Does the murder of Earnshaw tell us anything, or help us at all?

It may suggest it has something to do with Earnshaw's church or something or somebody from the town. Earnshaw seemed to know his killer and he also knew Nigel and Francis were brothers.

this puts me back to the revenge angle and that it was - perhaps - tied to the Hellfire Club and its victims.

I can't think why Earnshaw could have been a threat to anyone. It still feels like a revenge killing. I thought it might be related to some sort of blackmail.

I believe it was revenge too.

I'm on the revenge side also. He knew the players but I don't see how anything he knew could have been considered a threat or enough of a thread to cause him to be killed. Might have been something he was an accidental witness to???

It didn't help me at all...! 😐
