alem Village is now present-day Danvers, Massachusetts. Puritans inhabited Salem since 1626 as a place for trade and fishing. In 1641, a law in England made witchcraft a capital crime punishable by death. Before Samuel Parris took the position of Salem Village’s minister, a man named Deodat Lawson was the minister from 1684-1688. He left his position freely and Samuel Parris was hired as a replacement. Before coming to Salem, Samuel Parris attempted to become a successful merchant in Barbados, but failed. He relocated in Boston, and then chose to become a minister; he moved his family to Salem in 1689. During this time there had been other witchcraft episodes in New England, but Salem Village did not have any witchcraft troubles to this point. That is until it enters the preacher’s home. Originally, the young girls who claimed they were stricken from witchcraft that started the witch-hunt in Salem were Parris’ daughter, Betty age nine, and his eleven-year-old niece, Abigail Williams age eleven,. These two young girls, go on to accuse Tituba the Slave of witchcraft. As the episode continues, more young girls become afflicted and begin to name other men and women as being witches and practicing witchcraft. Betty and Abigail became the first two afflicted of witchcraft in Salem Village. Documentation showed that between January 16 and January 19, 1692 the two girls become noticeably sick. Symptoms described that the girls would “crouch under chairs and stools and twisted in puzzling postures.” The girls would also faint, claim they were being pinched, hysterically cry, have disorderly speech, roll on the ground, attempt to fly, tear off clothes, bark like a dog, have their bodies in unnatural shapes, hallucinate, and have hearing loss. It was not until February 24th, 1692 that Dr. William Griggs “diagnosed the girls to be under an evil hand,” meaning witchcraft. The next day, while Mr. and Mrs. Parris were out, the girls alleged that they could see who was tormenting them. On this same day, more being claimed to be stricken by witchcraft. Ann Putnam Jr. and Elizabeth Hubbard both said they became plagued by witchcraft. These two lived more than a mile from each other. Abigail and Betty continued to be sick, and claimed of their heads hurting. They named Tituba as their tormentor. Tituba confesses of alleged witchcraft and begins to name other witches. During this time more people become supposedly bewitched and the deadly Salem witch-hunts began.>GET ANSWER
