"Mrs Southcott"
by hector

Joanna Southcott (1750-1814), a domestic servant and daughter of a Devon farmer, claimed to be a prophet.  At 64, she even announced she would give birth to the Messiah.  When she died, two months after the Messiah failed to appear, she left behind a sealed box of prophecies and over 100,000 followers, calling themselves Southcottians.

One of her prophecies was that the Day of Judgement would come in 2004.
