Reverend Thomas Warren, the Anglican vicar of Tolpuddle’s St John the Evangelist church, used these collars to identify his dogs. Warren witnessed an agreement over wages between the Tolpuddle labourers and landowners during the 1830s. He then sided with James Frampton, the local landowner who was responsible for the martyrs being arrested.
