      "Cresswell, Madam (d. c.1698), bawd and brothel keeper, of unknown
      origins, was made infamous by the slanders and libels of court wits
      and pamphleteers on account both of her prominence in the vice trade
      of Restoration London and her whig politics during the exclusion crisis. "
