1893 Murder of James Wyndham (72) Oakridge, near Stroud Gloucestershire

Execution of Frederick Wyndham aged 45 years - Hanged by John Billington & William Warbrick
H.M. Prision Gloucester Thursday 21st December 1893
Shortly after daybreak this morning and long ere thousands of those who for the last few weeks have been interested in the pending fate of Frederick Wyndham, sentenced to death by Mr. Justice Cave at Gloucester Assize for the murder of his aged father at Oakridge on October 9th last, had risen from their nights rest, the closing scene in the painful affair was enacted within the precincts of H. M. Prison Gloucester, the parricide paying the last penalty of his crime at the hands of the Public Hangman.
It is doubtful if any other case in the West of England had excited more interest. The story of the crime is as follows:— James Wyndham, the murdered man, was a farmer living at Frampton Place, a farm not far from the Great Western main line between Gloucester and London and near the Sapperton Tunnel. His wife — the mother of the prisoner — and his brothers and sisters had died some two or three years before and he seemed to have taken into his house as a housekeeper, a married woman of the name 'Virtue Mills', who was thought by the prisoner to have overridden his father’s affection for his own family.
At the time of the alleged murder the prisoner was employed as a baliff to Mr. William David Farrar, Coal Merchant at Stroud who also farmed at the Abby Farm, close to town. The prisoner had arranged with Mr. Farrar that they should meet at Stroud and drive over to his father’s place for some shooting on October 19th. Accompanied by Mr. Farrar’s brother they drove to Bisley where they stopped at the New Inn where Susan Wyndham, sister of the prisoner, was staying.
They had some refreshment with the prisoner’s sister; he, (the prisoner), then had a conversation with Susan in which it appeared that reference was made to a circumstance which occurred some little time before in which the father had attempted to drive over his daughter. It would appear a lawyer’s letter was sent to the father following that incident, and after this conversation the prisoner appeared to be considerably irritated with his father. The group then drove on towards Bisley and stopped for more refreshment at the Butchers Arms, Oakridge.
Leaving their trap at the Inn they went on the land of the prisoner’s father and saw James Wyndham with some of his men digging potatoes. They walked across to where his father was, but the prisoner did not seem inclined to speak with him. After a short while he did engage his father in conversation who then accused him of being drunk, to which the prisoner replied he was not. The prisoner’s friends felt at this time the prisoner and his father were coming to blows, so they got between them and escorted the prisoner out of the field.
The father opened the gate and they passed through; the prisoner went back and further words passed between them with reference to Mrs. Mills. As his father came towards him, the prisoner said 'I will shoot the bastard' and thereupon he raised the gun to his shoulder and fired. He discharged the gun within a foot or two of his father, shooting him first in the neck, inflicting such a wound as in itself would have been enough to cause instantaneous death. The father did not fall so the prisoner shot him again in the chest inflicting a second wound, which in itself must have been fatal.
He then got into the trap with his friends and asked to be driven to where his sister was staying before giving himself up. He met his sister and told her he had murdered his father for her sake and expressed his willingness to die for her. He then gave himself up to the police.
Wyndham, who throughout his trial had been seated, was now motioned to stand up, which he did briskly. The Clerk of the Arraigns then put the usual question to the prisoner; his reply to the query as to what he had to say why judgement to die according to law should not be given, being the startling one of 'I should like to kill the woman, Sir'. And almost deathly silence, his Lordship Usher passed behind the Judges chair and produced the black cap, prisoner then exclaimed 'She was the cause of it all'. And his Lordship then passed the sentence of death, as follows:— 'Frederick Wyndham, you have been found guilty on the very clearest of evidence of the murder of your father and if the Jury had found any other verdict they would have been manifestly false to the oaths which they have taken and false in their duty to all'. Prisoner— 'Quite right, my Lord'.
