In 1207, King John created the Town of Liverpool, in no small part because of his dislike of the Earls of Chester and their port taxes. At the time King John re-allocated lands in the North West in his own favour from anglo saxon landowners, and raised revenue from his newly formed towns.
Huntington Hall has been in existence just outside Chester since the Domesday book, where its listed with a hall, holdings and slaves. This could theoretically have been Robin's home. In fact, the earliest literary reference, the fourteenth century poem Piers Plowman, mentions Robin Hood and Randulf of Chester in the same breath. Cheshire archers were world famous longbowmen from the 1200s. The main path to take taxes to the nearest Mersey crossing at Warrington from the new town of Liverpool in 1207 would have been up the hill and through the track leading into and beyond the heavily forested Toxteth Park. The path was known as Smithdown Lane. Robbing the taxes from the new town would have really pissed John off.
Calderstones has an ancient memorial known as Robin Hood's Stone.
Told you it was easy to make this shit up. While there are several reasons while this story is highly dubious on every count ( not least the fact I just made it up), every detail given above is actually true. Though I may have omitted other facts. And been very careful of some of the wordings.
The lesson. Don't believe all you read at face value. Particularly about ancient history and the creative use of circumstantial facts to 'prove' things. Except my book. Believe everything in my book.
