The Paisley witch trials, like other witch trials, asked children to name the accused. Due to this method many innocent people died horribly. Famously, for example, an eleven – year – old was asked whom`s name was Cristian Shaw. In early 1697, 30 people were accused, 7 were sentenced death. The rest, sadly, had their bodies burned until they were turned to ashes. Finally, the ashes were placed in a grave sealed with a horseshoe.
