Stephen Watson - West Bradenham


“About ten days back a starling’s nest, with young ones, was taken out of the breast of Watson, who hangs on a gibbet on Bradenham Common, near Swaffham, for the murder of his wife, which was witnessed by hundreds of people as something very singular and extraordinary.”

This is the same Stephen Watson found guilty for the murder of his wife. See 'Find a grave'
