According to surviving records, a cucking stool was used since the 13th century to punish “disorderly women, scolds and dishonest tradesmen” by dunking them in water (usually a river). This form of public humiliation was often used at the time.
One New Jersey law prescribing ducking for scolds remained on the books, if overlooked, until the year 1972 when it was finally thrown out by a state judge.
