Anne Redfearne
Date of birth unknown; d. 1612, Lancaster, England

Anne Redfearne was one of ten women and men hanged for witchcraft at Lancaster Castle in England on August 20, 1612. Known as the Pendle Witches, there is still much mystery surrounding their case, which involved the use of witchcraft in the alleged murders of seventeen people in Pendle Forest, Lancashire.
