bullet  General Notes:

Probably one of the last witches in Dorset although it may be her daughter. The Diary of the Rev. William Ettrick is quoted in Joan Brocklebanks' book to some extent although there is no real indication of her birth and death. Research at Robert Hillier's website seems to indicate that she was born in 1758 and buried at Turner's Puddle on 6 May 1838. Ettrick was the rector of Turners Puddle and vicar of Affpuddle at the time of her supposed witchcraft.

Extracts from the diary of Rev. William Ettricke, vicar of Affpuddle and Toners Puddle, record the arrival of a new servant girl in 1804 and the subsequent sickness of his children and animals, and crop failures. Despite his education and faith, Ettricke believes the girl is practising black magic on his family and dismisses her in1805. With a full introductory essay on the subject.
