Mary Squires the Gypsy.
Mary Squires the Gypsy.
[n.d. c.1755.]
Engraving. 130 x 95mm (5 x 3¾"). Thread margins.
An 18-year-old London maidservant called Elizabeth Canning claimed to have been kidnapped on New Year's Day 1753 and held for a month, in a brothel in Enfield. She accused `Mother Wells', the madam of the establishment, of trying to force her to become a prostitute. A hideous gypsy crone staying in the house, Mary Squires, cut off the girl's stays (worth 10 shillings), and Elizabeth was imprisoned in an attic with only a few crusts of bread and a jug of water to live on. On January 29th she escaped through a window and walked all the way back to her mother's house in the City. Squires and Wells were apprehended, and tried at the Old Bailey; the former was condemned to be hanged, and the latter was burned in the hand and imprisoned. However opinion turned against Canning and new evidence led her to be charged with perjury and transported for seven years.

A month after Forrest drew this view Rodney fought the Battle of Martinique (17the April 1780). From the rare series 'Twelve Views of the Island of Saint Lucia' by Lieutenant-Colonel Charles Ramus Forrest (1750 - 1827). He was a British military officer who served in India, the West Indies, and on the staff of the Earl of Dalhousie, Governor in Chief of Canada, from 1821 to 1823. Although an accomplished amateur artist, Forrest's professional performance did not live up to Dalhousie's expectations and he was dismissed. He returned to England in 1823. His best known work is probably 'A Picturesque Tour along the Rivers Ganges and Jumna', 1824.
