Name: Anne Bonny
Age: 21

Anne Bonny was a daughter of attorney William Cormac and his maidservant.

When Bonny was 13, she supposedly stabbed a servant girl in the stomach with a table knife. She married a sailor and small-time pirate named James Bonny. According to legend, James Bonny hoped to win possession of his wife's family estate, but she was disowned by her father.

She and James Bonny moved to Nassau, on New Providence Island in the Bahamas, which was then a pirate hub and base for many pirate operations. After the arrival of Governor Woodes Rogers, James Bonny became an informant for the governor.

While in the Bahamas, Anne Bonny began mingling with pirates at the local drinking establishments, and met the pirate John "Calico Jack" Rackham, with whom she had an affair. James dragged Anne before Gov. Rogers to demand she be flogged for adultery and returned to him. There was even an offer for Rackham to buy her in a divorce-by-purchase, but Anne refused to be "bought and sold like cattle." She was sentenced to the flogging, but later Anne and Rackham escaped to live together as pirates.

Name: Calico Jack
Age: 36

Calico Jack was an English pirate captain during the early 18th century. His nickname was derived from the calico clothing he wore.

John "Calico Jack" Rackham is most remembered for two things: (1) the design of his Jolly Roger flag; and (2) employing two of the most notorious female pirates of the age as part of his crew – Mary Read and Anne Bonny (the latter of whom he had whisked away from her husband).

Name: Mary Read
Age: 28

Mary Read was illegitimately born in England, in the late 17th century, to the widow of a sea captain.

Read's mother began to disguise illegitimately born Mary as a boy after the death of Mary's older, legitimate brother (name unknown). This was done in order to continue to receive financial support from his paternal grandmother. The grandmother was apparently fooled, and Read and her mother lived on the inheritance into her teenage years.
