Execution Broadside of Henry Horler, for the murder of his wife Ann Horler, on 17th November 1852, at Bishopsgate. 

Ann Horler's mother, Ann Rogers, had come to take Mrs Horler away the night before this murder was discovered as she had heard that her daughter had been abused by the condemned. Henry Horler insisted his wife would not go with Mrs Rogers that night, but that she should return in the morning for her. The next morning Ann Horler was found dead.
