Think I've found another skeleton in my husbands cupboard

After finding 2 murderous Teasdales I seemed to have found another ancestor of my husbands tried for witchcraft. He says sure it isn't your family. I told him mine are only a load of drunken layabouts. At least it's got him interested. Can't prove it but all three sur names mentioned both as witches and victim in the small village of Denby are surnames in his family and were from Denby. Trouble is I can only get back about to 1690 and need to get back to 1674. I'd really like to connect these to his family for definite. Names involved are Susan Hinchcliffe and Ann Shillitoe as the accused and Thomas Haigh as the supposed victim. They were found not guilty as they had 40 character witnesses from their village testify what good godfearing people they were.
