Hackstaple - thankyou for clearing that up. I was indeed referring to Sir John Popham, &  did think there was a discrepancy with the dates re him being LCJ & the date of death of Mary Q of Scots. Sir Walter Raleigh managed to wriggle out of his death sentence for a couple of years or so, but he finally got the chop after the death of Sir John Popham.

From what I have been able to find one of my direct ancestors was one of the men who killed Becket.  Wonder what life would have been like for ME if my english had all stayed there instead of coming to the "New World"
