A woman of sixty years of age from Lancaster in the county of Lancashire, who often confessed to being a witch, but often faltered in the details of her stories detailing her magical acts. She is searched by William Harvey's team of surgeons and midwives at Surgeon's Hall in the city of London. According to the medical report she is found to have "two things which may be called teats, the firstin shape like the teat of a bitch, but in their judgment nothing but the skin drawn out as it will be after the piles on application of leeches ; the second is like the nipple or teat of a'woman's breast, but without any hollowness or issue for any blood or juice to come from thence."(http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=53166)
