This table shows different conviction and execution statistics from different parts of England from around the middle of the eighteenth century to the years when the Bloody Code was abolished. Note that the lowest percentages of executions are for horse theft. This does not coincide with the seriousness with which the courts were noted for treating such cases in the eighteenth century. These statistics stem from the latter half of the century and perhaps reflect the growing trend for courts to search out a secondary punishment, instead of the hanging.
