Her parents owned a sugar cane plantation in Barbados. She is not used to hard labor because she is used to having slaves do the work for her. She is used to having a lot of free time and doing what she pleases. The structure and rules of the Puritan society frustrate her. She knows how to swim which was thought as a sign of witchcraft in women during this time period. She has the habit of speaking her mind whereas Puritans know how to hold their tounges.
