Haunted Victorian House


My parents, brother and I were looking to buy a house. My mum and dad looked at an old Victorian house and put an offer in for the house.

The following month we received a phone call and a letter saying "you've got the house you put an offer on a month ago". My parents, brother and I got a big shock. We all moved in about two month's later. The day we moved in we had not realised we had moved in with ghosts!

When I got into bed and as I was falling asleep, I heard a piano playing in the dining room. I thought to myself "we've never had a piano".

The following morning we received post. One of the packages was all about Victorian history and the history about our house. I got really scared and wanted to move out straight AWAY!

My mum told me that when she was walking up the stairs she felt a really cold draft but the unusual thing was none of the windows were open! My mum also saw a maid bringing down washing.

That night people came round to our house to investigate the ghost problem. They stayed all night in our house (they're brave). I was still scared in case ghosts came to curse me. In the morning the ghost hunters told my parents, my brother and me that there are spirits in our house.

The next night I went to my bedroom and said: I'm glad I have history living in my house!

Thank you for sharing your story and welcome to YGS. I agree with others that we might need some more details here. It really does sound like a residual haunting rather than an intelligent one, in which case you definitely don't need to be scared. Also, how do you receive the history of your home? Did you send away for the information? Who sent it to you?

Your house is great, the spirits are the 'second owners' of the house.

Victorian ghosts are much more friendlier, so there won't be trouble with them.

This story is very interesting!
As Jackets said, it does sound residual.
Try to find out who lived in your house before you, names and everything.
Take care. ❤

"The following morning we received post. One of the packages was all about Victorian history and the history about our house"

What exactly was/is the history of the house? What was the time frame of all these occurences? (days, weeks, months?)

Did you contact the 'investgators' or did they contact you... If you contacted them did you get their contact information from the post that the 'history' of your house was in? If they contacted you, how long after recieveing the history of your house did they contact you?

Please if you can add any details it would be most apreciated. Please do not be offended, I know what my questions sound like, but I feel I have to ask them.

I read your story with great interest. You say your mum was walking up the stairs when she felt draft windows were open. Where are the stairs, which part of the house? Can you describe the maid.
