M.L Bousfield shares with us the facts and evidence surrounding the hanging of William Bousfield in the mid-nineteenth century. Sentenced to death for the alleged murder of his wife and three children, William Bousfield's public execution became regarded as a public disgrace, a blot on the judicial landscape. Despite being under pressure to support his growing family, Bousfield was often absent from home - leaving his wife to run their business single-handedly. He had got it into his head that she had become overfamiliar with the customers. Was this the chief motive behind the murders? It seemed as if William had finally cracked when in the early hours of Sunday 3rd February 1856, his wife and three children were found dead at the family home. A disturbing scene was discovered after William handed himself in to Bow Street police station claiming he had killed his wife - her remains and those of her children being found in the back parlour of No. 4 Portland street.
