a snippet from history..........

Blessed THOMAS PLUMTREE, Rector of Stubton (c1560) 

Blessed Thomas Plumtree - Martyr



BORN in the Diocese of Lincoln, a scholar of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, in 1546, he was made Rector of Stubton in his native county of Lincolnshire.

He resigned his benefice on the change of religion under Queen Elizabeth, and became a schoolmaster at Lincoln, but was obliged to resign the post on account of his faith.

However, it is as chief chaplain and priest of the 'Army of the Northern Rising' (1569) that he won the martyr's palm. 'His voice seems to have been like the Baptist's and to have stirred high and low alike'. His call to abandon heresy and to rally to the standard of the faith ran through the northern counties, and hundreds came in response to his summons.

He appears to have been celebrant of the Mass in Durham Cathedral immediately preceding F. Holmes' sermon, and the public Absolution which followed.

Upon his capture, after the failure of 'the Rising', he was singled out as a notable example of the priests who had officiated.

In the market-place at Durham he was offered his life, if he would embrace heresy, but he refused, and was hanged on the gibbet, drawn and quartered on 4th February 1570, and was buried in the market-place.
