(around 1649) U.S.A.
The earliest lesbian trial in America took place in Plymouth, Massachusetts Bay Colony, when Goodwife Norman and Mary Hammon, 16-year-old, were charged with "lude (=lewd) behavior upon a bed, with divers lascivious speeches allso spoken." In an odd judicial decision, Goodwife Norman was found guilty and sentenced "to make publick acknowlidgment. . . . of her unchaste behavior," yet the charges against Mary Hammon were dropped.
Lucky thing for Goody that in 1649 there were no laws about lesbianism , or surely the puritans would have hung her like a witch.