'Whatever may have been The merits of the dispute between you and your sister on the one hand, and your father on the other, I know not. It is not for me, of course, to judge between you and whatever the conduct of your father may have been; it does not justify you or excuse you in taking the life of a 72 year old man'. His Lordship continued, 'The sentence of the Court is
Houses near the Alhambra circuit wall, Granada
The Alhambra (Arabic: Al-?amra' , literally the red one), the complete form of which was Al-Qal‘at al-?amra’ the red fortress), is a palace and fortress complex constructed during the mid 14th century by the Moorish rulers of the Emirate of Granada in Al-Andalus, occupying the top of the hill of the Assabica on the southeastern border of the city of Granada in the Autonomous Community of Andalusia.
The Alhambra's Moorish palaces were built for the last Muslim Emirs in Spain and its court, of the Nasrid dynasty. After the Reconquista (reconquest) by the Reyes Catolicos (Catholic Monarchs) in 1492, some portions were used by the Christian rulers. The Palace of Charles V, built by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor in 1527, was inserted in the Alhambra within the Nasrid fortifications. After being allowed to fall into disrepair for centuries, the Alhambra was discovered in the 19th century by European scholars and travelers, with restorations commencing. It is now one of Spain's major tourist attractions, exhibiting the country's most significant and well known Islamic architecture, together with 16th-century and later Christian building and garden interventions. The Alhambra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the inspiration for many songs and stories.

Moorish poets described it as a pearl set in emeralds,in allusion to the colour of its buildings and the woods around them. The palace complex was designed with the mountainous site in mind and many forms of technology were considered. The park (Alameda de la Alhambra), which is overgrown with wildflowers and grass in the spring, was planted by the Moors with roses, oranges and myrtles; its most characteristic feature, however, is the dense wood of English elms brought by the Duke of Wellington in 1812. The park has a multitude of nightingales and is usually filled with the sound of running water from several fountains and cascades. These are supplied through a conduit 8 km (5 miles) long, which is connected with the Darro at the monastery of Jesus del Valle, above Granada.
In spite of the long neglect, willful vandalism and sometimes ill-judged restoration which the Alhambra has endured, it remains an atypical example of Muslim art in its final European stages, relatively uninfluenced by the direct Byzantine influences found in the Mezquita of Cordoba. The majority of the palace buildings are quadrangular in plan, with all the rooms opening on to a central court; and the whole reached its present size simply by the gradual addition of new quadrangles, designed on the same principle, though varying in dimensions, and connected with each other by smaller rooms and passages. The Alhambra was extended by the different Muslim rulers who lived in the complex. However, each new section that was added followed the consistent theme of paradise on earth. Column arcades, fountains with running water, and reflecting pools were used to add to the aesthetic and functional complexity. In every case, the exterior was left plain and austere. Sun and wind were freely admitted. Blue, red and a golden yellow, all somewhat faded through lapse of time and exposure, are the colors chiefly employed.
The decoration consists, as a rule, of stiff, conventional foliage, Arabic inscriptions, and geometrical patterns wrought into arabesques. Painted tiles are largely used as panelling for the walls. The palace complex is designed in the Mudejar, style which is characteristic of western elements reinterpreted into Islamic forms and widely popular during the Reconquista, the reconquest of the Iberian Peninsula from the Muslims by the Christian kingdoms.
The Alhambra did not have a master plan for the total site design, so its overall layout is not orthogonal or organized. As a result of the site's many construction phases: from the original 9th century citadel, through the 14th century Muslim palaces, to the 16th century palace of Charles V; some buildings are at odd positioning to each other. The terrace or plateau where the Alhambra sits measures about 740 metres (2,430 ft) in length by 205 metres (670 ft) at its greatest width. It extends from west-northwest to east-southeast and covers an area of about 142,000 square metres (1,530,000 sq ft). The Alhambra's most westerly feature is the alcazaba (citadel), a strongly fortified position. The rest of the plateau comprises a number of Moorish palaces, enclosed by a fortified wall, with thirteen towers, some defensive and some providing vistas for the inhabitants. The river Darro passes through a ravine on the north and divides the plateau from the Albaicin district of Granada. Similarly, the Assabica valley, containing the Alhambra Park on the west and south, and, beyond this valley, the almost parallel ridge of Monte Mauror, separate it from the Antequeruela district. Another ravine separates it from the Generalife.
