Until the 19th century, hangings were carried out on Westmount ; Jèrriais: Mont ès Pendus ) in Saint Helier. The last such execution was carried out on 3 October 1829, when Philippe Jolin was hanged for murder.
The following execution, that of François Bradley on 11 October 1866, was carried out in public outside the prison in Saint Helier. The law specified hanging in public until 1907. The next execution, therefore, that of Joseph Philip Le Brun on 12 August 1875, also took place under the same conditions. It was the last public hanging in the British Isles .
