Simon Byrne was known to have killed a man buried in West Yard Whateley cemetery, who had gotten into a fight with him.

The one who he killed was given this epitaph;

Strong and athletic was my frame
Far from my native home I came
And bravely fought with Simon Byrne
Alas, but never to return.
Stranger take warning from my fate
Lest you should rue your case too late
If you have ever fought before
Determine now to fight no more.

Behind the scenesEdit

He was a boxer, and killed Alexander McKay during a fight on June 2, 1830. The epitaph in KQ4 is actually based on the one from Alexander McKay's gravestone in Hanslope Churchyard.
