One day in 1702 Daniel went to Busby’s home where he sat on Busby’s favorite chair. Both got into an argument about as Daniel didn’t wanted his daughter to stay with Busby as he was a drunkard man. During their argument Busby was very angry with Daniel not because of the topic of his wife but because he sat on his favorite chair he later killed his father in law.
He was found guilty and was ordered to be executed. However, before being executed he cursed that anyone who will sit on his chair will die. He was gibbeted as a punishment at Sandhutton.
