The pub name may allude to a change in the way in which the pub was run or owned at sometime in its past or maybe a reference to the religious persecutions in Tudor times - when Mary became queen in 1553 she tried to re-establish Catholisism and also created many Protestant martyrs, include many in Suffolk, who refused to renounce their new faith and were burnt at the stake; but in 1559 she died, and was succeeded to the throne by her half-sister Elizabeth who re-established the protestant faith and subsequently persecuted Catholics.
