William Dodd (1729 - 1777) was an English Anglican clergyman who was nicknamed the 'Macaroni Parson'. He dabbled in forgery in an effort to clear his debts, was caught, convicted, and despite a public campaign for a Royal pardon became the last person to be hanged at Tyburn for forgery. A plate from 'The Criminal Recorder; or, Biographical Sketches of Notorious Public Characters', printed and published by James Cundee, Ivy Lane, London.
