When Lady Susana Carolina Matilda, a sister of England's Queen Charlotte, visited New Bern and Wilmington, she was wined and dined. She was, however, Sarah Wilson, a former royal maid, who stole jewels and clothing from the royal household. Condemned to death, she was deported to Maryland at the last moment. There she escaped and began her assumed identity. In Charleston, South Carolina, she was arrested - the how and what happened later is history's mystery.
