The Incredible History of John Shepard 18th Century Burglar πŸ±β€πŸ‘€

Welcome you lovelies. Jack Sheppard otherwise known as “Honest Jack”, was a sneaky English thief and frequent prison escapee of early 18th-century London.

Coming from a poor family, with little money between them, he survived as well as he could, learning and working enough to become an apprentice carpenter. However, took to theft and burglary with only a year left of his training remaining…he could have been an amazing carpenter it seems.

Instead of making chairs, tables, and working in his chosen field…he was instead, arrested and imprisoned five times in 1724, and then escaped four times from prison. He was loved by the poorer folk, a sort of Robin Hood-esque personality, but his escape attempts ran out, after two years of running, and finally caught.

Now listeners, what you’re going to hear today is a rendition of these events from the Crime Classics Old Time Radio, titled The Incredible History of John Sheppard, aka Jack Sheppard. Enjoy!
