Justice John Bradshaw (1602-1659) chief judge in the trial of Charles I, who pronounced the death sentence on the King. Bradshaw was buried in Westminster Abbey, but after the Restoration of Charles II he was pronounced a 'regicide', and his remains were dug-up and symbolically hanged in 1660. He may have signed Charles I death warrant at Walton Manor House.
