Name Description Original Text
Anonymous 161A familiar from Brightling in the county of Sussex, who is witnessed by some members of Joseph Cruttenden's household to be "tumbling about" when Cruttenden's house catches an unnatural fire, which "flashes somewhat like Gunpowder," and "flamed not." The familiar is in the shape of a black bull, and might belong to an old woman (Anonymous 398) who predicted the fire to a servant girl of Cruttenden's.Some say some thing like a Black Bull was seen tumbling about; the certainty of that I aver not.
