Yorkshire Castle Prison Records Online

York Castle Prison

 

A great website giving lots of background information about York Castle Prison and of interest to genealogists is the database of criminals who had spent time there. I understand that further databases are to be added in due course, amongst them will be insolvent debtors.

Worth a look even if you don’t have anyone who might have been an inmate.
