The crowd jostled trying aimed to get a good look at the two prisoners. The women who had committed vicious acts of piracy alongside male counterparts according to one witness. Dorothy spin low. These two women were just as vicious as the men in their party wielding machetes and pistols Stolz to menace their prisoners. Dorothy testimony made it clear that these weren't helpless women forced into becoming concubines ends to a ruthless pirate. These were ruthless pirates and Bonnie and Mary read held themselves proudly as as they were brought in front of the court this despite the fact that their faces were dirty and their clothes hung ragged about them. They he gave no indication that they feared what the court had in store for them. The crowd was silent. One member of the courts stood and addressed addressed the prisoners. You Mary read and you and Bonnie alias.

Much of what we know of their lives. Before taking to the sea he comes from a book entitled a General History of the pirates by captain. Charles Johnson it was published in seventeen twenty four four four years after Annan. Mary's trial for piracy in it Johnson claims and Bonnie was the illegitimate child of a respected attorney. Ernie in Cork Ireland Mary read on the other hand was born in England and joined the navy at a young age while passing as a man. Though Johnson's book contains a number of embellishments. The following facts are indisputable by seventeen twenty. The two women men met aboard the ship of Captain. Jack Rackham there. The trio committed a number of acts of piracy alongside rackhams crew of nine men. Men Historians are uncertain. How Open Bonnie and read were about their true identities some maintain that it opened seed they lived as women and only donning male close went on a raid others claimed that they masqueraded as men throughout their careers as pirates but all these accounts definitively agree that Mary and Anne were close friends and that Calico Jack was in on their deception after months?

Our along with the rest of the crew Calico Jack was hanged on November. Eighteenth in Port Royal Jamaica and most of his crew followed load shortly after before his execution Rackham came to visit and Bonnie in prison during which she supposedly coined one of the most most legendary farewells in the golden age of piracy. I am sorry to see you here but if you had fought like a man you need not oughta have been hanged like a dog. Unlike their doomed fellows and Mary still had some cards to play at the last last minute both of them claimed to be pregnant a practice known at the time as pleading your belly doctors examined them and determined at at least as far as medical knowledge of the time could tell both women were telling the truth. The Admiralty Court granted them a stay of execution until after their children were born but life in the Caribbean during the eighteenth century held dangers injures of its own even when not facing the news the average life expectancy in this period of history was around thirty five to forty and though Mary read was no average woman she would not defied these odds sometime in the spring of seventeen twenty one. Mary read fell ill and died. She was buried on April. Twenty eight th seventeen. Twenty one by Saint Catherine's Church in Jamaica. Her story lives on in the mid surrounding the golden age of piracy and Bonnie on the other hand vanished from history.

