I am trying to sort out whether it was my ancestor who was convicted and executed as a witch. Of course with hindsight we can determine that none of the convicted women were guilty as charged but they were unfortunate victims of their place in time and history.
One of my ancestors was Rebecca Nurse. Now a Rebecca Nurse was tried and convicted and executed as such. But was the convicted woman not to be mixed up with my ancestor of the same name. That is a puzzle I am trying to sort out.
