What’s your family dirty secret?

The Old Bailey archive have been available online for a while now. I wish I had an English name just to see what relatives have been up to since the year 1674.

There is also something interesting about seeing the punishments for criminial acts a couple of centuries ago. You didn’t want to mess with the law at that time, that’s for sure.

You can search by crimes and type of punishments. Which is a bit macabre but strangely addictive. Like ‘drawn and quartered” or the classic pillory.

Have a bit of fun and type your name in.
