Note
A detailed account of Elizabeth's final illness and death is given in R. G. Tomlinson, Witchcraft Trials of Connecticut, Glastonbury, Ct., 1978, pp. 19-23. On May 5, 1658, a court of magistrates in Hartford was called upon the trial of the wife of Joshua Garlick of East Hampton, who was indicted "that thou entertained familiary with Sathan." She was however found not guilty.

Collections of the Connecticut History Society 22:188-189 (1928), Particular Court Records."

One Friday in early February, 1657, 16-year-old Elizabeth Gardiner Howell lay feverish and delirious in her bed in the small, isolated village of East Hampton. Elizabeth's infant daughter had just been taken from her breast after feeding, and she crooned a psalm at the departing child. Suddenly, the teenage mother stiffened and shrieked: ``A witch! A witch! Now you are come to torture me because I spoke two or three words against you!'' Elizabeth's father, Lion Gardiner, the leading citizen of the community, was summoned from his home across the street.``What did you see?'' asked Gardiner. ``A black thing at the bed's feet,'' cried Elizabeth, violently flailing her arms to strike at what she saw. By Sunday evening, Elizabeth Howell was dead. So began a chain of events that led to one of the first witchcraft trials in the American colonies, more than three decades before Salem, Mass., would be forever marked by the sign of the witch. The accused was Goody Garlick, a woman in her 50s who lived just down the street. Her actual name was Elizabeth, the wife of Joshua Garlick, a farmer who had once worked for Gardiner on his nearby island - first called the Isle of Wight but later renamed Gardiners Island. Goody was a shortened form of Goodwife: Goodman and Goodwife were not names, but terms of address for a married
person who was not of high rank - similar to Mr. or Mrs. - but also not lower class. The death of young Elizabeth Howell got the little rural community of 33 families buzzing. Goody Simons told the local magistrates that as Elizabeth lay dying she told her that Goody Garlick was responsible. This led the justices, John Mulford, John Hand and Thomas Baker, to hold three weeks of hearings, where depositions were taken from 13 witnesses.
This account from these depositions, which are in the Town of East Hampton archives.
