Mother Shipton?

Just as an aside re-  Peters post; I have only heard of "Mother Shipton" In regard to an old lady who lived by the river in Knaresborough , North Yorkshire. She was a "Wise Woman" who made predictions etc. There is still a place which the public can visit called "Mother Shiptons Cave" where over a couple of hundred years or so, objects have been hung and become petrefied due to the minerals contained in the water dripping on them!Presumably the moth, was named in her honour?
