This chapter describes Mrs. Rudd's writings of her life. It notes that Mrs. Rudd wrote the first version of her life, her “Case”, just after her arrest in February. It adds that after the brothers' trial and her remand to Newgate she wrote another version, published this time as a pamphlet, “Facts”. It observes that a number of themes appeared repeatedly in her publications noting that the most prominent among the themes was the discussion she offered of her “two families”. It describes the two families where one family consisted of the aristocratic connections she claimed for herself, which played the largest role in constituting her own identity; the other was the family she had created with Daniel and their three children including the other Perreaus.

Keywords:   Mrs. Rudd's writings, Case, Newgate, Facts, aristocratic connections, Daniel, Perreaus
