Times is tough and things is hard, and God knows, it is tough for a simple man to make an honest living.

So, where do you stand?

By the way are there any Percy's still in Northumberland?
Apart from the Duke & Dutchess you mean? Yeah, one or two. Mostly not called Percy. Its a silly name and has too many streets, parks, areas named after it. We mostly call ourselves Smith. Or Arbuthnot. But we're still around the place. Waiting for the call.

Itching to get back to Reiving then?

OK so long as the name isn't Moat!

Wasn't Percy originally from 'pierce eye'?

Who were the other Reiver clans? Armstrongs, certainly.

Northumbrian Reiver families? Charlton, Dodd, Robson, Fenwick, Armstrong, Milburn, names prevalent in North Tynedale and Redesdale to this day.
