    I really believe that this account of the murderous activity and the witch hunts that continued to the American shores, where literally thousands (mostly women) were murdered in the name of Jesus for Spirit Possession, should be put upon Public Inspection in the most honest manner so that Our Citizens have a fair introduction to Christianity (especially American Christianity) and related religions. The killing in the name of God has to stop.

    Were all of the other women burned at the stake? You do not mention what happened to them.

      Hi Mary,
      As far as I can tell Marie Lamont was the only one burned at the stake, however there is a possibility that two of the others were also killed in this way. All of them were tortured to some degree or other.
      The Authorities in those times focussed on the weak, the elderly and single women who had no protection. Marie Lamonts´ case was unusual in that her family was still alive in the village and she was very young.

        her family actually took off in hiding. due to this along with other reasons. some of which came to north America and dropped the last letter in their family name.

          Very interesting John, I was not aware of this.

    You have not answered the question if she was a witch or a charlatan. What is the answer?
    I have not read your book yet, but it certainly looks most interesting.

    Best wishes,

      Hi Mary,
      If you have received my reply more than once it is because of a problem on the web site – apologies!!
      The answer to your question is a difficult one to answer as Janet Douglas was a most unusual character who was wholly believed by many prominent people at the time.
      Janet went on to become a celebrity and attracted large crowds wherever she went, however that ultimately led to her downfall.
      Her story is told in Granny Kempock and you can judge for yourself.
      All the best.

        I and my mom love reading any information about Janet Douglas. She was my 24th generation back. Great grandma. It is so interesting to learn about her and anything new we get to read and find is amazing. So if you have anything else to share that would be great.

          Hi Michelle,
          There is a Chapter about Janet Douglas in the book. She was a fascinating and much maligned woman along with many others in that period.

    Hi, would it be possible to buy a print of one of the Gourock Castle pictures?

    • Nigel Rennie

      Hi David,
      The pictures are not mine to sell, I either have permission or they are time lapsed. You are of course welcome to enjoy those I have posted.
      All the best.
