Dick has looked at petitions arising from convictions at Yorkshire courts in the mid-19th century, with a York case study. This revealed events surrounding and following the conviction of Sarah Ann Hill, sentenced to death at York Assizes in 1851 for the murder of her new-born child.

The Clements Hall Local History Group have a new research project: Making ends meet on Nunnery Lane: revealing local poverty in the Victorian period. Their project will investigate poverty and hardship in the mid-19th century in a part of their area of York to the south of the City Walls, Nunnery Lane.
