Origin[edit | edit source]

Giles Corey (1611 - 1692) was accused of witchcraft along with his wife Martha Corey during the Salem Witch Trials. Since he was a well liked man of the community Corey refused to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. In an attempt to force him to plead, he was subjected to pressing. His execution by pressing was the only documented example of the torture in American history. It required the executioner to place several heavy stones on top of Corey in effort for a confession. Corey refused to speak and instead died after two days of torture. His strength to not allow his accusers to get him to say anything transferred into one of his belt buckles.
