William Russell, Lord Russell added to project.

That's a terrific list, Michael. I think I like a chronological grouping - or even better, by monarch?

I take it if your list has an asterisk mark (*) following it's already in the project.

So you need to break down for me to add profiles NOT in the project; hopefully with other's help. And can most easily find the Geni link by using google.

yes.. i can do that... right now i am taking advantage of the free until sept 3 offer on my tree.. the wiki at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_who_were_beheaded#England
do the others know about it? if they want to help speed things up... I do think a monarch or chronological grouping idea would be good but how do we handle the odd ones like the rye plotters do we file them under the king at that time? they have a list until this method (ax) was abolished in 1817 so this might be a long project i am not sure how long you want it to go on..

Hi Michael

1) by all means please prioritize adding to your tree, just a word of caution - be sure and check 1st the profile doesn't already exist

2) I'd go with "when" executed for the monarch

3) 1817 sounds like an excellent cut off date, good one again

4) be patient - more collaborators will join in time. The better organized and visually appealing the project presentation "overview," the more will notice and help. And once that's done to satisfaction we can "invite" more collaborators / followers.

some of those who were ordered excuted were ordered by members of Parliament and not by king or queen i am just going to add those in with who ever was the monarch at that time.
also a lot of the times i am finding the write up allready done for me.. and most of the time it needs no changes as it is well done.
right now i'm looking at people excuted durring the Interregnum period 1645-1660 (do i put charles the first when prompted or charles the 2?

Michael

Simon Sudbury, Archbishop of Canterbury done
as he is a mp i can't add to the about field and there is nothing there Jason Wills? how about adding The son of Nigel Theobald, Sudbury (as he later became known) was born at Sudbury in Suffolk, studied at the University of Paris, and became one of the chaplains of Pope Innocent VI,[2] one of the Avignon popes, who in 1356 sent him on a mission to Edward III of England.
In 1361 Sudbury was made Chancellor of Salisbury[2] and in October that year the pope provided him to be Bishop of London, Sudbury's consecration occurring on 20 March 1362.[3] He was soon serving Edward III as an ambassador and in other ways. On 4 May 1375 he succeeded William Whittlesey as archbishop of Canterbury,[4] and during the rest of his life was a partisan of John of Gaunt.
In July 1377, following the death of Edward III in June, Sudbury crowned the new king, Richard II at Westminster Abbey, and in 1378 John Wycliffe appeared before him at Lambeth, but he only undertook proceedings against the reformer under great pressure.
In January 1380, Sudbury became Lord Chancellor of England,[5] and the insurgent peasants regarded him as one of the principal authors of their woes. Having released John Ball from his prison at Maidstone, the Kentish insurgents attacked and damaged the archbishop's property at Canterbury and Lambeth; then, rushing into the Tower of London, they seized the archbishop himself. So unpopular was Sudbury that guards simply allowed the rebels through the gates.
[edit]Death
Sudbury was dragged to Tower Hill and, on 14 June 1381,[4] was beheaded. His body was afterwards buried in Canterbury Cathedral, though his head (after being taken down from London Bridge) is still kept at the church of St Gregory at Sudbury in Suffolk, which Sudbury had partly rebuilt.[2] With his brother, John of Chertsey, he also founded a college in Sudbury; he also did some building at Canterbury. His father was Nigel Theobald, and he is sometimes called Simon Theobald or Tybald.from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Sudbury

He's "fun." I would want to find a family tree and it may be a lot of data entry. Maybe in a few weeks.
