On August 1st, 1761, Robert King, was executed at the Tyburn without Micklegate Bar, for stealing two young cows or heifers. They were found in his possession, and though it appeared probable that he had bought them, the jury found him guilty. He was respectably connected, and much interest was used to save his life, but of no avail He resided at Todwick, near Rotherham. Before he was executed he showed great marks of penitence, and acknowledged himself guilty of the crime for which he suffered.