The island was ripe for the picking for the British East. India company by seventeen eighteen word had gotten around about woods, Rogers pirate taming activities in Madagascar, and the British crown sent him down to the Bahamas to see if he could work the same magic down there woods Rogers arrived in new paradise. The very same year that James and Anne Bonny did with strict orders from the crown to end piracy in the British Atlantic. The only problem was these pirates weren't as sick of sea life as the ones in Madagascar new paradise like much of the Bahamas and modern day Jamaica was. Totally corrupted by pirates with no formal government for years, an ample opportunity to sell their loot. The British West Indies were an outlaws paradise. Local government officials had all been bought off by the pirates and most of the local merchants helped harbor this E faring scoundrels in exchange for coin as well. So when governor Rogers a former seaman and privateer himself arrived on scene, his strategy was first to offer the king's pardon to all pirates who ceased their activities for some pirates governor Rogers offer of pardon was enough of a hint to be on their merry way. They hoisted their anchors and set off in search of a more lucrative bounty, most wound up sailing east to Africa, where they ambushed, vulnerable, slave ships, other diehards ignored the king's pardon and continued piracy in the British Atlantic, a direct insult to woods Rogers and. The crown. He represented governor woods then set forth severe punishments to make an example of these outliers. They would be hunted down and prosecuted for their crimes which were now punishable by death. Of course, and Bonnie had already befriended a handful of these outlaws by this point, even though they hadn't even been in new paradise for a whole year yet she grew increasingly disinterested in her husband, James, particularly since he wasn't able to make much of a living for the two of them. Instead, she set her sights on these much more dangerous men among them was captain calico, Jack Rackham, calico Jack, got his nickname for his affinity for colorful garments and some say, his colorful temper he and his crew a small, but mighty gang of about twelve men often docked in the Bahamas and took no time at all to fall in love with calico Jack, perhaps because he embodied everything. She thought she was marrying in James, Bonnie a rebellious and somewhat reckless maritime man who promised to show an adventures beyond her wildest. Dreams and regarded her as a partner, not property also if an was indeed a high Bristow Phileas with her sights set on calico Jack, not even the roughest seas. We're going to keep her from him. Meanwhile, An's marriage to James, Bonnie was turning sour in part because it turns out James Bonnie wasn't much of a sailor. He struggled to find consistent maritime work after moving to new paradise with an soon Annan calico jacks friendship turned into something more and they began carrying on an affair right under James's knows the only gossip that travels faster than small town gossip is island gossip. So James certainly heard whispers of his wife's indiscretions. Perhaps that explains James's next actions after governor woods Rogers set up shop. James came upon the opportunity to work as an informant for the governor, and he took it. We don't know which came first, the affair or the informant job, but either way news of the others indiscretions must have stoked the flames of anger and mistrust between James and an eventually an-and calico jacks affair became all consuming, and they began to explore the possibilities of eloping together themselves back then in the early eighteenth century, divorce certainly wasn't commonplace, but it happened on occasion rather than file legal documents to signify a divorce or annulment would often happen is the wife or her current suitor would offer the husband sum of money that roughly equalled whatever dowry or fortune. He amassed by marrying his wife in the first place, essentially, a wife would by herself back from her husband with the help of the man with whom she was currently involved. Calico, Jack, went to James Bonnie and offered him such a some. Of money in exchange for divorcing him. But unexpectedly, James, Bonnie refused and since am- Bonnie hadn't exactly grown into the kind of woman who'd ever take no, for an answer that meant she and calico Jack had to figure out another way to be together. The stakes shot up immediately when and calico Jack learned that not only had James Bondy refused to let calico Jack by an off of him. He also told his colleague, governor woods Rogers about his predicament woods. Rogers put a bounty on calico, Jack, and ordered and to return home at once for a flogging. This perhaps was the last straw for an in a time when society was rigidly gender segregated piracy, offered a rare escape from a prison in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Women of an social standing were taught to be loyal daughters than LA. Loving wives, then devoted mothers suffrage was hardly thought in the ether at that point, women largely existed to serve the men who lorded over them. Marriage was primarily a property preserving system in the rigid confines of the capitalism of these new colonies and was merely a commodity. Perhaps she had originally thought that by marrying James, Bonnie. She was escaping the mainland culture in which wives and daughters were treated as property. Governor woods Rogers order was a harsh reminder that this was very much, not the case, so and clung to the idea of life under the jolly Roger with calico Jack there, at least she'd be free to make her own choices and have a shot at being treated as an equal. If she proved herself that is and remember if an had high Bristow Phileas than she may have looked forward to being the only woman. Allowed in the life of this ruthless, violent man, a whole ship full of ruthless, violent men in new paradise, just like Charlestown, the man of the house controlled everyone else in it and and did not leave her home and her father to sign up for that kind of life. So calico, Jack, and and did what true outlaws and pirates did best. They set sail late one night sometime in late seventeen eighteen or seventeen nineteen. When an was still only sixteen or seventeen years old, she donned men's clothing. Just like when she was a little girl back in Ireland and escaped new paradise with calico, Jack, and his crew of about seventeen or eighteen men. They stole a ship a pirate sloop called the WIlliam on their way out of the harbor. And because woods Rogers and his men were looking for a woman, they never even thought to look twice at a mangy all. Male, pirate crew fleeing in the night. Around
