Alse (Alice) Young

Alse (Alice) Young
Year: 1647
Town: Windsor
Outcome: Guilty, hanged

As mentioned above, Alse Young was the first recorded person to be executed for witchcraft in New England. According to local historian Katherine Spada-Basto, she was hanged on May 26th of the year, most likely in the area of Hartford where Trinity College now stands and was formerly known as Gallows Hill. Others claim that she was hanged at Meeting House Square, which is the current location of the Old State House. Her execution is mentioned in a single sentence in Massachusetts Bay Colony Gov. John Winthrop's journal, and also in the diary of Matthew Grant, the town clerk of Windsor. Sadly, there is scant other information about Alse, other than she was most likely the wife or daughter of John Young, and that she had a daughter named Alice Young Beamon, who would be accused—although not executed—of the same crime in Springfield, Mass., 30 years later.

Of course, our favorite version of the story is The Grimm Generation's song "Alse Young."

I discovered a while back about Alse Young on ancestry.com. She was my 10th great grandmother on my father's side of the family. I told my aunt about Alse and she was mortified cause of the fact my family was really religious. My sister did not believe me but then again she is a present B---- and we have never gotten along anyway. Would love to know if there is any books out there that tell of the new England and Salem witches.

Hi! I would love to hear from anyone who's related to her. Alse, Alice, or Achsah is my 9th great grandmother on my father's side. It's quite a surprise to read about what went on in those days, in regards to witchcraft! If you'd like to communicate with me, email me at [email protected] It would be pretty fascinating to compare notes!
