CHATTOX [ 45cm.]
Available as a 45cm. doll astride a broom in 4 colours, Blue, Burgundy, Gold, and Black. Please state colour when ordering. The feud that apparently existed between the Chattox and Demdike families, was brought to a head during their arrest and subsequent trial for witchcraft at Lancaster castle in 1612. The cross accusations of both families, against one another, no doubt helping to provide the evidence needed for their downfall.
Anne Whittle (a.k.a. Chattox) was the head of the family, she was old and withered and had practically lost her sight. It is thought her nickname came from her habit of mumbling or talking to herself. She was accused and found guilty of witchcraft at her trial in 1612.
