Holy Shit. Henry Garnett is an ancester of mine.
Although it also makes me think that this = a lie. Mum and Grandma researched into this, and somewhere at home I have a book about him. He heard the confessions of the Gunpowder plotters and was hung, drawn, and quartered for not telling anyone.
wow. Hey, it’s not too far to doncaster. You could take a trip to see the family, as it were.
