  • Notes 
    • Bartholomew Gedney was a physician and native of Salem, Massachusetts, who participated as a magistrate in the Salem witchcraft trials.

      Gedney was present at several of the examinations and later served as a member of the Court of Oyer and Terminer. He was present at the examination of his friend John Alden on May 31, 1692, in Salem Village. When Gedney saw how Alden tormented the girls, he told Alden that he had "always look'd upon him to be an honest Man, but now he did see cause to alter his judgment."
