Revenge from the Grave

Another diverting little snippet from my trusty Almanack of Folklore.

On May 20th, 1736, one Samuel Baldwin was buried at sea. He wasn’t a sailor and he didn’t die at sea, but it was his request to have such a burial, and he had his reasons.

His marriage hadn’t been what you might call an idyllic one – and his wife took great delight in informing him that when he was dead she would dance on his grave. Take that, Mrs B!

Mrs Baldwin off to pay her last respects.
