  11. Normally Whit I wouldn't deem to question another mans comments, but what we have here is a ducking as opposed to the 'swimming' of a suspected witch. And contrary to popular belief, the women were attached to ropes to prevent them from drowning. If however the water did reject them there was a chance that they would be hanged, although it was usual to look for other evidence of witchcraft as well...
