"Mary Read "(1691? -1721) was an English pirate who sailed with "Calico Jack" Rackham and Anne Bonny. Although little is known for sure about her former life, she was well-known as a pirate from 1718 to 1720. When captured, she was spared hanging because she was pregnant but died shortly after that due to illness. There is no record of a child being born.

Spot on.. believed to have died from fever in gestation hence no record of birth, believed by some the claim of pregnancy (the belly) was a ploy to escape execution a little longer

Yes Tom. Well done unionjack.gif unionjack.gif [unionflag] :clap: :clap: :drunk: :drunk: :clap:
When launched in 1843, Great Britain was by far the largest vessel afloat. However, her protracted construction and high cost had left her owners in a difficult financial position, and they were forced out of business in 1846 having spent all their funds re-floating the ship after she was run aground at Dundrum Bay after a navigational error. In 1852 she was sold for salvage and repaired. Great Britain carried thousands of immigrants to Australia from 1852 until converted to sail in 1881. Three years later, she was retired to the Falkland Islands where she was used as a warehouse, quarantine ship and coal hulk until scuttled in 1937.
Your Prize and over to you.
