Synopsis: Mary Parish wasn t your ordinary seventeenth-century woman. She was a "cunning woman," who spent her time in the realm of magic, interacting with fairies, hunting for buried treasures, and communicating with the spirit world, along with her partner, the young aristocrat Goodwin Wharton. Drawing largely from Goodwin s personal journals, Frances Timbers reconstructs Mary s life in this microhistory and explores themes of class, gender, and relationships in seventeenth-century England. Mary s story provides insight into magical beliefs and practices of early modern history and sheds light on how class and gender affected everyday life.

About the Author: Frances Timbers holds a PhD in British history from the University of Toronto (2008). She has a long-standing relationship with Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, where she is a sessional lecturer. Her dissertation research was published as Magic and Masculinity: Ritual Magic and Gender in the Early Modern Era (I. B. Taurus, 2014). An essay entitled Mary Squires: A Case Study in Constructing Gypsy Identity in Eighteenth-Century England was included in Worth and Repute: Valuing Gender in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe (Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies, 2011). Timbers also has two peer-reviewed articles: Witches Sect or Prayer Meeting? Matthew Hopkins Revisited in Women s History Review (2008), and Liminal Language: Boundaries of Magic and Honor in Early Modern Essex in Magic, Ritual, and Witchcraft (2007). Timbers current research examines English gypsies in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, with the help of a two-year postdoctoral fellowship funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) at the University of Victoria, British Columbia. Her book The Damned Fraternitie : Constructing Gypsy Identity in Early Modern England, 1500 1700 is forthcoming from Ashgate in early 2016.
