Another trawl through the records of dastardly deeds, this time around Yorkshire, taking in the whole of the boundaries of the ancient West Riding, which stretched as far up as Sedbrough in the north-west, just beyond Todmorden in the west, north to Kirkby Malzeard and east to Selby and Goole. Join the Dyon, Stanton and Thornton families if you dare and find out who killed which other member of their family. When the course of true love fails to run smoothly, the result can often be tragic, as it was in the case of star crossed lovers in Leeds and Wakefield or between man and wife as in cases in Doncaster, Thurlstone and Heckmondwike. Nor were children ignored by the law, being both victims and, quite often, perpetrators of foul deeds. Whatever you find in today’s newspapers, you’ll find a parallel here – knife crimes, drink-related crimes, bank robberies and mail robberies, riots and terrorism. There’s nothing new under the sun and these tales prove it.
