Witch Appriopration

If you are a grand daughter of a Witch they couldn’t burn. They might be because your Great Gran mama was on the outside yelling …

Mainly because, one, if you do survive being burnt alive (which I doubt many, if any did). You certainly couldn’t give birth AFTER that. I don’t think we can even do that these days. Okay, I am wrong with this, at least ONE woman has given birth after she badly burned, Turia Pitt. But that’s NOW.

Also, women and men weren’t burned at the stake during the Salem Trials, they were hanged. 19 girls and one “warlock” Giles Corey was pressed to death with stones. The myth of burnings at the stake in Salem is most likely inspired by European witch trials. Either way. Not a single Witch or Warlock, who was actually burned at the stake, survived.

Either way your Great Gran mama was probably a bad witch. What kind of good witch, stands by and let’s her fellow magic comrades burn, or hang? Why wouldn’t you do anything? I can’t imagine that a good witch would hear of these things and just let it continue, letting it peak between the 15th and 18th centuries, that nearly (and probably over) 3 centuries!

NOW, if you said that you were the great grand daughter of a witch that was burned, hanged or executed. THAT makes sense. There was a rumour, that while a woman was being burned at the stake, she gave birth, but the executioner threw the baby back onto the fire pile. I don’t know much of that is true. Girls, gave birth very early back then. So there is a good chance, that some of the girls, cause a lot were young girls, already had had children. Possibly.
