Lincolnshire Villains: Rogues, Rascals and Reprobates

by Douglas Wynn The History Press

In the past, the east shore of Lincolnshire?s long coastline was well adapted for smuggling and the rural quality of the county aided the transport and hiding of contraband goods. In addition to the pirates, coastal criminals and countryside rogues, there was also murder and mayhem aplenty in such cities as Lincoln, Grimsby, Boston and Stamford. Moreover, being near to the north/south routes from London meant that Lincolnshire was a haven for highwaymen and footpads ? even the infamous Dick Turpin had a Lincolnshire connection.

With exciting and dramatic tales featuring the worst of Lincolnshire?s villains, this book is sure to inform and fascinate everyone interested in Lincolnshire?s criminal past.


Douglas Wynn, a retired college lecturer, writes books on true crime and has given talks to numerous local societies and clubs.  For many years he was chairman of the Grimsby Writers? Circle and now lives near Louth where he leads a writing group for the Louth U3A.
