About Robert Boys

Forcibly abducted the widowed Jane Boys from her father's residence on 8 June 1451; she "consented" to marry him on 16 June, and claimed it was of her own free will. Indictments were brought in 1452 and conflicting testimony was given, but so long as Jane maintained that this was an elopement, however bizarre it appeared to others, the case could not proceed.
