No Ordinary Convict - A Welshman Called Rebecca
 
(0 reviews)  

The Rebecca Riots took place in Wales between 1839 and 1844 to protest primarily about excessive tolls imposed on travel across the Welsh countryside.

Each protest was led by a young man disguised as a woman, face blackened, who was called Rebecca. John Hughes was a Rebecca - he was caught red-handed leading an attack to demolish a toll gate and tollhouse and subsequently transported as a convict to Van Diemen's Land.
