Monmouth Rebel Scytheman

Christmas comes early - thanks to Benerson Little for finding this. Its an image drawn from life in 1687 and it's a Sedgemoor scytheman. Benerson says it's from 'Jamaica in 1687: The Taylor Manuscript' at the National Library of Jamaica (Kingston: University of West Indies Press, 2008), edited by David Buisseret. John Taylor writes mainly about Jamaica but he fought on the Royal side at Sedgemoor in the Horse.
