is told in Malvern Chase that Mary of Eldersfield (1454), "whom some called a witch," famous for her
knowledge of herbs and medicaments, "descending the hill from her hut, with a small phial of oil, and a bunch
of the 'Danewort,' speedily enabled Lord Edward of March, who had just then heavily sprained his knee, to
avoid danger by mounting 'Roan Roland' freed from pain, as it were by magic, through the plant-rubbing
which Mary administered.
