John Louder

-age 32 years old

-his grievance with Bridget took place 7 or 8 years ago-one historian puts it in 1685

-he had been living with Mr. John Gedney (wife, Susanna) in Salem Town as his servant. Susanna was witness to the argument in the garden when Bridget denied sitting on his chest.

-it is not known if he is married in 1692. However, it seems he was not married at the time Bridget tormented him.
