  • Notes 
    • "Sarah Lord Wilson was arrested with several others after a 'touch test' in Andover on 7 Sep 1692 that was conducted under the auspices of the Rev. Thomas Barnard. Her 14-year-old daughter, Sarah, was likewise arrested. Both Sarah and her daughter, Sarah, spent several weeks imprisoned (hellishly). Sarah's son, John, married the granddaughter of Samuel Wardwell. The Sarahs were released on bond and escaped being hanged; however, she and her daughter endured the unpleasant nature of prison life. They appeared in the Superior Court of the Judicature at Ipswich and were cleared in May 1693." [John M. Switlik, citation details below]
