Character description

Mary Hamilton: quasi-historical character theoretically associated with Mary Queen of Scots and the "four Maries" who accompanied the young Queen Mary to France. Mary Hamilton becomes pregnant (perhaps by the queen's husband) and throws the babe in the sea. She is condemned to die for the crime. No record has been found of such an event outside the ballad, and the ballad has the name of two of the Four Maries wrong. The tale is told in the ballad of "Mary Hamilton," #173 in Francis James Child's "The English and Scottish Popular Ballads."
