Mother Alice Samuel is persuaded to confess while on the gallows ladder on the day of her execution before Master Doctor Chamberlin. She names her familiars as Pluck, Catch and White, restates that she had them from William Langlad, and claims that she sent Catch to Lady Cromwell to bewitch her to death. When asked why she bewitched Lady Cromwell, Mother Samuel says Catch suggested she take revenge for the Lady burning some of her hair and hair lace. She also confessed to sending Pluck to bewitch the Throckmorton children and cause them torment. White was not used against anyone, but sent him to the sea, and that White was the only one of the three who was rewarded by sucking blood from her chin.(112-113)
