Feb-13-20  Nosnibor: Don`t keep me hanging what was his first name ?
Feb-13-20  Nosnibor: Could anybody put their neck out to find my question on Pierpoint? The game in this database does not figure in Tim Harding`s tome on Blackburne

  Messiah: His name was Justin Pierpoint:

Feb-13-20  Nosnibor: <MissScarlett> You seem to be missing my pun. Albert Pierepoint was a public executioner and holds the record for hangings in England.
Feb-13-20  Nosnibor: <Messiah> According to the article you mention he was Reverend Edward Pierpoint and not Justin as stated by your good self.

  keypusher: <Nosnibor> I'm guessing that Pierrepoint benefitted from (i) war crimes (ii) poor pre-modern recordkeeping.
