Remember, remember, the 5th of November!

Tomorrow is Guy Fawkes Day and author Annelisa Christensen has a fascinating guest post up at Let Them Read Books about the Day and how her heroine's, Elizabeth Cellier, role in the Gunpowder Plot:

"For her part in the whole Popish Plot, Elizabeth Cellier was one of the most despised Catholics of the time. Nicknamed ‘The Popish Midwife’ (‘Popish’, like ‘Romish’, being an often-used derogatory term for Catholics), Cellier foolishly trusted a schemer she met in prison to do some work for her, but was unfortunately betrayed by him. Already a well-known Catholic, associated by her work as midwife to Anne Hyde, the Duke of York’s (future King James II) Catholic first wife. She became notorious when certain incriminating documents were found in a tub of flour in her kitchen ‘between the pewter’ (giving rise to calling her plot, ‘The Mealtub Plot’). Her subsequent treason trial made her the talk of the town – discussed in coffee houses, sneered at in the streets, mocked in the taverns. And, while she was in prison on 17th November 1679, an effigy of her was carried with all the other religious effigies on a float through the city and burned on a huge bonfire outside of the Green Club (the seat of Oates’s Protestant cronies)."
