Priss Fotheringham

Some details of Priss's sorry life are given at HistoryWeird: Born in Scotland, she was in London by 1656 and had married Edmund Fotheringham. "In the late 1650s Priss took up residence in a tavern on the corner of Whitecross and Old Street." The life of a prostitute in the 17th century can't have been any happier than in the 21st.
