Nothing to do with your direct family I'm sure, but.... I was researching my English side last week and found a story about a highwayman. My relative, an Isaac Blagden from Market Lavington Wiltshire, had a nephew (unknown link) called Thomas Boulter. He, Thomas Boulter, was convicted of highway robbery and hanged in August 1778.
If you want to know the rest of the story let me know.
