George Thomas was hung on 13th February 1894 for the murder of Mary Jane Jones. Thomas was only 25 years old and was an army reservist. He had been going out with Mary for several weeks even though she was ten years younger then he was. It was in fact Mary who decided to end the relationship but instead of telling him she tried to avoid him whenever possible. They were out walking on the 19 November and Thomas decided it was time that the relationship advanced to something more serious. When he met resistance he tried to force himself on her but she tried to push him away. A struggle followed and in a fit of rage he cut her throat. He gave himself up to the police and confessed all.
