So many perils faced humanity at the beginning of the nineteenth century. From press-gangs to the pox-soaked bawds beckoning outside brothels. Only way to escape their attention was by hiding, fighting or running away. Furthermore it was always best to avoid gambling with card sharps whilst remembering that ubiquitous cheap gin would likely lead to addiction. And wherever possible steer clear of pickpockets, rapists, highwaymen and footpad bullies. There was a stark choice facing so many people. Work hard for little money and then suffer the early death of a pauper. Or turn to thieving and hang. Poverty drove many to crime. The wrong-doers far outnumbered those who craved peace and a safe life. In the midst of chaotic anarchy, a few strived to provide law or at least justice. On the Wirral they were led by Travis Lancelot, law enforcer.
