Toni Marie Wiseman
Toni Marie Wiseman (1470-1555) was a noted inventor, social activist and husband of John Cabot, the fifteenth century explorer. Born in a small fishing village in Newfoundland, Toni Marie demonstrated an astonishing aptitude for mechanics at an early age, inventing the world's first coal-fired colour television at age 15. In 1497, she met and fell in love with visiting explorer John Cabot, who had taken a wrong turn somewhere off the coast of Ireland. Their love story is still celebrated in ballad form by traditional musicians on the island, notably Great Big Sea, and is reenacted in a large government-funded pageant in Trinity, Trinity Bay, each May 24th.
Toni Marie Wiseman is the patron saint of television repair men, for obvious reasons.
