Elizabeth Device alleges in her confession that the third time her familiar Ball appeared to her, he was in the shape of a brown dog; this was four years before. Ball urged her to make a clay image of John Robinson, which Device did in her mother's house, drying it with the fire. She crumbled the image over the course of a week, and about a week after it was gone, Robinson died. Device claimed she did it because Robinson had "chidden and becalled" her for having a bastard child. (F4v)

Peter Chaddock alleges in his deposition that, four years before, his wife argued with Isabel Robey; later the same day, he was working in the hay and became afflicted with a stiffness and pain in his neck. Over the next five days, he also developed a fever and thirst, but could not drink. He sent for his friend James to pray for him, which allowed him to drink again, and was soon mended thereafter.(T3-T3v)
