£200 REWARD – Red Bank Highwayman

I found this interesting bit of history while searching the web, this is a bit of text about the “THE SUN” Newspaper, from Thursday 13th November 1800.

This Issue features a prominent front page advertisement announcing a £200 REWARD for the arrest of the HIGHWAYMAN who robbed the WARRINGTON MAIL between WINWICK and RED BANK HILL. He pulled the post boy off his horse and made off with the mailbag. Nearby were found a pistol, cap, plate and feather suggesting that the robber belonged to the QUEENS OWN REGIMENT OF DRAGOONS ..

I will post further details on this later after I take delivery of, and read the paper.

If this is a subject which someone already knows details about, why not add the info into the website using the “comments” link below.
