Alice Nutter is a possible ancestor of mine and I may make her a common ancestor of the main characters in my two books. Being associated with witch lore makes her an  interesting choice. My fictional cult will hold something similar to a séance and Alice Nutter may be the person I summon.

Alice Nutter appeared to take her accusal of being a witch rather well and this makes her a good candidate. I would prefer someone of intellectual brilliance, but who’s to say she wasn’t brilliant.

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett used the Nutter name for a reason.
