Newgate prison history is available at the Capital Punishments website. Creators of the site have also compiled lists of executions at Newgate from 1783 to 1799, 1800 to 1836, and 1837 to 1902.

Executions

Many Londoners found guilty of capital crimes at the Old Bailey Sessions were hanged at Tyburn, although it was possible to be reprieved. A list of executions at Tyburn 1695-1783 is available online.

A list of executions at the Tower of London from 1388 to 1941 is also available online.

Felons found guilty of crimes at sea were put to death at Execution Dock. A list of executions there from 1735 to 1830 is available online.
