Portrait of Mary Edwards by William Hogarth, 1742 from Wikimedia Commons (here.)

Mary Edwards (or Edwardes) has already been mentioned in the English Historical Fiction Authors blog (here) in connection with the arts and Hogarth.  She was a fascinating and strong-minded woman, not afraid to make decisions or to take her life into her own hands.
