The Irish woman who was the last witch hanged in Boston
On November 16, 1688, an Irish Catholic laundress named Goodwife “Goody” Ann Glover was the last woman to be hanged in Boston over claims she was a witch.

It is reported that Goodwife “Goody” Ann Glover was deported to Barbados with her husband during Oliver Cromwell’s occupation of Ireland in the 1650s. Her husband died there as a result of his loyalty to the Catholic faith.

A widow, Glover then moved to Boston with her daughter, where they settled in the North End in the 1680s. There the Irish immigrant got a job as a housekeeper in the home of John Goodwin, where she helped to look after his five children.
