However, since several of Dane's relatives and friends were among those accused of witchcraft, his statement is 32 T H E DEVIL'S DOMINION that magic was ubiquitous in early New England, but those who did turn to magical techniques were clearly members of a sizeable constituency. The extant sources reveal nothing about magical practice during the initial period of settlement. As noted above, most evidence relating to magic originates in clerical sources or legal depositions in which witnesses described the activities of cunning folk whom they suspected of witchcraft: few clerical writings survive from this early period and there were no witch trials before 1647.

New England diviners operated primarily as fortune-tellers. " Before coming to Wethersfield, Harrison had lived and worked in Hartford as servant to John Cullick, a merchant. One of her fellow servants, Elizabeth Bateman, was being courted by a young man called William Chapman, but her master disapproved of the match.

36 Unquestioning faith in the accuracy of fortune-tellers' predictions sometimes resulted in tragedy. When William Adams, a Harvard graduate soon to be ordained as minister of Dedham, visited the town of Wenham in August 1672, he heard about the recent "strange death" of Thomas Whitteridge's wife. 37 Twenty years later, during the winter of 1691-92, a girl who belonged to a fortune-telling group in Salem Village, Massachusetts, fashioned a primitive crystal ball by suspending the white of an egg in a glass.
