    Jane Yorke was also convicted under that Act in the same year but was "bound over".

    The Witchcraft Act was not repealed until 1951.

    And please don't keep spamming; it's a bit, you know, childish
    Well, Rocky, since the aim was to simply point out that our Danish friend was being a tad ungenerous, the point I wanted to make is already made. But thanks for your contribution nevertheless!
    PS. Just looked up the Duncan case - fascinating! DS.
