Pentrevoelas Squire Griffith's Ghost






Category: STORIES OF SATAN, GHOSTS, ETC.

Source: Welsh Folk-lore

A couple of workmen engaged at Foelas, the seat of the late Squire
Griffiths, thought they would steal a few apples from the orchard for
their children, and for this purpose one evening, just before leaving off
work, they climbed up a tree, but happening to look down, whom should
they see but the Squire, wearing his three-cornered hat, and dressed in
the clothes he used to wear when alive, and he was leaning against the
trunk of the tree on which they were perched. In great fright they
dropped to the ground and took to their heels. They ran without stopping
to Bryn Coch, but there, to their horror, stood the Squire in the middle
of the road quietly leaning on his staff. They again avoided him and ran
home every step, without looking behind them. The orchard robbers never
again saw their late master, nor did they ever again attempt to rob the
orchard.
