A precocious child, Modesty learned to hide disobedient behaviour from her strict mother, as she was aware of the abusive treatment that her older brother, Credence, received. She sung anti-witchcraft rhymes while playing hopscotch, but out of sight of her mother (and her similarly zealous older sister, Chastity), she rebelliously threw away New Salem Philanthropic Society leaflets.
Modesty was described as a "haunted" girl with "inner strength and stillness." She also possessed an ability to see into people's psyches and understand them.
