At our Assizes at Horsham which ended on last Wednesday evening, 23 prisoners were tried, eleven of whom were capitally convicted, and received sentence of death. [Including] William Magwick, 43, and William Davis, 34, for wilfully slaughtering and feloniously stealing, on the grounds of Mr Ellman of Glynde, a valuable ram, the property of Sir John Sebright.
All the capital convicts were reprieved before the Judges left the town, except Simon Johnson, who is left for execution.
