Mary Hill, a young eighteen year old of Beckington, Somerset allegedly throws up 200 crooked pins, after taking very ill "some time before Michaelmas last past was Twelve-Month." She is also seized by violent fits when she vomits. She spent much of her life "very much in the Neglect of her Duty to God." Her vomiting of crooked pins results in "a numerous Concourse of People to see her," whom she admits to being aware of in her fits.(74)
