John Ball was a priest who the peasants freed from Maidstone Prison. He went preaching to the peasants. It was good to have a priest on their side - priests were important. Unfortunately, after the revolt, John Ball was hung, drawn and quartered on June 15th, and his parts were sent to four different towns, to be put on display.
