A very similar tale is told in 'John of Ditchford' on Steeleye Span's Bedlam Born CD. The notes say - Tim Harries adapted from 'A Lynching (1322)' by Eric Jenkins from his book Northampton Murder Tales (1998).

11th verse reads

'They took from him all he had
gave him sackcloth for to wear
and a wooden cross for him to hold
on the lonley road to Dover'
