Sybil Leek is is my witch grandmother on the Goddess side as Dr the late Frederick LaMotte Santee aka Lord Merlin is my witch father on the God side of my lineage of the Coven of the Catta. Dame Sybil taught and transmitted her lineages to my direct teacher, the late Lady Phoebe Athene Nimue back in the 1960s in the north Appalachians of Pennsylvania. I am the High Priest of that lineage which also contains several lineages through the afore mentioned Dr Santee, but that is for another post. The Catta Coven remains alive and well along the string of the Appalachians even to this day after almost 50 years in the States after starting in the New Forest area of England and before that the Gorge du Loup in SE France.
Some biographies say Dame Sybil was born in 1917 or 1922, so if the former as was printed in her obituary then this is her 105th birthday. Sybil Leek was one of the first witches who came out of the closet after the anti-witchcraft laws were struck down in England. She was very flamboyant and a prolific writer. The first two pictures posted here link to articles about her if you wish to know more.I cannot remember where i found these newspaper clippings, but credit is due to whomever preserved and posted them.
Blessed Be. Shawnus Merlin Belarion 3rd* CoC.
