Liverpool Albion (02/Apr/1855) – Seed Hill Ghost

This snippet was reproduced in the Australian newspaper The Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser (18/Jul/1855).


The people of Huddersfield have been foolishly alarmed for some days at the reported presence of a ghost in a house at Seed Hill, which made a great disturbance. The occupant even consulted a clairvoyant. It turns out that the supposed ghost was a young Irish servant, who, it appears, has considerably damaged the doors and windows, and some of the furniture, in her successful endeavours to impose op ignorant persons.
