Notorious highwayman Dick Turpin is executed by hanging (aged 33) at Knavesmire, York, England, UK. Somewhat romanticised accounts of Turpin's life will inspire several poems and folk songs including Turpin's Rant, but to hear a more modern re-telling, there's The Ballad Of Dick Turpin, recorded by Freddie And The Dreamers in 1965.
