Ned Ludd
Ned Ludd, possibly born Edward Ludlam,[1][2] is the person from whom, it is popularly claimed, the Luddites took their name. In 1779, Ludd is supposed to have broken two stocking frames in a fit of rage. After this incident, attacks on the frames were jokingly blamed on Ludd. When the "Luddites" emerged in the 1810s, his identity was appropriated to become the folkloric character of Captain Ludd, also known as King Ludd or General Ludd, the Luddites' alleged leader and founder.Contents1 History 2 In popular culture2.1 Music 2.2 Literature 2.3 Television 2.4 Games3 See also 4 NotesHistory[edit] Supposedly, Ludd was a weaver from Anstey, near Leicester, England. In 1779, either after being whipped for idleness,[3] or after being taunted by local youths,[4] he smashed two knitting frames in what was described as a "fit of passion".[5][6] This story is traceable to an article in The Nottingham Review on 20 December 1811, but there is no independent evidence of its truth
