Spring-Heeled Jack - the Terror of London
Very interesting ... I like the idea that an aristocrat was paying someone to do it.
People never swoon and lose their senses these days.
There's a drum n bass act with the name Spring Heel Jack ... I always found it unusual.... Glad to know where they got it from now.
I wonder if Keith Richards Jumping Jack Flash is a misremembering of it. It does fit, and he grew up in a London old enough to pass down such tales (and change the name over time)

I think Spring heeled Jack appears in a Christopher Fowler novel .
