Anne Cate (Maidenhead) claims to have received three familiar spirits in the shape of moles, named James, Prickeare, and Robyn. She also received a familiar in the shape of a Sparrow, named Sparrow, from her mother (Anonymous 345) circa 1623. These familiars allegedly spoke to Cate, and instructed her to "deny God and Christ, which this Examinant did then assent unto."(38)
