James Macleane (1711-1750) was the son of Scottish parson, and became known as 'Gentleman Highwayman' in partnership with his good friend Plunkett (also a Scotsman). Plunkett really was an apothecary, although it was Macleane's wife who had died. Macleane was an inveterate dandy, and this caused to make the fatal mistake of wearing a set of stolen waistcoats into the shop of the tailor who made them, leading to his arrest and subsequent hanging in November 1750.
