Pamela Southworth Richard Kay Publications

A fascinating account of Robert Delaney, who seems to be the first person to have been given the name of cat-burglar. 

A bigamist, deserter, thief and con man he would don monocle, top hat and dinner jacket and a polished manner which enabled him, at times, to pass himself off as the gentleman he certainly was not! 

His connection with Swineshead seems to have begun when he married a wealthy widow, whose wealth however soon disappeared.  He also acquired another ‘wife’ and other ‘wealth’ which however just as rapidly disappeared.
