bullet  General Notes:

Hugh Burt's widow Ann is assumed to have been one of the first to be accused of witchcraft in Salem Court in 1669 and records of these court proceedings have been preserved (see notes under William Bassett). She was referred to as an "auld wich" and "old goody burt" in testimony of seven residents of Salem who accused her of a variety of sinister activities. The Quarterly Court Records of Salem give no indication that any action was taken against Widow Burt as a result of these ridiculous charges. Ann Burt's will was dated June 8, 1664 and she died on March 7, 1673. It is likely that she died in Salem since that is where her will was filed.
