I'm new at this, but I've been given a head start by my dad (Richard F Knapp) who has been doing this for a couple years now.Recently I was shown a website by him that contained names of women convicted or accused of witchery before and during the Salem Witch Trials.There were three potential links in the Knapp family that I am looking to confirm or deny here.Please help me if you can...
Witch One - Elizabeth Knapp - Granddaughter of William Knapp.Daughter of James Knapp and Elizabeth Warren.b. 4/21/1655, accused of being a witch while she was "possessed", never tried.She was 16yrs old at the time (1671).May have been choreic.Eventually married and had 10 children.Location was Groton, MA.
Witch Two - "Good Wife" "Goody" Knapp (Also listed at Mrs. Roger Knapp) - No first name available (Any ideas?).She hanged in 1653 in Fairfield CT.May have been tried in Hartford.Possible first name - Elizabeth.According to one source may have also been Nicholas Knapp's wife, Elinor (although date of dead does not line up).
Witch Three - Mercy Disbrow/Disborough - Potentially the granddaughter of Nicholas Knapp.Potentially the daughter of Sarah Knapp and Peter Disbrow/Disborough.Was tried twice but never convicted.
