About Hannah Bosworth

Three daughters of Hopestill Tyler (1645 - 1734) and Mary Lovett (1652 - c1732) were accused of witchcraft during the Salem Witch Trials: Hanna, Joanna, and Martha. Their father and their uncle (John Bridges) posted a bond for surety in the sum of £100 for the appearance of Martha and Joanna.

In Nevin's " Witchcraft in 1692," in Appendix A appears the name of " Hope Tyler " in the list of the accused, but the author found no details of any proceedings in such cause. In all there were eleven of the Tyler name and blood who were accused and arrested. They were all acquitted.
