1632 (ca.): The Key Witness [Patrons Only]


"About the year of our Lord 1632" -- as begins the earliest account of the matter I can find -- a miller named James Graham (or Grime) who worked near the small town of 'Chester in the Street' in England (now known as 'Chester-le-Street') found himself confronted one winter night around twelve or one o'clock in his mill by the gory form of a young woman with five large wounds on her head. Graham was walking down the stairs from putting corn in the mill's hopper; the doors were shut; and the woman was standing in the middle of the floor. He was horrified by the vision, and began to bless himself; but eventually Graham asked who she was and why she was there.

        The spectre answered that she had been the kinswoman and housekeeper to a local widower named Walker...

In 1632, James Graham found himself confronted by the horrible apparition of a woman... and, though he had absolutely nothing to do with her or her death, she was going to haunt him until she got what she wanted! Become a Patron to read the full article!
