Found this and thought it was a rather nice little article to go towards future investigations.. might find something of use in it at least..

Have not had chance to read it yet but we never know what we might find in it.

Quote :

LONDON - A 350-year-old notebook which documents the trials of women convicted of witchcraft in England during the 17th century has been published online.

The notebook written by Nehemiah Wallington, an English Puritan, recounts the fate of women accused of having relationships with the devil at a time when England was embroiled in a bitter civil war.

The document reveals the details of a witchcraft trial held in Chelmsford in July 1645, when more than a hundred suspected witches were serving time in Essex and Suffolk according to his account.

"Divers (many) of them voluntarily and without any forcing or compulsion freely declare that they have made a covenant with the Devill," he wrote.

"Som Christians have been killed by their meanes," he added.

Of the 30 women on trial in Chelmsford, 14 were hanged.

Oh, wow, Steve!

I will definitely read through it. Who knows, we might be able to use it in the future or get some references from it.

Great find!
