In the 16th Century James Deptford owed a great deal in financial debts and asked his brother Robert -- then the Duke of Deptford -- to use some of the family funds to pay off what he owed, so that he would not be sent to debtors' prison. When Robert refused, James killed him in his sleep. Caught and found guilty of murder, James was sent to the Tower of London where he was beheaded for his crimes. Following his death, Deptford Castle developed a legend stating that the headless ghost of James roamed the halls of the castle.
