About John Porter

In 1692, during the witchcraft delusion, he and his wife Lydia were witnesses at court, and testified against one Goody Bibber, who accused Sarah Wildes of bewitching her, "and that said Bibber was an unruly, turbulent woman, would have strange fits when crost, was double tonged, very idle in her calling, mischief making, very much given to speaking bad words against her husband, obscene in her language, and could fall into fits when she pleased, etc."
