    A prosecution association was a mutual protection society when members of a local community entered into an agreement to prosecute, using subscription money, anyone committing a felony on the property of any member. During the period between about 1700 to 1850 75 associations have been identified in Cheshire, including that of Alsager. There may have been as many as 3-4000 in the country as a whole. The earliest association identified in England is the Stoke on Trent Association against Horse Stealing in 1694. In South East Cheshire fourteen associations have been identified as existing between Macclesfield and Audlem between 1750 and 1850 with others across the county border at Talke, Audley, Betley and Woore to name but a few. Each of these advertised at least annually in the papers of the day stating their aims and objects and giving details of their members names and the rewards paid for information leading to conviction.

    The talk is about a trial that took place in Liverpool in 1884. Two sisters were charged with the murder of Thomas Higgins, the husband of the younger sister. There were lots more killings as well which were referred to in evidence and clearly many other women involved as well. The method was arsenic and the motive life insurance. It was not confined to Liverpool, the scheme had been going on all over the country in the poor areas for decades but because the people who were dying were "not important" no one took any notice until this case hit the headlines and the government were forced into action.
