he is a descendent of convicts hanged at the notorious Salem witch
trials of 1692.

has had his family history scrutinised by American researchers
studying the history of Salem witches. Expert David Nelson says, "I
have discovered concrete proof of a link between Tom and some of
those who were executed. He is a distant relative of John Proctor -
who was hanged on August 19, 1692.
