Crime & Punishment in Yeovil

Yeovil historian and author Bob Osborn has spent years researching the history of Yeovil. This new book uncovers an intriguing history of crimes committed and the often extreme punishments meted out throughout a period of over 900 years, and contains a wealth of cases derived chiefly from contemporary sources.
   Of course, just like every other town in England, crimes have always been committed in Yeovil. While many offences, such as murder, assault, robbery and drunkenness remain constant across the centuries, each period has crimes specific to that time; for example highway robbery, rioting, dueling, disorderly alehouses, infanticide, baby farming, and so on. There is even the case of Mary Hamilton who "pretending herself a man" married fourteen women across Somerset!
   This engrossing book provides a fascinating insight into the darker aspects of Yeovil throughout history.
