Mary Poole is accused of being a witch. A gentleman claims that about seven years ago, he crossed paths with Mary Poole on Sutors-Hill, between Graves-end and Rochester. After an exchange of words, he gives her a cut with his whip and rides away, but within forty yards, his horse fell and she overtook him. Believing his horse had been bewitched, he concludes Mary Poole must be a witch.(2)
