A man from Leicester in the county of Leicestershire, described as a Justice of the Peace. Amcot twice examines Joan Willimott. On February 28, 1618 she confessed to Amcot that she was a cunning woman, that Joane Flower "told her that my Lord of Rutland had dealt badly with her and that they had put away her Daughter," that she had a vision of the Earl of Rutland, Sir Francis Manner, Lord Rosse's son being "striken with a white Spirit," but that she spirit suggested he would "do well," that the previous Friday night, her "Spirit came to her and told her that there was a bad woman at Deeping who had giuen her soule to the Diuell," a piece of information for which it demanded payment, "although it were but a peece of her Girdle," but she refused. On March 2, 1618, she confesses to Amcot how she got her spirit, (form William Berry of Langholme in Rutlandshire who blew it into her mouth), that it was a Fairy "the shape and forme of a Woman," that she did promise it her soul in exchange for services, but that she "neyther did she imploy her Spirit in any thing, but onely to bring word how those did which she had vndertaken to cure." By December 3, 1618, Francis Manners would appoint Alexander Amoct deputy recorder.(13)
