This section is devoted to a most fascinating social document
which relates to several individuals in 18th century London.
In particular, the contents of the document make reference to one
George Allen, alias Powditch
who (intentionally or otherwise) made his mark in History
through committing several Crimes,
breaking free from various Gaols,
swearing at a Judge,
and generally having a negative attitude towards 'authority'.
His ultimate demise, like many of his fellow men during that period, was to be
'hung from the neck until he was dead'
