Robin Hood is part of our heritage, but we are all still guessing who he might have been and when he was alive.
There are a few bits of information, which still don't prove very much.
I have been trying to uncover anything which may give some clues and have come up with a few facts that surround a particular person.
Has anyone got any ideas or thoughts about our Robin Hood, which you might like to share with us.

Looking forward to your comments! smile

Now... this is very interesting Granny, about 20 years ago my mum had her family tree done, i really dont know much more than im about to tell you but apparently my mums family the Corrigans were related to Robert The Earl of Huntington, now i know its not proven that he was Robin Hood but most places suggest that he was! Sorry i cant give you any more information on this, im just going on what i was told 20 years ago, the family tree was actually shown in Earlston Library, we actually had a good laugh at it at the time she told us.....

Charing Cross used to be the Arena, I think it now depends on when you go up there.

Apologies to granny for taking it further off topic, but a little devilish voice in my head kept saying "do it!do it!"

There'll be none of this nancy stuff with swords, tridents and nets.
I suggest the really hard stuff like Handbags at 10 paces, peashooters at 50 yards,conkers at 5 paces and tiddlywinks to name a few.

Taken from Wikipedia

[Robin Hood's] death is stated by Ritson to have taken place on the 18th of November, 1247, about the 87th year of his age; but according to the following inscription found among the papers of the Dean of York...the death occurred a month later. In this inscription, which bears evidence of high antiquity, Robin Hood is described as Earl of Huntington - his claim to which title has been as hotly contested as any disputed peerage upon record.

Hear undernead dis laitl stean
Lais Robert Earl of Huntingun
Near arcir der as hie sa geud
An pipl kauld im Robin Heud
Sic utlaws as hi an is men
Vil England nivr si agen.
Obiit 24 Kal Dekembris 1247

This inscription also appears on a grave in the grounds of Kirklees Priory near Kirklees Hall

As you say ..long live Robin Hood. Thought you might be interested to see that bit of information but I have a different theory.
I think Robin Hood was William Wallace.
Now everyone can shout and say 'rubbish' but I am not on my own. My reasons will all be revealed at a later date.

Derekdwc, I don't mind what you post, it's all a bit of fun and changing the topic slightly, can sometimes add to the whole experience! How about that?

Since the mid 13th century the name 'Robehod' or Robin Hood was used to describe any man who had been outlawed. For that reason, many indivuals have been associated with the name.

Personally, I like the idea that (like King Arthur) he is myth made manifest, and has more to do with pagan ideas of the Green Man rather than an real historical person.
