Enid Porter:

Her Cambridgeshire Customs and Foklore, p175, contains references to two inhabitants of Willingham who were considered to have magical powers.

Miss Disbury, who was still alive in 1900, was considered to be a witch with power over animals.

Jabez Few, who was living in Church Street in 1911, kept white rats which villagers called his imps. There are stories about his rats. At his death, no one could be found to live in the house.
