Busby's stoop chair
|The chair in Thirsk Museum|
Crime and curse
Busby was arrested, tried and condemned to death after he murdered his father-in-law Daniel Auty in 1702. The execution's site was said to be haunted by Busby's ghost.
In Episode 26 of Hetalia: Axis Powers, England monologues to himself that he will get revenge on America using "Busby's Chair". However, Russia sits in the chair instead, causing it to explode in a red aura.
