Anonymous 326 (Plural)A group of "wizards" from Knaresborough forest in North Yorkshire who allegedly practice and teach countermagic. (34-35)So many of these persons which fall within our knowledge do inhabit within the Forest of Knaresborough in the parish of Fuystone in which dwell many suspected for witches so that the inhabitants complain much of great losses sustained in their goods especially in their kine which should give them milk. For remedy whereof they would go to those whom they call Wiseman, and these wizards teach them to burn young calves alive and the like whereof I know that experiments have been made by the best of my neighbours and thereby they have found help as they reported.
