Son of Fury

Synopsis: Sir Arthur Blake has inherited title and lands from his brother. He also has his orphaned nephew Benjamin working for him as a bonded servant. While he believes the lad was born out of wedlock and so cannot claim the inheritance, he is taking no chances. Benjamin eventually rebels against his uncle and sets sail to try and make his fortune. This may enable him to return to prove his claim to being the rightful heir to the estate.

My noble brother

he always made fools

of his women.

And now, my dear...

shall I tell you why I want

that brat of his here?

As a gift to you.

His presence here

will remind you of his mother

the woman Godfrey

preferred to you.

We cleans the harness.

Then we eat.


Take it to bench yonder and mind

you don't drag it in dirt.

I told you not to dirty it.!

Now we've twice the work.!

Fight me, will you?


- Paddy! Give over!

- How 'bout that?

Give over!

You wanna kill him?

- Master put him in my care.

- I'm master in this stable...

and there'll be

no beatings, hear?

He's calling for his chestnut mare

and Miss Isabel's pony.

Go and saddle 'em.


Ben, lad,

are you bad hurt?

- I'll kill him.

- Oh, no, no, no.

No talk of killing, Ben.

I worked for your father,

and I loved him.

We all did.

He let a man be a man...

whatever his position.

From now on you're bound to Sir Arthur

his servant for life.

He can do with you

what he will...

and he'll always

have the law on his side.

You'll have to make

the best of it, lad.

- And if you're wise, you'll submit like the rest of us.

- No.


You'll learn as you grow.

Come to my cottage

when you've finished your work...

and my wife will give you

a good supper.

I ran away.

You're limping, lad.

- Are you hurt?

- A stone in my shoe.

Why did you run away?

He He made me a stable boy,

and I've been beaten.

- God forgive us.

- Why does he hate me so, Grandfather?

Because you're bred true.

Because you have the blood of the family.

Because he knows that it's only the lack

of a parson's blessing...

that makes him

cock of Breetholm walk.

He shakes in his ugly boots

every time he looks at you.

I'm not going back.

No. No, you can't go back.

We must leave

before he finds you're gone.
