  • Notes 
    • Steven M. Lawson:

      In 1649, as the "widow Marshfield," she resided at Springfield, MA, being previously from Windsor, CT, and having three children -- including one married daughter. She was accused of being a witch, and brought court action against Mary Parsons for making a false accusation. Mary was sentenced to be whipped, and to pay £3 to Goody Marshfield "or and towards the reparation of her good name."
