The Ruth Pierce Incident, Devizes
« on: December 13, 2020, 10:32:10 am »
An interesting story came to light after reading The WILTSHIRE CORONERS’ BILLS 1752-1796

Apparently Ruth Pierce was struck down 'With a Lie In Her Mouth' in Devizes Market Square, and the money in her hand.

Which only goes to show that the local preachers put the fear of God into almost everyone.
