JOHN TYLER (1790-1862), tenth president of the United States, was born at Greenway, Charles City county, Virginia, on the 29th of March 1790.
Its high tower has four stages, each adorned with grotesques; and Greenway's chapel, built in 1517 by John Greenway, a wool merchant of Tiverton, is ornamented with figures minutely carved in stone.
Of the priests involved, Garnet was tried and executed, while Greenway and Gerard succeeded in escaping.
A few days later, according to Garnet, the Jesuit, Oswald Tesemond, known as Greenway, informed him of the whole plot " by way of confession," when, as he declares, he expressed horror at the design and urged Green way to do his utmost to prevent its execution.
Subsequently, after his trial, Garnet said he " could not certainly affirm " that Greenway intended to relate the matter to him in confession.
