23 January 1822 – Henry Thompson and Richard Jago

Forger Henry Thompson was sent to the gallows on the same day as the light-fingered Richard Jago.

Richard Jago was hanged at Newgate Prison in London, after he was convicted for burglary.

He was strung up alongside Henry Thompson who was done for forgery. This crime was seen as a form of treason in those days, because it was tantamount to robbing the Crown.
