Sailor Ron Folklore: Pendle Witches. Cottage found? (32) RE: Folklore: Pendle Witches. Cottage found? 08 Dec 11


Alice Nutter was a 'gentlewoman'who had nothing to do with Demdike, Chattox and Co. She was one amongst those named by young Jenet Devise, as being at Malkin Tower on Good Friday, this was the only 'evidence' against her. Unlike all the other 'witches' she did not pleed guilty, but insisted to her very end that she was innicent of all the charges. Why was she accused? Probably because she was known, or at least suspected of being a Catholic & harbouring Jesuit priests. Roger Newell, the local magistrate almost certainly 'schooled'young Jenet in what she had to say to the court.
