A money question...?

I was watching the Tudors on Showtime and Thomas Cromwell made a comment "15 pounds for one stroke? That man earns a nice living." He was of course referring to the fee charged by the man who was to execute Anne Boleyn. This took place in 1536. What would the equivalent of 15 pounds in 1536 be in US dollars today?
