of a Witch. Being taken by some of the Parliament Forces as she was standing on a small plank board and sailing on it over the River of Newbury. Nice piece of reportage from 1643. Whether she was a witch, we’ll never know, but she is wearing an untied coif, bodice, petticote, kerchief and apron. The cuffs of her smock are visible too. No shoes though.
