SP9/251/213; account of an offender
who was hanged. The "Ordinary of Newgate" was the
prison chaplain (as we would now call him) of Newgate Prison.
He made extra money by publishing accounts of the "behaviour,
confessions and dying speeches" of those he accompanied
to the gallows at Tyburn. This source describes an offender
who was hanged, along with five others, at Tyburn, on 13th December,
Note what the "Ordinary"
is trying to do: get the accused to confess so that they would
be able to get into heaven.
