Jarvis Ring (along with his brother Joseph) testified in the Salem Witch Trials against Susannah Martin on 13 May 1692[1]. Susannah Martin was convicted of witchcraft and hanged on 19 Jul 1692. A detailed biography can be found here: Susannah Martin.

Admitted to the bar April 7, 1702 for York County, Massachusetts He was a freeman in 1690, a witness at a witchcraft trial of Susanna Martin in 1692, a soldier in 1698 and 1702.

[Mary [nee Perkins] Bradbury was born on September 3, 1615, in Hillmorton, Warwickshire, England. She was the daughter of, John Perkins and Judith Gates. Her husband was Captain Thomas Bradley of MA. Mary's case was defended by Major Robert Pike, a magistrate of Salisbury. She was released.]

{Suzanna [nee North] Martin was baptized in Olney, Buckinghamshire, England, on September 30, 1621. Suzanna's parents were Richard North and Joan Bartram/Bertram. Her mother died when she was young. Suzanna came to Massachusetts with her father, her step-mother, and at least one sister. Suzanna North married George Martin, a blacksmith, on August 11, 1646, in Salisbury, MA. Richard North, her father, was one of the first proprietors of Providence, and he was made a freeman in 1641. Suzanna and George Martin had eight (8) children. In 1669, Suzanna [nee North] Martin was said to be a witch. This all began because William Sargent, Jr. told people that Suzanna had an illegitmate child with Captain Wiggins. Her husband George sued Thomas Sargent for saying that his son, George Martin, Jr. was "a bastard." Suzanna and three more were hanged on June 19, 1692, twenty-three (23) years after Sargent's original accusations.]
