@rebecca arwood,
I believe you are speaking of witches being drowned, or perhaps victims of the Spanish Inquisition?

@rebecca arwood,
It's called a ducking stool (or "cucking stool").
They were not typically used as a form of execution, although the Wikipedia article mentions their use in identifying witches through a means similar to "trial by ordeal of cold water."

I thought they were discerned by ducks not ducking stools

It's a fair cop.
