    Book details

The true story of witchcraft in old Connecticut has never been told. It has been hidden in the ancient records and in manuscripts in private collections, and those most conversant with the facts have not made them known, for one reason or another. It is herein written from authoritative sources, and should prove of interest and value as a present-day interpretation of that strange delusion, which for a half century darkened the lives of the forefathers and foremothers of the colonial days.

Review Text

  • By Nancy Lee on March 12, 2016

    Was more of a preparation for a thesis than an historical account of witchcraft.

  • By Linda Pagliuco on January 27, 2007

    This little book is not so much written, as compiled, by the author. John Taylor, in the earliest years of the 20th century, painstakingly combed through local town records (written by hand in that faded ink and all-but-undecipherable old script) from the 17th century. He provided an enormous service to historians by extracting and printing any and all documentation pertaining to the the subject of witchcraft in Connecticut Colony, and is credited for discovering the name and place of residence of the first woman to be executed as a witch, Alse (Alice) Young of Windsor. The value of Taylor's service cannot be underestimated, and this volume is absolutely essential to the study of this tragic but fascinating slice of American history.
