MarginaliaMarche.23.These. xiiii. daies (after the condemnation) once expired, they were the. xxiii. daye of this moneth of Marche fetched from Newgate, at foure of the clocke in the morninge, and so led through the city vnto Algate, wher they wer delyuered vnto the shiriefe of Essex, and ther being fast bounde in a cart, were shortelye after brought to theyr seueueral appoynted places of burning: that is to saye, Thomas Hygbed to Hornden on the hil, and Thomas Causton to Rayly (both in the countrie of Essex) where they did most constantly the. xxv. daye of the same moneth, seale this their faith with shedding of their blood by moste cruell fire, to the glorye of God, and great reioysing of the godlye. At which time most of the gentlemen in the shere were commaunded to be present, for feare (belike leaste they shoulde be taken from them.) Thus haue I shewed the apprehension, examination, confession, condempnation, and burning of these two godly and constant martyres of God, whose articles and answeres hereafter follow.
