Case 23511

Katherine Ignoram of Rishdon hard by Hiem Feryes, 23 years. Thursday 2 June 1614, 6.00 pm. Mater pro filia sine consensu [the mother for the daughter without consent].
Married 3 years to her husband. She is willing to lie with him, but will not permit her husband to have the use of her body. Feels a yucking up of her meat & is as one tormented that she cannot [breaks off]. It will lie in her throat not able to speak her eyes closed & her mouth & yet sometimes will bounce on her bed & yet cannot speak striving, & then it will choke her & then will weep & when they go to prayer the more ease she feels. Is foolish & mopish some days & at other times she will neither. Blood letting or purging will do her good. At some times of the year, a deadness began & a while after will grow frantic. If she take a vomit it will work & she will fall down dead for 3 hours & then afterward will come to her sense. Never now desires carnal copulation.
[Treatment information.]
Under tongue also.
