Return to article concerning Maidstone Prison

In this 28 year period 2,338 people were hanged, comprising 2243 men and 95 women. The average number of executions was 80 per year with a peak of 219 in 1801. Crimes against property still featured heavily in these lists, with burglary being the crime in 438 cases and housebreaking in a further 70. The move towards abolition of the so called "Bloody Code" during the later part of the period had begun and was reducing the number of executions.

Commencing in 1862 all executions were applied only to those convicted of murder. Abolition of public executions came into force pursuant to the Capital Punishment (Amendment) Act passed by Parliament on the 29th of May 1868. Accordingly, as at that time all executions were moved from Penenden Heath to Maidstone Gaol.

Spellings of names are taken from newspaper accounts and hand written court records. If you are searching for a particular name try any likely spelling e.g. Simonds, Simmonds, Symonds, et cetera.

With special thanks to Mr. Dave Mossop for providing the data and his help with this list.

Note: ** indicates that prisoner may have been reprieved or executed as no information is available pertaining to an execution of that individual.
