Tomkins and Challoner, led to gallows, Holborn, London, 1643 (illustration) Featured 24 Aug 2012 Image

Tomkins and Challoner, led to gallows, Holborn, London, 1643 (illustration)

"Scanned directly from Old and New London - Its History, its people and its places, published by Cassell, Petter, Galpin & Co. 1878. Illustration of Tomkins and Challoner being led to the gallows. In the second year of the war between King and Parliament, the Royal successes at Bath, Bristol, and Cornwall, as well as the partial victory at Edgehill, had roused the party and chilled many adherents of the Puritans. The distrust of Pym and his friends soon broke out into a reactionary plot, in which Waller, the poet, was dangerously mixed up. The chief conspirators were Tomkins and Challoner, the former Waller's brother-in-law, a gentleman living in Holborn, near the end of Fetter Lane, and a secretary to the Commissioners of the Royal Revenues. Tomkins and Challoner were hung at the Holborn end of Fetter Lane in 1643."
