17th Century New England, with special emphasis on the Salem Witchcraft Trials

Witch-Hunting in Early New Hampshire

In the seventeenth-century, the best-known witch-hunting cases in New England took place in Massachusetts and secondarily in Connecticut, but my home state of New Hampshire had its share along the seacoast. Eventually this area of my site will include information about the following:

New Hampshire and the Salem Witch Trials

  • New Hampshire's role in the case against Rev. George Burroughs (Salem, 1692)
  • Nicholas Frost of Piscataqua, NH (Salem, 1692)
  • Samuel Wardwell, originally from Exeter, NH (Salem, 1692)
  • John Busse, was a minister in Durham, NH, and was mentioned but never formally accused (Salem, 1692)
