Anne Bonney - Woman Pirate

Record #:
North Carolina's most notorious woman was a pirate named Anne Bonney who was as blood-thirsty and cruel as any corsair who ravaged the coast of North America in the early days of the 18th-century. Bonney, who hailed from Cork, Ireland, came to North Carolina with her parents while still a child. Anne Bonney is known for her vicious disposition and impetuous spirit, casting off suitors for a life of piracy.
