Dick Turpin character jug modeled by David B. Biggs and produced by Royal Doulton of Burslem, England, between 1960-1981. Dick Turpin (1705-1739) is possibly the most notorious of English highwaymen. Born at the Bell Inn in Hempstead, Essex, England, this infamous King of the Road began work as a butcher. However, he soon turned to such crimes as cattle poaching, smuggling and home burglary. It is as a highwayman, though, that he is best remembered. With a mysterious mask to obscure his identity and his cry "Stand and Deliver" that caused fear with his victims. Turpin's activities on Hounslow Heath and in Epping Forest soon turned him into a legend. After accidentally shooting his partner, Tom King, Turpin made his legendary ride from London to York on his faithful steed, Black Bess. Dick Turpin was finally arrested for horse thieving, identified and hanged in 1739, at York Tyburn. Black Bess' head forms the handle of the jug. Along with this large size, a small size (D6535) and miniature size (D6542) were also produced.
