The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant

Anyone see this? Thought it was marvellous the way 17th century half starved convicts looked so well, with nice healthy complexions, shiny hair and lovely white even teeth.

Yeah, and don't forget how they shaved every day, even when adrift at sea for months and managed to get a haircut too Wink

Still, looking past all that I did enjoy it and thought it was very sad too :cry:

It was very sad when her children died, I didn't even see the first part but I still cried!

Do you know though in those days it was the upper class who had rotten teeth as they could afford to eat things with sugar in them. Sugar was very expensive so the lower classes couldn't afford it, so therefore their teeth were probably in better condition than those with money!

Was it a true story?What did she do?Why was she deported?Stole a slice of bread or something?

I didn't see this but my elderly colleague (63 yrs) did regale me with every bleedin' detail of it ... I thought if that old git says "lo and behold" one more time I will deport myself!

(cos he kept saying "lo and behold" ... in case you were wondering!!)

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

Oh thanks for that..I will have a look.
I remember having to study the deportations when we were in school.It was desperately sad.Some people were deported just for stealing to feed their starving families.
It was just cruel.
In Penal times they used to send young teenagers as slaves to the new colonies too:Basically kidnap them and round them up and ship them off to work on the plantations in the States.
The kids or their families had absolutely no say in it.Shocking!
