In Nettleham churchyard is the grave of Thomas Gardiner, the unfortunate murder victim of two villainous brothers. The stone reads "THO.GARDINER post boy of Lincoln, barbarously murdered by Isaac & Tho.Hallam, Jan 3 1732, aged 19"

Thomas and Isaac Hallam had murdered a Mr.Wright near Middle Rasen on January 2nd 1732 and murdered Thomas Gardiner the following night in Nettleham South Field, near a place called Bunker's Hill.

The Hallam brothers were soon caught and found guilty of the murder. Isaac was hanged in irons at Nettleham Field in March 1732 where his brother Thomas fainted at the sight, but he was taken away and hanged at Middle Rasen.
