Purple Foxx BS: Friar Tuck (71* d) RE: BS: Friar Tuck 04 Apr 06

Much the Miller's son was one of only 3 accomplices of Robin mentioned in the Gest.
The other 2 were Little John & Will Scarlock.
The name Scarlock means Lockbreaker.
Interestingly,A man of this name was expelled from St Mary's Priory in York in 1287.
St Mary's Priory also figures prominently in the Gest.
This raises the intriguing possibility that Will Scarlock & Friar Tuck were in fact one & the same person.
If so
