John Thurtell, born December 21, 1794, in England, and hanged January 9, 1824, at Hertford, England, is the "black sheep" of the Thurtell family. He was the son of Thomas Thurtell, the Mayor of Norwich, Norfolk, England, and Susanna Browne Thurtell. The extensive publicity regarding his crime, trial, and hanging is undoubtedly why many Thurtells moved to America, South Africa, Australia, and some even used the last name Turner for a while, while others changed the family name to Murray.
