JUDGE   JEFFREYS’   JAUNT

Everyone knows that in 1685, following the failed Monmouth Rebellion, Judge Jeffries, at the so-called Bloody Assizes, sentenced a number of persons connected with it in the most savage manner.  Cruelty is the picture that people have of him.  But there was a great deal more to him – hard drinking, for a start.  Dick Hamilton describes his visit to the Northern Circuit in 1684 – York, Newcastle and Carlisle – when he was welcomed with a 16-gun salute. It shows a fuller picture of his  character.

All welcome.
