Character description

Anne Greene or Green (born 1628, hanged 1650, died 1665) was an English domestic servant who was accused of committing infanticide in 1650. She is notable for surviving her attempted execution, thanks to the intervention of physicians from Oxford University.  

She was pardoned, her survival followed by the unexpected death of Sir Thomas Reade was taken as the hand of Providence saving the innocent.
