The daughter of Gentleman who lives in "the west" (presumably of England), who is bewitched by a maidservant (Anonymous 493) who worked for her family who would allegedly steal small objects and give them to her friends. After the gentleman's daughter reported the maidservant (who swore vengeance on her), she began to experience torments; her mouth would twist and her tongue would extend if she attempted to speak. She would vomit burning coals, hair, hay, and rags, she would be pinched, beaten, and bitten (the indents of toothmarks could be seen). In the end the gentleman's daughter's allegation supposedly caused the examination of some 20 witches.()
