Mary Carleton (11 January 1642 - 22 January 1673) was an English criminal, most famous for defrauding several men through the use of a series of false identities. After she was convicted of theft in 1670 and exiled to Jamaica, she illegally returned to London in 1672. This time she was tried, convicted, and executed.

Mary Carleton in Atlantis[]

Mary Carleton owned the brothel Mary's Paradise in Avalon, Atlantis during the Golden Age of piracy. In the 1660s, Red Rodney Radcliffe called a parley of other pirate captains to meet at Carleton's establishment to prepare for the joint Anglo-Dutch-Atlantean offensive that was gathering to move against them.[1]

Literary comment[]

Given a discrepant reference to Carleton's age, it is possible that this character is not the historical figure, but an analog, akin to Stede Bonnet, Cutpurse Charlie Condent, etc.
