Quote From 1685

April 25, 2012 § Leave a comment

Richard Rumbold, a Republican executed in June 1685 at the Gallows Market Cross in Edinburgh – hanged, drawn and quartered after the Monmouth Rebellion, said this on the scaffold:

“I am sure there was no man born marked of God above another; for none comes into the world with a saddle on his back, neither any booted and spurred to ride him.’

h/t Pete Yeo and Tony Benn
