ROBIN HOOD (ROBIN OF LOCKSLEY/LOXLEY)

The Sloane Manuscript says Robin Hood was born in Locksley, Yorkshire which some say was in Nottinghamshire (there was a boundary dispute on Hallam Moors between Hathersage and Loxley) in the days of Henry II about the year 1160 but lived till the latter end of Richard I.’He was ‘so riotous that he lost or sold his patrimony (inheritance) and for debt became an outlaw. Then joining to him many stout fellows of like disposition amongst one called Little John who was principal or next to him, they hunted about Barnsdale Forest.’
