The right to execute
Anyone left hanging from the guttering would indeed imagine themselves in the middle of a nightmare. Hanging by the neck until it caused death was the usual mode of punishment in England for a long time. In the Middle Ages, every town, abbey and nearly all the important manorial lords had the right of hanging. In fact, gallows could be seen almost everywhere.
Representatives of the church often possessed rights in respect to the gallows and its victims. William the Conqueror invested the Abbot of Battle Abbey with the authority to save the life of any malefactor he might find about to be executed and whose life he wished to spare.
In the days of Edward I, the Abbot of Peterborough set up a gallows at Collingham in Nottinghamshire and hanged a thief. This came to the notice of the Bishop of Lincoln who got in a right stew as he declared that the Abbot had usurped his rights since he held the liberty of the Wapentake of Collingham and the right to execute criminals. There was a lot of arguing and after an investigation it was decided that the Abbot was wrong and was ordered to take down his gallows. It probably seems extremely bizarre that men of such high office would argue over who was allowed to do executions until it’s mentioned that he would be entitled to the chattels of the condemned man.
