Interesting Criminal Stuff.

Hi,

.

Just a quick one for you.

.

Thousands of criminal and prison records have been released today, along with mugshots etc, on the site ancestry.co.uk.

.

There are court records, prison hulk lists and criminal biographies.

.

The Victorians punished the most minor of crimes with an extremely heavy hand, and seemed to show little consideration for the sex or the age of the people found guilty and being sentanced.

.

It is all fascinating stuff, as were the 1904 pub ASBO’s in Birmingham posted previously.

.

Handy for family researchers though….all those black sheep!
