The Death of Jack Cade


12th July 1450 



  In 1450, a proclamation was issued offering 1000 marks to any person who could capture Jack Cade dead or alive, it did not take long, Cade was eventually found hiding in a garden in Sussex, by one Alexander Eden/Iden. 

Cade may have died in the scuffle, but he was dead by the time he was transported in a cart on his way to London. Eden got his reward and Cade, according to the authorities, got his.
