What! The answer for Rich wasn't Richie?

I don't think you can have two Burtons. I clicked the wrong one apparently, and got it wrong even though I knew the answer.

It doesn't matter which Burton you choose.

Fun quiz but I have a slight problem with the dick turpin clue. Turpin was a real man who was indeed hanged at york in 1739 but black bess is a fictional horse invented by willian ainsworth in his novel rockwood. Not sure you should conflate fact and fiction like that, it would be like a guess the presidents quiz where the clue for lincoln mentions he killed vampires.

Thanks, didn't know Black Bess was fictional, have removed.
