On this day in Tudor history, 27th June 1497, Thomas Flamank and Michael Joseph (known as Michael an Gof, or Michael the blacksmith), two of the chief commanders of the Cornish rebels, were hanged, drawn and quartered at Tyburn.
The Cornish Rebellion of 1497 had been brought to an end on 17th June, when Henry VII's forces defeated the rebels at the Battle of Blackheath, which is also known as the Battle of Deptford Bridge.
You can find out more about the battle and rebellion in my "on this day in Tudor history" video from 17th June:
In 1997 the London Cornish Association and the Cornish Gorsedd erected a plaque on the north side of Blackheath common in memory of Flamank and Joseph. It reads:
"In memory of Michael Joseph the Smith and Thomas Flamank
Leaders of the Cornish who marched to
London. They were defeated here and suffered
execution at Tyburn 27th June 1497.
They shall have a name perpetual and fame
permanent and immortal."
