The Sheriff refers to robbing Peter to pay Paul. This phrase is actually about when funds from Westminster Abbey (The Collegiate Church of St Peter) were used to pay for the construction of St Paul's Cathedral around 1560. Long after the early 13th century when Robin Hood was set. Also, the first reference in literature was in John Wycliffe's 'Selected English Works' in 1380. See more
