Anne Bonny the Pirate:Anne Bonney Pirate's Realm's

Anne Bonny was born around 1697 in Cork, Ireland (Charles Town ~ now Charleston) to a lawyer William Cormac and his house servant, Peg Brennan. Upon disclosure of the affair, Cormac lost his practice and wife, choosing to take his mistress Peg with the child they had, who would become the famous 

Anne Bonny Pirate, that became as deadly as any male pirate in the date of the Golden Age of Pirates .

To South Carolina for a new career. He became very wealthy and settle on a plantation,

but sad soon after he lost his beloved Peg to a deadly fever.

Anne Bonny's relationship with her father was apparently as strong during these first few years in the States as her temperament was. He spent alot of time teaching her how to run the plantation, and she became known as a fiery young girl who could take care of herself, as evidenced by her soundly beating a  

man who made a vulgar advances toward her. Her temperament, however won our over everything in the end, as her desire for adventure ultimately led her to marry a part - time pirate 

named james Bonny...a dangerous relationship her father rejected outright along with her.

[Note: Elizibeth Swan i believe was charatered after Anne Bonny. and Wil Tuner i believe was James Bonny the Pirate she fell in love with... This is only my guess but after reading about her history i believe this might be true..]

Their mutual infatuation with piracy led the couple to New Providence, Bahamas by early 1719, but

the relationship soon fell apart when James became an informant in governor woodes Roger's 

campaign to rid the area of such types. In May, Anne Bonny met Calico Jack Rackham and soon fell in love with her dream pirate. James Bonny was outraged, and by most accounts appealed to Rogers to have her flogged for adultery. He also refused Rackham's offer to buy Anne's divorce. She soon had a child which was sent to Cuba to be raised by other pirate families; apparently nothing was more important than going off with Rackham. 

Anne Bonny hung around the crew of a sloop long enough to determine the best time to steal it, and soon she and Rackham were off to sea, with anne dressed as a man. She proved just as apt at fighting as she was at stealing, and with the rest of the crew made plenty of noise in the Caribbean by attacking local merchant ships and fishing vessels. 

Her masquerade as a man had a twist all its own after she became attracted to a Dutch sailor who upon further inspection turned out to be the English woman Mary Read. They Became close friends and soon let Rackham in on the new secret, who had until then been in a jealous rage. The other 

crewmembers later would report that from then on the women only dressed as

men before and during a battle...

After the capture and trial previously mentioned, Anne Bonny apparently was never hanged

but her end is uncertain. Some claim she was reconciled to her father. Another ending 

that her acquittal was purchased by a former pirate who took her back to Charles Town to live with him.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
