Petitions lodged by convicts especially ones under the death sentance
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 00:26 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I would be most grateful if someone could help me to locate a petition, lodged on behalf of
a William Pinner sentenced to death on 2nd Jan 1837,  at the Old Bailey.His sentence was commuted to life and transported to Australia, but I would be interested in who spoke up for him.
Any help would be of great help.

Thanks Jan
