Personal Fact of Roy Bean

Roy Bean was an eccentric saloonkeeper, adventurer and judicial officer. His claim to fame rested on the rulings he meted out as a justice of the peace in western Texas during the late 19th century. Leaving home at an early age he dodged the law-enforcers and the several people he cheated and finally arrived in Vinegaroon. Here, he set up a bar which was frequented by rail road workers.

There was much lawlessness prevailing in the area that the desperate County Commissioners appointed him Justice of the Peace of the Pecos County. When he moved from Vinegaroon to Langtry, he continued to dispense justice becoming The Law West of the Pecos. His rulings were humorous, bizarre, and based on his own sense of right and wrong. It was not complicated by legalities. His customers served as jurors and decisions were made without delays and appeals.

He would refer only to the Revised Statutes of Texas. In legend, he is often called “The Hangin’ Judge.” Although he threatened to hang many, he never did. One or two were sentenced and taken to the gallows, but were allowed to escape. His cases were mostly minor ones and dispensed with promptly. The boxing bout that he organized made him notorious, and he eventually became part of Texas folklore.
