Stand & Deliver- The Highwaywoman by 


Stand & Deliver fine art print available as a framed print, canvas print and poster.

Moll Cutpurse is the only highway women I’ve found any reference to although I’m sure there were more…probably too smart to get caught;)

Moll Cutpurse’s real name was Mary Firth, a bit of a tomboy, always ready for a rumble and happiest in the company of men.
Sources on her history are a little conflicting but she was a bit of a roguette and after pulling a big job on a Lord, bribed her way out of goal and eventually “the business” finding it safer to work as a fence…..a fascinating character from the early 1600’s.

Von kindly posted this wonderfully fitting poem
The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees,
The moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas,
The road was a ribbon of moonlight, over the purple moor,
And the highwayman came riding-
Riding-riding-

Thank you to Marcus Ranum for the beautiful model.
