Margaret Adamson witch?

F, #8049, d. 1662
Last Edited: 5 Apr 2020
  • (Deceased) Death*: Margaret Adamson witch? died in 1662 at Witch's Hillock, Caddam, Glen Clova, Forfarshire, Scotland, .1,2
    Caddam Clova
  • Note for Web*: My Aunt Margaret (Adamson) would always tell me that the last witch burnt in Dundee (or maybe even Scotland) was also called Margaret Adamson. Well, I can't find information about that, but I have found a story that suggests that in 1662 Margaret Adamson was burned for witchcraft at Witch's Hillock near Caddam in Glen Clova. http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/1507702
