  5. The people of Salem suffered a great deal prior to 1692. Taxes were high and a number of people were killed by Indians, who were thought to be agents of the Devil. In fact the people of Salem who had arrived as colonists from Europe before 1692 suffered so many hardships that it is no wonder that many thought that the Devil was amongst them causing things to go wrong. Hanged in Salem, New England, 1692 Events in Salem, Massachusetts, New England As you know belief in witchcraft was not new in the 1600’s. In England the church had given licenses to ministers to cast out devils and Matthew Hopkins had been employed to round up witches for execution.

  6. George Jacobs was an old man who had to have the aid of two sticks while walking. When accused of witchcraft and taken before the magistrates, one of whom began the trial with the words, “Here are those that accuse you of acts of witchcraft”, George Jacobs replied bravely, “Well, let us hear who are they and what are they.” When his servant stood forward and accused him ofpracticing witchcraft George Jacobs replied with: “You tax me for a wizard: you may as well tax me for a buzzard. I have done no harm.” The magistrates asked him to recite the Lord’s Prayer and he apparently “missed out several parts of it”.George Jacobs was condemnedto death and hung in 1692.

  17. Witch Tests and Trials Witch examinations often involved looking for a witch-mark. This was supposed to be where familiars sucked blood from the witch. Sometimes large pins were pushed into the witch-mark. If the person did not cry out in pain (or if she did not bleed from the wound!) she was a witch. Other witches were ducked or thrown into water with their hands tied. If they sank (and drowned!) they were said to be innocent and if they floated they were guilty and hung or burnt.
