    1. Mary Bateman aka The Yorkshire Witch was hanged on 20 March 1809 at the Castle of York before a crowd of approximately 20,000 men, women and children. A festive atmosphere prevailed. Souvenirs were sold and families picnicked nearby. Victims of Mary's hoaxes were among the onlookers at this momentous occasion.From a very young age, Mary's behavior seemed to be that of a psychopath. She was dubbed The Yorkshire Witch since she claimed to be a clairvoyant. She used her imaginary supernatural power [...]


    2. This is the story Of Mary Bateman and boy she was resourceful! I really enjoyed this read, I like forensics science and this book gave me a good idea about how things were done in the early times. Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the advanced copy!Mary Bateman née Harker was born in Asenby, a town in the parish of Topcliffe on the south bank of the River Swale, the date of her birth was unrecorded, only her baptism’s date was recorded “15 January 1768” (approximative birth date late [...]


    3. Exploiting the vulnerable and deceiving the desperate were skills Mary Bateman excelled at. Known as the ‘Yorkshire Witch’ many believed that Mary Bateman did indeed possess powers to communicate with spirits and have the abilities to banish evil. Those targeted by Bateman handed over their possessions and their money for her services and moving from place to place ensured this was a woman who could evade the discovery that she was a fraud. That was until she became too confident and used he [...]


    4. The Yorkshire Witch By Summer Stevens is the life of trial of Mary Bateman. On the morning of 20 March 1809, the woman who had earned herself the title of ‘The Yorkshire Witch’ was hanged upon York’s ‘New Drop’ gallows before an estimated crowd of 20,000 people.Some of those who came to see Mary Bateman die had travelled all the way from Leeds, many of them on foot, and many of them were doubtless the victims of her hoaxes and extortions.A consummate con-artist, Mary was extremely adep [...]


    5. This book is about the life and trial of Mary Bateman. She was hanged on March 20, 1809 after being convicted of murder just days before. But Mary’s crimes began many years earlier when at the age of 5 she stole a pair of shoes. She became a very clever con-woman and thief, and while she was convicted of one murder, there were several other unusual deaths within her circle of influence over the years. The author has compiled the known facts about Mary and the society she lived in, in order to [...]


    6. Mary Bateman was what the Americans in the Old West called a "Snake Oil Salesman", but much more.At the time this book was set there were no doctors, social services or anyone whose job it was to look after the populace.She was persuasive. She knew how to influence and manipulate local people, who were simple folk, willing to grasp anything to make things better. Quite rightly she was tried for her heinous crimes and hanged in York, where throngs of people came from all over to watch the executi [...]


    7. I received a free copy of this book from net galley in exchange for an honest review. This work of nonfiction reads more like a fiction story which makes it much more enjoyable as non-fiction usually tends to be a lot dryer. I found Mary Bateman to be a fascinating subject especially for someone who studied psychology. This was a well written and well researched very interesting read!


    8. I recieved this book from Netgalley and Pen and Sword History in exchange for a honest and fair review. Thank you!I enjoyed this book. It tells the story of Mary Bateman, an English criminal and alleged witch, the Yorkshire Witch. During the 1780s, she became a minor thief and con artist who often convinced many of her victims she possessed supernatural powers. A con-artist, she seems to have had little moral principles, always on the look out for a soft target.In 1806 she created the hoax known [...]
