Weaver Robert Pease’s wife Sarah was accused of spectral torment on May 23, and was brought in to Salem Village for questioning by Constable Peter Osgood. The complaint, made by Nathaniel Ingersoll and Thomas Rayment, accused Goody Pease of sending her specter to torment Abigail Williams, Mary Warren, Elizabeth Hubbard, and others. Also arrested on the 23rd were John Proctor’s son Benjamin, and Benjamin’s aunt Mary DeRich. All were questioned on the day of their arrest, although no notes of the examinations survive. According to John Wells in The Peabody Story, the Pease family “resided in a dwelling that later became the first school of Peabody,” at 62 Central Street. Today it is a private residence.
