The Guardian: From witchcraft to cheese theft: archive sheds light on 200 years of crime. “From the tragic case of Cecilia Samuel, found guilty of drowning her newborn baby in a ditch in Wisbech, to William Sturns, accused of stealing three cheeses, 200 years of crimes in the diocese of Ely are being catalogued for the first time.” The archives are expected to be finished in September of next year.
