On this day in Tudor history, 16th July 1546, in the reign of King Henry VIII, Protestant martyrs Anne Askew, John Lascelles, John Adams and Nicholas Belenian were burned at the stake at Smithfield in London for heresy.

Poor Anne had been illegally racked, so special provision had to be made for her execution.

In today's talk, Claire Ridgway, founder of the Tudor Society, gives an account of the ends of these courageous people, along with some trivia about one of them.
