18 August 1810 – Richard Peare and James Sweeney

Two lads got their comeuppance after they lost their lives for killing another man.

There was a double execution after Richard Peare and James Sweeney were strung up for murder.

They’d teamed up to bump off John Bolding and they were found guilty of their crime and hanged at Moulsham Gaol in Essex.
