September 4th

On 4th September 1303, Sir Ralph de Heengham and a jury of 12 men held an inquiry into ownership of land in Hull and Myton, west to Ferriby, and of a highway to and through Anlaby to Ferriby.

On 4th September 1650, Ann Hudson of Skipsea was tried as a witch at York Assizes, and evidence was given to the court by Dynah Hunmansby and Alice Stevenson that her victim, Susannah Keld, had been bewitched and very ill until she had scratched Ann Hudson and drawn blood, when she began to recover. The events had happened 12 years previously. The surviving records do not say whether Ann Hudson was convicted and sentenced.

On 4th September 1709, the congregation of Cottingham church gave 3s6d in a collection for the Market Rasen fire, Lincolnshire. A collection in the dissenters’ meeting place raised 4s 6d.
