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 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-
Thank you to Marcus Ranum for the beautiful model.
