A month after Jane Throckmorton begins to have fits, she is joined in them by her sisters Elizabeth and Mary. All three begin to cry out against Mother Alice Samuel, "take her away, looke where shee standeth here before us in a blacke thrumbd Cap, (which kind of Cap indeed shee did usually weare, but shee was not then present) it is shee (saide they) that hath bewitched us, and shee will kill us if you doe not take her away." Robert and Mistress Throckmorton begin to suspect that their children are indeed bewitched.(5-6)
