Richard Wyche, Vicar of Deptford
Person Male Died 17/6/1440
Lollard heretic. Vicar of Harmondsworth Middlesex and of St Nicholas Deptford. He followed the Lollard doctrine which the authorities opposed and so he was burnt at the stake on Tower Hill for heresy. Another man, Roger Norman, possibly his servant, was burnt at the same time for the same crime. A cult grew up around Wyche after his death which the authorities had great trouble quelling.
