Master Robert Throckmorton of Brampton gives deposition accusing Mother Alice Samuel of bewitching various of his livestock to death; he claims the animals died after he he had "dealt verie roughly in speeches with the saide mother Samuell." This included two yearling calves, a hog, a nursing sow and a cow. He added that he was advised, once his animals started dying, to burn the bodies, so he had the cow buried in a hole with faggots and set on fire, and after that the deaths ceased. Mother Samuel is said to have confessed to bewitching these animals the night before her execution.(110-111)
