Crime in 17th Century Oldham and District

Family history. At Oldham Library , Greaves Street, OL1 1AL, Oldham. United Kingdom.

The records of crime in the 17th C are fascinating, giving insights into lives and lifestyles as well as the cases themselves. This talk uses original court records to look at crime and misdemeanour in the Oldham area and elsewhere in SE Lancashire during the Stuart period.  One thing is certain – human nature never changes.

By Dr Alan Crosby.
