To his friends he was Henry de la Poer Beresford; to the public he was known as 'the Mad Marquis'.
In the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography he is described as 'reprobate and landowner'.
His misdeeds include fighting, stealing, being 'invited to leave' Oxford University, breaking windows, upsetting (literally) apple-carts, fighting duels and, last but not least, painting the heels of a parson's horse with aniseed and hunting him with bloodhounds.
He was notorious enough to have been suspected by some of being 'Spring Heeled Jack', the strange, semi-mythical figure of English folklore.
