About Anne 1696 Bonney, Pirate
Anne Bonny (March 8, 1702– possibly April 25, 1782) was an Irish pirate who plied her trade in the Caribbean.
based on Captain Charles Johnson's A General History of the Pyrates. Official records and contemporary letters dealing with her life are scarce. Most details about her life prior to her arrival in the Bahamas do not appear to be based on any primary source evidence, including the claims that she was born between 1697 and 1705 in Kinsale, Ireland; that she was a daughter of attorney William Cormac and his maidservant; William's wife was named Mary Brennan and her mother was named Peg; and that, when the affair became public, Cormac moved to Charleston, South Carolina where he made a fortune and bought a large plantation. He also continued his legal career. Diligent efforts to source all of these claims continue in earnest by pirate historians.
