"On 18 January Surrey was beheaded on the scaffold at Tower Hill"

Tower Hill, situated north-west of the Tower of London and just outside the limits of the City of London, became an execution site, frequently for 'high-born' traitors. The  condemned included Anne Boleyn's brother George, convicted with Anne of high treason, Sir Thomas Moore and Henry, Earl of Surrey, the eldest son and heir of Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk.  His father escaped the same fate on this occasion thanks to the timely death of Henry VIII.  Both had been convicted of treason, but the Duke of Norfolk was later pardoned and had his lands and property restored by Mary I
