408. CROSSMAN'S WIFE, OF TIBENHAM, IN NORFOLK.

            One Crossman's wife, of Tibenham Long Row in Norfolk, in Queen Mary's time, for not going to church, was sought for at her house by one Barber of the said town, then constable of the hundred, who when he came to her house, she, being at home, with a child sucking in her arms, stepped into a corner on the one side of the chimney; and they seeking the chambers, the child never cried (although before they came it did) as long as they were there: and so by this means the Lord preserved her.
