When I was selling your Hebburn books Barry, a lad called Peter Tallack a one time really good Greens bowls champion came for one and he was really keen on Local History. He seemed to know loads of Local History and was even testing my knowledge
. He intended to learn how to use a computer and get online but I havent heard from him since. He told me that a relative, maybe a GGGreat gran was a neighbour of Jobling and she played with his children. I think Peter said that Jobling's body was taken down from the Gibbet by friends and rowed out to sea and basically given a funeral at sea. There were no Piers there then.
