Matthew Hopking claimed his witchfinding careers began when he overheard women in Manningtree talking about their meetings with the devil. By the spring of 1645, thirty-six women, had been implicated in witchcraft and by 17th July 1645 nineteen of them had been tried and executed by hanging at Chelmsford. The picture shows a Cartoon of Matthew Hopkins, English witch-finder with the witches he identified in Maningtree and some of their familiars (animals that were meant to have assisted them)
