'Ann Marrow' Late 18th century. Convicted Female Husband

In July 1777, the month that, to settle many large bets, a British court ruled that the Chevalier d'Eon was indeed a woman, a trans man known to us only as Ann Marrow was convicted at Guildhall for wearing men's clothes and marrying three women. He was ordered to stand pillory and serve six month's in jail. He did not go down well with the crowd and from the objects that they threw, he was blinded.
