The heroine of this eighteenth-century cause celebre was convicted at Oxford Assizes in 1752 for the murder of her father at Henley by poisoning him with arsenic.

Her defence was that she gave him the drug believing it to be a love philtre, with the view of making him "kind" to her lover, Captain Cranstoun, and removing his opposition to their marriage. Cranstoun escaped and died abroad, leaving Mary Blandy to pay the penalty at Oxford Castle.
