Witches were burned in Scotland, but not in England (Not nit-picking, it's an important distinction since until the 18thC they were different countries)
On the Witchways list they seem to make no distinction between people being accused of witchcraft and being actually executed for it - for example, they include Joan of Arc who was burned for heresy, and any charges of witchcraft were incidental to the main charge of heresy.
In England burning was reserved for the crimes of heresy or treason, while witchcraft was a secular crime and the punishment was hanging.
Of course, someone who was charged with witchcraft AND heresy might well be burned, but they were burned for being a heretic, not a witch.
Margery Jordemain was one of these latter. Having used her witchcraft against the King she was guilty of treason as well as witchcraft and was burned, not because she was a witch, but because she was a traitor.
