chime-child: Certain qualities, among them immunity from witchcraft and the power to perceive spirits, were ascribed to children born on Sunday, and a "chime-child" could see ghosts and was a natural healer. What consituted a chime-child was understood differently in different parts of the country. In East Anglia, a chime-child was one born in the "chime hours," at 8, 10, or 12, but in Somerset, a chime-child was born between 12 and 1 on a Friday. [Katharine Briggs's Folklore of the Cotswolds, 1974]
