Biographies

Richard kingsland Way was just a lad trying to pull a fast one. He committed fraud here in Barnstaple North Devon. Richard did odd jobs at a local mansion house, Tawstock Court in the village he came from. He went into town saying he was a stable boy there and had been sent because a guest was coming at short notice. He obtained 2lbs of candles, 1lb of tea, a piece of interlined bacon, 3lb of lump sugar and 2lb currants, judging by the amount of sugar and currants he either had a sweet tooth or was going to sell them on. For that he paid a heavy price. By all accounts he was popular with the ladies back home. I hope he found love in Australia.
