On this day in 1565, in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, astrologer, astronomer, mathematician and magician, Edward Gresham, was born in Stainsford, Yorkshire.
Gresham is known for his treatise "Astrostereon" and his almanacs, but what's really interesting is his connection to a countess's annulment and a poisoning.

And on this day in 1556, in the reign of Queen Mary I, Sir Anthony Kingston, died at Cirencester. He was on his way to London to face charges that had been laid against him, and it's likely that he would have been executed.
