Old Bailey Criminal Transcripts Now Online and Searchable

S. Weasel exults in the joys of "buggery and murder."

Her search for "sodomy:"

Gabriel Lawrence , was indicted for feloniously committing with Thomas Newton, aged 30 Years, the heinous and detestable Sin of Sodomy

...

William Griffin, was indicted for Committing Sodomy with Thomas Newton, May 10 . Thomas Newton thus depos'd. The Prisoner and Thomas Phillips , (who is since absconded,) were Lodgers for near 2 Years at Clap's House.

...

Thomas Wright , was indicted for committing Buggery with Thomas Newton. Jan 10 1724- 5. Thomas Newton thus depos'd. Last January 12 Month, the Prisoner had the Carnal Use of my Body at his own House, in Christophers Alley in Moor-fields...

...

William Brown was indicted for a Misdemeanour, in assaulting Thomas Newton, with an Intent to commit Sodomy with him

Thomas Newton? Dude, it's a rectum, not a clown-car.

It doesn't appear to be a gang-rape or anything. Seems like the guy just got pinched by the coppers and started ratting on his fellow "Sodomites."

Thomas Newton lodged at "Clap's House," a Place of Entertainment favored by Sodomites, and (it goes without saying) a "notorious Molly-House" (whatever that is).

Damn there's something fun about Olde-Timey English.

Oh by the way? One verdict and sentence of the above-accused read simply "Guilty. Death."

Day-um.

Thanks to jdub.
