Was the highwayman as financially supportive a lover as certain breeds of writer will have you believe?
Dashing, brave, dangerous and chivalric, the highwayman has often featured in those cheap paperback romances that some are more inclined to read. But I wouldn’t rely on your noble criminal to support you – his earnings were unreliable and inconsistent. They could range from the lavish jewels, valuables and thousands of pounds from the rich and wealthy, to a few pence from poor and simple travellers such as clergymen.
