18th and 19th centuries, their convictions and executions. Was your ancestor one of them?

The Criminal Register Index will provide you with the name of your Black Sheep as well as aliases, details of the court where they were tried, the offences that they were charged with and the outcome. Sentence or acquittal – what will it be?
