The gripping story of an early media celebrity, and her journey from rags to riches and back again, via prostitution Fanny Murray (1729-1770) was a famous Georgian beauty and courtesan, desired throughout England and often to be found pressed to a gentleman's heart in the form of a printed disc secretly tucked into their pocket-watch. She rose from life in the "London stews The gripping story of an early media celebrity, and her journey from rags to riches and back again, via prostitution Fanny Murray (1729-1770) was a famous Georgian beauty and courtesan, desired throughout England and often to be found pressed to a gentleman's heart in the form of a printed disc secretly tucked into their pocket-watch. She rose from life in the "London stews" (brothels) to fame and fortune, through her career as a high-class courtesan. Her Memoirs (the first "whore biography"—included in this book) records her eventful life in detail. She was seduced and then abandoned, aged just 12, by Jack Spencer, grandson of Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough. Her luck turned when she caught the eye of the infamous Beau Nash, "King of Bath." But it was her return to London that promoted her to national fame and notoriety. After 10 years at the top, she was heavily in debt, and after some devious manipulation of the Marlborough family, she managed to secure an arranged marriage to a respectable man. The scandals of her past caught up with her as she was named in the national scandal surrounding Wilke's pornography case at the High Court.
