    Tom of the Roads didn't have a last name - for who his father was he had no knowledge of, but only dark suspicions, like his three friends Joe,Will, and the gypsy Puglioni. But even though they did not know their fathers, it could be said that truer friends the well-bred never had. For the three friends, Joe, Will, and the gypsy Puglioni, braved not only the wrath of the king's men, but also whatever one may come face-to-face with in the darkness a little after midnight about the gallows tree where hung Tom, to free his soul, and give him a "proper burial".
