Bridget Bishop

Born: c. 1640 England Died: June 10, 1692 Salem, Massachusetts

Tavern owner and accused witch

Bridget Bishop was the first person to be put to death during the Salem witch trials of 1692 and 1693. She was accused of practicing witchcraft by practically everyone who had known her: her neighbors, husband, and employees all came forward to speak of being put under a spell by her, thus building the strongest case in all the Salem trials. No one defended Bishop. The townsfolk became convinced that witches were working in their midst, and fear quickly swept across the region. As a result twenty innocent people were condemned to die.
