Group Description

Hannah Snell

"Hannah Snell decided to track down her missing husband by traveling in male attire borrowed from her brother-in-law, James Gray, whose name she assumed. "He" quickly found herself pressed into General Guise's Regiment. She fought with the Duke of Northumberland's army against Bonnie Prince Charlie. She deserted after a sergeant sentenced her to 500 lashes."

"During the 19th and early parts of the 20th centuries the idea that genders must be indelibly wed to particular types of bodies became more firmly established. Intersexed individuals continued to exist but became more and more hidden as medicine further pronounced them be defective human beings. However, transgendered people continued to find ways to express their gender identities. The 1920s was a particularly heady time of increased freedoms for females and some transgendered females seemed to have availed themselves of that opening. Valerie Arkell-Smith fought in the British military as Colonel Victor Barker. Gluck, born Hannah Gluckstein was a successful English artist. Jane Heap was an upper class British intellectual."
