led the Rising of the North and was executed for treason. He was later beatified by the Catholic Church. After the Rising of the North failed, Thomas fled to Scotland, where he was captured by the Earl of Morton, one of the leading Scottish nobles. After three years, he was sold to the English Government for two thousand pounds. He was conducted to York and on 22 August 1572 was beheaded at a public execution, refusing an offer to save his life by renouncing Catholicism. His headless body was buried at the now demolished St Crux church in York.
