A famous account of supposed Demonic possession, which took place in Plymouth (England) in 1820. It centered on a 10 year old boy, John Evens, who was said to exhibit all the symptoms of a Biblical demoniac, having fits, dancing convulsively, speaking in different voices, and apparently relaying the utterances of a demon. After medical intervention (bleeding and blistering!) failed a Methodist minister, James Heaton, was called in and undertook two exorcisms, apparently with success. Heaton first published an account of the case, under the title “The Demon Expelled” in Plymouth in 1820.
