The Beginning

Considering there isn’t much on the very start of Agnes Waterhouse’s life, but theres enough. From what I’ve gathered she was most likely born in 1503, and lived in Hatfield Peverel Essex, England. The townspeople called her Mother Waterhouse, this suggests that she might of been a kind old woman, could of even been a healer of sorts. But none of that would matter when she was accused of witchcraft in 1566 along with two other women, Elizabeth Francis and Agnes’ own daughter Joan Waterhouse. Agnes will be the first woman in England to be put to death for witchcraft.
