Thomas Paine died at Greenwich, New York in 1809 and was buried on his estate at New Rochelle. The body was disintered by William Cobbett in Sept. 1819, who rightly
considered that such an important Englishman, author of “The Rights of Man” and “The Age Reason” should be returned to British soil. His remains were taken back to England by Cobbett in Nov. 1819, and kept by him on his mantel piece at Normandy Farm, near Farnham until his death in 1835.
