The Bedford Story - Davey Lewis

by Ned Frear

Davey Lewis by Ned Frear

In late 1815, a handsome stranger whose real name was Davey Lewis lost a back-room discussion with the sheriff, and was taken to court. He boasted that no jail could hold him, but he couldn't stay out of jail. Davey Lewis's life tells much about the mores and aspirations of his time. He was a man of boldness, invention, courage, audacity, but a man who couldn't resist temptation.
