    Kidnapping Laws in 1880's?

    Discussion in 'Research' started by capturedpotential, Dec 19, 2012.

    I'm attempting to write a screenplay that involves a kidnapping in 1880's London, England. I've googled laws surrounding kidnappings, or even kidnapping cases, but can't seem to find anything. Anyone have an idea what the repercussions would be for this, if any?
    Thanks in Advance!

    you can use the BL's reference section's online inquiry form to get relevant reference material and even get questions answered... i've done so for several things and found them very helpful...

    you're entirely welcome!... the US library of congress has a similar free service...

    for fee-based ones, google is quite good, may even have wrested 'the best' slot from lexis/nexis...
