A woman from the London Borough of Southwark, known to be the wife of a water-man, who quarreled with her husband and allegedly bewitched Richard Hathaway when he was hired to make a second key to fit her home's lock. Hathaway initially refused to accept a drink from Morduk when working on the lock, but eventually accepted, and is said to have become unable to eat, drink or see thereafter. Friends of Hathaway's eventually brought Morduk to Hathaway and convinced him to scratch her, which restored his vision and ability to eat and see, but left him passing pins in his stool.(1)

A man from the London Borough of Southwark, known to be an apprentice of Mr. Thomas Welling, who was allegedly bewitched by Sarah Morduck when asked to make a second key to fit her home's lock. He was convinced to take a drink from Morduck after much protesting, and is thereafter rendered unable to eat or drink, and and blind as well. His friends, concerned about him, brought Morduk to him, and convince him to scratch her. His vision returned, as did his ability to eat and drink, but when he finally had a bowel movement, the stool was full of pins. His friends then consulted a woman (Anonymous 370) known to have some skill who advised them to boil Hathaway's urine in a stone bottle, but the bottle burst into pieces when they did so, returning Hathaway to his former state even though none of the shards touched him. He remained in this state until some neighbors assisted him in scratching Morduck again, though he eventually relapsed once more.(1)
