Lord Cornbury

The famous British governor of New York at the opening of the eighteenth century, who was thrown into prison for debt, was a cousin of Queen Anne. He was also accused of cross dressing. Some historians question this, others think it likely true. Rutherfurd takes the view that he was a cross-dresser, and gives some detail of the particular form his cross-dressing may have taken, in the second chapter of New York.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
