Amelia the pendle witch

I have a new doll not a reborn but a witch from pendle

here is the story if you dont know about them
In 1612, 19 women and men from the villages around Pendle Hill, were accused of Witchcraft and taken before 'The Powers' - the local magistrates, Roger Nowell of Read Hall. After his examination, he sent them to Lancaster a journey of over 30 miles. They were held in Lancaster Castle, in dreadful conditions, from April to August 17th, when they were put on a trial found guilty and hanged.

With the exception of Alice Nutter, who was a gentlewoman from a wealthy family, the rest of the accused were very poor peasants, who lived in hovels on the land of various local farmers and gentry. They knew the ways of the countryside, and probably made a penny or two by providing herb potions and medicines, which meant they were regarded with great superstition by local people.

Although the story of the Pendle Witches is very sad, they have achieved international recognition

  2. Fascinating stuff! I just did some further research and it is amazing how well documented it all is, but beware Sheltie bud... being seen making small figures and effigies may have been their biggest undoing and what is it that you love to do.... :~D
