  • Elizabeth Trewinnard, Lady Killigrew, was an aristocratic Cornish woman and an accused pirate during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England. She was the wife of John Killigrew of Arwenack, Cornwall. She and her husband received and stored stolen goods at their home, Arwenack House. In 1582, she was arrested and sentenced to death after she sent her servants to seize the cargo aboard a ship anchored in Falmouth harbor. Queen Elizabeth eventually pardoned her, and she was released from prison. Elizabeth was also known as "Old Lady Killigrew".
