The Epping Hunt was a ‘Common Hunt’ and in the 18th century it began to attract large numbers of Londoners. Satirist Thomas Rowlandson portrayed the perceived stupidity of ‘Cockneys’ in the rural setting. In an attempt to upgrade its image the Epping Hunt became a ‘Lady’s Hunt’ which gave more for Rowlandson to satirise.
