On 6 July 1535 Thomas More was beheaded. But don't spare any tears for him. From 1529 to 1532 More was chancellor of England and he persecuted Protestants. He was responsible for the deaths of several people. In 1530 a man named Thomas Hitton was burned at Maidstone. Thomas More called him 'the Devil's stinking martyr'.  www.localhistories.org/more
